G'day from Loomberah

Say g'day and tell us a little bit about yourself if you wish. If you have a wind or solar power system, big or small; flaunt its specs here!

Hi Gordon,
I will miss your wisdom very much and appreciate all you have done on the forum,
You are a real pioneer for LiFeP04 batteries & RAPS systems with the runs on the board.
I hope we still hear from you still in the future.
Cheers - Leigh

Thanks for your kind words Leigh, Jaahn and Privateer :) I will probably pop in every now and then to see what is going on, and report on how my CALBs and 1 Winston are going :)

Hello Gordon. I am sorry to hear you are leaving. I have viewed your own website a few times, and can see you have far more in your life than this forum. Your effort here has been appreciated, and I cannot see you sitting around twiddling your thumbs. All the best to you for the future, and hope to see you dropping in to add to the forum from time to time. Best regards to you.

Thanks APR, only 8 days to go here.

I don't know what EM has planned for the forum- I couldn't get a clear answer on that, but I'm sure knowledgeable members such as yourself will be able to help with noob questions etc.

First on the list is to develop the aquaponics system a bit more- and I've got quite a few big trout to harvest before it gets too hot.

Hi Gordon and many thanks for both your technical expertise and more importantly, your practical off-grid experience. It's poignant to see your farewell book-ending your "G'day from Loomberah" but you'll need some spare time to catch those trout and enjoy the rewards of your farm and its environment.

All the best for the future.
