Stripping Down for Tonopah

One of the things that we expect to need and want at Tonopah are power strips, and quite a few of them.

However, Lisa really does not want to spend money on yet more Made in China stuff.

This is a prototype. Lisa hopes to make more of them, so I expect we will have more trips to Home Depot in the future.
