The madness started in March 2013. I was asked by Christine, my wife to search the internet for a grade 5 Alto Saxophone book for one of our twin boys. Quite a simple task for a woman but a guy with the entire internet at his fingertips, I don't think so!!!
Been looking for a set because mine are original, from 1976. They have yet to tear, but would like to find a pair and replace them before too long. The folks at NAPA looked at me like I was asking them about getting my hands on weapons-grade uranium...CARQUEST, O'Reilly's? Surely you jest?
Also looking for a set of 19.5 Alcoa's in the 5-lug, 8" spread (Budd Wheel)- might see a unicorn living in my younger daughter's bedroom before that happens, LOL, just thought I'd throw it…Continue
I am so glad I live in California this winter. We may have experienced extremely unusual cold temps, but at least they haven't dipped into the minus numbers. I got pretty cold in this trailer at night, but it was manageable.
I also fund a small blessing in not having been able to figure out how to hook this trailer up to a water hose. One night I forgot to cover my garden faucet and the manifold and garden hose froze. The manifold split. I am sure I would have experienced the same…Continue
We finally too'k the step!! We now own an 85 Allergo. She is all original. We have had our share of water leaks, electrical problems and worst of all. trying to get rid of things we don't need from the house. I think this is the hardest part due to the things we have had for so many years and now we have no room for it.
We spent our first night last night. It truly different than living in the house. We are very happy though. We are now part of the RV community.
I do wish if…Continue

Well, It's been a while since posting. We've been doing some work on the old '79 Ford 24' Roll-a-Long class C and have gotten some great use out of her. We had a mobile outfit called the RV ROOF MAN seal up the Aluminum roof as we found a leak a while back. Well I wish I had the roof done when I first noticed water ingress. When he got up in there he found some dry rot that he removed and rebuilt some framing along the edge. He pulled back the aluminum, fixed what was needed and replaced…Continue
I never posted about the end of our vacation in September because I was too fed up with our camper. The last day as we were driving home from New Hampshire about 150 miles from home the front end began to drag to one side and I could smell the unmistakable aroma of brake pads being fried. When I put the brakes on to grab a quick exit ramp nothing happened! They had overheated and glazed over.…Continue
Well, hope all is well with all. Rosie left yesterday as the insurance company took her to auction. Got diddly for her, so sad. What do you do? *SIGH*
Here we are.... it is already January and in only 4 short months we are planning on being on the road full time as first time RVers. Every free time that I have is spent online researching and learning about this lifestyle, the ups and downs and the many challenges we will face.…Continue
We are going to remove the jack knife couch (very uncomfortable) and replace it with a sewing table that had two flip up table tops. It will be used as a TV stand, sewing table and laptop stand. The couch is out (very easy, 10 wood screws) and soon as I am done with the sewing table, I will posts more. April is making insulated curtains for the windshield. New covers for the chairs are coming soon. …
