A Short Post

Where Are We Today
Rock Glen Family Resort
A Small Project
I am sure that you all have been following Patsy's blog and know what we have been up to. Along with the daily routine at "The Ridge" ,  my trips to London, to work at CanAm RV a couple of days a week, all is well with the Richards.

I would like to thank all those who passed on condolences and concerns to my family and me, when my dad passed away last month.
Remembering good times with my Dad

I  thought I would do a short post on a small project that I recently did. We carry a step ladder on the ladder at the back of our trailer, not where I really want to carry it.
While in Quail Ridge RV park in Huachuca City, Az. last winter, we met a couple who have a Mobilesuite similar to ours. The gentleman had made a couple of brackets and hung his step ladder under and near the front of the trailer. I thought it was a good idea, so once home, I wanted to do the same.

All made ready for paint.

I found some pieces of metal, drew up some plans and asked my good friend Rob if he would help me, Rob has a welder. We, I should say Rob cut the pieces of metal to size, bent pieces and welded them together to make the brackets.  Thanks Rob!
Holes drilled and painted, ready to mount

After I got them home, I painted them and then fastened them to the bottom of the trailer. The ladder fits perfect on the brackets and I feel it is a better place to carry it.

That's it for this post, yes I'm still around and will post again. Thanks for staying tune, until the next take care, safe travels and keep up with Patsy.

The Suite Has Landed

Where Are We Today
My Version of Today

We Have Landed

Since are arrival at 'The Ridge" last Friday, we have been watching and waiting for  the snow to melt enough for us to move the suite up to the top of " The Ridge ".
Monday afternoon showed enough snow had melted to make the move. I decided that the move would happen early Tuesday morning, as the driveway was mushy in places, in the morning, the ground is firmer after a cool night.

Put up the solar motion detector light on the "Bunky " 

Up at 6:30 this morning, after a coffee and some blogs reads, we made the "Suite " ready for that final move. After disconnecting the  satellite cables, moving the generator and the " Broken Wing Weber " out of the way, I hooked up " Black Beauty "  and made the final pull up the lane to the top of the hill, and here we sit by 8:00 a.m.

The light comes on as soon as you step inside.

The rest of the day was setting up, putting away, cleaning up and generally getting things back to normal for the summer. We accomplished quite a bit, but have lots to do and some projects to take on. With rain forecast for tomorrow, we will take a break for the day.

Putting up all our signs.
