Not getting full charge

Coolish : This weather I don’t like, I won’t get caught boon-docking this far north again this time of year. I don’t like the cold weather or all the cloudy days. It might not be too bad if I was hooked up to power. Okay, maybe I’ll be less fussy after it warms up a bit today o_O

Walk: A nice short one today. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.41mi, time: 49:56, pace: 20:44min/mi, speed: 2.90mi/h.

Solar/Batteries: Over the pass ten days there has not been any days that where not partly cloudy and this is causing me battery problems. Today is the same, partly cloudy. With the batteries being at their upper limits of age and with so many days of not getting full sun, they are fighting hard to keep up. The solar is doing it’s job and right now with the sun high and not behind the clouds I’m getting almost 30 amps of charge, but as clouds float over that drops to near 10 amps and this means that the batteries never makes it to the float stage of charge which they need to do, and then hold the float charge for a few hours. Just not happening 😦 I’m using the generator near every night now for an hour or two but still that is not getting the batteries where they need to be. So …… I think maybe Sunday I’ll move to one of the electric sites for my last 4 days here at the lake. That will get the batteries back up at least, and hopefully the sunshine will come my way for my last 10 days of boon-docking for the summer. Come fall, I will replace the batteries.

Move: At the end of the month I’ll have about another 10 to 15 days before I start my summer gig and I’ll probably spend most of that time at the BLM land south of Grants where I was before moving here. My two week here is over at the end of the month so I’ll have to move elsewhere.

Today was very nice after the cold start this morning, but the weather man says it going to get colder for the next few days. Maybe they miss this time and it’ll be warm 🙂
