Summer Home

In getting self contained on 24/04/2017 at 16:33

Well I’m finalizing plans to pull the boat and put it on the hard for the hot southern summer. I’m heading back to Springhill for the summer. Volunteering is a great way to live on the cheap. Especially if you find those good locations. Last year was a tent ⛺️ but this year I built a summer home in the back of the Ford 1996 exploder I mean explorer.

The requirements were I had to be able to build it with the tools I have on the boat and it had to less than 100 dollars 💵.

While I was working this Sandhill Crane visited me a few times to observe. When they Are within a few feet of you and call out they have this creepy Jurassic Park sound. It is very loud and right out of the movie soundtrack.

I used pvc pipe and toilet flanges. The engineering came in with the straps that hold it down. Light weight not over built. I yanked out the rear seats for more storage. I’m good to go.

George is happy 😊 I’m happy 🤓.
