Writings and Postings and Such

Rolling Stone Gathers no AntsMonday August 25, 2014
The guts of the aquahotIf you've been following along, you've probably noticed the conspicuous absence of posts all summer long (despite the visual overhaul which did take quite some time  (I still hate it btw)).  The difference between now and before is that my client load has come on pretty heavily and I've been quite busy all summer with projects.  I could probably update the site...

Compounding TasksMonday July 7, 2014
Chilling in ParadiseHave you ever had an unfinished task just sitting there mocking you?  Every time you went back to revisit that task you realized it's grown bigger and bigger.  So you put it off longer and longer.  Posting a blog entry has become that task for me.  We're alive, we've been living, and things are wild and awesome.  I'm getting work and we're hanging with...

Blogging's Back BurnerSunday May 4, 2014
One in a Lifetime ShotWe've been on the move for a few days now. First we visited Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, then we went to Ashburn, GA, then Atlanta to see the Vintage Computer Festival 2.0 (not that SO had any interest in that) and now we're at Walmart again.  I had visions of getting the travel cam running and this and that but I never did. See I'm driving a brand new to me 42'... Read More...
Some DowntimeMonday April 21, 2014
What it saidAs I wrap up some $ work I've been working on, I will now have time to tackle some less important (not $ earning) things.  Not that this isn't a nailbiting time as it always is when a client beats up your work and decides whether or not to give you that final payment ;)  We're FINALLY taking off from Florida in a week so I have to wrap it up here.  My hit list...

Moving on From Siesta KeyTuesday April 15, 2014
Siesta Key Sarasota SunsetIt's been a while so I figured I would post an update.  Things have been a bit uninteresting as of late.  Highlights include replacing the latching relay that controls our front water pump motor.  The one Foretravel included is a solid state job which is supposed to handle like 2 amps.  The pump is 7.5 amps so it's no surprise they go.  I'm surprised...

Mo Cars, Mo ProblemsSunday April 6, 2014
Saying goodbye to BeastWe've just recently passed our 1 year anniversary of fulltiming but our past life in a stick house still constantly nips at our heels in the form of insurance bills, storage unit fees and other bits.  We have just finally disposed of one of our problems, my 2002 BMW 540i.  We are car enthusiasts and this is a *special* car.  It has a ride that is soft enough to...

Skinny ButtMy significant other is quite the afficionado of molded fiberglass trailers.  In fact before we got the Foretravel we looked at the 25' Bigfoot trailer.  Now we got the opportunity to see a brand spankin new Oliver IIS.  Wow, it's the first trailer I have ever liked.  To me everything always seemed like a giant compromise the but the Oliver knows what it is...

Layer from rear to frontBecause an RV just can't do very much with diamonds.  There is no single thing that can damage an RV more quickly and completely (except maybe a car accident or fire) than water.  When we bought the Winnebago we bought it knowing that it had water damage.  We made a calculated risk and it paid out alright but we always worried a bit about the side wall...

Foretravel U320 Condenser FanWednesday March 19, 2014
A New Condenser FanBuying a used older motorhome is not for the faint of heart.  Things will break and more things will break.  Right around the 10 year mark things really start to go wrong and the previous owner of our motorhome felt that for sure.  Because I don't have any certainty as far as when things were repaired I decided to do basically all of the routine maintenance at...

%$#& Fuel Water Separator!Friday March 14, 2014
Beaten and Bruised But Finally LooseToday we tried an experiment.  We tried to make a video...  And we figured out that we are not the Wynns...  We will never be YouTube stars.  I can't stop cursing long enough to make a video that isn't all bleeps.  Oh well.  Of course I should mention that today probably wasn't a fair shake due to the misery that I subjected myself to.  You...
