"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!

@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.

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

Excellent blog. More please.
