Cabinets

Day 50

Getting Squared Away


8am - Yesterday evening at The Home Depot, we bought lumber to replace the corners of the cabinet drawers. The old corners got messed up over several times being assembled and disassembled.

In a prior Blog post, we wrote to you that the cabinet drawers were to be rebuilt while we were on-the-road with Tránsito. We have to do that rebuilding soon. Because Tránsito's storage is a jumbled mess. We need those cabinets to be in working in order to have a place to put stuff as things are sorted out.

1pm - About Little Honda
Did you read our Blog post from 7pm, yesterday?

Here is what that post said:
"Little Honda went home this evening with a very nice guy. He's the manager of a video/TV store in the City of Salem.

If all works out as we believe that it might, Little Honda shall live with this guy forever more!" ♥️

This morning, that guy bought Little Honda!

Do you think that it is a bit weird that I should feel nostalgic about Little Honda going away?



2pm - Faces in my Blog
Some Readers may not know the stories behind the faces located at the top right of my Blog.

David Blog - Read Dave-
This is a Blog written by my eldest Son. David died in 2010. It was a tragedy. He died by his own hand! I miss him sooooo much!

Listen to: Pete Olson Music-
Pete is a very dear friend of mine. Pete and his wife Frederika live at Jojoba Hills Escapee RV Park. I placed this link on my Blog to Pete's music website to hopefully help Pete in his musician/composer career.

I will be moving to Jojoba when I arrive at the top of the waiting list! BTW. I just phoned Jojoba and learned that I am now lucky #13 on the wait list. I started at #34 in September, 2016.

5pm - A nice park
We went searching for a park. A nice one with shade trees. And a place for The Scampy Team to camp under those trees.

We went to three parks. None of them filled the bill! There was no place for The Scampy Team to park in any of them!

As we were leaving the third park [Riverfront Park], we spotted some trees. These trees were NOT in a park. But they were shade trees. Lucky, huh?

We made an Evening Camp, then looked around. The police department is here! Wow! Maybe we are safe with those guys close-by.

 It is now 10 PM. Something happened to my Mac computer.  The Mac does not see my iPhone anymore. I called cricket support  and they couldn't help.

  I making this post directly from my iPhone.   That is why this 10pm Blog post has no formatting as I usually do. My plan is to find an open Wi-Fi and  attempt to connect to that Wi-Fi with my Mac.

  My thinking is if I can connect to a Wi-Fi with my Mac then the problem must be with the hotspot. Skyline Ford has an open hotspot. I'm heading to Skyline.

  It's a real bummer for me when I can't go online to make my blog posts!!!

11pm - Skyline Ford
I'm now at Skyline Ford in Salem. My Mac went on to Skyline's WiFi. No problem.

This indicates to me that the Mac's ability to connect to WiFi is working. It also indicates to me that something is not working correctly with iPhone's Personal Hotspot.

I buy that Personal Hotspot from Cricket, my internet service provider. Cricket support is closed now. So, I'll phone them in the morning.

  1. Building cabinets seems like a lot of work. What about buying pre made storage bins or wood medicine cabinets you can just anchor to Transito. Less time and work?

    1. Hi Point,

      You may have missed my past Blog post where I wrote about building those cabinets.

      Two drawer cabinets with full extension slide outs are already built. These cabinets were installed in Little Honda. When I removed these cabinets from Little Honda, I damaged the corner posts. The lumber that I bought from Home Depot yesterday evening will be used to replace those damaged corner posts.

      BTW. Did you know that I worked in a cabinet shop for close to five years? 1995 to 2001.

  2. If George is anything like me the building and rebuilding is the fun part. When you're retired projects sure help keep the days interesting and keep your mind working.

    1. Hi again, Point,

      Cabinetmaker. I used to be a cabinetmaker.

      As Otto wrote, doing this kind of stuff is the fun part.

      Glad that you understand, Point! 😀

  4. There is a YouTuber that lives in your same model Transit full time. He is in Canada. I don't know how he does it. One Awesome Inch is his YT handle. What are your thoughts and is it feasible to you? I have never been in one (Transit) so cannot get a grasp on the "livability."

    1. Hi Steve,

      While I was adventuring along the Pacific Coast earlier this week, I met a young woman who was fulltiming in a Ford Transit. But this model had very tall roof. She was able to stand upright inside!

      I'll answer your question about being feasible this way:
      In my years on-the-road, I've met sooooo many RVers traveling in ordinary cars. I would never do that! But often necessity makes those folks do it!

  5. I'd shop at second hand stores and get a real nice three drawer cabinet and refurbish it. Old stuff are well made and made of good wood not particle board and plastics.

    1. Hi Rita,

      That's a thought, Rita.

      Thank you,

  6. How can you not feel nostalgic over a little car that you even named?

    1. Hi Freebird,

      Of course you are absolutely right!

      However, when I walked by where Little Honda was parked today, I felt like a traitor. A nostalgic traitor! 😪

      I guess that I have a rich imagination.

  7. Hi George!
    Just curious... when your name finally get's called due to a vacancy at Jojoba Hills RV, are you going to be hanging up what do you call it? "Boondocking?" Or will this just be a "Main Base" and you'll still be traveling the countryside?

    1. Hi Tom,

      Main Base. Most of the Jojoba people take off and travel during the summer. I will do the same.
