    Welding with solar power

    We met an interesting fellow yesterday, who uses a small MIG welder (120v), powered by inverter/solar battery bank, to create metal art while traveling. Is anyone else doing any small scale welding on the road?   I would love to hear what kind of setup has worked well for you.

    Van acting as Faraday cage?

    I see a very noticeable difference in receiving cell/data, radio, GPS, etc.. signals inside the van, as compared to outside.  It has me thinking back to all the foil faced insulation, reflectix, foil tape, etc. that I installed into the van.  I don't really mind this too much, I typically place...

    Pressurized portable shower I recently saw. Any input?
