Perfect Weekend

We left the slides out for the week, no mice to report, woohoo!

I finished the path yesterday, this took 12 bags of river rock, I love the way it turned out. I’ll be finishing the other side of the deck next year when we decide what to do with it. That white Rubbermaid step will be replaced with a wooden one when I get the supplies to do it.

I took my back out a bit but sometimes pain is good, it reminds you of the work you did. Aleve time!  WP_20130817_007

I cleaned up the sewer area as well, while there I discovered the hydraulic ram has a leak. I reported it to the dealer and then re-ran the auto-level system, it stated no changed needed so the level hasn’t changed. I also plugged in an electronic mouse repeller under the RV in the middle by the tires, we’ll see how it looks next weekend. The slides are in for this next week.


On August 31st there is an auction at the campground for a long time camper there, his name is Ted and he has stage 4 aggressive prostate cancer. Ronda will be putting together a basket to auction off to help pay for the treatment his insurance refuses to pay for because it’s experimental. We don’t have a lot of money so we are using items we have like a TeleNav WorldNav GPS I received from my job 3 years ago to put in the basket. It’s giving me trouble so we may have to change to something else if I can’t find the parts to fix this one, we’ll see.

Sunsets, I take plenty of pictures of them but forget to post them. Not this time, my cell phone doesn’t do justice to this but it’s not too shabby.

Have a great week everybody!

Nice path very neat looking, did you ever make new steps? Did I miss something? Good to hear no mice.

I will need to get some steps now for getting into the camper.

JO - Nope, you didn't miss anything. My back is a little out of sorts so the steps are waiting until the end of the month.

your 'campsite' is looking mighty fine! nice job on the rocks and the pathway!
hope the mice have left for their summer vacation and find a better home to occupy next time!

Sue and Doug - Thanks! I swear I put in more time on the campsite than I do my yard.

Looks good :). Once ya get your truck in a couple years, you'll be able to buy by the cubic yard from a Rock quarry for alot less than what bagged rock costs :).

Erik's RV Blog said...

Big Matt - Agreed but by then I will be done! :) I called a few places and to get rock delivered to the campground, in the allowed time of delivery by the campground owners was just too expensive but the bagged rock was pretty cheap thankfully.

There's no such thing as done, next will come the need for some nicely barked areas, and some raised garden beds.... :p
