I have created an album. I suppose you click on my avatar and then select 'view my public profile'. It appears my Album is on the right side of the page. Forgive me, but I'm still trying to find my way around here. Hope you enjoy the photos and captions.

Welcome Clyde and Linda. This is a gret forum and you are very welcome here. We all can learn from each other.

Many years ago I wanted a tear drop and thought about joining "women on the fly" as they all have the cutest tear drops. Now that I just bought my 5er guess they would not take me. lol

Love your Littlle Guy is sooo cute!! I was just in Fresno 3 wk ago. Next time work brings me there I will let you know. Would love to get together with you and Linda for a cup of coffee!! My westcoast reps are trying to keep me busy (even though I am semi-retired) and are keeping me around Fresno and the area. lol

timeout. Just looked at your pictures and I can tell you that this is real camping. All the big trailers with all the house goodies is not really camping like a washer and dryer and fireplace in the trailer. For many years I have camped with my family in a 9 by 9 Woods umbrella tent ( the one that smell wax ) in the bush where there was no facility at all. This was real camping. For a small exemple for our shower I had a big plastic jug that I was leaving in the sun all day and this plastic jug was installed on a tree with a hose and a shower head for our shower.I envy your camping style. I am sure you would not change it for any other kinds. Where have you bought this nice Goodyear air inflator?

Welcome stay with us. You will be happy if you do! Most RV's share the same components so it make little or no difference wether yours is a forest river or not.
The people on this site are very helpful and non-judgmental.

Link to Goodyear Air Compressor

I hope I did this "Quote" thing correctly! But, here is the link to where we purchased our Goodyear Air Compressor. The air compressor runs on DC and has been very reliable so far. I can put some pictures of the tank and fittings in my album if you wish. One friend on another forum used an old 4 gallon pressure cooker to heat and pressurize the water in his system. It's just fun to be inventive, as you know!

The 'Square D' box on top was obtained from a friend that owns a water well drilling company. It is a used pressure regulator that is in very good condition. It was simple to wire up and took me about 6 tankfuls of water to adjust the parameters properly.

Thank you for appreciating the work that we have put into the little things that give us pleasure. We are more than willing to share any of our simple ideas with others.

I just want to make it clear that Linda and I love the big rigs and all the comfort they provide, but we couldn't justify or afford the price of admission or the cost of fuel. We are thrilled that others can, but we are very happy with our choice with our 'Little Guy' 6 Wide. We didn't join this wonderful forum to advertise for them, but if anyone would like to see more of these great little trailers, just go to and tell them Clyde and Linda asked you to stop by!

Now to get back to finding out more about your 'big toys' and thanks for giving us such a nice welcome.
