So , here we go , off on a little trip . Yesterday we moved from camp Verde AZ to Lake Pleasant , about 35 miles north of phoenix . Who knew it was so awesome so close to the city . Just moving closed to phoenix as we have a service appt. next Monday to go over the bus at AAABus in phoenix
Hanging in Williams , still waiting on dentures , seems they are so backlogged due to labor shortages . Who wants to go back to work ?
Working on the homestead here in Williams , kinda “chomping at the bit” to get traveling . I’m pretty sure most stuff has been worked out , so 4th of July we head to Colorado to soak in some hot springs
Moved back down to the desert outside Sedona , waiting for the dental work , in the meantime I got a major electric issue figured out with the help of a friend . I found that the wire from batteries to inverter was not large enough, increased to #2awg and I can run everything , space heater included .
It is nice to have had all the issues early on happen close to home , where it feels safe , we know people , and help is around the corner
Well , after two weeks in an rv park , we headed for the woods . Just came back from 2 weeks up by stoneman lake .thankfully we were close to help . We had the water line blow out on the on demand hot water heater . Learned that the first three feet coming out should be copper , not pex. Lesson learned . And we found that unless we pay attention , 100 gal of water can disappear quickly .
The solar is working awesome and I have some experiments to do with increasing wire size to inverter so maybe it will actually run something more than a water pic.
All in all fun is being had , learning the new ways of life , coming to really appreciate hot water and a shower . Been going woodsman for the past three weeks cause it was a little chilly up the hill , now we are down in some warmer weather and can lather up
So , we have been field testing everything in an rv park for the last two weeks , while also waiting on so,e dental work ….. had to do some plumbing repairs , replace the propane regulator , practice emptying composting toilet , while Sheron has been getting used to the galley .
Today we head out to field test in the woods , headed to a spot called stoneman lake , up around 5000 ft where it will be a little cooler
Here is a pic of galley
The sh.. is moving now , lots going on , see for yourself
So we got the bus home on the 14of September, and yesterday , the 23, got the last piece of flooring in . Next we start on windows
well, as soon as the decision was made , it happened . we posted studio for sale and within 24 hrs it was sold . a little sad but it is awesome to start out with some extra funding for the bus and the build
Heading to phoenix on monday , i think they have the one we want
