Hi Chaplain Kent,

No problemo!..thnx for the edit..that's right..it was Descartem nit Sartre..guess my memory hit a snag along the way of life!

I also spend time talking w/my husband about anything and everything under the sun..the best time to talk for us is early in the morning as we're starting our day.

And I let the little kids watch a video sometimes if there are hookups.
Hi BamCamper,

Another Californian, where abouts are you?

re: reorganizing the cupboards - that's one project that always is on my mind. We have little slide-out drawers under the twin dinette beds in the front..the drawers are made of plastic and have become brittle and cracked over the years. One can only use gray duct tape for so long!..so we're in the process of replacing them w/wood drawers that my husband has built..that will keep us busy for a while. We put up a couple of shelves inside one of the tall skinny closets.

We bought a portable tv/vcr combo last year. It works really great when the tv doesn't work in certain places, the vcr comes in very handy!

I thought our 22.8 ft. Safari was tiny, but Bambis are even smaller and cuter!..does yours have a shower?..my cousin has one, but I don't remember seeing one(this was about 20 years ago that I went inside his)
Well, in my way of thinking our Bambi has just about everything! Yes, we do have a shower. The only thing we don't have is a oven... but, I enjoy dutch oven cooking so I really don't need one inside the trailer... I do have a small microwave, but don't have it in the trailer as we like to camp in places that often does not have power. Besides I usually only use the microwave to heat up stuff...

You need to understand, however, that we "moved up" from a teardrop to the Bambi. (Formerly had several SOBs.... 5th wheel, Motorhome, etc. but abandoned them for the teardrop! ) As we age, we often tend to want less to take care of. Downsizing is often a good thing.

I assume this means we are done walking, kayaking, biking, chasing a four year old around, chasing a dog around, etc.Does putting my feet up and looking out the window count!

Seriously, if son and hubby are napping under these weather conditions, I do puzzles, read, and/or plug myself into the ipod. I like to sit out under the awning even if its not nice to do stuff outside just to dig the campground surroundings! Usually we have a beautiful view at the state and national parks! Their naptime is usually my free time you know.
I prefer to bake and cook outside and just reheat stuff inside the trailer.
I love reading all the responses.

Hi jp,Got home from a 2 niter at the Coast..new fix-ums for use to do:
  1. replace the tire that got a bubbleput back the fire extinguisher on the wall guess the screws got loose with the road vibrations
  2. the shower pipe came off the wall too..have to find the screws that fell down into the tub and put that back up.
  3. get a new room divider of some sort between the bathroom and the kitchen..we had bought one of those vinyl covered wood screens that has worn out..maybe just a nice curtain will do the trick..

Sounds of Silence

I like to just sit inside and listen to the rain on the roof. If it's not raining then I go get the sprinkler out of the garage and make my own "rain" and go back in to listen some more! Ed

Actually, we've never had any leaks from above, so I guess I'm safe for a while!..last 2 nites, when there was nothing on the tv, I put in my videos of I Love Lucy..loved the Hollywood episode w/William Holden and Harpo Marx,..oops, showing my taste for the silly stuff again!

Maybe...

That might be a new thread topic....Vintage TV shows you watch in your Vintage trailers. We may just have stumbled onto something here! Ed

P.S. I need one more post to get my 4th rivet...(I think)

We love kickin' back in our Bambi. Seem to have our best conversations there. Also enjoy reading--hate to admit it but since we are newbies to AS our reading material also includes the AS manuals! So much to learn! That aside, we seem to be most at peace in our TT! Gearing up for a month-long trek from California to Idaho, through Oregon and Washington. Can't wait!

We've been working jigsaw puzzles in the AS. That is so relaxing.
