too much rain!

So we're going to take the motorhome out on its first real trip next week.  I fired it up thinking I'd go get the propane tank filled.  Since its such a beast when cold, I sat in the driveway for a good five minutes while it warmed up and then...it quit running!  Apparently out of gas and the guage is apparently innacurate.  I put 2 gallons in and it fired right up. Great!  Now it doesn't want to go out the driveway.  Is it the tranny?  I got it backed up just enough to block the driveway…

Happy New Year

Vision and dream or dream and vision.

Doesn't matter which comes first what matters is how you handle the vision or the dream.

The bible has many examples of visions and dreams.

Quick glimpses, they die and then sprout.

Often while traveling this comes into play. I see my destination, a vision in the distance. Seems so close in a straight line but the road leads to a long bend or through a valley and suddenly the vision is lost but if I stay the course it appears again…

AGM Battery Upgrade

  I have four solar panels, do a lot of dry camping, and  wanted to replace my four old flooded lead acid 6 volt Trojan T-105's (450 Amp Hours) with AGM technology so I don't have to be constantly checking and adding water etc. etc. I went with two Renogy AGM12-200 (200 Amp Hours at 10 hr rate, 208 Amp Hours at 20 hr rate = 416 total) which I picked up at Walmart (they even loaded them for me, 129 lbs each) free shipping for $247 each. On the Renogy website they are $399 each !!!!!!!!!!!  It…

Murphy must be MY Cousin.

Life is good,, most times,, well at least 28.6 % of the time.

I was reaching for something under the kitchen counter and noticed the 

water pan under the water heater had water in it, Welllll  That is NOT good.

I looked around for Murphy's footprints knowing that sum gun had to have been there. Anywho,, I had a water line leaking,,, not the simple little drip drip. But the classic Murphy induced BIG drip drip, Just a note,, Murphy goes big.. So. I surveyed the situation…
