    Appreciate the kind words. Sometimes you just can't climb into a hole and pull it in after you, so just do what you have to do when you have to. Sounds like you've seen the elephant, so you know what you have to do. Good luck and safe travels

For those that have been following my musings and rantings I thank you and I apologize for my absence. It started innocent enough. One of our winter snowbird trips had very poor internet connection. After a month of connections so poor I could not get email except for going to Mcdonalds or the library I got out of the habit. My regular blog Whelans on the road | Blog | RV Travel | Snowbirds | Motorhome had an off line ability and I focused on that. My bad... Anyway I am back and hope to stay...

It has been a long winter. Winnie, our motorhome has been stored in a heated warehouse for months now. Each month I would visit, drop off a few items, check batteries, run the generator and heat pump and dream of warmer days. Yesterday I repeated the same routine and to check when I could get her out for the season. As the owner was going to be out of town for the next few weeks he said let's do it tomorrow. I agreed to a time and he would get a clear path to back her out.

The outdoor temps fell below zero....again. With the wind there was no way I was going to spend any time hiking the hills so off to the garage to tackle a welding project. Yes, fixing the cracked plastic shield of the Blue Ox Rock Guard should be an interesting experiment. I have done some welding of broken plastic parts before. But those projects were small pieces not a large smooth surface.

I started with a good surface cleaning of both sides. My careful inspection of the...

When I purchased my used Blue Ox tow bar I presumed I would have to do some work on it. The tow bar was in beautiful shape. The base plate that cam with it was also in great shape. The rock guard, well it needs some help. As I had just installed the base plate of my choice I decided to E-Bay it out. I sold it to a gentleman in Florida for a fair price. I will apply those dollars toward a supplement brake system for the toad. As for tuning up the tow bar a quick call to the fine people at...

Working on vehicles is an adventure. One that is not entirely without a few injuries and a little blood being drawn. Saturday afternoon provided the time to start installing the Rock Jock base plate on our Wrangler Toad. The adventure started with the removal of the plastic valance that Jeep puts on the truck to make it pretty I guess. That was the easy part. As I laid the somewhat bulky steel base plate on my stomach and rolled under the front of the Jeep to check for fit I discovered the frame...
