just recently watched most of the series back to back. in one video you refer back to when you made the solar battery with Jehu but it isnt actually in the video. is there a separate video for it?

i know it caused the fire but it would be interesting to see how it was put together

He's about a year behind in editing & releasing videos at this point, that event hasn't happened yet in the series.

This is correct the battery was built at the start of season 4 - which is no longer publicly available. We were asked to take it down as it was having a negative effect for the guy who built it, so we did.

The full story about the fire and restoration is coming up in Episode 7 & 8 available now via Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/kombilife/posts?tag=Hasta%20Alaska%20Episodes)or in 5/6 weeks I will post it here on TS when it goes live to the public.

RE the year behind comment - it's actually a little more than that, but we've spent the past 12 months working 7 days a week to get Season 4 and 5 done, and I'm very happy to say that we are almost done Very Happy

Popcorn Popcorn Popcorn Popcorn Loved it!!!- especially the memories brought back by Leah 's seasick story and water crashing down-- No one suffers more elegantly-- by the way -- of running the Chesapeake at night (Ya Dad didn't see any reason to stop just because the sun went down)-- when I got the worst case of Vertigo ever-- SO- just loved your little adventure and exotic places-- Keep up the posting- Bill

I see a "Made for TV movie " too- and K Spacy would have played the lead.

Wow. Epic. I was telling a friend about this the other night and he noted that such a trip might not have been possible in another type of vehicle. Given the VW has been around North & South America for so long there are always spare parts around somewhere along the line. Old world tech, and people who are familiar with how to keep them going. I wished I could have met up with you guys while you were in Canmore. Good Luck. You are living the dream.
