1983 pace arrow adventures...
Took the MH aka " Space Arrow" to work last set.. Went cruising around the mountain road while i was there.. Sun one day, snow the next...

Hopeing the huge snow drift is finally melted up ahead... Others wise i'll have to back up this steep hill ahead...







Going down the very steep switchbacks...one more switch back to go...fingers crossed on the snow drift being melted....



Made it! Nice little camping spot at bottom of the switch backs...was working night shift... Slept for two hrs before the rain started... Had to get up and seal my leaking roof.... Raped my airconditioning unit with an emergency blanket and duct tape.. Haha.. But it worked...



This is the next morning in the parking lot at work...june 9 2012.... I'm missing my woodstove now.....



My camping spot.. 50 feet from a nice mountain stream...and five min from work...


Need water to take a nice hot shower...

A few pictures got screwed up there...


This is where i camped



Needed water for a nice hot shower... Crappy weather for june!!



Used a drill pump and my drill, fired up the generator and pumped the water into my tanks...works awsome. Takes about 1.5 min to drain each 5 gallon tank...i use this same drill pump to feed my pressure washer from the creeks and streams..oh and to fill my hot tub.. Lol

I've run a garden hose to a running river like that and filled my water tank with the pump before. I plumbed in a shower head a few months earlier and so it was a simple matter of swapping a hose or two to make it siphon and fill the water tank.

But I my engine was overheating and I needed the water to cool the engine down every 5 miles until I could get off the mountain.

Mountain Camping is the best. And to be able to work and camp at the same time has got to be pretty special.

I don't think I'm brave enough to do that above the snow line and in the back woods though!

Does parking lot camping count?

I just got a generator from a friend of mine that put an on board propane unit in his rig, I was eager to use it so I told the wife that I am going to set it up at the lacrosse tournament and grill hot dogs and provide a place for the coaches, team and parents to relax between games. Generator worked great and everyone had a blast. We had a lot of fun and looking forward to more adventures without hookups.

Charlestown Breachway, RI

Check out Charlestown Breachway, RI, it's "closed" from November to March each year but there's a boat launch there so the gate stays open . . . we go every November for the last family outing of the year. There were a half dozen other groups there this past weekend and a bunch of fishermen.
