Test drove it when the lady across the road's live oak suffered a major limb break, partly blocking said road, and feel confident that any emergency storm damage beyond single charge capability would also put us well beyond screwed in other regards. Rub being that the manual recommends long term storage on partial, rather than full, charge and one could get caught half-charged and looking for a generator.

Called Olly day before yesterday and left a voicemail and texted him today but haven’t heard back. He may be on some wild adventure with no cell service.

Not getting the logs up until late worked out for me last year. Did a little fishing in my early goose hunting area last night. I heard geese off in the distance and saw a few. A good sign that they are still around even after the miserable heat we had. Caught 7 bass in about an hour's fishing so that was good too.

Heard back from Olly a little while ago. No cool adventures, just an old phone that crapped out and took him a few days to get into a new one. Said he’d get the ball rolling on logs tomorrow.

I started a 2020 logbook role call thread, I will make them as the request come in.

Sorry I was hard to get a hold of the last few days, I had a phone go for a swim and I just decided to go without one for a week or so, was pretty nice until work basically made me get a new one :lol:

Much thanks, Olly.

(No phone for a week sounds like a vacation.)

It was pretty awesome, I was seriously just considering never getting another one but I don't think that's the world we live in any more.
