Being fairly new to this toyhauler thing, please tell me this is the last of my big expenditures for a while. Other than gas that is. I had the parking pad down before I took delivery in mid May. I had the car/RV port put up while my RV was in the shop last month.

Can't see much from the side view because of the pecan tree. Us Bubbas pronounce that
pee-can.






P.S. Two weeks from tomorrow the hunting season starts. Can't wait!!!

Looks good BB. I was thinking of doing that myself this weekend. It is quite an involved project here, I have to cut a bit of the roof on the side of my house back.

Looks good there Bubba. If they gotta be outside thats the best way. Now put a little trim down the sides part way and you'll have it.

uh-huh ....

...looks like you poured a concrete pad with a crushed gravel drive, or maybe the whole thing is rock. I'd love to have that.
You keeping that extension cord plugged in to the trailer all the time, or just when you check the rig out?
And new boards for your gate too... when you put the gate in were the older boards too old to use?
I like that whole thing you did.

I have a large lot, but it takes a billy-goat to get to my front door, much less park something here. Its a drag paying for storage every month and at the same time having neighbors with horses. Time to call a civil engr.

Nice parking Bubba

FatDog,
I believe they call that crusher run. It looks like gravel but once it got wet, it set up like concrete. Not keeping it plugged in at all times. I usually plug it in on the weekends because I am out there doing something in it or under it. It won't sit too long unused, I bought it to use. Hunting season starts in two weeks and I will be using it at least every other weekend until early January.
The gate is new, I put it in just before I had the drive put in. It is treated wood. I will have to replace the rest of the back fence soon.
Probably won't happen until after hunting season. I figured after what I spent for the Warrior, what's another $2500 to have easy access to it and protect it. Cain't take it with you, right?

one last question there Bubba, ...
where you guys storing your catch.
Birds ? .. prolly small enough to keep in the small reefer.
Critters? Deer? That can take some room. Are you dressing them there and freezing? Where does that stuff go?
You have a 8cu.ft. reefer in your rig, and something tells me you are going to bring a six pack or two along ...

FatDog, in answer to your last question, when I get a deer it will be processed and frozen at a processing business in Graham TX where my lease is. I will have to transport the meat home in ice chests and put the meat in a freezer I have in my garage. I hope to get several turkeys off the lease this year also. May even get lucky enough to get a wild hog this year. We have seen a lot of hog tracks near one of our deer blinds. MEAT!!!!
Doves I can freeze in the TH freezer.
Is it September 1 yet?
