I was looking at Glenn's pictures of his basement. I'm hoping this weekend to pick up those hooks he has on the walls to hang our fishing rods on.

(snork) Right now they ride in the shower, standing up in a tall narrow basket.

(that's another thing I checked out first thing when we picked 'er up....any rapscallion who dared to take our fishin' rods would have rued the day when Weezer got 'hold of 'em!...and yeah, I keep a skillet in Buffy too!)

I know, it's a weird quirk, but I need a light breeze/air blowing on my face to sleep, even if it's 20* outside. Goes well, I guess, with my *must* to have one foot out from under the covers or I can't breathe!
I'm the same way - ceiling fan at home is ALWAYS on in the bedroom - small 12V Trucker fan in the Camper BR

Hmmm that may be a idea...currently the Fly Rods are stored in their tubes in the sofa linen drawer and the spinning rods are stored- along witht he taklebox-under the bed (have you considered this? They are outta sight and thus pretty rapscallion-proof )

Oh yeah, ceiling fan *always* on here in the BR and LR, but the BR fan has to stay on low....Sneak can't take high speed, he'll get nose bleeds.

I've got a 12V fan in the storage room, the type that clips on a car's visor. Not sure I have a 12V receptacle in the RV BR though, so I'ma stick with my Greek column accessory. May even get Sneak to bolt it to the floor right by that useless shirt closet.

Ooops, the brain ain't functionin' all that well this AM. they're *not* in the shower any more.....the overhead cabinets (over the recliners) across the back are not petitioned off between the doors. I don't store anything there so I slid them in there. Perfect length/width. But I still want to get those hooks.

I've got rubber storage bins under the bed. Camp site sign, awning lights, Fred's supplies, etc. And the Igloo ice maker rides under there.

Sneak a look over by the "real" nightstand - I bet you have a 12v recepticle next to the 110V charging station...

Welding is all finished on Weezer's roll out rack. Bottom is cut, now just cutting the sides and wait for Buffy to show up.

Just talked to Sneak, he'll be here in 'bout 20 mins. He's excited to see the pic!

Just noticed something in the pic;

who's that standing in the background? You? if so then I guess Ms. Frankie's your camera crew?

Well gaaawwwwwlee, there IS! Kinda dark in that corner and I never noticed there was a 12V right beside the USB port.

thanks! that certainly simplifies the fan situation! (I'ma go buy a new one though...ain't puttin' an old dusty one in Buffy...nosirree!)

Found another one just like it for $13.99 and I'm a prime member.

Hey says:

What's your recommendation? re 3 vs 4, and would the open end be toward the small door or large door?

(he's almost home)

Wheels on, bottom in. Now have to take the cover off TOWTA's junker and back it out of the garage to get the table saw out.

No recommendation from here. Your choice on which end. Either end or both. Ends will be easily removed (I hope) Sides will be screwed to the angle legs.

Anderson levelers waiting on a hole to be drilled and a rope handle made.

OK, executive decision here:

Go with four and if four doesn't work, we can always remove one, right?

Junior Executive agrees.

Both ends will be easily removable, so 4 sides you shall get. Two sides will be screwed to the legs.

I told him and he just grinned.

The project is complete, front and back are removable and sides secured. All that is left to do is install track in Buffy and Sneak to sand and round the top edges of the sides/front/back and paint. I don't do sand/paint.
