Time to start traveling again!

Drug the camper out of storage to start working for summer. I found that our long hard winter had cracked the toilet valve in here, so I had to plug the hose. and I found a can of Coke that we had forgot about when we cleaned out the trailer for the winter. Whoops. Either way hitch up and started the 14 hour drive to Monticello, MN.

The end of 2013

Well as 2013 draws to an end and I reflect on some things, I realize that this web site is probably a frivolous waste of resources do to the fact that I never update it anymore and I doubt anyone reads it anymore anyhow. Sooo.. That being said, I will let this domain expire and cease the site unless some one expresses interest in taking it over.

Have a safe and happy 2014.

Helping a friend with his roof

My good friends roof started leaking badly right about the same time his furnace quit. Heat was more important then roof right now and being short on money we decided to put a tarp up to temporarily stop the rain and snow. I have to admit that this high up step roof actually has me slightly terrified. Hopefully tomorrow we can finish it.

Putting up some food

So now that we are parked for a while we decided to put up some food for the winter. We got some free apples (just a few) and some chicks (they will be grown by snow fall).

We are still in the camper and haven't heard a word about another project. I have been picking up odd jobs here and there to pay the bills. PTL.

Advertise with us, or sponsor us!

We did 70k miles in one year to 27 different states. The time has come for us to upgrade to a new vehicle and we are looking for advertisers/sponsors who might want their business exposed to the whole country. We can put advertising on the new truck and the trailer. Use the contact form for more details. You would also be featured on our website that has been doing pretty well. 🙂

Made it to Baltimore

Safe and sound. Not to bad.

Researching Memberships

While researching Science Center memberships, I came across this ... http://www.boonshoftmuseum.org/membership/levels-and-benefits

this place located near Dayton, Oh has memberships starting at $100 and they have reciprocity with the AZA and ASTC so that does not seem like a bad deal at all since I paid 75$ for the membership to the Louisville Zoo, for the AZA.

So Check it out ... or if you have a better deal please let me know! I am considering this as part of my kids Christmas presents. I need to decide quickly though so it makes it to my permanent address while I am there.

A few projects

I have been working on a few projects.  Part of what I do is design web sites.  So I have created a new one http://hasbeenthere.com This is a forum for travelers to share stories and ideas.  You can also sign up to get your own blog as hasbeenthere.com

Sign up today and help us build our new site.

I also built one for AB Deigns.  Check out http://abdesigns.biz

Contact me if you want or need a site of your own built.

Added a new favicon

Yay.  Dressed up the site a bit with a new favicon.  I had to clear my browser cache to get it to show up for me, but it's cool.

I think I fixed it.

I think I got it all back up and working again. Bunch of pix are still missing. Going to have to work on that later.
