When Axles Go Bad

When Axles Go Bad

At this moment I am about half way finished two posts, I’m working on details about my trip since I left Delaware on June 16, and the second about… The. Black. Tank. I’m starting this new post to tell you about my day. You may recall Sylvia went in to get new axles. I dropped her off in April before I took my trip to the east, and picked her up mid June; since then we’ve traveled about 5000 +/- miles….

For All that is Good and Holy

For All that is Good and Holy

Recently Jen visited me out in Colorado for her Mountain Sabbatical, and as usual it was a glorious trip. We snowmobiled out in Leadville, tubed in Frisco, dined in Minturn, biked in Carbondale, and soaked in Glenwood Springs. One night I was telling a story that up until then had kept to myself. Since the telling I have been giggling up a storm remembering her face, with tears of laughter streaming down. Good belly laughs. And so I will tell…

Once Upon a Tent

Once Upon a Tent

A quick funny story. Last year, when the trailer was in for service, I stayed in my tent. I’ve gotten pretty handy with the dog and the cat in there. It’s a 4 person ALPS Mountaineering tent, so there’s loads of room for bedding and pet accouterments. I was suckered in to buying a new litter, the “Slide” from Arm and Hammer. I liked the promise of what it could bring. Ella, my cat isn’t the worst with getting the…

Repairs: Human and Trailer

Repairs: Human and Trailer

I am sitting in Delaware at the moment, Sylvia stayed home in Colorado. We are both having repairs done. Someone, not pointing fingers, maybe rolled over a curb in a Home Depot parking lot. Or at least that could have been one time, there may have been others… and so she’s in for new axels, and new tires. I am pretty excited for the repair, and all in all it’s not too bad expense wise. (Don’t get me wrong, it’s…

Winter Water

Winter Water

I previously wrote about water here… Water in the winter is a whole new ballgame. At the end of the summer, I made an appointment to have heating pads installed on each of my water tanks, based on a suggestion from the Service Department I was taking Sylvia to. I had been going to Lazy Days, which is where I purchased her. I generally know that it’s best to find a local “mechanic” for those general maintenance items for typical…

Between a Rock and a Trailer

Between a Rock and a Trailer

I left Girl Scout camp, and didn’t really have a place to go. I decided to head to where my Sunday reservation was, West Chicago Creek Campground, near Mt. Evans and Idaho Spring. It’s a Forest Service Campground in the Arapaho National Forest. I am having some serious hurdles finding information on some of these campgrounds. I think they should perhaps come with a level of expertise rating system. Frankly I had no business being up there, reservation or not….
