Learning the Steps, Thoughts & Musings

Flexibility

I made it through the brutal cold! Sure, single digits aren't normally considered brutal to most people, but when you're huddled in a 28' x 8' space, it certainly is. Even so, with the extra blankets on the windows & door and cab area, with the propane heater running a couple times throughout the night,… Continue reading Flexibility

Thoughts & Musings

Cold and colder…

As you know, there are some record low temperatures already happening all over the country and even lower ones projected for the beginning of 2018. I'll admit that, even with all of my preparations, I'm still a little nervous about it. After all, this is a 30 year old motorhome that wasn't meant for winter… Continue reading Cold and colder…

Brakes and Breaks

Nothing happened except for the fear and doubts that tend to plague us when we do something… Continue reading The traveling begins…

Bumps & Bruises

Yep, real bruises. It seems that I've been covered with them since starting this project, but I knew it was all part of the deal. Now, as I look at some of them, wondering how long they will take to go away (sometimes several weeks), I can't help but smile at the fact that I… Continue reading Bumps & Bruises

Where did the time go?

As I struggle to keep my eyes open tonight I remind myself that I've made a lot of progress. I have all the surfaces painted, the roof is sealed and the a/c shroud is back in place, the generator is gone, and someone is coming to get the propane tank this weekend. Packing up my… Continue reading Where did the time go?
