Fog Wagon Solar Install

Fog Wagon Solar ProjectWhat to do with six Lion Energy UT1300 LiFePo4 Batteries?! The plan generally is to get close to 2000 watts of solar on the roof of the Fog Wagon (33x8) then follow the 50 Amp solar build sheet I purchased. I've broken this down to: 1.) Install...

Baja Foggers at Curt Gowdy State Park – Wyoming!

Baja Foggers at Curt Gowdy State Park – Wyoming!

Three nights at a cool Wyoming state campground. Cool because we left 90+ degree weather just an hour and a half south in Fort Collins to enjoy upper 70’s at Curt Gowdy. If you like to SUP (you know who you are) then you must visit. Expect 1 bar intermittent cell service and shockingly no dump station; but a really nice ranger station! Funky store and water craft rentals available. Lots of around the park hiking trails, competitive archery circuit and mountain bike specific trails and attractions. Oh, bring your camera. Most sites have a lake view. Not all sites have amenities such as electric and or water.

Only 16 camp sites, three which are tent sites; this small campground provided amazing space and screening between sites. I even ran my generator and nobody noticed. Between the sound of the rushing river, wind in the pines and those raucous jay’s, my Champion 3400 was but a whisper. I keep it in the bed of the truck which helps manage the sound.
