    Great pointer! Buying a few acres near the Omish! They are the true pros that probably only lack security...and they would be probable soft targets of bad people...so I have to recant my purchase of some land near them. Now, a better plan would be to assume they will be all killed off and "bad people", but have a plan to take over the "bad people's" newly acquired Amish ground...then I could justify taking over the Amish supplied...which of course were technically the "terrorists" supplies since they snuffed out the Omish.

    I do have to say @winston , I don't care for that "attitude" that you show.... nor your reasoning. IMO, you are looking for folks to finance your operation..... not necessarily as viable team members. Your callous attitude most likely will get you shot quickly, post-shtf.... via just as callous folks that you currently call your team, if it suits "their" goals.

    "Pray I'm not that guy"? I'm confused by that...if someone promised you a 100% success rate, then hopefully you got a refund or another hunt....it's hunting...not shooting. But there are plenty of places that offered high-fence pinned in deer that guarantees a trophy deer. They charge by the inch though. 200+ inchers are well over $12,000. 130 inch deer are near $6,000. You just have to decide how good of a hunter you are and try to put the odds in your favor....or simply have a good job and who cares about money.

    Do you care to share you unapproval of my "reasoning".....be specific. And yes...specific...it's all typed out...so you can quote me...don't assume anything.

    I have 4 trojans...burried underground w/ my charge controller...how long before that gets ruined from corrosion? I just keep it to watch movies....small time stuff. So 400 watts per hour. I'm finding that 3 15 watt panels are pretty SLOW chargers. So I run the generator w/ charger.

    I know enough to waste money I guess...but I'm a realist. I know things go bad over time. I have gas lights...so...solar is just for entertainment...I can't remember the amp hours...180 each? I'm thinking I should be able to watch DVD's for about 60+ hours if I remember my basic math when I set it up...accounting for cold weather, 4 hours of good sun a day...no more than 50% total use of the batteries to prevent from cyclling...I'm just going from memory.

    I am sharing my personal opinion to you, I do not have to be specific. I just don't like it.... nuff said. I don't like the simple teacher with a 160 acres, give me $25K and you can buy in and so on..... it just smells..... like something on the bottom of your shoe left over after the dog did his business.

    And so on..... I have made my point and will continue to watch.

    Ya...with a "moderator" (YARD DART) suddenly attacking me for no reason...I don't see me being around long anyway. I find it strange when people attack people unprovoked...but that's ok...that's what we prepare for.

    I have 12 L16HDs in a 24Vdc Bank, tied to a Trace 4024... They cycle twice a Day, between Float and 24.3 Vdc... Keeps the Cabin running 24/7/365... The Genset runs about 10 hours a day.... (7Am to Noon & 5 Pm to 10Pm). My Bank is going on 8 Years old, and will likely get relaxed this next summer...

    @winston , I do not believe you are, as you represent yourself to be. You can't spell even simple words, your sentence structure sucks, and you use slang words thst would cause seizures in any Teacher I have ever known. (Including my wife).
    You remind me of Gun-Kid.

    You may need to read up on forum etiquette. I do not see where you were attacked. Your post? Yes. You? Not hardly.

    An attack would be if someone posted something more along the lines of, "You have some serious issues you need to deal with." But, I would be the last person to post such a statement. I would not want to break the rules of this forum.

    Moderators here, are just Monkeys, like any other Monkey... They can have opinions, just like any other Monkey, and express those, just like any other Monkey... It does NOT mean they are Speaking for the Site, or anything like that, so do NOT take it that way... If a MOD does need to do anything that is Site Related, they do so, after a consensus is reached with other MODs, and Admins.... Just so you know, how this place works... It is different than other Sites you may have Been...

    You have not been attacked. What you got was a warning, to which I'll add this:
    You sound like a commercial operation that may or may not be breaking even on the business end. You are also asking for what will amount to contributions to efforts toward improvement of your operation. If you want simply to spread the risk, incorporate and sell shares, see how well your pitch works. Now, note carefully, if you are concealing advertising materials by verbiage that seems to be exactly that, then you need to get the site owner, melbo, into negotiations over advertising revenue.
    Something just does not seem kosher. I've been wrong before assessing posts and posters. In this case, the burden of proof, establishing your credibility, is on you. We do not hold to courtroom prosecutorial procedures here.

    That said, further comms will be by private messages if staff action is needed.
