“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 31 – 4th June 2009 – Thursday, Noriega

Clouded over today, but our resident green woodpeckers are up and about feeding their young right outside our awning. We have decided to stay on another night here whilst Ant checks through the electrics again as the fridge is not getting cold at all now. The light comes on inside, but no change in temperature and although I’m not a huge fan of muesli at the best of times, when its covered in luke warm UHT its almost unbearable. Also the bulb has blown in Bees main interior light leaving us with the bedroom ceiling lights only and two solar garden lamps outside, which are only enough to indicate where the awning is after a midnight pee, but nothing more.
Ant has also now discovered that one of the solar panels on the roof is kicking out much less power than the other, in fact hardly anything at all, which would explain why the leisure battery is not charging when we are stationary. That along with the split relay blowing fuses, stopping the alternator from charging the leisure battery when we are driving, we aren’t doing too well electrically.
