I know the feeling Don. I ordered 4 servos from Altitudehobbies Sunday night. I was kind of hoping that they would be here today. Oh well maybe tomorrow.

Yeas it has, I find it hard to believe too but it really has been. First one was 2007, the year of "The Raffle"!

I like SEFF but I'm not sure about next year. (2013) I want to attend some of the other events up and down I 95. SEFF kills my travel budget.

Well you have to make your priorities for sure. Every day money seems to get tighter and tighter and it does make it a challenge.

Just saw this morning where they are raising our military retiree health insurance on us 30% this year, and then another 30% next year and the next, and the next.... everything is going up up up...

Yea buddy. My charge control has been shipped from SolarTown. This is the heart of my solar set up. With out it, my solar cell is not worth squat. I hope to do a test run on this set up a few weeks prior to SEFF. If all goes well and my math is right. I should get about 12-15 amps from this system. It should be more than enough to run my camper and everything else I need.
