Home in Hammond

Roy and I shopped for a storage building for some time.  We decided upon the Heartland Rainer Gambrel Wood Storage Building from Lowe's.  It's a 10 x 10 building with a storage loft inside.

01.17.15 Two Chauvin men working hard… and a little hitch-itch!

I am beginning to have some growing hitch-itch.  For non RVers hitch-itch is the desire and even yearning we get when we are off the road "too long" and want to get back to traveling and exploring.  We still plan to head west after the house is rented. I follow several blogs, a few of… Continue reading 01.17.15 Two Chauvin men working hard… and a little hitch-itch!
