Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Long time no post, Not much news to report in my life.  Busy with work and taking care of my mother's health issues.   Taking the rig up to Ellijay tomorrow to check out my fifth wheel.

I continue to winterize it for the cold weather.  Don't plan to spend much time up there this winter as I really don't like the cold.  Bring on Global warming !!!    Kidding...   Best to all

Little place in the mountains.

Much to my surprise I picked up a little place up in the North GA mountains near Ellijay.  It's a very small piece of land that I own with a 2002 30 ft  fifth wheel on it.   It's very comfortable and I hope to get a lot of use out of it.  Will be the perfect home base when  I'm able to travel.

Very affordable and a nice view.  Bella and Gracie seem to like it ?

Rain Rain and more Rain

Had a couple of long wonderful downpours in camp this weekend.  Nice to sit dry and comfortable in my rig and watch mother natures beauty.   Glad I'm not a tenter.

Brake Job

My rear brakes were leaking fluid so I had them both re-done with all new parts and new Drums.  Super heavy duty stuff and not cheap.   Hopefully no brake problems ever again  !!

Solar power Instructions with video

Ran across what I think is a good system to add Solar power to your rig.   The solar kit is made by Go-POWER.  I  have purchased one of their inverters and like it very much.

I did not shop around for price.  You may find a better price on a different system.  I'm only showing this as it does a good job of explaining the components of a Solar kit for your RV.   The video is from YouTube and is very well done.

 Here is the YouTube Video:

Too much time on my hands

Ok,  I admit I'm pretty crazy about this camping stuff so I can't help  but improve (sometimes) my stuff.   I added Reflectix insulation to my cooler.  The board insert is foam board wrapped in Reflectix.   Should help keep my ice a little longer?

The beauty of Tennessee

Enjoyed another 4 day trip with the Van dwellers group.  On the way out stopped to take a few pics of the scenery.  Tennessee may be lacking in Football, Corn bread and BBQ but they have some beautiful land.




                                          Clean cold shallow river.  Sweet sound of water gurgling!



                                              
                                           Beautiful flowers everywhere.


Nice

                           OK,OK,,,  Tennessee folk can make pretty good Cornbread and BBQ.

I fought the Pole and the Pole Won

OOPS

Memorial day weekend and I had a backing up tragety.    First the pole that caused it.  Bad Pole...  Bad Pole




Then the dent.  Not a big one but still a dent.





Thankfully no damage to my rig and I think I can straighten out my cargo carrier a little.  Ego was dented a little but what can you do?

Mileage Check

Drove 128 miles in the N. GA mountains.  Took 8.8 gallons of diesel. That's 14.54 mpg.  Not real good but not too bad.

Coosawattee River Resort Ellijay, GA

Spent a very nice 4 days camping with my friend Karen who is the camp host at FishTrap campgrounds.

Good weather with a bit of rain and as always lots of good food.   Was able to cruise around Ellijay and enjoy the sites.   Campground was basically empty with just a few day campers.

Here is my camp site


Bella seemed to enjoy herself being both relaxed and ever diligent.



Gracie always enjoys herself..   Love this photo



The beautiful river only a few steps from my camp

Rough Holiday weekend

Almost starved to death huddled against the blowing cold and snow.  Thankfully  I was able to use my survival skills to gather a few meager nutrients from the deep forest.
