I was wondering where you've been, I can see now you haven't had a spare set of hands for the keyboard with all that you've been up to!

Well, now that school is out, I can borrow one of the schools digital camera. I have been promising some pics of the car mods I have made and you're right, the only mod I made with the Bambi was bringing it home-- if washing and waxing doesn't count!

I am thinking of swapping a few of the lights in my prev post to save on some power since we will have lights on a bit.

I killed the Black Widow spiders crawling out of the wheel wells too. One was a gorgeous big fat Black body with red design on it's back.
Lucky you. You may have a rare black widow, one with marking on the back. They seem to be less common. The ones we have, have a big red dot on the belly. The female, that is. The only one to worry about. The males have marking on top, but are harmless.

"Adult female northern widow spiders are shiny black or brown-black with 2 reddish triangles on the underside, resembling a split hourglass.
Markings of the same color but in varying patterns are sometimes present on the back.
Adult males are harmless, and usually have yellow and red bands and spots over the back."

Don't you love these charming creatures ?

One of the first things we done for our trailer, was keep away nature from it as much as possible. Nature has the lousy habit of trying to get in: here is something that I rather not see too often - in - or out. (it's about the size of a mouse)
We built a concrete pad surrended by rocks. Rocks seem to be the only place we can grow grass on .... ....and things crawl in the grass.......... Nature wins in the end.

Not to sound like a sissy or anything, but like Inidana Jones, I don't like spiders, but one the size of a 18-wheeler really gets me goin'!

Don't mind the little greenish looking ones though you find around the house, heck they could be considered pets their so domesticated......

I do love spiders .... I would look for a tree to climb...inside the trailer.
Seeing Mike's legs on the picture, I couldn't imagine getting that close. He confirmed that he reached over to take the picture.....Not me....
By the way, they are not rare where we are. In a few weeks, I will stop walking between trees where they are waiting to kiss me.

John's living room with lay-z-boy

By John:
Mine was to remove the front sofa/sleeper and I added a lay-z-boy and a swivel chair. I also moved the folding RS table forward so that the swivel chair would able to fit behind it, facing the TV or rear.
John sent me pictures of the location for the Rocky Mountain Rally and included this picture for all to see ...

Cool Mods

I started from scratch after I bought my Globetrotter. Check out the retro microwave where the oven used to be.

It's now upholstered in a nice palm tree material with tan/light green/brown curtains.

In this photo you can see 3 things we have done over the winter. At the very top is the new Fantastic Fan. Below that is the new stereo system. I am not quite finished with that yet. It needs to be fastened down somehow. If you look to the right you will see a speaker on the wall. I did not know those existed until I removed the curtains on that side! I'll have to see if I can find the wires for them and hook them up to the new stereo. Towards the bottom of the picture you can see the newly re-upholstered couch, costing about $315 materials and labor. One more thing I snuck in. I changed the incandescent light bulbs in the reading lights behind the couch to RED led's. Diane will probably make me take them out and put the old ones back in once she sees them. She is working on the new curtains as I type this.

Pick looks tell all...looks very good.

I am now working on a list of the things I have done to post.
I noticed you have the same set on on the range top with the burner knobs down in the hole.
I fixed this by glueing laminate back to back cut to fit over the top of the knobs. The laminate matches the cutting boards that cover the sinks and covers the hole much the same way. It looks good and works by keeping stuff from falling into the hole when the stove is not in use.

just a thought.........

My biggest modification

I rearranged the floorplan in my GT, and all the projects are inter-related, but the bathroom was the biggest modification. The original was just too small to be of practical use for us, so I moved the wardrobes out and replaced the molded lower fiberglass section. The shower is now a standard 32"x32" home style base and with the wardrobe moved out there is more room for the toilet and sink. I was reluctant to do this but the original was in need of considerable repair anyway. Here's a photo looking aft showing my new floor as well as the base.
