Through good fortune and planning I'm  retired,and pretty much hibernate 
from November to April,so I am usually around...If we go away my 
neighbor can start it up...
  I have it all hooked up and only need to flip the main breaker 
(wouldn't want to hurt the lineman),and flip one switch,hit start on the 
Generator,and she is up and running..
