The problem is that I live in an area that is pretty cloudy in the early winter (mid Nov to mid Jan).

My thought would be to use a wood fired electrical generation method during those two months whenever the batteries get low. Is there such a thing for residential scale applications?

This is where a doctor is faced with a real dilemma. Is the patient using his pain meds for legitimate pain and truly does need more, or is the patient just trying to get more drugs from the doctor? It is not an easy decision, but that is one of the reasons that doctor's get paid the money they do. They have to make very consequential decisions about a patient's health and sometimes do so when a patient is being less than honest. And a doctor's liability seemingly never ends.

I agree wholeheartedly with your friend's predicament. I think a statement I like to use in class applies here. That would be to use as directed. The likelihood of your friend falling into the trap of either addiction or chemical dependence when using opioids for short term pain relief is indeed very low if used as directed. I am glad we basically see eye to eye on this.

As with most things in life, having attractive members of your preferred gender observe you maneuvering an unfamiliar trailer and vehicle in close quarters is a surefire way to make things end well.

Let's be honest: 1) if you are new to a rural area, most locals have been there for generations and they do not really need you and 2) if you are new to the area, there are plenty of locals who can take advantage of your "green" status to part you from your cash.
The barn raising, the community stuff is all great but for the most part it is a thing of the distant past. I am not saying that's a good thing, I am just saying it is the way it is.
