Designing a kayak rack for the back of the truck (done1)

Getting ready to build a kayak rack for the back of the truck. Don't know why this is so intimidating, except the fact that we drive about 70 miles an hour and I'm afraid it may fly apart and kill someone behind us.


UPDATE: BUILT THE KAYAK RACK! SEE THE TUTORIAL HERE

New Dishes for the Camper! Yay!

Ok ya'll I have to share this! I am excited! By what you ask? Well, I have been married to my dear hubby for 10 years, and our camping dishes have been old Corelle from his, um, previous spouse. Which were ugly enough that she left them behind when she cleaned him out. So, being the type of person who says "THINGS don't matter" I've lived with the ugly dishes, quietly (well, mostly quietly, although I have my moments)

Well - NO MORE! Today we bought a brand new set of really pretty Corelle dishes in preparation for our big migration to Niagra Falls in the camper. (no, I have not finished repairing the window under the sink, but it was nice of you to ask) Dishes are important too, you know.


Aren't they pretty? They're called Midnight Garden
They came today, and I can't wait to donate the others to Goodwill and they can grace someone else's camper. 

What do you use in your camper? 

Now, get off the computer and go outside! Life's better outside!

New Camper Window! aka blown tire (np)

Hubby and I took the camper out to test all my 'improvements' and I'm happy to say that everything worked! Most were even better than I thought they would be!! Whoo hoo! This is not always the case with ideas I get in the middle of the night LOL



So, now that they've been road tested, I will start posting more photos and some tutorials of how I made them.

6 Feet of Storage in 10 1/2 Inches

Okay, there is now about 11 inches between the arm of the couch and the bed. This is a major improvement, the dinette used to be flush against the edge of the bed which meant all four corners of the mattress had walls on them. It was so horrible to make up that bed!

I designed a shelf that is 10 and a half inches wide, 24 inches deep and the height of a dining table.

I Can See Clearly Now! - Camper Remodel

Wow, how time flies!

The pups have all gone to their forever homes and are happily ever aftering.

You may know that I love to camp. We have a small (tiny) camper - a 2008 Fun Finder 189FBR by Cruiser RV that we bought new and have not used much at all. We probably use it a total of about 5 nights a year. Well, I am determined to change this!
