Got mine back to level after the front end started sinking in the water logged ground.

Pulled out some stuff I do not need now because I got other stuff to replace it with.....

Re-did the battery cables so they are in the battery box like they should be.

Camping

As we have been in the Moving Mode the past several weeks, little thought given to the campers in the way of preparing for our extended trip this summer. The Month of April is all mine and I have list that will keep me busy just about most of the month. That too is in conjunction with our TAD-POLE Rally we are hosting here on April 4,5,6,7....Once that adventure is over, then I can get to work. Today is another pack and move day.

Our home was put on the market on the Feb. 28th, sold on March 4th., now we have until the 27th of March to be out. Been here for like 18 years.

Can't wait to get this behind us and get on the road:

I didn't do anything to the sabre but I am fabbing up my pressure tank to be installed as soon as she's done hibernating.

A few days ago I added bleach to the fresh water tank, filled it 3/4 full and pulled the 5r around a bit. Pulled the filter cartridge and ran some bleach water from the tank through the plumbing. Today I drained and flushed the system, mixed baking soda with water, added it to the fresh water tank & ran through the lines. Flushed out the system several more times, got good clean water now. Installed new filter, good to go.

Thought about it. Being 645 miles away on business about all I could do. At least I'm in Miami, the weather is beautiful and the coffee flows freely! If you've never had Cuban Coffee definitely give it a try some day.

Went out and turned the oil radiator back off (turned it on last night just as a precaution, temp was 36 last night).

DH has gotta install two sets of OC's awning support poles and install the BR television before April 4th....we're OFF and RUNNIN'! ...several days booked at Lake Claiborne park beginning on that date.

SPRING has SPRUNG! No more freezing temps predicted for us!

DH's golfin' klatch may soon be wonderin' if an APB is warranted. (he plays every Saturday and Sunday mornin' with 'em)

We're gonna be on the road on the weekends for a while!

And yeah, there's a golf course close enough to Claiborne that he can sneak off a mornin' or two to play, while I sleep in. We got back in to RVing with that in mind....bucket list things....NASCAR races we want to go to, and golf courses he wants to play. Myrtle Beach is on that list.

Thought you were going to make him polish the poles before he installed them.

Picked up 16' of red oak 1"x2" to make molding to cover where we cut the carpet out while we were in FL. Also picked up items to add another outlet under window to plug in computer & printer.

Hey...what's all that white stuff?

😝

Well I will be pulling Woodstock out of storage this weekend to:

Install hard start cap in A/C

Double check the BBQ mount off the rear bumper I made

Install weapon safe (for when in California!)

Adjust WDH just a tad

Wash and wax before it gets hot outside.

Pack for next weekend trip

Yep- I'm tired just typing that all out!

went to storage area to start shoveling snow in hopes that the lower ice level would melt and allow me to pull it to the house. Banks of snow near the road were 4-5 feet high and went back from the road 15 feet to a level of three feet under the nose cone.
A friend of mine comes by with his JVC with a big bucket on the front, what would have taken me many hours and lots of sore muscles took about fifteen minutes.
Next week tow it to the house to pack for a trip south and hopefully some warmer temps
