If you make it to the Methow Valley in north central Washington, give us a shout! Wood is a cutey. Have fun on your journey.

The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

we got a "little giant ladder system" so now i can easily clean the outside of the camper. especially the nose where the bugs are splattered. the scaffolding is nice. i took the picture before i spread the platform all the way across the nearest ladder section but you get the idea. its a great ladder to help work on the camper while at home.

newest upgrade? it was for the truck...a new stereo. the truck had the stock radio and no way to plug in my ipod. in the past while traveling if i lost a radio station i just turned the radio off. now, i have a stereo with an ipod docking station built into it. it works great. it keeps the ipod charged too. just when i think im done doing upgrades, i find something else. lol.

Mark
What are you using to keep warm?
Catalytic heaters don"t draw any electricity.
Led lights draw only 1/7 the amps compared to regular bulbs ( at least mine do )
This will help out the battery.
I'm looking at an 8 led lantern , powered by 1 tea light, wind proof, hopefully enough light for the inside of the camper.

The latest mod was to replace the dim led light in the dry bath with one of these 12v LED lights purchased from Amazona: $12

my left taillight on the flatbed was having a ground issue so instead of just replacing it with another incandescent, i replaced both with led. wow...they are super bright!

At $14.00 each, these are on my wish list.  Wishing that I had more time to install them as back up lights.

i have the 4" worklights under my truck so when i pull into a spot in the dark (especially winter time) i can see the ground around me better. they are not the led though. the led work lights were too expensive for me a the time. ill get them changed out in time im sure. $14.00? seems too cheap! i wonder how the quality is? maybe im missing it but i cant find where it says what material the case is. mine right now are a thick rubber. its better than plastic for where i have mone mounted under the truck. better for rocks kicking up and all that.....on edit....oh....aluminum. hmmmm...i wonder how it would hold up?

One trick with Amazon is to put stuff that you'd like on your "wishlist".  They often discount the original price to motivate you.  Sometimes a price will drop as much as 30-percent if the manufacturer wants to clear out their inventory. Sometimes the discount is only 1-percent. 

So keep an eye on the wishlist.   ;)
