Foodie called me late afternoon. He is so sweet; always checking in on me. His brother (Navy) and him are planning yet another backpacking trip in a week. He\’s always telling me we should get that tent trailer of ours out and go camping.
The reason why we can\’t do that at this time, is the tent trailer is in our side yard and in front of it is a pallet full of heavy cement pavers. My husband is in the process of extending our patio. Plus I am not fond of HOT weather camping. I much prefer the Fall months to go out. Unless we\’re going to the coast but right now, Humboldt County has too much Covid and I don\’t want to go there just yet. No one goes camping in the Fall – plus the mountains are so beautiful.
We bought the tent trailer in 2019 just after the fire in Paradise. It was built around the late 70\’s so its vintage. Our original plan was to fix it up which we haven\’t done yet. It also needs a new canvas which is about $1000. It has some rips in the canvas but I am hoping I can salvage it while saving at least half of the amount. I don\’t like to use the credit card for things like this.
I would eventually like to put in a new floor and paint the cabinets. Change out the curtains. What I want to do, and what actually gets done, are two different things.
I do hope we can get her out in Sept/October. Just go somewhere remote for a week – heck even a weekend would be good. I just need to smell the trees and cook outside and watch the wildlife.
Here\’s the original post showing a photo of how I would love to decorate it.
