Camper #2 one year later report

After a year of using this camper this is a report on what happened so far.
As mentioned in the past our trailer hitch part of the frame nearly broke off in
Cortez Co. but lucky for me I noticed it. Drove it down to Farmington NM
Elks lodge to do repairs. Everything worked out well and we were back
on the road in about 4 days.

Camping Hack #1 for 2018
Ryobi tools, I know they cost money but wait, they make life easier!
These tools all use one 18 volt battery that charges fast and last long.
Plus in the jungle you can power a Bluetooth radio boom box, fan,
Vacuum and use it to charge your phone!

Frugal Geocaching fun.
Jenny’s article on is a great informational piece to read.
Please give it a read and enjoy the fun.  Geocaching by Jenny

LED light and Bed Bath & Beyond.
I found myself in place I didn’t belong and sure enough I
ended up buying something!

I know what your thinking, frugal way to use paper towels!

To be true to being frugal even paper towels count.
If you waste paper you’re simply not frugal.

We bought a Chevy Sonic 2016 recently.

I was looking for the nice little car that gets good gas mileage.
To my surprise the little car got 40 mpg on the highway!!
Plus the air-conditioner worked great and the radio is wonderful.

We are back in Florida and getting ready
to start building a new trailer.

We found a lot of FREE CAMPSITES.
I’ll keep everyone apprised of where and when if you feel inspired join us.

Once I get back it is building time for the next mini camper.
The plan is to use the frame of the first camper I built and make a better camper.
I did everything wrong with the first camper so the plan is to rebuild it using
fiber glass. Hopefully I can shave a few pound of the frame.

Winter Time in Florida!
We have been going up to Village Pines for the weekends and hanging out with friends.
This is the camper with our Christmas lights.

It has been a pretty cold winter in Florida but now in Feb. it’s starting to warm up.
We went to a drum circle at Fort Island Beach near Crystal River FL.
What a wonderful time we all had and Karen found a drum to beat on!

Beth’s little paradise in Village Pines

For those who know me well I’m not a big dog lover. I don’t hate dogs but I don’t want
one either. Karen wants a dog in the worst way. Beth’s dog Regalo is a great dog.
I don’t know what got into him be this happened!

Next Big Trip!
We are starting to plan our next trip in July and August of 2018.
Our friend Larry from Fort Worth TX named it “The Rim Run”, I like that.
The plan is to head north to Wisconsin then across to Washington State.
Then south to northern California and back east. That should be another great trip.
If you are interested in coming along email me.

Mini Camper #2  West bound trip.
We finally got started on our western US trip in late March 2017.
We stopped in San Antonio TX for 3 weeks and worked on my sons fence.
I decided to limit our trip to; New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. By limiting out travel we could get this trip done in about three months.
The pictures from our west trip can be seen using the link above; “Mini Camper 2 West Trip”.

This is a picture from the Elks Lodge in Rapid City SD.
Everyone came by wondering if we lived in the little trailer!
Our blog page above is a week to week blog of our trip west.

and Google Album Mini Camper 2 West Trip.

First trip with the new camper 2 was to Green Swamp FL, Hampton Track and it was FREE!

Our second trip with the new camper was to Koreshan State Park in Estero Florida, near Bonita Springs.
