Going retro!

In our last episode, Connie was living with me while hunting for a RV of her own and had made an offer on an older man's trailer. What a cliffhanger!

This week's episode has Connie having bought, remodeled and currently living in her very own RV. It's a 1972 Winnebago Brave, retro before retro was cool.

These pics are all pre-improvement. She now has wood laminate flooring, new fridge, new toilet, and the couch is now a bed. She's loving it and I'm loving that she's loving it, and loving that I have my Bliss all to myself again.

In MY news, I've scored a cushy camphost position up at Storrie Lake State Park and will head that way as soon as I have some work done on Bliss. I have a lot of play in my steering wheel, and have since I bought her. A mechanic friend who adjusted my timing noticed the play and looked at the steering components and declared a new drag link is in order. The driver side connection is all loosey goosey and can't be tightened. I was thinking 'Heck, it's been this way forever. Whatever' until he said, "When it goes, you'll lose all steering" so I'll have it replaced. Safety. Whatever.

I had some residual water line issues from Bliss' time in wintry Wisconsin. A few trips to the hardware store, some impressive body contortions (who needs yoga when you own an RV) and voilá! Water comes from the taps again. Such decadence, life just keeps on getting better and better!
