Camper RV Remodel Video

Just a quick tour of our finished (?) travel trailer.  Yes, I need to learn skills in videography.  LOL.  Anyway, I will never think it is quite finished so I thought I would film it, rather than wait forever.  Enjoy.

Exciting times with the Coronavirus going on.  I bought myself some new friends for this quarantine time.  Some chicks and ducklings.  I found that the ducklings were making the tote too wet for the chicks and I had trouble keeping up with getting it dry.  I saw a youtube video from Homesteady using a paint […]

I absolutely love the first tilling of the garden.  It looks so fresh and clean.  We are preparing to plant potatoes and corn.  I know a lot of people like to do no-till gardening, but there are a lot of pros to tilling:  1) I think the worms are much deeper than some people think […]
