Fast Progress!!!

Over the last week I have made FAST PROGRESS!  Now the flooring is nearly finished, my desk is made, Texas flag is flying, fishing poles are mounted, phone charger is installed, and I have a light (finally!) over my dinette!  It is really great to have a desk again! The next step is to finish the vinyl flooring, add carpet pieces, install new awning, finish the trim in the living room slide out, and deep clean the kitchen so I can make my first meal!  Im thrilled about that!  Stand…

ROT!

This the first major project. This is the beginning of the end. I needed to fix the rotting wood in the frame before I can do anything else! Before I can finish out the walls, before I can lay the floor, before I can add the desk, before I can weld a platform on to the back for my motorcycle… This had to be done first! After the old floor was removed I could see that the wall had fell about 3/4 of an inch!  The rotted wood sagged under…

2017 ECLIPSE IN A PHOTOGRAPHERS DREAMLAND, WYOMING!

I will start with the most important line from the entire article! If you have never been to Wyoming, no words can describe how beautiful, breathtaking, dangerous, wonderful, and mesmerizing Wyoming is! Just go there! Ok. Now that’s out of the way. Let me elaborate of how my coverage of the 2017 Solar Eclipse from Casper, Wyoming went. Plan! I have been planning and thinking about this event for over 5 years. I narrowed it down to two possible locations; the Smoky mountains or The Grand Tetons. I visited the…

New Light!

Sometimes it is the little things… Like replacing a fluorescent fixture with LED lights. What a difference it makes! Notice how more of the counter is lit! LED Lights – $8.99 LED clips – $7.68 Not bad for $16.67…

Holy Cinder Block Batman!

So I woke up to this yesterday! I was so concerned about how to fix this. I don’t have a tow vehicle yet and therefore no way to hold the trailer up. But I have to in order to replace the broken block. But then the next question is what am I going to replace the block with?? I talked to a few RV owners that I know and they suggested that I buy a 2X8 weather treated wood plank and cut it every 12 inches. So I got a…

Progress…

Progress is slow with Evie here for the summer, but she does help me a lot.  We really made some progress after the second AC got fixed and the temps in the trailer got better. The slide is insulated and has interior walls up. I cleaned off the couch and the table so we can start enjoying the trailer! This is really starting to come together! I am getting excited! My Paradise is starting to form.

AC Fixed!!!!

My Paradise has two Air Conditioners. One in the front bedroom and one in the back living room. When I bought the trailer the living room AC never worked. With just the bedroom AC going the temp inside the trailer would get about 85 degrees in the hot part of the day. After some troubleshooting I figured out it was a bad capacitor. I just decided to replace both. $14 later it started working again!  Yes!  Cold air!!!!  Thank God it was a cheap fix!!!

Power!!

UNLIMITED POWER!!! Thats right!  I got my pole up and I am waiting on the power company to come out and hook up!!  I am thrilled!  I bought one generator that worked for about 4 days and just stopped.  I have not been able to make it work since.  🙁 But now that I will have constant power soon, I dont have to worry about such things!  Then my remodel can happen faster!  My problem is that it is around 140 in my trailer!!  I can only work for about…
