Personal fan array .. for Off Grid

A Mr Gadget project

I have accumulated a few 24 volt fans from junk printers

I thought it would cool to have a fan that would be able to run on a small 12 volt agm battery that can be recharged with the solar system in the Suburban
So, here is what evolved

  A clear piece of lexan and some short pieces of aluminum angle, the fans are wired in parallel and bolted to the plastic.
The nice surprise is it is very quiet, the 7 amp hr battery will run the fans for 2 days before a recharge is needed. Makes a great personal fan.

Recovery is slow , But steady

Since escaping 6 days in the hospital the recovery has been slow, but somewhat steady, I am able to take the dogs for walks every morning ( although shorter ones), also finally am over a major knee swelling caused by the drugs while on IV's for 6 days straight,
I have had a good week being able to go fishing for a few hours actually catching some.

The Doc's say it takes 4 to 6 weeks to recover

Outdoor Adventures on hold in hosipital

For the last six weeks we were planning to close the store for the 4th of July Holiday, preparations were coming along .

The plan was to go the opposite direction the masses of people go - (that would be  Colorado) .

I was planning on having the wife meet all the great folks I have come to love in Nebraska,

Buuuut,     Friday Night.... LIFE threw a Curve Ball,

I started to have stomach pain about 10 pm,   it got worse during the night (much worse).
At about 1am in the morning I am at a new emergency room place in Frederick  the started to some test, the ultrasound sent me over the edge, (in bigtime pain now). The Emergency Room staff set us up to go to Longmont Community Hospital

Come to find out I had an acute pancreatitis attack

Everyone have a great holiday .. I am recovering nicely so far
