QUIET GLAMPING on the TRUCKEE RIVER

Water's great! This camp site comes with its own pool!

Perched on the Truckee River with a good swimming hole, we had black beans with steak tacos for dinner, and a Jesse Stone DVD before falling asleep.  All's Tranquil in Tranqulia. At 9 this morning we are drinking our coffee, charging computers and cell phones, and listening to birds being drowned out by buzzing gensets. No Genset here. Why? 


SOLAR BABY! S O L  A R !
Our solar panels were factory installed when we order Tranquila.


After two years of using solar to power our batteries on Tranquila, we have become firm believers in solar panels - on our sailboat, our Airstream, and installation on our home is pending. In fact, we are such advocates, Darrell, has started a solar and wind power company. Erickson Energy Management is based out of the Northern Sierra. He is also in partnership with E-Marine located in Florida to provide RV and Marine solar and wind systems.
Tucked into our annual primo spot on the Truckee River.
A bit closer look at our shameless advertising.

  1. Amazing. Solar is a step to a brighter future, and I'm glad you joined up the cause. I'm sure you already know the benefits, hence trying it out on your own house. And I hope the trees don't cause trouble, as they could block the sun's rays. Keep an eye on those and you're good. Thanks for sharing!
