Sharon you and Paula are going to have so much fun! Rivette Blast is a perfect name too, a winter blast so watch out for snow and ice and keep warm. I will be anxious to see pictures and hear all about your rally and trip.

My non-smoking is going famously but I feel like I can't wake up...hope that feeling ends before too much longer, ARGH!!! instead of

Brad is hitched up and leaving for New Mexico tomorrow morning. It will be his first work camping experience at a no-kill animal shelter Desert Haven.

We've applied for summer positions as well so cross your fingers for us. Waiting home in Michigan for a job just doesn't seem viable any more.

hang in there Carol. It will get better. Feel like lighting up play with the dog(s) or Cat.
Having the trailers gives you great flexability in employment.
Now I have to find a way to get mine in the back yard!

Heck we could have called it the "Polar Blast" But for us northerners 30 and 40 degress above ZERO!!! is HEAVEN!!! and I am not picky as to where my heaven may be these days..

I have been in the middle of Florida and it has been the same temps in February - so all I really care is that I don't have 4 feet of snow - you don't have to shovel RAIN

Hey that is GREAT Carol. The edge wears off around the 3rd or 4th week - so keep sticking it out - just put on a few pounds and eat chocolate sticks - get the long thin ones and smok'em girl (or suck them very slowly) - will give you that hand to mouth fetish you are craving or missing or longing for.....subconsciously of course...

That is great news for Brad - hope he does well and it mets his expectations. Are you traveling out there too. Or hanging out in the woman cave for a few more months?

Hey Michelle - did you ever see the picture of the people in Europe they rented a crane and had their airstream lifted over the house and plopped into the back yard. Might be an idea - I am sure you could pull some strings to get a crane at a reasonable price...

Oh come on Airdale - I think you have become a pretty extensive Traveler by now - push it girl - you can leave MI more than once a year Now if I said I would meet you where it was really warm would you come? Ha I will send you a heat lamp by mail.

Brock I LOVE that little washer - what a great idea - just one more thing to pack - but beats doing them in the kitchen sink - and if you were in a bind and no laundry mats and a lovely sunny day and needing some upper body exercise then heck what a great little boob buster that would be. Just might order one when I get to the SC.

Well my count down is on - and I hope to be all ready by the this weekend - so after Monday if my way is clear I am pulling out. Got the cap all sorted out with her Yak Rack and brake light and interior light all hooked up.

And a funny story...you may ask how does a leaf blower and an Airstream in the dead of winter pair up???

Well let me tell you....yesterday I spent 2 hours up top of the ModPod in a beautiful sunny afternoon to which I actually got a sun burn - removing 2 feet of snow and ice and the leaf blower was the perfect tool for the job. Easy to hang onto and balance on the roof and no chance of scratching or denting the aluminum clearing the yucky white stuff!!! And for any of you who doubt that you can stand on the roof without falling through - been there done that on both vintage and newer - it ain't going to happen. Now what is precarious is snow and aluminum they do not go together very well. Very very Slipery - and I could have started my journey very quickly to the ground - but a girl has to do what a girl has to do - to get outta here!!!!

Sharon, I do leave the state more than once a year, infact, Im going to New Mexico on Feb 23, and thats why I cant come, I dont have enough vacation for NM and the International rally in Madison, WI this year. Im also going to the KY rally, and will be in Dayton, OH for 4 days in May. So trust me, I get out of the state more than you know!

Well when I bought the house I thought I was going to be able to bring the trailer in and out the back of the property. The Church behind was officially asked for permission. They denied. Seems they are planning on selling some time in the future.
There is a 10 foot gate on one side and I can get the trailer in there. One small problem the Gas meter is in the way. At settlement they set aside money to have the meter moved to the back or front of the house. Where ever the gas line comes to the house. I had a front hitch installed on my truck so I can see the trailer while "backing" it into the yard.
I am going to put in a concrete pad electric and sewer for full self service when I get home.

Wow Michelle that sounds awesome - there really is nothing like going out to the AS and hanging out and dreaming of taking her out in the future...You can pretty much go anywhere you want when you step through the door...it truly is and adult "wendy backyard playhouse".

Well tell ya what - run a church function that involves your airstream and a charity of sorts and then they might just warm up to the idea....if you planed it so that the opening was open for the open house so to speak and then it would just be a matter of setting up for the day tee hee....

When you have it all set you will have to post photos for sure - I can't wait to see what you end up with.

The place I am going - the host couple at an old century house is setting up the space with tables and chairs and things to make me feel right at home. It is so cool. I decided not to do the RV Park scene and take up a friends offer to stay at another friends place where they host retreats in the country.

I am going to stay at a county park for a bit by the ocean at the beginning and then move up and settle in for the rest of the winter just north of Charleston. I know the weather will be chilly in comparison to most peoples likings - but I really love the early spring and fall type weather. You can do so many things and not get all hot and bothered if the weather is too warm.

My girls will love the weather too - and it will beat what I am seeing outside my window today!!! - snow blizzards all day apparently - on the day I slated to pack up the trailer - so I will have to get the towels out for the floor. Cause a little snow is not going to put my schedule off...

Good luck with your AS Dreaming Back Yard Pad...

I have a hard time keeping up with posts and messages too. I actually got out and did a little work on the Princess today. I also have been buying stuff to furnish her and have been trying to find a good refrigerator. I think Best Buy has what I want but they don't stock it anywhere so I have to pay shipping. Oh well...Where north of Charleston are you going to stay? I love the Isle of Palm down there. This seems to be an endless winter and I feel bad even complaining about it compared to the northern states (and Canada).

Well let me tell ya - I am having a hard time keeping up with all that has to get done before I can leave....

Today I wanted to do so much but of course we have had a blizzard ALL day and it is still going.

but I managed to at least get my sleeping/entertainment - okay let me rephrase that - since there is no couch the bedroom doubles as a "Pad" like in the 70's

Since I am bringing the dogs - I had to think of something that would not drive me totally nuts with either white or black dog hair - although I am sure I will have my Shark going everyday!!!

So after some great strength - I tackled the mattress from hell. Removed the cheapy pad that I got earlier and put on the new memory foam and mattress pad and new sheets and duvet.

Next I have to tackle the dinette. The cushions sit too low and I always hit my funny bone on the top of the dinette so I am looking at something different - not sure what though and only a few days - or I may have to do something on the road...

Ha new ones are just as much fun but with out all the elbow grease - but gosh I want a different mattress - Paula you did not hear this - I know I have not got around to doing it yet. I like it but I hate so I can not decide....

I was really lucky and scored a fridge way out in California - it was a late 90's 3 way fridge - only paid 100 for it and 80 shipping - so it worked out great.

What size fridge are you looking for?

I am staying around James Island for a bit and then heading to quaint private place in Monks Corner - it is not an RV park I am staying with friends of a friend. Their place is fabulous and will be perfect for some R&R, photography and kayaking - and a great place to knuckle down and work on our small business and perhaps do some writing.

Annie and Marvin are dangling some bait for me to head further south west over to Texas - but I have promised that I would not be more than a days or two drive from home - this trip.

Well I just got a new hybrid kayak and if you bring yours I can take you to the "hot hole" by the nearby steam plant on Belews Lake. I'm new at kayaking too so I'm sure I will be slow but heck you have to learn one way or the other. I took a couple of classes so at least if I flip I know how to get out:>
