Great Eats This Weekend

There’s a guy with a BBQ business called Bird and Bones.  He sets up a mobile smoker on Highway 60 on some weekends.  The best brisket I have ever had.




Guarding the Brush

For all the times I go off road in my golf cart (never) I installed a brush guard to guard the brush.  I think.




Airstreams in Da House

A Bambi and a Nest were camping in the Westgate field next to our park.

Visiting the Cabin

This week we are visiting our cabin in North Carolina.  We were planning on fixing the place up to bring the Airstream (eventually), but we are enjoying it as is.  We have a few years to figure it out.

All is well with the world

The Airstream is back at the Ranch, and all is well with the world.




Excellent Service

I recently had our Airstream serviced at Airstream of Tampa, and they did a fantastic job.

Never Forget

This Memorial Day we remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice so we could be free.

Thank you.

Airstream in Da House

We saw another Airstream in our park this weekend.  Airstreams in our park are rare.  We’re the only one in a permanent slot.  But we occasionally get Airstreams to visit us from time to time.

Camp Mack

Welcome to Camp Mack!  It’s one of the closest RV parks to our River Ranch.  River Ranch was completely booked this weekend. So here we are, a last minute thing we had to do to vacate our lot to pressure wash and reseal it.




Pressure Wash Day

Today is pressure wash day.  We’ll be staying at Camp Mack this weekend while we pressure wash and reseal our deck.

Good Mexican

One of the perks of being back is we get to eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant - Hacienda Mexico in Bartow.

Before and After






New Tires

No, not for the Airstream.  For my tow vehicle.  Decided to get some beefier off road tires for better traction in the snow.  The snow I expect to drive over when I go to our new RV site in North Carolina.




Beautiful Fall Morning

It looks like a beautiful fall morning. Only that technically it’s still winter.

Three Airstreams in Da House

Today we saw three Airstreams at our park.  I was too lazy to take pictures of them.  But I thought I’d post it here for posterity.

Cashew Chicken Day

Today was also Cashew Chicken Day at the Airstream.  I love my Instant Pot!



Wash Day

Today was wash day.  I paid someone $75 and they washed my Airstream.  Living the high life!

New Instant Pot

The Instant Pot test was a success.  The only complaint I had was that the pot seemed too big for the Airstream.  It’s only my wife and I.  So we took the 6 quart pot home, and got a 3 quart pot for the Airstream.  Problem solved!

I started a separate blog to track all the recipes I try out in my new Instant Pot.  If that kind of thing interests you, come take a look at https://instantpot.ourflyingcloud.com/.

New Antenna

For some strange reason, the radio antenna on my Airstream disintegrated. Looks like it went through a hurricane.  Today we replaced it.  Ahhh, the joys of RV ownership...








Instant Pot Test

Testing out our new Instant Pot making potato soup.
