Storms over... For now 😬

Posted 01-24-2023 at 10:47 PM by Misjudg

Well... I made it so far. I fear I have significant water damage. My windowindows I thought were leaking... Well yes they were, but not like I thought. The roof had a leak and it wasn't obvious. I saw nothing from the inside. It leaked in between the walls and that's where the water was coming from. I tarped the roof best I could without blowing away ( that would be me blowing away) and now I have it off to air it out hopefully it'll dry somewhat. But I have a feeling that it's going to take more...

🎶🎵 Stormy weather 🎵🎶

Posted 01-10-2023 at 04:15 AM by Misjudg



Well heck... It's storming here in Cali. Lost my vent in bathroom (blew off). Roof now peeling. I got the stuff to fix it temporarily but the rain and more importantly the wind. Try first thing in morning. That's got me worried. The damage the water will do. When it rains it pours ..

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Posted 12-24-2022 at 03:30 AM by Misjudg

Thank you all for your support and help in my journey. I've had a lot of set backs and grief and without all your knowledge I surely wouldn't have made it this far. I'm hoping in the new year I'll have more positive things to share. From day one you've given me support that I much needed to keep going. Thank you from my heart. Many blessings to you all.

Much love and respect,

First "disaster" in the RV

Posted 10-29-2022 at 08:54 PM by HarryStone

Ok, not so much a disaster, but it's the first time we had to stop a trip because of an issue. We were on the road home from Ca. for my mom's memorial service, and got to Albuquerque at about 2 PM. and the Tire Minder system alarmed to a tire that was losing pressure. I pulled over on interstate 40, right in the middle of downtown Albq, at the start of the off ramp for Carlisle Blvd. After I got stopped, the pressure went from 40 to zero in about 30 seconds. Called Progressive roadside assistance,...

In addition...

Posted 06-23-2022 at 01:20 AM by Misjudg

I would just like to say that I was told that this RV was fine everything was great in my defense and I actually believed him and I shouldn't have I should have known better but so I came into this thinking everything was okay but within a matter of hours I was realizing like really nothing works it turns on and off and that's about it but nothing works I felt like he was just rushing and just you know trying to just be done with it and not help me anymore if I hadn't had surgery and been so out...

So discouraged

Posted 06-23-2022 at 01:17 AM by Misjudg

All I can say is every time I make a little progress I get knocked the heck back before square one I can't make any headway. I had all these plans like I'm going to do this this week and next week and then my next check I'm going to do this every ding time something gets messed up and I'm even set further back there's so many things I need to do and I just it's out of my reach and I'm so discouraged because I really love my RV it's grown on me and now I feel like my brother just really picked out...

Went Full Time May 1st 2022

Posted 06-20-2022 at 01:56 PM by Glory_Bound

The 4 of us (my husband, our dog, cat and myself) moved into our beautiful 1994 Newmar Kountry Aire and set out on a new adventure and a new chapter in our lives. We decided to start at a State Park with hook ups while we get our rv legs under us. Our future intent is to mostly boondock but we still have a lot to learn about Glory and some work to do on her before she and we are ready to go full boodock.

Our first month and a half has been full of interesting experiences from...

Checking in

Posted 06-02-2022 at 09:23 PM by Misjudg

Well so far this boondocking and bouncing around hasn't been so bad it hasn't ups and downs. I think once I get so many things repaired it will be a lot easier. My schedule is just so crazy with these two jobs, there's only one dump station that's in the area and it's a 9:00 to 5:00. So it's really hard for me to get there, but I've been doing it and it's so far it's working out. The whole non-commitment thing is kind of cool, I just have a lot of stuff I need to take care of.
One thing...

Our First Trip

Posted 04-14-2022 at 03:09 PM by catrispoli2

Preparing for our maiden voyage today and I am committed to having the best time with the best attitude. After forty years of working hard and raising four children; nothing in my future can be harder.
A great attitude begets a great mood which begets a great day; becoming a great year and a great life.
Traveling to the Catskills for Easter with the man I love and visiting my family. It doesn't get better! Happy Easter to all and may all our dreams come true!
