Back in my chosen home town...crazy lil' TorC

Nice to be home for a while and I have been busy doing a redux of my Chinook camper van. It now has a permanent bed, the old cabinets are gone and a small kitchen set up on the top of an old military footlocker. I'll post pix soon. It is now much more comfortable with more usable room. I have eliminated a lot of things I don't use regularly and limited things like food and clothes to the same amount we carry in our truck camper. I now can use the original table and I have a nice couch/bed to sit on or nap on.

Now I have Verizon MiFi as an internet device and can let others use my internet access when camped with them if they don't have an internet wireless device of their own.

I also had been using my expensive  Kermit touring chair and have changed to a cheaper and even more comfortable director type chair that I bought in Quartzsite at the large RV show there. I can leave it out at night once in a while now and not worry about losing a $160 motorcycle touring chair.

I just got the sidecar outfit out and took a ride and it felt so good...the weather is just right during the middle of the day. I had thought I had a starter problem that needed to be addressed, but was pleasantly surprised to find it was not so.

Anyway, I will take some photos soon and publish them to the blog....

Happy Trails,


  1. The weather has been about perfect, hasn't it? I can't wait to see the pictures! You've got a lot of snappin' to do!

    Thanks for the advice on my purchase (I hope!)

    Happy Trails, forever!
