Nice to meet you all. I have been reading information on this forum for a while now. I posted my first post yesterday and realised that people would benefit from an introduction
, who I am and what led me here. I'll try to keep it brief as I wouldn't want to bore you all!
As the title says, I live downunder in Sydney
. I'm a 38yr old husband and father of 2 girls (10months and 2 years). My interests involve the former plus travel and leisure, photography
, hiking, fishing
and hobby DIY.
I should say upfront that I do not own a boat. My family
and I are gearing up for a road trip around Australia
in 2017. I'm in the middle of modifying our camper trailer and 4WD so that we can camp in remote
areas that have no facilities.
I have found a great deal of useful information here in the solar/lithium area of the forum. I plan to run solar panels
on the roof of my 4WD, lithium cells and all associated parts
in the cargo area, with the addition of extra charge input from the car's alternator
. Sound familiar?
We're also working towards using our road trip experience to start a new business idea so who knows, if it takes off one day I could be talking to you all about a sailing boat. Now that would be a dream come true.
Look forward to chatting with you
Cheers and regards, Steve
