A trip into Mexico


In a beer garden at a Mexican restaurant, the story goes there were 2 seperate crews working from each side of the building to meet at the center.

It's obvious someone was a little off, when they got close they just stopped and quit.


Picture from our table









Picture taken a couple days ago, of a brand new Indian Casino built within 1/4 mile of the campground.

The casino opened today and the traffic was terrible, they had 2 cops directing traffic, and back ups on the interstate were about 2 miles long.

For the grand opening they had 10 sky divers dressed as Elvis's land in the parking lot at about 6pm.

Spending time in Yuma Arizona

Left after the super bowl and traveled to Yuma Az, Camped within 650 ft of the Mexican border.

Working on building new web sites with new software (trying to learn a new way)





Fellow from Montana, turned his pickup into a power plant, using solar, and wind.

The wind charger is using 2 ac delco alternators back to back and some bolted together blades I am not sure how well this works as the alternators need to turn at a pretty high rate to do any charging. Unless the alternators are modified as permanent magnet generators.

Interesting non the less
