    A Job With benefits = practice

    A lucky occasion for me that I work in a great tire shop with a good boss who lets us take care of our own vehicles when slow business allows. On a reimbursed basis, I get to use my Ranger and DGF's sons' utility trailer to move tires between stores. Well it was time for routine maintenance on...

    Had to do it - Camp Backyard by tent

    While the camper fund continues to grow and prosper, DGF and I just can't get to a PUP this season. As it is, we have the itch to do SOMETHING. Coincidentally, K-Mart was having a tent sale recently. The first round of the sale locally had us purchasing THIS ONE for $79.99. It looked like it was...

    8's or 10's Opions PLEASE

    The camper fund is growing nicely, and luckily, DGF & I have too. C/L has been getting a LOT of looks from me for our soon to be NTU pup. It's normally just going to be the two of us, me @ 6'2", her @ 5'10", and both of us between 220 & 230. (Not saying who's what- safety). The thinking process...

    If'n I buy this.....

    A 1975 Coachman Viking Model V20-D, which by C/L pics looks to be in GREAT shape, though dated. 1) I can WALK to the sale location! Getting it home that way is a whole 'nother story. 2) An asking price of $500 leaves me $700 CASH in hand for new tires, lifter springs and a roof vent, AND more...

    Positive Shopping Experience @ E-trailer

    Just wanted to share a positive shopping experience I enjoyed using a link w/in the portal. DGF's '08 Escape wasn't purchased with a tow package, so I have to "upgrade" it to be capable of our venture into getting a PUP in the not too distant future. Oddly, the Escape does have a dead end...
