Back at our favorite “campground”

#timeforacoldone … I put a new transmission in my trusty John Deere yesterday and got a LOT of the yard done since then. I just finished up the yard “near” the house. It looks so nice when it’s all greened up like this. There’s still some work to do in the Orchard and the “lower 40” – … Continue reading »

Battery Box Repair

Photos of the work to repair our damaged battery box. This is a semi-temporary fix that offers much better support and protection than the straps and board.

Accidental Fulltimers?

We were having a conversation last night with some friends of ours and the subject of RV’ing came up along with a question of how long we were going to be “boondocked” at our family home in RI.
