  • Battery Terminals – 2000 F-250

    After more than a year of owning and driving Roadrunner, I finally got around to changing out the battery terminals; it was definitly time! I picked up a set of military style terminals from amazon, some copper terminal ends and heat shrink pieces, gathered up my heat gun, large gauge wire strippers, crimpers, and a…

  • Re sealing the RV Fridge Vent Jun 2024

    For the last week or so, I’ve noticed as the outside weather gets warmer, so has the inside of my fridge and freezer.Ideally, the fridge should be 40°, and the freezer should be 0° (farenheit). Mine was getting up to 60 and 34, respectively, so it was time for some troubleshooting! I started with the…

  • Doggone it!

    It’s been quite some time since my last post, so here’s a fresh post to go with the fresh website upgrade and other new, shiny stuff! Doggie tax: My pups are doing well, having a grand old time exploring the Colorado Wilderness with me, and dealing with the altitude like the champions that they are!…

  • Day 3 – 07MAR24

    Got some welding practice in today, though I noted I spent more time cutting and gfrinding than welding! I’m starting to get into a ‘system’ where I cut the welds apart from the day before, then grind them down, then weld them back together. I’m focusing on ‘dragging my slag’, keeping my tip 3/8″ away…

  • New role, new chapter, new volume!

    Today it’s official, I’m the new volunteer camp host for Bear Creek Lake Park campground! It’s my first time as a camp host, and so far it’s going very well. I’ve gotten several compliments, no complaints yet, and just wrapped up training today; they even issued me a radio! 😛 The campground is open until…

  • Updates 23OCT22

    Hey, Hi, and Hello! It’s been a rollercoaster of a week for sure, but it’s ended on a high note, and I’m looking forward to the week coming up. My time has been deeply divided between work, business, social, personal, truck, and dog issues, but I think I’ve got them mostly sorted out now. Work…

  • RV parks in Denver, CO

    So I finally got around to visiting a bunch of other RV parks in Denver, and these were my findings: Dakota ridge RV Park is $1,500 a month in the off-season, a month is 28 days, but they want the full amount up front plus 50% of each month that you want to stay after…

  • Updates 09OCT22

    It’s been a fun, full week! Busy across the board, working on business, bicycles, and other fun stuff. For bicycles, I’ve ended up with FIVE in my stable! Two of them I’ll keep for myself, one mountain and one hybrid; the rest are up for sale, hopefully to pay for my new addiction. I’ve been…

  • Dating 2.0

    Alright, it’s more like dating 9.0, but whatever. So here’s the deal: I’m in Denver now, (menver if you listen to the locals), and getting back to living life on my terms after a very tumultuous winter 2021. Most of my friends have told me I should get back into dating now that I’m in…

  • Updates 02OCT22

    It’s way past time for me to get back to my weekly blog updates, so here’s my stab at it for October, in lieu of carving a pumpkin. Still at Denver Meadows, still working, grinding, hustling, whatever you want to call it. I’m working on expanding two more streams of income using skills I have…
