Well..This Certainly SUCKS!!!

QUICK UPDATE: Got a new generator courtesy of my friend John. Same brand and model. When you consider all I put the previous generator through, you'll understand why I wanted same. More details will follow. I am more than a tad fatigued.

Original Post Below:

It's 3:15 A.M. as I write this. Using my inverter off of the car battery with engine running. I have The Conversion Van Of Wonders cranking in the hope of generating's a no go.

A few hours ago the generator died. Thus goes heat and electric. It's about 24 degrees in here.

Wish me luck! I have a friend already expected today who knows about these things, and maybe it can be repaired.

I don't think it can. It ended in a kinda bad way.

I don't have the resources for a new one. Not sure what I am gonna do.

Here's hoping....

Merry Christmas To Me.


  1. I can't guarantee you work or good food but come drive down to Austin and I'll give you an electric cable, and a restroom. Get out of NJ man! Email if you'd actually consider it. Maybe after the Restoring Love event you could just come south a little more.

  2. Thanks for the offer...LOVE Austin. 6th Street rocks!!! Was there in '96. Let's see how things play out. Right now, just aiming for getting to the next year.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Hi Scooter, It was nice to meet you and your son today.
    Merry Christmas

  4. Hi
    Dont care if you publish this or not, just a suggestion. It might be cheaper for you to get one of those " Little Buddy " Heaters, clear a bit of space in the van, and use it for heat off an LP tank? I bet Lowes has LP cylinder exchange, maybe wallie world does too. That way you could save generator gas, and wear and tear. I do alot of RVing, and LP is the way to go, my furnace is not as effecient as a buddy heater, and its still cheaper than running the gen.

  5. I have read so many content about the blogger lovers but this piece of writing is actually a fastidious post, keep it
