Getting a little antsy

Im beginning to think our first outing with our new to us TT is never gonna happen! With the remodel and new tires and seems like so much still left to do!! And yet the weather is sooooo beautiful and I hear the campsites SCREAMING my name...... Ugh! The latest headache is we had to install new kitchen sink as the original one was plastic and cracked. So we upgraded to an aluminum one in same exact size YET what we didn't realize is that the countertop is not as thick as regular countertops so when we installed it it would not tighten down enough. So to solve this we either have to shim the sink underneath making it the same thickness as regular counters or just upgrade our countertops. We have some scrap countertops in garage from house remodel so I'm leaning that way but DH thinks that'll be too much work. :-/ so,,,,,,,,, wait on campsites wait on.......y'all have some fun for me ok?

No worries,

You'll be camping in no time.

I've been a little stressed myself. 30 days left till we leave for the PNW for 4 months, seems like my to do list is getting longer instead of shorter.

Take DH out to the TT with a few beers, he'll get er done!

Thanks for the encouragement :-). I am trying to stay positive but like you said our list just keeps getting longer too! Today we discovered a gas leak that will be checked out Tues. ugh. We were so uneducated when we bought this TT. if I had it all to do over I would have done my homework before jumping head first! You know that song that says if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. ? Wel. That's my TT!!!!

Btw what does PNW stand for?

Just sounds cool to me, PNW is cool compared to So Cal where I come from.
Got up to 95 degree's today.

Time to fly north for the summer!

If time is getting to you consider the easy way out for now and just shim the sink, then when your time schedule suits you go ahead and redo the counter tops.

Oh! Think I'd take the heat over the cold though. Lol! But I sure would love to travel to either of the two places! Here in KY we get 4 full seasons very different from one another so that keeps me happy since I like change every once in a while. Once I'm sick of the heat it turns cold! You know the old saying. If you don't like the weather just stay a while....it'll change lol!

Like others have said.... Shim the sink that is easy and make the counter replacement a winter project. There will always be upgrades you want so take them a little at a time or you never find time to enjoy them.

Good luck!

Lol! Yeah I know right! Imagine when we pull up in our campsite and all the children start exiting our 15 passenger like a clown car. I'm sure they are thinking "there goes the neighborhood!" hahaha!

And Taz you are soooo right! I'm gonna try to keep that in my mind when I see these little aggravations. Thanks!
