two years after we published this hack, I'm wondering how life is going for you after hitting the road? Hope it's great!

What a classic hardware hack. Just like watching an episode of McGyver!

Excellent blog. More please.

Nice....

Your idea reminds me of this guy whose blog I ran across: http://timmystoyota.blogspot.com/  - except he's in Alaska in an RV!

Good luck with your RV!  The view that you'll have sounds incredible.


As cool as the "RV lifestyle" sounds, I'm not sure I would like living wihtout a garage!

@Ben,

Clear air, chilly weather, spectacular views,

Would it be correct to assume that you have a Newtonian reflector with a big honkin' mirror?  Or intend to obtain one?  I know if I ever won a lottery I'd move to the mountains with the biggest damn mirror obtainable.

"When placed in warm water, the multimeter averaged 2kΩ."

You're not supposed to put multimeters in water!!!   (Sorry, couldn't resist..... :-)

I'm sure your new life will have idyllic and not-so-idyllic moments, but it will all be interesting, and you can't ask for more than that.  Best of luck with it!
