The backhoe is really paying for itself this year, I just added conduit from the solar shed to the house for a much more legit electrical setup. I gave us 2 3″ conduits separated by a foot, the idea being that I want to have separation between AC and DC (a lot of the house is on 12V DC) to avoid interference. And I also need to pass some data. It’s all been in one bundle for years so I don’t think interference is a real issue but hey, now’s the time to give us options.
While the backhoe was on, I helped a neighbor dig holes for a pole barn assuring him a beer was all I needed for thanks. Little did I know that I would instead be introduced to a concept which was thus far foreign to me: the wheelbarrow full of beer & wine, which showed up at my doorstep the following day. I certainly love the abundance, but what really cracks me up, is the idea of Lou rolling around the neighborhood a wheelbarrow full of alcohol.
