    No longer full-time, We got our house!

    Well it has been almost 2.5 years since we hit the road in our Landmark, but that road trip is now over. Yesterday at 4:00pm we got the key to our house here in Laramie. We spent the last few hours of daylight moving a trailer load of stuff my parents brought up from Colorado and then hauled the...

    2010 Landmark Augusta and 2006 F-450 Hauler

    After enjoying full-timing for over two years, we are now going to be in one place for about 5 years and the climate will make it hard to live in the Landmark through the winter. We want to buy a small house with a yard for our dogs, and must sell the trailer and truck to make it all work. We...

    Just moved to Laramie

    We are now officially in Laramie, WY. We hated to leave Gig Harbor, WA, but in the end it will cost so much less for me to get another degree here in WY than in WA. We stayed in Heyburn, ID one night and stayed next to a Big Country that was skirted. We did not get a chance to make contact with...

    Propane pick-up hose leaking.

    I noticed the last time I re-filled the ODS tank I could smell propane, after turning the tank on. I tested the area with soapy water and found out the short hose from the tank to the regulator was leaking were the fitting is crimped onto the hose. It would go away depending on how I wiggled the...

    Strobing light, because of ceiling fan.

    I have been meaning to post this for a while, but we can not use one of our living room light fixtures because it is mounted above the blades of the fan, and that creates a VERY unpleasant strobing effect in the trailer. If the placement was moved several inches outside the reach of the fan...

    Condensation Issues.

    Last week my DW noticed that the sheets were damp where they touch the walls. We had a bit of Mildew starting on the walls too (I scrubbed it all off). We thought it could have been a leak from outside, but we have more water inside today and it has not rained since I last dried everything. I...

    Anyone else into digital photography?

    My wife and I love to take lots of pictures as we travel about and are starting to learn more and more about digital photography. We have been using a Nikon Coolpix 8800 VR and have thousands of great pictures from it, but for a late Christmas present we decided to treat ourselves to a new...

    Recently our system quit playing DVDs and CDs. I have tried cleaning it and even cleaned the lens. Still nothing, CDs will spin up and try to load, but will either give "Disc Err," "No Disc" or Eject the CD without pushing the eject button. DVDs will not even spin up to speed, they just will...

    Replaced the love seat with a real couch

    Just got the new couch in-place yesterday. It is just over 8' long and about 4' deep. It will have to be rotated onto its back to travel, but it is SO nice to be able to stretch out and cuddle together with the DW. The couch is from IKEA, so it was easy to fit through the door and get it inside.

    Might need to rename it the Land-Ark...

    If it keeps raining here like it has for the past few days we might be testing if the Landmark can float. The ground is so saturated that water is running under the entire length of the trailer. We received about 1.5" yesterday and it is raining harder today.

    Odd problem with water dispenser.

    For a while now, about half the times we go to get water from the dispenser, we get nothing. The light comes on but no water flows. If we open the kitchen faucet for a moment, and go back to the water dispenser, it works just fine. I have installed a residential pressure regulator, but could...

    Sagging tank and up-hill drain pipe.

    With the underbelly off and tank full the grey #1 tank has to drain up hill about 4" to reach the sewer pipe. the bottom of the tank is also ~4-5" below the frame rails. I am thinking that I can bolt some steel cross-members under the tank to keep the bottom of the tank flat and try to get...

    Fixed the Ice Maker supply line for good.

    After fixing the ice maker line a few times, and returning to find more leaks, I decided to replace and upgrade the entire system. I bought a 10' and a 1' PVC supply line, a PEX street elbow and a new brass 1/4 valve. I removed the factory ice maker supply line and shut off valve starting at...
