View from inside.

I took some pics the other morning of my view from inside the fithwheel. As my view out the windows will once again be changing in just a couple days, what better time to share.







After previewing these pics it was funny to realize that i was logged into my blog when i took these for my blog. lol

Long Vacation

I haven't posted in awhile because there's been nothing to post about. But today I made up my mind, or rather it was made for me that i will 100% be moving back to Michigan. Ive been toying with the idea for a few weeks. There's work for me up there, and the work down here just isn't happening. I discussed my plans with the neighbor lady and figured either she would pony up some work and id stay or id go ahead with my plans to move back north. To my utter surprise there was a third option that i had not foreseen and that was she would get pissed and tell me to leave.

So come April 1st hell or high water, I'm getting outta hear. It will suck to go back north just when the weather is consistently getting warmer. Today it was 83 which made me realize one thing. This trailer will be like an oven this summer. I'm going to have to find some place with some shade to park under or i just may cook in here even with AC.

Sunday report

Today was a great day. I was up and about in just jeans and a tshirt at 7:30 am. The rain that we got through the night has made a nice mud hole just outside my door on the fithwheel once again. but the dogs are being smart and hanging out under the awning.

I went to my brothers for dinner. Even through Jason and Maria where not there there, we still had an excellent dinner. Roast with carrots, tatters, onions, garilic, salid, with all the fixings of mushrooms, cheese, tomatotes, bacon bits. the works. it was a very enjoyeable meal. .

After dinner i got a call on some work back in Michigan. I was told to call when i get home so i did as i was told and got his voice mail at a little past 8:30 so i let him know i was calling back and now the ball is back in his court. guess ill hear form him in the morning. Im considering heading back to the same old shit ive been doing all my life. I know i can make some money up there. And i cant sell anything from down here. somthing has got to give. Im giving it untill the end of the month. I will have a choice set in stone by then. If i stay down here, there is the fear of the unknown. the suprise of whats going to happen next, and the people that ill meet along the way.

If i head back north i may be able to make a few coin but at the end of the day its all the same old shit that i just left behind. there is a since of familaritly there. knowing where and how to get things done. There are reasons that i left the first time. those things have not been taken care of. so id be pretty much be walking right back into what i left behind.;

so now i got to make the big decision on weither or not to move back to michigan.

Its getting warmer

Thats right its getting warmer down here. Which doesent mean that im getting anything else done on the house. I still dont have the supplys to finish makeing it liveable. I found out that the work that was supposed to be comeing my way isent. But when one door closes another opens. Now the neighbor lady wants me to take the radio out of her car and see if i can fix the trunk. I also been talking to the neighbor about a garden this year. And after bringing it up with the neighbor lady i was told that the guy im replacing (JC) and her dad where the only ones to get the old tractor to run. So took a short look today at it. WTF i dont know shit about tractors. Im not a farmer. I have no idea how to plow a fucking field. But wait, ive always been able to figure out how to drive things. Ive driven off road dump trucks with 8ft. tires that dont actually turn, the frame pivots in the middle as well as frontend loaders that did the same. From dozers to forklifts to semi's, when it came down to it i figured it out very quickly. So it looks like very soon i will be reporting on the adventures of garding. I'll get some pics of the old ass tractor. I looked for a name but couldnt find one. What i do know is its really freakin old.

I did manage to get the snow plow mount cut off the bronco and boy it sure handles different. It turns REALLY EASY. Like so easy that you can over steer. The front end is back up where it sould be and my brother came over and we ripped all the wireing for the plow out. it looks sooo much cleaner under the hood now. Next order of buisness for it is a muffler. I didnt care about it when i was in Elkhart but i also wasent driving it on the streets anymore either.
