  The neighbor drives it occasionally so that it stays alive and well. In the future I'll be keeping it on a battery tender when we're not there, plus have the neighbor use it once in a while.

  I just love a good plan. I'm trying to retire the end of the year if they let me. What have you done with your jeep for the past months?

  Propane burns quickly if you're using it for powering your home for months after a storm. I bought one with auto transfer switch for my home here in FL and have a 1000 lb. tank. Thankfully haven't had...

  If you do get a generator, you might want to consider going with propane on the generator fuel. Diesel fuel only has a storage life of 6-12 months before it starts to degrade. Propane will last indefi...

  If you have solar Panels and Tesla battery bank with net metering then you do not need a generator at all. I use about 12 kw a day without running AC or about 25 when using AC. I am not very frugal as...

  You can't just show up with dog, kennel, luggage and ask around for a small speed boat to get out to STJ that'll just cost $50. That's ridiculous, Nugblazer. Traveling with large dogs is not simple. T...

  STJ to Red Hook? That's a very short distance. I'd just ask around for a private boat to take me. All you need is a small speedboat, even a dinghy. For $50 I bet you'd have lots of takers.
