Dragon Slayer

Well... maybe that's Would be Dragon Slayer. (Pepper) First picture is of the bad girl following me out to take a picture of the planned heading of Dale's RV. Second picture is of the planned heading and cleared area for it.
Notice the Pass that the arrow is pointing to. Supposedly from what I've been told is that the directions of the most fierce winds are from North or South or South to North. (Although I've seen some pretty fierce winds coming from all directions). However, its said that some times wind coming from north to south will be going through that Pass and some times it will reverse and be even higher coming back. At any rate most people down here say it is best for RVs to be facing North or South, but not all are parked that way. I guess its sort of a crap shoot...  BTW the arrow is actually facing South south west. The sharp pointed peak almost hidden by the top left corner of the It'll Du is south. Bigfoot, Littlefoot and Underfoot's cabin can be seen more or less where the arrow is pointing.



Update
Got tired of sitting in the coolest? place in the dungeon (see below bucket in the door) When I went to the legion for ice someone had dropped off a bunch of JUNK like they do at various places in this area (supposedly to help people out) in this case it was all junk. Anyway one piece of junk was the pot in the second picture. It was too screwed up to use for cooking, but I figured it might make a water bowl for Pepper so got it. I don't think she will dump it and take off with it like she did the plastic ones before I sacrificed one of my parts buckets for her a water bowl. Now I was able to reclaim my parts bucket for my parts. I started loading the bucket back up with parts, but it was getting hot out in the sun so I'll finish that in the morning.
Also got some WD40 after the rat trap because something was either eating the bate without setting it off or setting it off and not getting caught.

  2. Will you tie the RV down like they do mobil homes in high wind areas? Or do you like to be rocked to sleep (grin).

    Hope to get back you way as soon as I can.

    Hang in there,

  3. Yes frann, she is growing and eating like a horse. If that keeps up she better get a lot better at catching the lizards because she will need the supplemental food that I can't afford.

  4. Dizzy-Dick, Plans are to tie it down and under pin it to as I can afford it. I doubt that even tying it down will stop all the rocking and polling. Should help some though.

  5. Yep, she won’t chew up that bucket of water. I’ll also have to add there is something good to say about having parts buckets. At least you know which bucket to grab for the things you know you need.

    You sure got that trailer spot looking ready. I believe it will be the cat’s meow for sure in your new crib. Bless ya Dale for helping you UNK.

    Sure looks like you have set some fence post there behind pepper in the first photo. Are you going to try and keep them mule deer in? Ya, I been reading. We’ve been keeping busy over to the new place quite a bit so have not had time to drop a line.

    I thought I had squirrels in the attic and had a live trap up there. I kept losing my bate and the little traps were tripped and the bate was gone on them too. So one day sitting on the back porch I saw a big rat running down the fence. I went to Wally Mart and got me one of them big traps and set it out by the fence. Oh, oh, caught me a Black Bird. Opps, reset it in a cave made out of bricks -- no photo but no more rat either. Sure was thinking of ya. Take care, we’re watchin.

  6. Tigger, been watching your blog off and on, but you haven't added anything. Been intending to email you, but things keep getting in the way. As for the rats I think any way you can get them is a good way.

  9. Andy, that was two easy shots since she followed me out there so I didn't have to hunt her down to take her picture.

    Oh yeah Tigger. Those aren't fence posts, just what I charge the solar lights on like I did in the back yard in Plano.

  14. Nice to know the days are going to get shorter rather than longer and maybe a little less HEAT? Well maybe in another couple of months? :(

  15. Oh... and maybe I did do something pagan? I ushered a red racer off the road in front of the dungeon rather than run over it. Looked to be about a 6 footer.
