Loving this series but you should've put 1 solar panel on each side of the doghouse because the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.if you place the dog house door facing north/south you'd get solar power morning and evening.

Hello in North Bay area from Brantford Ontario
Love your channel and people who are with you from time to time. It's sort of nice sitting in and watching other people enjoying the outdoors but it's nothing compared to actually being there in person. Quite familiar with North Bay and the Lake Nippissing. Keep up the great achievements in surviving in the elements of your choice.

is there a link to marks channel?

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

how many watt output does the battery bank have? I went to the link but their website isn't working

It's funny. I have a friend that looks like Kevin and his name is Kevin King down here in Florida

So the Apex is just an inverter? I already have an inverter.

I've watched several videos, been enjoying them, a lot of talking more than I am interested in watching though….

Never mind, I found the link!

During Winter(snow) can d solar operated….thank

Aren’t you worried about squatters? Or do you own the land? Was just wondering

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

you can charge the box from your house or gas generator

I’m not afraid of heights, but I am afraid of dying

Good words to live by

Very Interesting video

Great job with a solar panels. I built 2 solar hot air collectors and put them on my cabin. Check them out on my channel.

Try this out, place a light bandit system on a pole that can track the sun throughout the day and bounce sunlight onto the light bandit that redirects that light down fiber optic's. Design a large solar vacume tube with four heat pipe's inside it. Design a parabolic mirror were you can attach the large solar vacume tube in the center of the parabolic mirror. Enclose the parabolic mirror and solar vacume tube in a protective canister. With the fiber optic's shinning down onto the solar vacume tube and parabolic mirror. Totally enclosed and protected. Heat pipe's super heat Gallium Aluminum Scandium alloy lava hot that kicks on a sensor that turns on an electrictromagnetic pump that circulates the lava hot liquid metal through insulated copper pipe through nintinol high output thermal electric generator's then through absorption refrigeration unit's configured into an atmospheric water generator a freezer refrigerator and an air conditioning system. Copper radiator laid onto it's side in an insulated conduit with the super heated liquid metal circulating through it to use drafting to pull air through the radiator for a passive heating system. Copper heat exchange coil in an insulated water tank for hot water from circulating the lava hot liquid metal through it.

It's probably a blessing in disguise that you kept the solar on the ground. I don't think it would be very fun climbing 40ft in the air in the dead of winter when you have to go brush the snow off the cells when you're getting no charge on a sunny day.

Where is the woodobo?
God bless y'all

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Full stop

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

you come across as a very calm and nature loving individual ! why do want to kill a beautiful deer ? talk to your kids about it because they are hardwired to care for nature ! we should all go back to our child mentality.

Nice area with that old stand. Glad to see you rebuilding it. Good luck this deer season, esp with the bow. Looking forward to seeing the videos. Especially a deer catch and cook.

The obvious solution would have been to rent a hi lift, or a cherry picker, or a bucket truck so you could install the solar up in the trees!

I'm sure with all your connections that you know somebody who works for the power company, a tree trimming company, or the phone company that would have been able to help you with a bucket truck.

You guys did a great job on the cabin, but I think you will come to find out that it is too small.

You have the mill, and tons of lumber, so I would have made it twice the size and added at least a separate bedroom, and a dedicated kitchen, with a big covered porch.

Yes, more time and labor now, but more rewarding, and useful for the family and friends later.

If you have squirrels or other rodents around the area, be surprised if you don’t, keep an eye on the leads for your solar panels. They love to chew on the insulation and can ruin your panel in minutes! Some screen around your frames down to the roof should help keep them out! Great to see more vids of the project. Your an inspiration for sure!

CAN'T FIND *MARK'S YOUTUBE CHANNEL*

You know if you guys have a running stream or creek you can use a alternator with a converter to make energy also!

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

How are you gonna keep Squirrels and other rodents from chewing the wiring?

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Sup Chris, another great video. You might need to patch those holes in the gen shack. =)

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Awesome

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Nice idea of solar panels.

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

You rant on about stuff that doesn't concern the cabin

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

That's not hunting, that's an ambush.

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Can you do a 30 day staying in the cabin challenge when it’s done please

May 10, 2020 at 6:08 pm

Great Job on the addition of the panels. I am a cabin off gridder myself. I agree with a previous poster that "the Inergy products are better for [your] adventures." It depends on your loads, but if you want to run more than lights and charge phones, you may naturally migrate to a more permanent battery, full-sun panel solution, like we did. But it's all about learning and experimenting, right? Shading sucks for panels – it really just takes them out. Even just a leaf on the edge will take out the series. Moving the generator house roof to the sunnier clearing is a great idea, especially if it gets you morning sun. The latter is generally better for solar because you get to bring the bank quickly up to charge (batteries more readily accept a charge when they are low in the morning). Anyway, nice job with the cabin. I like the positive vibe. ps. Would the wood stove dry out the trim (just thinking?)
