Sleeping Beauty home for a second time!!!

Okay, so she was parked at the in-laws for the last seven months and their house just sold. Closes tomorrow at 2pm. So here I am running around franticly looking for a place to park her. Then I pondered,why not my back yard??!!Of course the wife gave me that look, you know what I'm talking about guys, that look!! Long story short, a few roses and some Swiss chocolates and shazaam, I got the green light
Here are some picks of her and you guessed it, right in my back yard, one foot from the neighbors fence, yippeeeeee!!
Now I can walk outside, electric source right there and who knows, she might get some more attention than usual. The drive out to the in laws was 15min, so this will be real nice!!
I was a little nervous in parking her. Had to back up a small hill, across the neighbors driveway(they were at work), over my front lawn and carefully squeezed between the fence and the side of my house. I figured with my experience in saving her from the forest, this would be a walk in the park, and it was.
Enjoy the picks and notice how close I am to the neighbors fence!!!

If the neighbors complain about the trailer, just get a large gray tarp, about 5' of flex sewer hose in gray and cover it with the hose hanging on the front end. tell them it is you pet elephant..... If you have to use a blue tarp, tell them it is Horton from DR. Seuss.

With it so close, you'll find you'll be in it every spare minute tinkering around with something or other. At least your wife will always know where you are.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
