One thing about the bitter, cold weather that I like is, you don’t have to feel guilty about staying inside and watching TV. When it's nice outside I don’t really feel “guilty” about staying in but I just feel like I should be outside doing something. But that’s just me.
I’m kinda glad it's COLD lately because I wanted to watch a bunch of FOOTBALL on TV anyway and that’s just what we did! I’ve watched so many Bowl games I can’t remember them all. Boy, they have a Football Bowl for everybody, don’t they? As John so perfectly describes in his Blog: “Nobody Knows YOUR In It But Your MAMA” Bowls.
I did stick my head outside long enough New Years Eve to snap this picture from our driveway North up towards Yarnell Hill.
We did have to run into town to mail a large PressurePro System to a gentleman in Iowa so I took a picture of the mountains to our East. They had a pretty good snow over there in the high country. You can see how far out in the desert we are out here at North Ranch. That area in the foreground is where we ride our ATV 4 wheelers. It's all BLM land....which means it belongs to US......all of US!!
I’ve also been seriously looking for what I need to set the new truck up for towing behind the Motorhome. That’s the worst thing about getting a different Toad. You have to go through all that rigmarole again. Finding the proper Baseplate and installing it along with the proper wiring and break away switches. Then it has to have a braking system. It's an ordeal and usually an expensive one! I’m not one that can just take my vehicle in to someone, hand them the keys and tell them to do it while I go off and shop or eat or something. No, not me. I have to get involved and do as much as I can myself. Believe me...I want to know it's done correctly! The FIRST time! "But," (again,borrowing a phrase from someone VERY close to me) "That's just me”! Sorry Rollie.:-) I love ya man!
Really, it's amazing what you can accomplish from your recliner while you're watching football games. I’ve already got the Baseplate. I found it in Florida and 3 days later it was in my shop. I found the wiring kit and diodes in Iowa...they will ship tomorrow. I found an SMI Air Force One tow brake system in Montana. It will also ship tomorrow. So I’m about set. By the time it warms back up, I’ll have it and can go to work installing.
Hope you are all having as much fun as I am!
