    like those but how heavy and why aren't there flowers stuck in there [?]
    I moved a permanent gazebo where I park the Pup and will be laying shellrock and have a powerbox to wire for a permanent CG site in Camp Yard [8D]

    Cement anchors are 18lb each. DW and I talked about straws for flowers, but decided not to do that. :)

    I put new bedding on one of the beds. Looks great besides the fact that its a little too big. Oh well looks like more sewing for me!

    Painted back bumper black. Sanded a fiberglass repair so it can be painted in the near future [;)]
    Getting a new set of drawer faces made. [:D] Repacked everything that we had used a couple of weeks ago at music fest.

    Cool. This is the kind of thing that requires [CAM] for us all to enjoy. [:D]

    Hey bud, nice idea for the cement blocks. Are you going to paint them to match the pup?

    I went on the 2nd (and final) test trip before I remodel/refurbish my 1977 Starcraft Starflie 6. I got to see both back cables break in the same trip. That means the camper is out of commission until I gut it. I was going to work on it anyway, but now I don't have much choice (unless I sell it for parts - which the DW might prefer [;)]).

    Looking forward to the project anyway....

    Finished night lights for DW & kids. 3 LEDs across baseboard of slideout dinette. No more stumbling around in the dark.

    YES, thinking about going with green to match the Fleetwood green canvas, or brown, to match the outdoor rug.. The first set was white.

    Bought a set of fleece sheets for the main bunk, from Penney's. For ground camping, we've had polarfleece liners for years, and I really noticed the dampness at Grand Canyon the week before last. That was when I realized the camping we had done in similar weather since we began using the pup again last year had been when we had hook-ups and the electric mattress pad. Hope these sheets work, I may buy a set for the other bed when/if they run a better sale, though this was about 60% off.

    Put the old pup on CL, the next opportunity to have it advertised through DH's place of employment won't be for a couple more weeks. It would be very nice to sell this pup so I can park int he driveway again - OTH, my backing skills with the 4Runner have improved with parking it in the street.

    Replaced all the drawer hardware( got rid of gold, brushed nickel instead.), cleaned the pup, washes everything, condensed the gear, completed the fridge mod, soldered and heat strinked the fan connections, greased the jacks and all the bearings. Next it is to clean up all the trailer wiring.

    We took our PUP out to Carpenteria State Beach. We stayed 6 days/nights sleeping to the waves crashing on the beach and making smores over the campfire on the maiden voyage of our PUP. Life is good!

    [:D] Spent all day Saturday cleaning and repacking the PUP for an upcoming outting. Cannot wait. I had a sticking latch on the door that I fixed. Took a bunch of unnecessary stuff out to make room for different unnecessary stuff [LOL]

    Well for starters I replaced all of the receptacles inside, replaced the gray water and black water release valves, added a slide shelf inside the cabinet, and getting ready for a long weekend with a nice cool one at that in our fleetwood avalon POP up. Camp and play hard this weekend everyone and be safe.
