specta probably has higher electric bills, heating bills, maintenance expenses and pays more in taxes.
Feel better now [emoticon]


If he can swing all that and still afford to go camping and whatnot, even more jealous! Life goals. . .

Thanks Supercharged.

I just get to use the shop, its not mine.
The only things inside there is my truck/camper and the blue ATV.

The shop is next to me. I'm just pretty fortunate to get to use it. [emoticon]

This is where my truck and camper normally sit. I do get to keep my ATV in the shop year round.

Most years we head south from Alaska in November to play "snowbird" and head back in March. I winterize the camper when it starts to freeze up here.....which was last month. I put a gallon of windshield washer fluid in the gray and black tanks so we can use them on the way south. Keep enough water in jugs to use on the way down. Usually coming back in March it doesn't get much below zero so I don't have to worry till I get home.

Since we do this most every year I don't take many pictures, but I did take a few in '17 on the way home.

I am doing the same preparations. I moved stuff out of the shop so I could fit my truck and camper in there. I think my camper will stay on the truck this winter so I have room to park my Polaris Ranger in front of the truck.

I'll be using my camper for a while.

I'd love to take it off, I do miss driving my truck.
