No More Apartment!!

Well I moved out of my EXPENSIVE apartment and now living in the trailer!!!  Talk about stress!  But it is all done.  I downsized so much.  I tried to sell what I could and trashed the rest.  It was something like 5 or 6 F150 truck loads of stuff that went to the trash!  I still need to down size some more but I am actually feeling better about this!  I just installed my battery bank and I am getting excited about more to come!  Here are some pictures of…

Cleaning…..

It haled here!  Pea sized hail.  So I climbed on the roof to see if there was any damages.  She held up like a champ.  No damage!! So AFTER the trash was removed, another bug bomb was needed to kill the rest of the living things.  I let that sit over night.  I have not seen another living bug after that.  YAY!  Now on to cleaning and testing stuff.  Awning did not work when I got the trailer because the fuse was pulled… weird.  I put it back in and…

My Paradise has arrived!!!

Paradise has been delivered to my friends land in Round Rock, TX!  Time to start cleaning!  LOTS to clean… All 3 slides work 100%!  MOST of the interior lights work as well.  Most of the exterior lights do not work.  I still have lots to test and clean.  My actions items list is growing fast!  BUT most of the items are small and cheap (FOR NOW).  One of the slides has been gutted on the inside.  The furniture for the slide is gone too.  Lots to figure out there.  Here…

Paradise Found!

I have found her!!!  I have found, bid, and bought my RV 5th wheel trailer!!!!!!!  YAY!!! Meet Paradise (yes, thats her name): I got her as a repo.  She is a fixer-upper, but I am pretty handy! She was a steal!  I will get her livable in no time at all!  She does not leak at all and doesn’t even smell!!  Im thrilled!!  You will be seeing more and more updates from me now!  I will be documenting this project from start to finish!  I am THRILLED!!!

LAST rent payment!!!

I recently turned in my last rent payment!  It really put some things into perspective for me… I have not put a deposit on another appartement!  I have NOT bought my RV yet… What am I going to do??  But then I got some amazing news from a friend last friday and I ran out to him later the same day to see it.           It is a good chance we are looking at my new RV!!!!  I will find out this weekend if I can…

MotoGP, 2 Nails, and a Stranger!

I dont know where to start… I LOVE going to MotoGP.  2017 was no exception!  It was a much more eventful year than previous ones.  This was the first year I got 3 day passes!  Being a veteran is paying off!  I went with two amazing friends Anthony and his woman, Helen Saturday and Sunday.  This was their first time going.   Saturday: Saturday it was COLD (Texas cold) all day.  High was around 65°.  That may not seem cold to you, but the day before it was 85°.  We…

Why I chose a snake as a companion

About a year ago I was thinking about taking on a pet for companionship.  I have had dogs and cats before and they both have positives and negatives.  But something that has changed since the last time I have owned a pet is my absence from the house.  It seems like I am away much more than I use to be.  Always going on trips and long working days.  So a dog and cat would be a horrible match for that lifestyle. A friend of mine has a Ball Python…

New Domain Name!!!

If you have not noticed, my domain name has changed!!! What an awesome name!  GoDaddy made this change VERY easy!  I cannot sing the praises of GoDaddy enough.  They have the best customer service I have ever experienced!  The change was 100% automated and fast.  Old links will still work and people going to the old address will be transferred over.  Their prices are reasonable and they will help you do ANYTHING you need.  Get their managed WordPress option and they SUPPORT WordPress!!!  Its amazing!!  I am a happy Photog…

Positive support

When I was thinking about this adventure, I called my daughter, Evie, in Ohio and talked to her about it.  I was half expecting her to talk me out of the idea.  After I gave her the idea and plan, SHE WAS ECSTATIC!  Something I was NOT expecting. Damn…. NOW I HAVE TO DO THIS!! Evie is more like me than I was expecting.  She wanted to HELP!  She said that I am NOT to finish before she comes to Texas in May 28th!  Alright, babycakes… I am not gonna…
