Shorewood Oregon, Sep 1, 2012

We camped at Shorewood rv near rock away beach. It was a nice spot over all, right up to the coast line! We must go back to that location again! Ran the fridge off of propane, worked well. Picked up a used 1967 Aristocrat icebox on the way back, I am going to restore that…

Dry camping deschutes river 8.25.12

All went well, we went dry camping with the Waineos. It was a little warm out but the nights were cool. I realize the fridge works better on propane than 110 power.

Julie Anne found some great vinyl online. We decided to decorate the trailer in the 1970s video game bitmap theme. With the new bright white paint job and the vinyl the trailer is starting to come together. I also added a used car radio to the inside. It has a AUX input for music from…

Supplies and hard to find parts

I found a sheet metal fab shop in Portland that was able to copy the front panel. We cut and molded a sheet of diamond plate 87″ x 17.5″. This will be the new rock guard. Now I just have to fit it on. I also went out to Park Rose hardware and pick up…

Spring 2012 rebuilding the front

Rebuilding the front end is a lot easier after my prior experiences. Having the Kreg jig and the right tools made the rebuild a weekend long project. The hardest part is pulling the skin off and the propane tanks. I found a bunch of rot on the front two corners but it looks like it…
