NOW...where do we put this thing ?? !!

Swell, we got an RV...finally. Even went on a trip with it....but now it's sitting in front of our house looking for a home. I know, let's put it next to our house in the side yard. After all, that's what that area was designed for.

Wait, there seems to be a couple of obstacles in the two tall birch trees, uneven ground, a fence and a lawn. Now what? Well, I got out there with an axe, then a hatchet. That must've looked a mini-Paul Bunyan.Fortunately, my neighbor across the street came across with his chain saw and, together, we cut them down.
These are the two remaining trees. We cut down two the same size
This is the After photo...Kim and I spent the next two days chopping all of this up.
...about one quarter of the branches we took to the local dump.
One tree trunk at the top. The other at the bottom.
...the second tree trunk....trying to cut this down to ground level was not easy.

So, after cutting down the trees, chopping up all the branches what's next?.

Ah, that fence and uneven ground.
Done with the fence...about 12-feet wide.

We had 1 and 3/4 yard of gravel dumped.
Time for a beer while washing down the dusty gravel.
Ready for the RV now.
 This side yard is about 12-feet wide. Take away the PGE meter next to the house and our rain gutters it becomes about 11 feet. Our RV is 8-feet 2-inches wide....kind of a tight fit. Well, here goes....time to back it in.

We were going to sell ticket to the neighbors to watch, but most had gone to work already.
back, back , to the left !
Watch out for the house !
Kim was on our walkie-talkie giving me directions and we got it in the first time.....good teamwork.

boy do I look relieved
Like ET said..."Hoooooome"

It's quite a tight fit, but we can get in and out just fine to start filling up all the inside spaces.

Becuase the winter is coming on, our trips coming up will probably be down south to Death Valley, Mojave Desert...places like that.

Thanks for blog will show our new gate.
