I'm Seeing Red...

Made a few little "red" purchases and I think it's going to work!  Nothing like the American and Texas flag to get things started...There's a few other modifications we are working adding a screen to the front grill!  It was wide open between the bars where bugs or rocks could hit the front of the radiator and dent it all up!  Why did Forest River build it that way?  Oh well, hubby bought some thick metal screening and fixed it.
I know, I know!  I needed to take a shot of the front grill so you could see it...Going out now to do that!

See what I mean about the wide open bars?  Hubby drilled holes in the bars and used tie downs and screws to hold them in place...They aren't going Anywhere!  And yes, he forgot to spray paint the green to black but when you stand in front of the coack, you just can't tell!  
Well, guess that's it for now.  The tow kit and other "boy toys" have all come in and are laying on the floor of hubby's office.  We have an appointment for Oct 7th to get it added to our car.

Well, We Did It!

It's a 2016 Forest River FR3 30DS Motor home....We're going to try traveling again.  The crew consist of Hubby, Myself and Buddy and Libby...our two furbabies.   Several years ago we owned but sold our Mobil Scout 5th Wheel simply because we rarely got the chance to use it.  There's not much these days holding us back...we still have a plumbing company to run and my Granddaughter, Samantha will still be living here with us after Crystal, Will and Tim move to Magnolia in November or December.  She has her name on a list for an apartment that will be ready by the end of November.  When we go to visit the kids in Magnolia we can stay in the RV park close by their house.  Or maybe there will be a chili cook off somewhere we want to go see...or whatever. 
 Also planning a trip to Angel Fire, New Mexico to visit with friends then off to Carlsbad Caverns then home.  We've been watching "Chris and G Travels" on You Tube and have been thinking about Alaska...who knows.   They're young but it's fun to follow along on their travels.
  It's got a good floor plan, enough for Hubby and I.  Sleeps eight...big shower...I think it'll work.  Anyway, it's very...brown, as you can see.  That's the way they are dressing them up these days...browns.  SO, I've started accenting things in red.  I'll shoot some pictures after I'm done.  Oh, and see the FR3 lettering under the TV that sits over the sink?  There's a light switch just for it!  Flip the switch and it lights up blue...that's all it does...Hahaaa...omg...  It's been a busy month...hiring for Crystal's position...buying the
So...Here's to the Hubby's and my new adventures...
