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…

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…

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…

Another Day in Paradise!

Today I gave my apartment notice that I do not intend to renew the lease! I have no intention of getting another apartment again. I want to tell you about my plan… My dream since I was 8 years old is going to be coming true!!  I have been thinking about changing my life for awhile now.  I have been wanting to buy or BUILD an RV and travel the country.  Live full time WITH my snake, motorcycle, and photography equipment.  The challenge arises that I need to make money…
