      Thanks for your input. I didn't bother with "some epic music" because that video really didn't deserve it. I don't think music would have made it any better. It was an idea I tried that took a lot of effort to edit and it really didn't amount to much. The only reason I made this video is for people who have followed my blog for 9 years.

    Do you grow any of your food? Do you drink the water you collect? Do you use wind turbines to generate power?

      1. I let everything die off in my greenhouse when I broke my leg two years ago. Getting back to some food production this year. 2. I had just bought an inexpensive filter system for my rainwater right before I broke my leg...again, looking to get that system online after my long recovery. 3. I had four wind turbines when I first came out here. I discovered a long time ago that the sun is a lot more reliable than the wind. Any wind turbine needs a minimum of 20 mph wind in order to produce usable power for charging and winds out here tend to be 0 -10 mph most of the time with short periods of 20 - 50 mph. The sun shines out here 350 days per year and solar panels are not prone to mechanical failure. For the rare times when we get a couple of cloudy days in a row - I just charge my system with a gas generator. Read all about it on my daily blog. https://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/

    When I look at the orange light on the ground from that evenings in the winter desert sun. I remember how cold and dry it was. I kinda miss it but I kinda don't. What I do miss is the summer monsoon season with all the thunderstorms and the greening of the desert. Now,  I live only a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico and it is so humid and moist year around, I cant describe. Yesterday it was a humid 85 degree's and I was running the refrigerated A/C in my house. When it is wet and cold outside. I run a dehumidifier with warm dry air that dries out cold and damp air inside. In the desert, I remember the winds in January how the sand would come in from the cracks in the house and under the doors in West Texas. Now its salt and rust. 'Rust is a constant battle too as well as keeping salt off the car and house windows.
