Change in Truck Camping

I have accepted a short term job as property manager for some former employees. This will give me time, and money, to remove the musty, moldy wood, rearrange the shelving, get new cloths for covering the undersides of the bed, fix the access to the screws holding down the topper, etc.

I have to fix the fire extinguisher so that it stays on the frame of the topper. Nothing I have tried works on rough roads. Screws will work.

I have so much stuff squirreled away that this is the perfect opportunity to get lean. This is also the perfect opportunity to get myself lean. I work hard at this job and it is an opportunity to get in shape. Have spent the last year reading and sitting. Ugh. The older I get the harder it is to stay fit.

Lilith needs to be looked at by Toyota. There is a noise in the engine that is new, the tires need to be rotated, the oil needs changing, filters need to be replaced, the hood needs painting. I use the hood for many things, so I plan getting it painted with the heavy duty paint that is used for truck beds. Not pretty, but tough.

It is hard to stop traveling. I am so in love with that life. But it will be for a good cause, helping out friends and fixing up Lilith. And it is a magical place to live in the mountains of Colorado.

I will keep you up to date on the repairs. I will also tell/show you past events that I glossed over or never told you about. Do let me know if there is anything you want to know about.

    Congrats on the latest chapter, each is interesting to follow you through. Looking forward to reading about updates (as well as the specific topper you have, how you got it, what you’ll be doing to it, etc). Enjoy Colorado for those of us wishing we were in the mountains. (P.S. thanks for all the information on water carriers – I’ve been looking around now.)

    HI Pickett
    I’ll be teaching at the Anderson Ranch the first week in August and bringing David over to the Ranch the week before for his residency. I’d love to see you if you’ll still be there. Send me an email: and let’s see if we can make it work!
    Glad to know where you are and that you’re back in such a beautiful place.
