Beautiful place coming together there!
What’s under the cover? Monte SS?


Yup, Yup, I was wondering the same thing. Maybe just a regular Monet ??? Show me a picture of a covered up car and I want to know what it is.

Snip...

There should not be another camper after him since he is on his own property next to his home he is building. At least that is how I read his post.

Me two - LOL! Where did you go Lwiddis? I don't come on here much any more, but every time I do, I can be assured that I will see at least one of your condescending blurbs

Who's asking?

Most of my camping is fair weather.

Running my generator for 1 hr before bed when it's 30F doesn't equate to more batteries and more solar panels.


Keep doing exactly what you're doing. Sounds like a good plan

Ohooo. I've never seen one of them in person. Not to many cars like Mercedes around here.

153 days and counting!

Got through a couple of 22F nights managing the generator / baseboard heater, furnace and hot water heater.
Bathroom tap froze for a bit....got it thawed out.

After the first snow fall I decided to retract the awning.

It had been deployed since June 1 and I used guy lines to angle it one way so rain water would go that direction.
Well it seems one side got a little stretched out and now it won't retract cleanly....rolls up on a slight angle and won't completely stow.

I'll look at that in the spring.

Looks like I have another 30 days to go before the house is move in able.

Nice car and even nicer "cabin"!
Sounds like fun. I've built a house in the woods and a couple highway projects living out of a trailer or camper and it was awesome. Like a long term camping trip!
