Just one of those cool cloudy routine stay at home days with not much going on. Clouds did begin to clear mid afternoon & I was able to charge my batteries enough to walk around the house a couple times.
CHECKING OUT OUR NEW ‘ROLLER FEEDER’
With not a lot to write about I looked back in my blog to see what we were doing a year ago at this time & I see we had just returned from Borrego Springs. A week ago yesterday Kelly & I climbed Ghost Mountain. I generally like make an annual trek up to the old Marshall South homestead.
THE DESERT IS BEGINNING TO SHOW SOME COLOR
Our trip to Borrego Springs last year was a short one for several reasons. It was our first venture out in our recently acquired 2012 Sunseeker Class C. Only took us a couple boondocking days to realize we had made a mistake & it was just simply too small for us. Despite getting a super deal on it In Quartzsite we just couldn’t make the smaller size work for us. We poured over ideas to take the horseshoe dinette out but in the end just had to accept the fact we were not going to get accustomed to the small bathroom or the corner bed. Best driving & handling RV we’ve ever had but if one’s living quarters are not satisfactory nothing else matters. With a big wind storm headed into the Anza-Borrego area we decided there was no point in just ‘toughing it out’ for the sheer sake of just ‘toughing it out’. We’ve toughed out enough big winds east of Borrego over the years to know we didn’t need to do that again so we made the decision to make a quick dash for home one year ago today.
We were once again lucky enough with the Sunseeker to get a great trade in deal about 6 weeks later back in Canada when we traded it in on our larger 26’ Winnebago Class C. Our Winnie is a big improvement over the smaller Sunseeker but we still have not adjusted to the smaller space like we thought we would. No doubt about it, we really miss the roominess of a Class A. Will we sell the Winnie or trade it in for another A?? Who knows, our plans are always fluid & we’re the type of people who believe if something isn’t working out the way you like it…….change it!!

Are you thinking of replacing that carpet in your RV? Maybe it’s just time for a change & you want to put some different tile or laminate flooring in. PETER is helping JIMBO with that very job right now & Peter has some experienced helpful tips for you do-it-yourselfer folks. My idea of installing a new floor is to throw a few Walmart scatter mats down:))

A: The pick-up truck with the gun rack and the bumper sticker saying, "Guns don't kill people. I do."
