On the more isolated stretches of highway, engineers install solar panels to gather sunlight during the day, which is converted to juice that powers the lights that illuminate the signs all night. Well - he got out there at night with a hack saw and a step ladder, and he cut some solar panels off. He hauled them away into the woods. He had quite a few of them. He set up a whole bank of these solar panels, he bolted them to trees. He wired them together so they'd run a battery charger that recharged a whole bank of car batteries. With this juice he would run his television and his VCR. He watched movies all night with the guys in his shack in the woods. He had hundreds of movies that he'd kept from his marriage, some were his favorites, some were his wife's favorites, some they each loved equally.
