A little blog about a motoryhome.
One may work hard for a living, but one does have to get outta the house now and then. When the family and I travel, we use the motoryhome. So, enjoy a few pictures from the travels. And you try to get out more!
Sit back with yer favorite brew, take off yer boots and be sure to click on the pictures to enlarge them for your enjoyment!
The Windy is resting for now, all clean and loaded with clothes and um, cat litter...
I had fun airing up the fronts. I had to remove the purdy chrome wheel covers so the air pump fitting would screw on tight. It takes the pump about one minute per pound of air, but after a while the tyres were properly inflated. I did manage to blow a fuse.
I'm gonna wait until after this trip to do the digital tv thingy. I do think that I have a broken antenna, so I'll pack an antenna that I can rig outta sight inside. Gotta be careful with those outside antennae.
I remember one time, leaving a park on the beach down in Galveston, I noticed someone twirling their hand in the air. That's the universal motorhomer's sign for, "Hay, stooopid, you left your antenna up!" I think the antenna just broke because of old age, or over-exuberant cranking.
Oh, did I mention that I've shined the tyres? Lookin' showroom fresh!
I've been getting Windy ready today for the trip Nawth. First it was a drive to the Discount Tire store to check the balance on the front tyres. Apparently, DT doesn't make enough money on 19.5 tyres, so they refused to do work they've done in the past, saying somebody's tyre blew sometime somewhere. Hawgwash. 19.5s are safe since they're one piece wheels.
Anyhoo, after a good grumble, I washed up Windy and it looks goood.
Tomorry I'm gonna get an off-air digital receiver and rig an electronic antenna and run all that thru the satellite receiver so the tv system will be up to date for the 'digital conversion' coming next year. DirecTV's H20 receivers will pick up off-air broadcasts and incorporate those channels into the guide. Two problemos I have are that the newer H21 receivers don't pick up off-air channels and the satellite tooner in the Windy is an older model anyhoo. But my older model does pass thru off-air tv. I'll upgrade it when I ditch the reg'lar tv and put an hdtv up front. Then I'll have off-air and satellite hd. I'll probably never go outside.... no, wait, I can watch tv outside. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH!
Heading off to Tennessee and Indiananner at the end of the month just because it's there. I know, I know... Most peeps head the other direction as winter approaches. But I'm different, 'K?
Got the Windy all gassed up. Replaced a burned out lite bulb and verified that all three brand-spankin' new batteries are performing properly. I replaced 'em all by myself! All the mechanicals are good to go.
