We have been doing a lot of work on the old girl  :)

  1. roof and window leaks -done.
  2. water heater - done. 
  3. twin beds replaced with extra long Queen.
  4. new tires all around
  5. reworked the plumbing
  6. shampooed carpet and upholstery
  7. New paint

My Husband and I have done all of the repairs ourselves. We had an auto shop for many years and a construction background, before we retired.

We are taking her to a 4H archery event this weekend. We have been leaders in Shooting Education for many years, we both are archery instructors. All of our six kids and 4 of our 10 grandchildren are archers.

Our trip is only an 80 mile jaunt but a good test.  Our first trip with her was at Thanksgiving.  We took her to the lake and learned a lot about her.  The heater didn't work so we took along our Big Mister Buddy heater and we were so glad we did we had rain, snow, wind and sleet, No fishing. We were there 5 days and only on Thanksgiving Day was it cold (in the 30's) but pleasant we had 9 for dinner in the RV. My husband and I played cards, watched videos and took a few walks and read a lot. Will post pictures next week
