Summer project

I decided to keep up my trailer rehab skill this summer by building a Mobil Deer blind.  It is 6' x 8'  x7' tall and can be moved by my ATV..

Its fully insulated  ,has a sky light,  and has a desk/bed to be used when hunting.

 All the windows and door were recycled from a older mobile home that was scrapped. 90% of the wood was also from the trees off our land up here. The roof is a Green steel.

The trailer frame was given to me so I put it to good use  and used it for…

Decision and the Cherry Springs trip

Hey Gang,

I made a decision. What decision? I will tell you.

I haven't been blogging much lately because of concentrating on my book. But I have kept busy writing stories, I just never posted them. So I got to thinking... maybe I shouldn't blog about my travels and experiences any more and just put them in book two. BOOK TWO??? Where is book one??

When I handed the publisher my work he said “WHOA you have enough for two books. What I would recommend is a series of short…

Classic Rv's and Memories.

Ive repaired and refurbished Old,new and inbetween Rv's and after careful thought, I have determined that older RV's were built at least 70% better then whats on the market now.

Installing a heated floor in bus conversion.

I HATE being cold.  I hate the thought of being cold.  I hate getting out of bed on a cold winter morning to step on a cold floor.  Even carpet can't really take the cold out of a cold floor.  The most it can do is attempt to mask the cold and it doesn't do a good job of that.

So I decided to install in floor heating in the bus in an attempt to address that concern.  Read about it here:  …

Southeast Camping

Hello all. I go by Shorty and I live in Northern Alabama. I own a 1999 Coach House 192KS (Class B). I am new to this forum and have all ready gleaned a plethora of information. The reason for this post is to see if any members are up for an informal get together in the near future? I'm looking at perhaps as early as December? Like many of you, I am retired and as I say "everyday is a Saturday." So I am flexible with dates. I usually camp in Corps of Engineer (COE) Camp Grounds given their…
