Bledsoe, We Have Solar!

Photos, photos, photos!
Saturday Jon Whitfill and I went out to Bledsoe and installed the solar panel and electric. Sunday Matt Weaver and I went out to check the battery was charged, and then seal the sign up.
And at dusk last night, all on its lonesome, the Welcome sign came to life! Happy Happy Joy Joy!

see that dot

In the middle of the picture? That's our sign from a little over a mile away. Taken with a phonecam. And wide angle no zoom. Trust me, in real life it was a beautiful rectangular inch of light floating above the horizon.
Success! Hooray!

Today the solar goes in down at site 001: Bledsoe. But first I'm changing the tires on the ATV.
