recycle, regift, tis the season!

When I found out my old generator had not seized up I had high hopes of getting it running and selling it for $450-$500 to offset some of the cost of the new one. My brother Mike helped me set up a test stand, we cleaned up some parts and fixed various electrical connections.

I started shopping other brands, thought … Continue reading snap, I’ve got the power!

All fun trips must come to a close!

 With all of the mechanical issues causing us to get out of Florida so late, we had to hustle home after Poche’s RV Park. After Louisianna, we only stopped at highway rest stops to catch some sleep on the last leg of the trip. When we got home, I managed to get the emission test done so I can get the title and registration done on … Continue reading All fun trips must come to a close!
