HOT AND HUMID
Sure saving a bundle on propane. No heat needed at all. Nope, Not even in the evenings nor early mornings.
Despite the fact that RAIN has been showing in the forecast for every day – we haven’t seen any at all. But someone is getting it ‘cause those skies sure look dark in places.
A FEW RECENT COMMENTS
Barbara asked “Are you enjoying having hook-ups and lots of water?”
Funny thing about that. I haven’t changed my habits very much. No, I don’t ‘conserve’ as far as the water goes but other than that (since I got the solar) things are pretty much the same. I guess I’ve developed ‘boondocking’ habits and they are now part of my life. I’m not an energy hog anyways so that hasn’t changed.

I have been told it is a County Park and they want to encourage people to visit the Town to spend money of course. I have found several ‘county’ or ‘city’ Parks that offer free stays but admittedly this is the first one with FHU’s. It’s been here for years and I was also told that just a few years ago they put the concrete slabs in for the RV’s to park on. The Park only has 8 FHU sites though.
Bob asked “is it Correctional Services Property?”
LOL – No, But with my temper it probably wouldn’t surprise anyone if I ended up in a place like that !
Yesterday morning I had to troubleshoot an electrical problem……Well sort of. This is the first time I’ve had hook-ups since I got my solar. So I haven’t been paying attention to the readings on my little panel that tell me what my batteries are at. The other night though I noticed it was showing 12.2 ?? That is low. The following morning it showed 11.8 – this is serious !! Yet my ‘electrical’ was working in that all the plugs were working and my microwave was on.
Posted my question on the RV Website I visit and talked to friends from Richmond, B.C. to try and figure out what the problem was. Several things to check out were suggested. Turns out the Converter breaker had tripped and once I reset it everything was fine again. Still don’t know what (if anything) I did to cause this.
Then I decided to tackle that broken string in one of the blinds.
TAKE FRAME OFF
FIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE BLIND OFF
FRAME & BLIND OFF – NOW WHAT ??
Hmmmm, This doesn’t look like it’s going to be an easy task. Called a Camping World that’s fairly close by and sure they do re-string them – for a mere labour rate of $120 an hour – with an estimated two hours labour because they are so tedious to do.
PLAN B needs to be put in place IMMEDIATELY !! Oh, I don’t have a PLAN B !! Camping World did say they do sell the “re-stringing kit” for $20.00. So looks like I’ll be going that route. Haven’t got it yet so stay tuned for that job that I’m sure is going to turn into a fiasco and likely may never get done.
In the meantime I put a towel over that window at night………hey, that’s ok ….. maybe I’ll even get a matching colour towel and say JOB DONE !!
MORE HARLEY DEALER VISITS
Today I took off on the bike for the day. Needed to get away from my depressive and anxiety ridden mood (more Condo woes).
Rode to Conroe, TX where I came out relatively unscathed. The obligatory T-Shirt; a sticker and a floor mat. They had a pair of boots there (that I really do need) that were exactly what I was looking for – but at $180.00 plus tax I passed on them.
Didn’t buy a thing at The Woodlands location.
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS
Byron, You know that I’m only visiting these Dealers and taking these pics JUST FOR YOU !! LOL
OH I ALMOST FORGOT….
I dropped the bike today…
I said I dropped the bike today….
Speak up – we can’t hear you !!
I said I dropped the bike today….!!!
Don’t know how/what happened but I was coming to a stop at an intersection to make a turn. Next thing I know I’ve lost my balance and she started to go down. I tried to stop it but didn’t have the strength. I held on for as long as possible to ease the fall so no damage was done.
Poor Bennie got rolled around a little. Guy came up behind me and helped me pick the bike back up. Then it wouldn’t start. That took a few minutes. I was only a few miles from home.
The only thing I can mark it up to was that I was way beyond my fatigue level and was anxious to get home, get the helmet off and relax.
Also noticed that my wrist is slightly bruised. I guess it got twisted a little trying to hold the bike while it was going down.
