Greetings on this gorgeous Sunday in September! Around here there's a coolness in the air and finally, a hint of fall. Bring it on!!
After church this morning, I moved the Miata, grabbed a broom, and began work on the new Java Port. One of the reasons I chose the wee Scotty over other vintage campers was her size. At less than 8 feet tall and hardly wider than the Pilot, I knew that she would fit in my carport. That was a huge factor in the decision to get a vintage trailer.
I want to be able to look outside and see her! I want to be able to walk right outside and touch her. I want to be able to take an afternoon nap or read in her. Gee whiz, I want to be able to camp in the carport if I want to!!
So from 9:30 to just before kick-off of the Saints and Redskins' game, I moved stuff, rearranged stuff, threw away stuff, and swept. Here's The Coffee Cup's very own Java Port . . .
A few weeks ago, Becky and I met Toolbelt Sue and Rich in Lexington for lunch and a sweet purchase. Because The Cup won't have a jockey wheel like SplashT@B, I will need a way to get her turned around in the driveway and tucked in nicely beside the Pilot. Sue offered to sell me her trailer dolly for an incredible price and I jumped on it!
Another item I took care of a weeks ago was to have a dedicated electrical outlet installed so The Cup could get some go-go-juice. My favorite electrician, Greg King, had it installed in a snap! It's conveniently located and will allow me to keep the battery charged.
