Things going on.

Hi folks, well,, not a whole lot going on. The weather has been rainy and the last couple of days, pretty sunny and warm. Been working on a new project and just finished it. I built a small couch or as some of you say, love seat. I call it a "no love seat, lol".

The end result, I just need to get a cover for the foam cushions.
I bought this recliner at Value village for $20.
I changed the cabin around for the last time, got it the way I want it now.


I moved my batteries and inverter out to the arctic entry.
I finished stocking my pantry.

Saturday, yesterday, I drove to Anchorage 85 miles away and bought this 1993 Ford Ranger extended cab for $750.




It runs great, has 220,000 and the tires have lots of tread and a 4 cyl. engine. Yes, I still have my car. That's pretty much it for now. Hope to have another post soon. Take care

Nice little truck...and great price.
Looks like a cosy, well arranged cabin.
Take care.

Hi Bigfoot, thanks. Thought it was time to give the Nissan a break, it's done enough work and now it's time for a rest.

The load carrying area on the new truck will be very useful John, hope it serves you well.

Looking "cool" in the shirts, must have warmed up in yr neck of the woods.

Our winter is 2/3rd gone, have snow on the High Country to our north.

Hi Peter, I'm sure it will serve me well. Yeah, it can get hot here. I'm a cold weather kind of guy. Hope all is well with you, down under.

Hi John :) That's a great deal on the truck. The no-love seat looks great! I giggled at that! Your cabin really does look cozy, I'm very envious! :)

Mary said...

Haha, no love seat. I like the cabin...don't think I'd ever leave.

You got rid of that cute little round table!! I liked it, the new one looks fine there but still liked the other one with the comfortable chairs. Lol. Love the "no love seat". You do nice work.

We will be out here in your neck of the woods for another week at most.

I see you have the old camper stove back in the cabin 😉 Just a curious quick question, the Colman camp stove with an oven, did you not like that one? I have been using mine since we got out here....I'm still working on my first 20 lb propane tank after a full months use with the Colman...have made meatloaf, calzones, biscuits, etc in the oven, hard to control the heat but works great, I think...just wanting thoughts...thinking about springing for a 24 in propane/nat gas stove...non elec.

Hi! John, I haven't posted in quite awhile but you sure have been busy! Great job on the gate, looks nice! I always wondered what tool you use to take a pallet apart! And the " gotta love it seat" is nice! I always like when things are made of recycled wood. Your pantry is really stocked up for the winter! I hope you post when you get your first snowfall of the season. My sympathy goes out to you in the loss of your friend, it is one of the sad things we all have to bear as we age, the loss of family and friends. Take care and hope you are doing well, KC

John said...

Thanks KC, I appreciate the kind words.

Carol said...

Hi John I see you are busy as a beaver as usual. I love the love seat and the great thing about building it is yourself is you can make it the size to fit the space. I love your pantry and will stocked it is. Your cabin looks great! Glad to see you get a truck, you would be able to live without one now. They are great to haul anything! Cooler weather is on it's way as we get closer to winter. Take care!

John said...

Thanks Carol, I have been pretty busy. The truck is a welcome addition. Cold weather is here, 12 degrees this morning.

High John, i was wondering how much wood and gas it takes to make it a month or all winter in a cabin your size? Its my hope to live that lifestyle someday. Thanks for your posts its always fun to watch what your up to.
