It's who you know.
One thing that didn't get done this past weekend is the backup camera installation.
I told a friend that tonight and she told me she was going to make a phone call on my behalf.
Next thing I know, I've lined up someone to install not only my backup camera, but also a whole house inverter and a solar panel, and this at an hourly rate that would be absurdly reasonable for an amateur but is a real gift from a retiree who made his living doing this.
I now have a week to do my energy audit thingy to determine exactly how much of an inverter I need, do some research on my solar panel to see if it'll suit my needs or if I need another one, find both items... and fork out another boatload (erm, RVload) of money.
Please excuse me while I run around the house screaming 'YIPPEE!!!' at the top of my lungs.
