I was 36 when I bought our first second home.  Lake house, boat, sea doo, etc.  Then kids came along and it was just too much to keep up with with small kids.  Held our powder until I was 46 and we bought the second second home when the kids were 10 and 8.

Most people buy a second home and then 5 years later don’t use it as much and wind up selling it. Wait until you have the chance to buy exactly what you want.  Do it once.

Bumper looks great, like to see the winch idea you have.

On the isolated battery, why not use a relay that works that energizes when the engine is running? Nothing to forget to switch on/off and maybe a little led showing it is charging?
Actually all he needs is a battery isolator.  It’s automatic.  Will allow it to charge but not drain the primary. Essentially it’s just a big diode

Looking good Shawn.

MDF is heavy but it makes good closet shelving if you want to build yourself. Elfa is not bad. I have some of their stuff.

Milled, you knuckleheads

All the propane connections checked out and the tankless heater works great and the pool heater still works so I didn’t screw that up when I replaced the lines.

Just cleaning and putting tools away now.

Ok boys. Getting. Closer. Hope to have hot water tonight. Pressure testing the underground poly propane piping.

Wired the electrical to the tankless water heater. Installed shelves in the closet and wife is mopping cleaning.

I ordered the shower enclosure and wife ordered mattresses and box springs.

Still waiting on wood to be milked for the doors.

Don. Happy birthday Soldier!

I’m grateful to the Lord for you. You have given us a place to commiserate with like minded people. These men can swallow the anger at today’s Godless world and still keep doing the right things. But you, sir, have given us a place of respite from the everyday where instead of surviving, we are thriving because we gain sustenance from each other.

I’m lifting you up to Him and may He keep and preserve you in His will for years to come.

Bob, sorry to hear about the bumper.  I guess the silver lining is its a remove and replace piece, no bodywork to speak of.

And Dave, I think the answer depends on the amount of wood exposed and the type of house.  I like the natural but too much of it is tough to take.  Probably the upper right for a happy medium.

Good for you Tex. Being in a few disaster areas like that I can attest to the the fact that drinking water is key. I’m a little bummed you decided to keep that truck but glad to see you’re putting it to good use.

I’ll never be able to figure out what all that nonsense with the squatting is. I’ve joked several times I’m gonna start the slant life fad and just lift one side of the truck.

Driving through Alto Texas was unreal.  There was about 150 yard wide swath of destruction that was hard to describe.  I'll try to upload the video I took to Youtube and post the link.

In driving the path of destrution, it became clear that the tornado was just starting to form when it hit our place and then picked up steam 5 miles away and then maxed out in Alto about 8 miles away.

I am grateful to the Lord that we were spared, and i hope that I would still have faith to praise him if I was wiped out and my family taken from me, like Job.

Dave, rub does not penetrate mean.  Salt does.

If you want to try something to get it to penetrate, makes simple brine and brine it for about 12 hours (more would make it a bit salty perhaps).  Then slap your rub on and go once you get it out and rinse it.

You can also make a simple mop sauce with beer, oil, some spices and paprika.  Mop it every hour.

Thanks JR

I was outside working in the rain and i heard this sound. Wasn’t sure what it was but the wind and trees started bending and The Sound,got louder and louder.  Boogied into the house and rounded the family up and into the closet.  I opened windows to equalize pressure and then prayed.

Looks neat Dave. Power still out here. Running gen set. It’s about 65 degrees so no need for ac but I now know my 5000 watt gen set will run the ac lights and fridge in the casita. We will reproach there in power 0utages from now on. Plus with the propane on demand water heater we’ll be in good shape until I run out of fuel

Ahh, got it.  Surprised they still let you have it.

Dodged a tornado this morning.  Was trenching and repairing a sprinkler line from the septic when I heard it coming.  We got a bit of it but down the road was much worse.

Snapped some big limbs out of some trees and one landed on the wifes van and dented the front fender and broke the windshield.  A big one fell where I normally park the LB7 but I had parked on the side of the shop so it was spared.  Running on backup power now.  Fridge, internet and some lights and microwave.  Amazing how fast kids freak out when the internet is down.

First time I’ve ever been out side when one was coming and it has a sound all its own for sure.

Got the poly gas tubing and connectors and another secondary regulator. Trying to lineup the mini trencher to rent and get the tankless water heater up and running this weekend. Picked out a frameless glass bypass enclosure. Just have to double check the opening is square since there is no adjustment.

Then hope to pick up my lumber order from the sawmil to get started on the cabinets.

Wife is looking for 5 mattresses and misc furnishing

I can smell the finish line
