OK, fellas .... haven't been back ....

... in the Wilderness long .... spend most of my time out in Civilisation.

Noticed a not-bad price for anyone thinking about GOOD QUALITY Solar Panels on eBay  that anyone who was thinking about  Camping/Campervan set-ups should consider. Quality Solar Regulator  should also be considered, of course.

Sorry Ken G - cannot remember why I didn't go for the Alternator option, but I'm suspecting that I was unsure/read ignorant -  about the better things like IUIO Charging Curves and such in those days.  There's heaps to consider and I  reckon that the way I went was the better option. Elaborate a bit more sometime.
