I'm finally getting some pics up of the newly finished shop and trailer pad. We made a small miscalculation on how wide we needed the space to be to accommodate getting the slide out. Although I was very panicky when Larry backed into the spot as I worried he would... Continue reading

Wedsnesday morning we went and got the trailer and brought it home. It was kinda sad leaving the Sparks Marina RV Park. Our stay there was very pleasant. The only drawback was making sure our dog didn't pee on the astroturf that is the "grass" at each site! LOL! We... Continue reading

Today officially starts the next chapter in our lives. The guys got back last night with our belongings about 6:30 and we dropped the trucks off at the new house. They had a horrible drive though with icy snow covered roads a good part of the way. Larry even had... Continue reading

We woke up to our furnace out yet again yesterday morning. Appeared to be the limit switch again which was a good thing in light of all that could be wrong. So we got a hold of the mobile RV guy we called before and turns out his dad told... Continue reading

We found out last night that even though our closing is tomorrow, the 28th, we won't be signing papers until Thursday or Friday! WTH? Closing day to me means the day you get the keys! So now we are going to have to make a lot of phone calls to... Continue reading

It got down to 10 degrees last night and at this writing we are sitting at 11 degrees. Even though we have everything exposed insulated and wrapped in heat tape we still left some water dribbling from both faucets and those cabinet doors open. Think some folks woke up to... Continue reading

Just before Thanksgiving we went under contract on a new construction, almost finished house. We had them re-do the shower/bathtub in the master bath and then we were able to pick out all the finishes. You can find more about all that, plus some pics, here. What I really want... Continue reading

We have been here almost 2 weeks now and feeling fairly comfortable. Living in the travel trailer is a lot different than camping in it for 3-5 days! But we are enjoying our stay at the Sparks Marina. Larry loves the fact he can walk to Sheel's! Lots of fabulous... Continue reading

Things have been so hectic the last few weeks, well since October 21st to be exact. That was the day we had a signed offer on our house and all the drama began. These folks from Arizona came to look at our house and our neighbor's place. Heard from our... Continue reading

Amidst all the traveling we had a trip scheduled to Crow Butte (CB) campground. I big part of me wanted to postpone it to the Fall but we ended up just pushing our arrival day back by one day and went anyway. We arrived back from my friend's Celebration of... Continue reading

Larry and I both agreed to no typical Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts this year but instead we wanted to get a few things for the trailer. I had initially thought I didn't want a paper towel holder but after our last trip out it went on the list... Continue reading

We have a house showing today at 4pm. It's a couple from Chehalis, WA., but we don't know much more than that. Sometimes I get kinda panicky at the thought of what happen's once the house does sell. The thought of being homeless is scary, although I know it would... Continue reading
