Funkengroovin Wednesday - Preview

While I was perusing the submissions for the YouTube Democratic Debate last month, I happened across this video. It was not included in the debate questions, but it is an interesting video. Even though this is a Funkengroovin Wednesday "Preview" it really has nothing to do with tomorrow's post. Sorry folks, but I've been waiting for an opportunity to show this, and have an excuse called "Preview".

We thought about getting some solar panels for the roof of our van to help recharge batteries (like the one for the fridge), plus miscellaneous items (computers, that sort of stuff) that need recharging. If anyone has tried using solar panels - please let Vagabondblogger know.

Solar panels were under serious consideration with us, until we moved to Cairo last October / November, when pretty much the '87 Van and '65 Bug situation came to a standstill. That's one thing about living overseas - there's some stuff you actually enjoy working on, like your cars, and some you don't (like making a rock garden, which we delegated to Number One Son). Unfortunately, all hobbies go on the back burner for a while.

I know people read this on Wednesdays, almost only, and for once, please provide feedback on any experience with solar cells / panels on a VW Van.
