Putting the final touch on this one now but by tomorrow it will be open for sign ups to the MSB for the first few days and then if we do not sell out it will be open to all.
In this workshop we will be building likely three mobile battery back up systems in tool boxes in the back of trucks. The same systems Steven provides information on in his DVD series on battery back ups. I am looking for two students who want to drive here and have a system built in their vehicle so we have three vehicles vs. just my tuck.
For those students it will work this way…
- You will have to pay for all your parts and commit that you will have them with you when you show up, Steve will send a shopping list to you based on what you want as far as size, etc. You will email him and he will provide this.
- I will cut the cost of your course fee down to 100 dollars, basically to cover the cost of feeding you during this event, frankly the way I feed people it won’t even do that.
More details are coming tomorrow but the dates will likely be Feb. 13, 14 and 15 and students as per usual can camp on site if they want and may set up camp on Wednesday the 12th if they wish to. We will get a group rate at a local hotel and students who sign up will have access to the students only email list.
Often students share hotel rooms, airport transport, etc. but we personally stay out of that. I consider your happiness and experience from the time you get on my property until you leave it to be my responsibility, but once you leave it is all on you. So I don’t get involved with logistics like that.
This workshop will be 80% or more hands on. In addition to the three mobile systems I will disassemble the one in my closet and we will put it together in the garage as well. We will also discuss small one battery DC only table top systems and some other cool stuff.
I have to run some numbers but on this I have to fly in Steven Harris and pay his expenses and of course his fee as an instructor. As always we feed the heck out of people and put on a great event. My guess is the cost of this one right now will be about 400-450. Again final price will be released tomorrow, along with date confirmation.
The next workshop will be food forest planting and will likely be done April 3-5. As always MSB Members will get first crack at available seats.
