That is a campers first essential item, a roll of duct tape. I was looking for some the other day and then remembered I had a fresh roll in the camper and I made sure I put it back.

Poured two 2x6 concrete pads to park it on. Tired of seeing the tires sink into the ground an inch or so every time we park it for a couple of weeks.

TIP: have a roll on both sides of the storage compartment. My rig was so close to the interstate when my tire blew that I could not get to the roll I had on the street side.

Flushed out the black tank using the flush king and a wand. Lotsa nice goodies came out. Yummy.

Unloaded all the uneaten perishable food and dirty clothes out of it from our weekend scuba diving trip. Then parked in the back yard waiting for the next adventure. Might get one more out of her before I winterize it.

I made risers for the stairs because Tunce's paws would sometimes slip off the back of the step. I had 2 pieces of steel cut and added hinges to them so I could fold up the steps. I bent the hinges slightly so when they were in the up position they stayed put and didn't fall down. The white tape was added because at night it's hard for her( or us )to see the step in the dark.
Have to post the pic. Later because I'm at Fort Stevens SP. With only 1 bar and it won't show the pic.

I FINALLY found the squirrel that has been bugging me for weeks running around on my roof. OK, I have hearing issues and wear hearing aids, but it WAS a squirrel. That is my story.......

After traveling from my summer host position to my home base two days ago, 250 miles, the squirrel was still there running around after I was set up. Obviously, even at my advanced age, the squirrel didn't ride 250 miles on the roof. So I started to suspect a mouse in the a/c ducts. Then I finally hit me. The sound was the pull chain hitting one of the light bulbs in my new ceiling fan that I installed just before the squirrel started bugging me. After balancing the fan which was new the squirrel went away.

Sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees!
