Summer is coming into eastern Washington. It's starting to warm up finally. It's been an odd spring here this year. It's usually hot before now. I'm not complaining by any means. It's been really nice. We're probably going to end up sleeping in the escape pod when it gets really hot. It will be much cheaper cooling it than trying to cool the house. That being said, I ordered a new foam mattress for the pod. Unfortunately, we had to do something. Not too long ago, we accidentally left one of the cats (Romeo) in there overnight. He decided to express his displeasure with us on the bed. (Damn cat! Stupid humans!) I'm hoping the foam will be more comfortable anyway. It was a cheaper replacement too. I'll report on our comfort level at a later date.
Randy is going to order our solar set up this week. That should help, if not take care of, the cost of running the a/c in the pod. It's a big chunk of change, but it will pay for itself in no time. We will use it here, and be able to get mobile quick when our personal SHTF event comes to pass. We're already using the fridge in the pod. Ours crapped out. You can follow my logic here, given our situation.
