It's been three months since my last post, but feels like yesterday! A busy time. We are in our new home in Ozark, Missouri area. The movement of house hold goods went very smoothly..no major damage and very little scrapes and scratches...and all items accounted for. The moving company is one of the best I have ever had ...and I moved 16 times or so during my career to include five over of the ocean moves....these folks out performed those moves! We're just finished unpacking our last box....I'm guessing we should have had some more garage sales BEFORE we moved😏.....got a lot of stuff going to various organizations and churches.

Our Texas home is pending a sale. The folks that are buying it(hopefully) had a hiccup with their house sale and asked if they could rent while continuing their own sale process, they wanted to get their teenager in school before classes started. So we still have some lose ends...I've already taken a trip back to Texas.
In the middle of the move I got my Alu-Cab Canopy Camper. I'm very happy with it...I'm still taking it back to folks to have some stuff "tweaked" and other stuff added. I have not done any building it out on the inside. I'm still am trying to decide what will fit my needs and what I need/want to carry with me on trips. I have decided on my electrical set up. Based on the type/length of my trips I went the simple route. I am going to get a 200 watt solar panel, fuse panel for wiring and a Bluetti EB240 Portable Power Station 240WH solar generator. Based on what I calculated my electrical needs will be, I think this will unit will meet, even exceed my requirements. Its a all in one unit, lithium battery, mppt solar controller, sinewave inverter, etc..and the cost is less than if I bought individual components.
I've camped in it a total of 4 nights on my trip back from San Antonio, and it worked well. No major issues and I got an idea of things I'll need and don't need that I had in the Casita. Hope to start building it in the next month or so, but if not I can still go camping off grid by some lake or mountain stream....and put a smile on my face.
Hope those folks that are still stopping by and reading the blog are doing well have stayed healthy, and are able go out on some adventures. Until next time...Horst sends
