I got back to Tyler near the end of March, and I’ve been working on the trailer ever since. There’s definite progress, but I feel like it’s going slowly. A zillion little details, and the logistics of the correct order-of-operations is kind of crazy too. Continue reading Construction
Picked up the trailer this morning, traveled for a bit, found another great boondocking site, and then my first dust storm! Continue reading The Full Trio – and a dust storm!
Not going anywhere today. Wind is blowing the trailer back and forth while I’m sitting on the couch. I’m going to sit this one out. Continue reading Windy Day
It’s been a good day today. Left the house around 9am and after running some errands, I formally hit the road at 10am. The truck and trailer behaved well today.

Unfortunately, the weather is absolutely terrible with a wind chill advisory today and tomorrow and then a winter storm warning on Friday and Saturday. Continue reading RV en route to Wisconsin!
