Hidden Valley

As usual, click on any picture to enlarge it.

Hidden Valley is a very special place in the National Forest in beautiful Bath County, Virginia. Miles of trails to hike, trout fishing on the Jackson River and a very nice campground. There were beautiful wildflowers everywhere. It is just outside Warm Springs and 4 miles from Hot Springs. There is a B&B right on the river, but I didn’t go inside. Testing our new solar system by Lew Farber at Solar Tech Energy Systems in Naples. Under poor solar conditions, cloudy skies, rain, parked in the trees with a bush hanging over the panels, the system performed great. Seven days with no hookups and no issues! 

I have not seen Kelly so depressed! After losing 5 big trout, he felt like he had lost the touch. I have had plenty of those days, but he doesn’t often lose big fish. What is nice to know is that there are big fish in that river. There is so much pressure from so many fisherman, it is a wonder anything survives, but we see they are well-schooled.

    The solar panels sound great. We had them on our house in Texas. They must be quite different than the ones on the house. Your storage batteries must be large. Can’t see them taking much in when there is no sun. Have to check them out. The TV in our camper is a piece of crap. Doesn’t pick up much. Did yours come with the camper or did you buy it later? Our truck/camper is over in Waynesboro getting de-winterized. I hope we can get together and go with you guys some time. The people who bought our house in Glenmore; I just found out they are putting a million two into it. Hope I can finagle my way in to see it when it is done. Looking forward to lunch. Billy

    I’ll get some pictures of the solar system some time. The batteries are fairly big, but they are lithiym iron phoshpate, so they are lighter, charge faster, hold the charge longer and last about 15 years – probably enough for me. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but both of ours are good ones. Love to go with you guys some time. Yea, looking forward to lunch next week.
