    Hey, Mike!
    I’d prefer wood chips (or straw;)) on mine—less likely to track into my Aliner.
    Thanking you in advance,
    :D

    Absolutely. It's a huge improvement. The night light was a "while I'm at it, might as well" sort of thing.

    Fingers crossed for the weather!

    But since you're taking requests, I'd like wood chips please and thank you.
    Fun fact: Today I walked the assembly line where they make the F-35 fighter jets. Soooo cool!

    The first rally I went to in 2016 was the VT rally. We did a "mod walk". I'd like to see if anyone has new or neat mods. I love a good tip or trick to copy. My LED strip is an homage to Mike's strip. I've got boat load done if anyone is interested. But I'd like to see other folk's ideas on storage.

    I know this is probably a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway. I want to install a cross bar on our screen door so we stop pulling on the cheap plastic door handle. I'm going to dig out our drill with bits and bring it along but I'm hoping someone has done a similar mod so I can see where the best place is to mount it.

    I've done it to mine. I'll let you peek. I'm sure Mike has done it too.

    Don't have anything that I need help with (that I know of :) ) but would appreciate being allowed to watch and learn from the masters.

    Flattery will get you everywhere! I don't have any work to do on this trip, but you're welcome to look at the stuff I've done.

    Oops. I misspoke. I have a little finish work to do on Pat's battery electrics and may have a little wiring to do for Jeff & Steph. But that's it. I swear... I think. I'm still bringing all my stuff though.

    Solar project is on hold. Had some things come up that were more pressing. I'm thinking it will be our VT project.

    One thing that we did just discover is that it seems the pilot light went out on the fridge. We ran out of propane because I didn't realize the fridge didn't get changed over to house power when we got back from our Mother's Day trip in May. So now we have full propane and the stove is lighting but the fridge isn't even trying to. I have no idea where to light the pilot light and I need to get that figured out before Jeff leaves on Thursday for the 3 hour drive to PA.

    Never mind. I think I solved my problem. Patience is a virtue.
