I have a 450 KW generator at my dads house that belongs to me, all I have to do is go get the thing. At 1300 miles away, it can wait, it's not going anywhere. I wish I had that thing now, I'd be fixin it up to take with me turkey hunting in the spring. That way, I could run a space heater in my tent and wouldn't have to worry about propane fumes and possible suffocation.... Not good... Good post Shooter!
So you have nearly half a megawatt generator, (.45mw).
I doubt if it is going anywhere, unless you have a rail system close by. I bet it weighs more than can be carried on any road surface without special permits.
Lets hope that this is a typo or perhaps this is what it takes for the "modern american" to rough it.
My house uses less than 900kwh per month or about 1.25kw per hour. Probably our peak is less than 5kwh. We live rural and keep things cheap.
Please tell me that you don't have a 450kw generator.

Hey it's only 5 ton Had one at my fire station up in Maine great little thing to have
I meant "4.5 kW"... I figured since the everybody else was looking stupid, I might as well do the same.45kW generators aren't exactly portable either. I suspect it is a 450W generator. http://www.poweredgenerators.com/guardian/quietsource-45kw.html
