New Room. And other stuff

 Cullman,  AL

We've been thrilled to have had so many RVers use our sites in the last couple of weeks.  We are expecting our 165th RV later today.  It's two years ago this week that we first joined Boondockers Welcome as hosts.

We met this nice couple years ago in Hondo TX and made a life-long connection.   They are in our area once a year getting their Tifflin Motorhome serviced in Red Bay, Al.    While there last month they came for a too-short visit.   This is Jerry and Carol (and us of course).

Daughter Terri came for a five-day visit two weeks ago.

While she was here, we had two couples staying on our sites.   Both with beautiful traveling homes.  We spent lots of time visiting.   One afternoon when Leonard was a pulmonary therapy, they asked Terri and me to join them at a local attraction.   Goat Island Brewery.

I had a root beer.   Terri, not so much.

Here they all are.

Well.... our new room is DONE.  Mostly.   It still needs a new ceiling fan.  We purchased the carpeting from Lowes.   They came to measure.  At that time we were told they would not install it as this room is not climate controlled.   What?   It's indoor/outdoor carpet.   We plan to eventually have heat and air out there but that wasn't good enough.   Ok.   Our neighbor Gary to the rescue.  He and Len picked up the carpet.

First they had to cut 4 feet off as the carpet came in 12-foot widths.   Our room is 8 foot wide.

This is Len "supervising" and Gary working.

We are so blessed to have great neighbors.   Gary and Ashley to the east and Hilton and Cindy to the west.   

It didn't take Gary long to complete the job.   When Terri got here a couple of days later I asked her and an RVer  get the sofa from the basement.   This was originally Terri's sofa that she purchased more than 30 years ago.  We went to Walmart and got new cushions and pillows.   This is the completed project.

Loving this room.   I am so glad we decided on this improvement.  

Until next time.....


  1. The new room looks great.
    That Company won't be in business long with that attitude.
    Congrats on the growing number of Boondockers.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Love how it turned out! Bet it'll be nice sitting out there on cool nights.
