Search & destroy mission on the spiders & other bugs was completed tonight with a can of Eliminator. My son & I opened up all the compartments & other hiding places.

I can report 3 confirmed kills. If additional strafing missions are required we'll do that when we get home.

Good work. I tell you, those things have such a look of evil it's amazing. I know nature is beautiful in all forms (conceptually anyway) and there's nothing inherantly evil in the bug, but I get chills when I see them in basements etc.

Just this morning I was in my garage and realized a couple of enterprising youngs birds of some sort built a nest amongst my cans of WD40 etc., I started to remove it but discovered a couple of little beaks asking me for worms so I'll let them stay until fall. But then I'm standing outside and see a Raven acking a little funny, hopping around a few branches in a pine tree, and a couple of Robins flying around a bit. Just when I realized what might be happening, the Raven pops his head up with a bright blue robin egg in his beak. You win some and you lose some I guess....and nature keeps marching on.

Nice photos - and like everyone else here on the best part of rv.net, we expect to see some more photos along the way. Thanks!

Nope. Spiders survive winter just fine. My first year in Colorado was the coldest on record and that spring they sprung just like every year since.

I might of missed this but what size is your camper? A 2500 or 3000? Great looking setup and the camping trip looked awesome also. Nice job!
