to hell and back

Sometimes in life, you take 2 steps forward, but find yourself slipping one step back. I have been euphoric of the overall result of enhancements I have made to Isolde's electrical system, audio system, and the installation of the DC refrigerator. I have noticed very pronounce gasoline smell in the cab, especially driving. I can also smell strong gasoline odor in the right front wheel well.

I thought I would make this series of post a photo album to showcase the timeless design of Isolde. At 25 years she withstand the assault of time and the exposure to the elements very well. No nip and tuck.

Something are worth waiting for. I order two of the low cost panel mount USB power ports for $4 each shipped from China. Similar product by Blue Sea sold for nearly $20 each.

splendid isolde - part 1

I have been wanting to take some night photographs of Isolde and Brunnhilde. To do this a tripod and a normal camera is required instead of a smart phone. There is no supplemental lighting used, just very long exposures.
