... and a little peak of ecotopia, this is a beautiful little picnic area in Snowdon national park we colonised for a couple of nights. All walkers coming through very interested and supportive. Although there was much rain, nothing a couple of tarps can't deal with. Add the fairy lights and it's paradise!
Just heading off now to join Ecotopia bike tour (https://www.ecotopiabiketour.net/). Quite excited. Also wondering how I'll be cycling with a group, I've done most of my cycle trips solo so far.
I was inspired seeing your lovely watercolour sketches on your cycle trip @distel - someone bought me a little watercolour set and I had a go!
I think last painting I did was probably 25 years ago in school :/
Any tips/advice/resources? ... I have some way to go ...
Family death Show more
My mum died peacefully tonight after receiving a cancer diagnosis three years ago. She was a wonderful mum. Always encouraged me to explore.
I spent a month cycling this across Europe - powered about 90% from free/saved food, and £9 in accomodation costs https://social.coop/media/-9kQvutQoygkUBkWm28
... and a really crappy photo of the whole solar setup:
- 20w panel from photonic universe
- Genasun GV-5 MPPT charge controller
- What's up power meter
- Deben Tracer LiPo 14Ah 12v battery
- RAVPower twin 5v USB adapter (and USB tester on the end)
- buck/boost DC-DC converter (set to 20v)
- ThinkPad power tip
Just another wandering soul
