Thanks! You can do it! I think most of what I've done is doable by most folks...just research it, put your mind to it, take it slow and have fun!

I would agree to a point. The point being you have vision and can see what will look good! Most of us are bottom feeders that wait for a good idea and copy it! Well, maybe not most, but definitely me!!

I did a Google Maps search of the ranch and found my MH in the satellite photo. It's a space on the hill I had over a year ago. I'm the second RV from the left. That's my MH with the spare tire cover laying on the ground at the rear bumper, my 16 foot flat trailer and my 20 foot enclosed trailer!

I checked the house and guess what was parked out front. It's normally in covered storage. Must have been packing for a trip.

The cooler is a Coleman stainless steal model and the emblem is from the spare tire carrier that has been off the MH for many years.

Out of the Past

I was reorganizing the garage this last week and thought it was time to go through some things from my parents. I came across a couple of photo albums I didn't know existed. Here's a little step into the past...

It's going to be a bad year for fires

With virtually no rain this last winter, we are in the midst of one of the worst fire seasons...again!

This one started Friday, has grown to over 3500 acres and is only 10% contained. I wasn't up there but I understand it was quite a site seeing the flames and red glow over the ridges on Friday night.

My trailer and ATVs are insured, but the MH is not!

Dean, very very cool!

I'm sure those pictures brought back memories. I'm very fond of the couple of pictures I have from my childhood camping experiences.

Thanks for sharing!

Brad

Hmm, may be time to consider getting some insurance on it!

Great Pics!

We have the MH as an addition to our AAA policy, and it is really good value... I want to say $230/year fully insured...
