Spring is in the air here in the Arizona desert; plants are blooming, citrus trees are producing their fruits – grapefruit and lemons, and people are starting to head out to their next destination.
As we try to nail down our next destination; we are staying quite busy trying to make sure the rig is all set to roll when the time comes – probably at the end of March.
~Jerry has finished up our solar project (if there is such a thing); as you may recall we started that process back on our Living off the grid blog. We had a Samlex 2000 watt inverter installed, so we can just plug and use our 110v appliance…. SWEET – no more having to run the generator, plus we got a nice night light out of the deal ~ LOL =).
~He also got the pleasure to put in a new radiator in the “toy” aka Toyota Land Cruiser, however we can’t complain- after all it did have its 38 year old original radiator in it.

~Plus we did a little remodel project to our rig. Before leaving Texas, we decided to take out the dinette in order to put a chair in for Deb. So we decided to add some cabinets in order to gain some storage that we had lost.
Deb has been having fun learning how to make some new recipes like the perfect lemonade, fresh yogurt, jam and a new version for potato salad. She just hopes there is time to try her luck at fresh bread and cinnamon rolls.
Just image how wonderful the rig would smell!!!!
IS YOUR MOUTHWATERING YET?
Deb’s sure is; as cinnamon rolls are just one of her weakness – ice cream being the biggest!! :D Must give a HUGE shout-out to Jan for all her time and great recipes!!! Thank you.
Where is all the time going?
Oh, we hope we haven’t miss lead you ~ as it has been far from All Work and No PLAY… it’s actually been right the opposite! That’s why we chose to live this lifestyle after all!!! ;o) Recently we have got to enjoy looking for fossils in the rocks, had several camp fires and eating with great friends.
We would like to send a BIG congratulations to Deb's nephew on his first child. Braden, welcome to our family!!
