Well I located a mini fridge for the minibago. A whopping $60.00 and it is a fridge with a separate top freezer just a bit smaller than an apartment sized unit. Getting excited to get started on the truck. I got an offer on the still under construction Depot as it sets. If I get what I asked it's gone and the 8 grand will be used to spring board into the truck.

Weekend came and went. Spent the entire 4 days fencing the south line for the land lady. I am far too old for building fence but we got it done with the help of a couple friends. We even had the first cook out of the season along with a bon fire.

The Depot received a present. As I was taking my helper back to Lafayette we went thru a tiny hamlet where the week before they were having a clear out sale of a big old school building. Frank remembered I wanted an arrival departure board for the depot and had me stop. They were there shuffling stuff out and when we asked about a chalk board they had a small 3 x 4 section of the heavy as hell old slate blackboard. It was marked $100.00 we got it for $10.00. I think they just want stuff gone.

Here is the idea......Image

Bob, I found a way around the whole "you need a physical address" thing. This is just one company that does this BUT forming an LLC in Montana allows you to be a resident of Montana and use your registered agent as a physical address. Bonus is your "RV" is more than 11 years old so Montana issues permanent plates for like $250.

Many Van dwellers and nomads use Montana, South Dakota and Florida mail drop services as well. This can help you bypass all the local stupidity.

Even those souls that are found must occasionally become lost to appreciate what they have.

Well the security gate showed up today ! It has been in fabrication for 7-8 weeks ( I finally found someone that works almost as slow as myself) :rofl2:

It needs paint and I will get a picture of it once it is pretty !

Looking for snow this weekend but I may get brave and install it !

I have the left over potty from the camper that was made into the caboose. I think I may have gotten a good idea to replace the drivers seat in the fliver. What do you think.
