Susie well check and Tent Trailer Update

Susie earlier in the year. 

Yesterday, before we left for the movies, I brought my cat, Susie into the vet for her check-up and to get her nails clipped. I always enjoy going to the vet for a check-up – it\’s like when I had babies – I used to love those well-baby checkups. Susie actually enjoys getting out for an adventure – I get out her crate and she gets right in and settles in for the ride over. When in the office she likes to walk all over the paperwork, the counter – she thinks she is a goddess. 

You know you\’re OLD when the vet talks nicely about your cat/or dog and you feel all pumped up and proud. Just like I used to feel when I had my babies. 

The Tent Trailer UPDATE 

The demolition of all the old wood and the skin is pretty much done. He\’s breaking it down to bare bones and will have to rebuild the whole roof. 


The foam that is used for insulation is gone – that brown stuff is the aged glue. Yesterday he went out shopping for wood to build the frame. Dang, wood is expensive! 

He assures me he knows what he is doing. 

This portion of our side yard gets full afternoon sun and when it\’s over 100 out, I won\’t let him work out in it. Yesterday and so far today, the sun is blotted out due to the smoke, and it does seem a little cooler. He says he will start cutting wood maybe this afternoon or tomorrow. 

I\’m envisioning stained wood panels for the roof. I don\’t want that white fiberglass skin on it. I\’m going for a rustic cabin look. I thought of going beachy, but everyone does that now and I love the outdoors and mountains, so why not turn my tent trailer into a cabin on wheels. 

Here are some trailers that used wood instead of the \”skin\”.

    I like the wood skin RVs! Very classy. Can't wait to see the finished product. You'll have to extend both pinkies while camping. *lol*We're still looking around for a used motorhome that's affordable. Steve said \”No towables again\”. Alrighty, then.It's been raining cats and dogs here. Our road is g-o-n-e. I've posted pics on FB it's so deep and this is a sandy road! Guess the County is finally gonna have to do something about it … [not holding my breathe]Blessings. xx

    A trailer that's like a cabin will be great. I keep hearing that wood is expensive. I also feel so very proud when someone admires my dogs.Love,Janie

    And we're the other way around – we had 2 motorhomes a 34 foot and a 28 ft but gas is too high here in California and they sat in the side yard more than they were being used. No more recreational vehicles with engines for us.
