GPS Dog Tracker

Technology has advanced to the point where it's feasible to attach a GPS and a cell phone to a dogs neck and track him every where he goes.  We live in wonderful times.

There are several options out there.  Eeny Meeny Miney Mo,  I chose the Whistle 3.  I read an Engadget review and one from Nerd Techy   So I pulled the trigger tonite.  We'll see how it goes when it gets here. 

 

Crating the Dog

Putting the dog in a crate while we are out may seem cruel, but it actually isn't.  It prevents him from getting into trouble.  He sees his crate as a safe space.  He doesn't like being left alone, but sometimes it can't be helped.  So we got a foldable crate by EliteField.  The largest one they make.  It's huge.

Towel Rack Removed

One of the screws holding the towel rack inside the shower rusted. So I decided to remove the towel rack altogether.  Who needs a towel inside the shower?  A little JB Weld,  3 M clear shower floor tape, and voila.

Time for Service

The golf cart is coming up on a year old and 100 hours of service.  Time for an oil change.

 

A Fellow Airstreamer

Memorial Day weekend brings a lot of visitors to River Ranch.  But usually no Airstreams   This weekend we found one.

Memorial Weekend Coming Up

As we celebrate our 1 year anniversary with our Airstream, we also celebrate Memorial Day weekend.  It was a weekend like this last year we drove our AS into it's permanent home at River Ranch RV resort in Florida.  We are blessed to live in a country that affords us these opportunities, and we are grateful to those who have sacrificed to make it possible.

Thank you.

Happy Anniversary!

It was a day like this one year ago that we signed the papers for our Airstream.

What a year it has been.  We love our Airstream more than we did a year ago.  We've spent 49 out of 52 weekends on it.  We've taken it to ten campgrounds.  And when we bought it, we expected it to last us 20 years.

Only 19 to go...

Another Great Weekend

We had another fantastic weekend at our Airstream. No pics or video to share.  I was too busy enjoying myself.  It was very hot and humid.  We spent a lot of time inside the Airstream but late afternoon Saturday was beautiful.  Max, my Labradoodle puppy, enjoyed running around without a leash.

This weekend was THE reason I got into Airstreams.

Fixed My First Rivet Hole

Over the past year I've found 4-5 rivet heads on the floor.  These come from rivets that have broken off somewhere inside the Airstream. But there's literally thousands of rivets and they are very small, so finding the holes these came from has been next to impossible.

Last night I was staring at the ceiling and found one.  Yay!  I broke out my rivet gun and patched that hole right up. I'm almost a rivet master.  Almost.

It's Hump Day

It's that day of the week that your not closer to the end or the beginning.  Reminds me of that old commercial "Calgon, take me away!".  Is it Friday yet?

Another Beautiful Weekend

It barely broke 80 degrees.  I'm afraid this will be the last sub 90 degree weekend for a while.

Another Airstream

We are always excited when another Airstream decides to visit River Ranch.  We are the only Airstream in residence,  But from time to time we get Airstream visitors.  This is a 1993 Excella.

Another Missed Weekend

We did not go to the trailer this weekend.  Third time in almost a year.  I really hate missing a weekend.  But Max had a surgery and had to be "contained".  That's very hard to do at the ranch.  So, for Max, I'll miss a weekend.
