Miniature catapults, trebuchets, and other siege engines.  You can check out our website to see lots of pictures.  Just Google Siege The Day and we are the first thing that comes up.

Do you have any pictures of what you sell?

We have had an AMAZING run so far this year in North Carolina, with one more weekend to go!  Not only did we manage to pay off all of our emergency credit cards, we also managed to purchase a brand new Honda EU2200i generator for boondocking (we got a pretty sweet deal on it)...and we will be going into our winter vacation with well over twice what we had last year.

I prepped the Honda generator today (they don't come with any oil in the crankcase for shipping), and topped it off with Mobile One oil.  Runs incredibly well and is super quiet!  It should be more that adequate to run our converter to charge the batteries when the solar can't keep up...and won't suck down all of our propane in no time like our onboard generator does.  (Which I also need to repair, but there is no hurry on that just needs a new control board).
I also installed a battery watering system today and it works great!
I have another small run of catapults to build over the next few days for closing I'm going to try to get in touch with Winnebago tomorrow and see if they can point me in the right direction as to where to find the grid heater relay on our Itasca.

We've been members of Good Sam for many years, and recently they signed us up for a Good Sam Rewards Card (a credit card that can only be used at Camping World, Gander, and Good Sam).  We don't intend to use it much, and will pay it off whenever we use it.

The GOOD news is that our Good Sam Club membership was up for when I used the new Rewards Card to pay for another three years, they gave us a SWEET deal on their Platinum Roadside Assistance!  So now if anything happens, our butts will be covered when it comes to towing and tires.  SWEET!!!

We survived all three student days, and this weekend.  Good times were had by all!  This week I'll be troubleshooting the relay to our grid heater on the RV intake and replacing it...and building some catapults.  Should be a more or less relaxing week though.

Student Day 1 is done!  2 more to go!

Opening weekend, last weekend was great!  The busiest opening weekend we ever had at this fair.

This weekend wasn't as good as last weekend...but we did great on Saturday.  It rained all day today though, so Patti stayed home with the pups, and I worked the booth.  We didn't make a lot of money, but we had fun!

This coming week is "hell week."  Three student days in a row.  I spent all this week building catapults and prepping parts for more in between student days and Monday and Friday, I'll get all the catapults done that I need to get done for next weekend.

I decided to start a new chapter, since summer vacation is over, and we are about to open up at the Carolina Renaissance Festival tomorrow.

The booth is all set up, and all we have to do today is get some potted flowers for the front of the booth...and then pick up some marshmallows and snack bags (and a bank) for the weekend.

It is supposed to be a LOT cooler tomorrow and Sunday, thank God!
