The very cold winter has turned into a cold spring but, Georgia and I made our first RV trip of the year last Friday. It was opening weekend at Fox Hill RV Park in Baraboo, Wisconsin. We always enjoy the Wisconsin Dells area, and we have been to Fox Hill before, so we took advantage […]

More Trailer Mods

I did a couple more complicated modifications to the Kodiak this past weekend. These were not difficult but they weren’t just adds on either. Both took a little work to install.

It is very peaceful and laid-back out there. If you go to Oshkosh, you should spend some time at the Seaplane […]

The trailer was ready to go by the night of the 3rd. Refrigerator cold, food and clothes loaded and truck fueled. We planned to get up and get an early start to Wisconsin Dells on the morning of July 4th. So much for plans. We woke up that morning to the sump pump battery alarm […]

The long Memorial Day weekend gave us the opportunity to take the travel trailer on a road trip. I added a vacation day on Tuesday to make it an even longer weekend. We hitched up on Saturday and towed to Elkhart, Indiana, in Amish country. The rural areas here are dotted with Amish farms and, […]
