So it's been a long time since my last post. I moved to Seattle into an apartment complex and had to park in the parking garage. I wasn't able to do any work there. Recently I've relocated to a house an I'm able to actually work on her again. Hooray!
Here's a pic I took in Yellowstone on the way from CO to WA:
The heater I got from Nomadcat worked GREAT. It was way into the negative double digits and we stayed toasty warm all night long. =)
This has been such a long running project. More than a few times I've thought about selling her and cutting my losses. But things have changed so maybe I can actually get this done?
I just put the very first board int he van since moving here well over a year ago! I've started in the overhead shelf for the front. I needed a solid surface to anker to. I came up with this:
I decided to take the radio down as I think I want to put a screen for a backup camera there instead. I might put the radio behind the driver or just get a handheld.
I also started thinking about the last cabinet, the one behind the driver. I decided I didn't want to hinder my reclining front seat if I can help it. A few scraps of wood balanced in place suggest it's totally reasonable:
Otherwise, mostly I've been fixing stuff that's broken in the last couple of years. That's a lot of stuff. I gotta say, there's a lot about Washington that makes it worth having a van:
So maybe next time I post I'll have something interesting to show off.
