What did you do to your Escape today

I sealed off the inside top of my refer behind the instrument panel with some foam pipe insulation I had laying around and I installed some rv gutters over the escape window, the refrigerator lower vent cover and the street side baggage door. Pictures tomorrow as we are having a t/storm now.

I downloaded free Pandora radio into my cellphone this morning, setup some stations that I like, plugged it into my trailer stereo system and it works great! I'm camping right now. Then I called SiriusXM radio and cancelled both of my radio subscriptions effective today. This will save me $36 per month, $432 annually. I had my cellphone playing music, running as a wifi hotspot and timing my coffee brew all at the same time.

I installed custom shelves per Myron's instructions. Of course, I only did this in my imagination because 'Past Tents' hasn't been built yet.....

Jim - are you finding the RV gutters to be necessary, or is this precautionary?

I spent plenty of time stuck in my memory bank remembering camping last week at the Oregon Gathering in Ten Forward. Sure made it tough to come back to work. WHINE!

Hmm...lets see.

A few more hours for Donna to get unstuck from the memory bank.
A couple more days of nasty "work".
A trip to Ten Forward, clean up, organize, store, spruce up, get pretty.

The way I figure it Donna, we will be seeing Ten Forward photos in all their splendor in about 3.25 days...give or take a point!
