Pouring a pad

This new addition to the driveway and side yard lets us drive in forward, unhitch and drive in a circle back to the garage. When leaving, we can hitch and then drive on out without backing up. Backing up is hard to do when your driveway is flanked by drainage ditches.

Anything to make life easier for a couple of old broads.

I have a 30 amp circuit installed already just inside the garage about 20 feet from where the RV will sit. And a long enough cord. You can see just the tiniest tip of the garage roof near the top left of the photo.

Wi fi if you like. Satellite TV, not cable.

We will leave the light on for you.

How about the bathroom, do we come inside of the house or do you have a fire hydrant near by?
