Cool idea Jeff. If one did invest in the transmission lines out there, one
might as well set up windmills on the same land. The wind comes
hoooooowling down thru there, all year around. I was out there
on a motorcycle, stopped to drain my radiator {figuratively speaking}.
Not wanting the bike to blow over, I parked with the kickstand on
the downwind side. The wind blew the damn thing over on the
kickstand side. This was a 650 pound touring bike. Being all
alone, spindly little spike hoisted the bike back up and rode home. spike
