Up at the usual 04;30AM, actually a little earlier as Donna didn’t sleep well last night,we had our morning coffee, and then she was off to the truck company.
Didn’t have much on my plans for today, the emergency low beer warning light came on last night on the kitchen fridge, so I made a trip to the grocery store, for that a few items to restock the trailer.
We decided I am will bring the trailer up to the Lake on Wednesday, and get set up, and plan to stay until Monday morning, Adam is spending Wednesday at his cousin’s house in Marthasville Mo which is only about 3 miles from Lake Sherwood and then Thursday morning his Aunt Robin will be bringing him to the campground, they will probably stay so her two boys can swim with Adam for awhile. Adams cousins are both boys and they all get along well and Adam looks forward to when they meet us at the Lake. I have his Aunt on my guest list so they can use the Lake/Pool in the summer.
As I said it is another slow and hot day, the window says 100 and the computer weather for Dardenne Prairie says 97. Either way it is hot, the humidity is 46% and the barometer 29.93.(This is also the barometric altimeter setting for the local area for you pilots out there) Heat index is 107. Almost sounds like a Canadian weather report Eh.
Waiting for the parts to come for making my laptop stand for the truck. I want it to be like the ones in police cars so the laptop is secure when traveling but will swivel to be accessible to the passenger or the driver when he’s not driving. I am making a small mouse tray for my cordless mouse that you can set on you lap or on the console.
I read on someone's blog where they had a motor home parked in a driveway and put the leveling pads down and after awhile noticed the jacks had sunk in the asphalt. Might be a good thing to remember that when it is 100 degrees the roads and asphalt get soft. Most residential driveways only have 2 inches of asphalt that has been rolled with a small roller. When I paved my place I specified three inches and a heavy highway type roller and did my parking pad for the trailer the same way. I still put 2 or 3 foot long boards under each pad front & back to spread out the footprint, just to be safe and haven’t had any sinking problems yet. Just thought it might be a good reminder no matter where you park if it’s blacktopped in this weather.
Not much else going on here, waiting for Donna to come home from work, Hope everyone is having a great day. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……
