Default What fun did you have with your FF today?

Since we are busy on the sticks and bricks, or make that sticks and steel, I'd like to hear what you are doing. It's been so long since we've done anything remotely resembling fun that I think we've forgotten how.

What are you doing to your RV? We just ordered a Champion inverter generator so that we can Camp in the less crowded places. We like to just go explore around our great state for two night stints. In September we'll be taking an 11 night trip all around the Upper Peninsula of Michigan if all goes well.

Today's fun is getting ready for our next trip, starting Aug 11, to Idaho and Montana. Somehow, working on the trailer is more fun than most other purely recreational activities.

Michigantraveler, we are building a barndominium, and our FF is parked inside the barn while we build out the house part. We've been living in the FF since April 1 and haven't done a thing to it that wasn't an emergency. When we first moved out here, electricity was supposed to be connected within a few days. We had a generator and thought we could stand the noise (it was a really loud one) for a few days. We were already using the generator during the day to run the mitre saw and hand tools. But then it went kaput and we bought a little 3400 Champion from CW. Soooo much quieter and we can stick in the back of the pickup when we go camping. Turns out we lived here without electricity for 5 weeks before they finally got our electricity hooked up. And FYI, the 3400 Champion runs 8-1/2 hours with the a/c on, and not a moment longer. Dh filled it at 9pm when we went to bed and I had the privilege of filling it again at 5am before it ran out again. That got really old.

Profdant, that sounds like a great trip. And cool. How I would love the cool weather right now. What are you going to do on your trip?

Marti, check out Pure Living For Life on YouTube. They have been living in a FF189fbr for over a year while they develop their property in the northwest (Idaho?). They put the FF in a big cloth garagelike thing. Then they build a shack on the front with s woodstove. Oh, and a hot tub deck (???). They did put in a septic in the Rocky earth. And I think they have electric. Anyway. We haven't followed them for a while but your dream reminds me of theirs. I think they are still living in the FF.

Oh yeah! I've seen that. Their FF had some kind of problem so it had to be covered, right? They have, or had, it a lot worse than us. At least we are in a big, dry, barn and don't have to deal with cold. Now hot is another matter. This has been a hot and humid summer here.

Marti, we are headed to Idaho for the eclipse, and then on to Montana and Northern Washington. We hope to be on the road for a month.

We are leaving mid August and heading north for the eclipse in Oregon. We have friends in the Salem/Silverton area where we can park the TT. Looking forward to cruising on the OR and CA coast on the way back.

In the next day or so will check over the XT-276 Toy Hauler for the trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

It's the ONLY place I've seen two other 276's and a few years back, there was one parked right next to mine.

Enjoy! Wish we could make another trip back to S. Dakota, but school starts soon and I may be having knee surgery soon, so it's a distant dream ��
