Parked for the summer...

After much talking, we decided that this summer, we need to go all-in and finish construction of the cabin. I've been knobbing around for months and not making much in the way of progress. So I wound up doing something I never thought I would....

I took my Roo down to our lake lot and left it there. We decided that with the camper there, we can go down and work on the cabin, and if we decide to work late and stay the night, we are good to go. We are gonna forgo our usual 7-12 camping trips this year and we only have 2 scheduled, so it makes sense to leave it down there.

I spotted it down there on Thursday, and I went down Friday and worked on burning leaves and generally cleaning up the lot, and I stayed the night. it IS nice just rolling up, unlocking the doors, dropping the bunk and being done in about 30 seconds. Even nicer just locking up and leaving.

Funny thing... So far 2 different neighbors asked me if I sold it. They aren't used to seeing the camper gone and my truck home.

I've also had a hard time getting completely focused on a construction job at my lake house. Having a RV at your job site should help you focus greatly.

Sometimes you've just got to stop and do one thing long enough to complete a job task. In this busy world, keeping a project on task is just difficult--being pulled in so many directions by distractions.
