In 1971, after buying their acreage in a very remote area of the Colorado Mountains, the Wood family began to develop their dream ranch. The history and wild life of the area provides a fascinating backdrop for their story of adventure and discovery in the wilderness. From the first Americans to the mining era and the building of the railroads, Colorado is steeped in the glorious history of the Wild West. The property was located in the middle of a cow pasture with only marginal access and the closest electrical lines were over twelve miles away. With no means of communication and the closest town twenty-two miles away, the family had their work cut out for them. After surviving a devastating blizzard with thirty people in their home, they understood the importance of understanding survival techniques. Their crazy but true experiences are recounted with frankness and humor. By sharing his experiences and newly-gained knowledge, Wood has saved many of his friends hundreds of dollars, offering his advice on energy systems and the challenges of building in a remote area. Through perseverance and good old-fashioned hard work, he and his family built their dream ranch in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.The porch, entry, overhead bathroom, and both bedroom lights are all wired 12volt DC. The dining room, kitchen, living room lights and all lamps are 110volt AC using the inverter. ... If you can find one it really doesna#39;t make any difference what kind or year as long as ita#39;s made before 1975 follow the main wiring diagram to the breaker system thata#39;s very similar to my system. Our water system is no different from your home only that my pump is a 12volt on demand from a direct source.
