Busy at the Hideout

At the Hideout

It is not called the “Secret” Hideout just to be cute.  Some projects and happenings here are  kept close intentionally. Then there is My Bro’s stuff and goings on which is his business.  Posts to the blog here are going to be less frequent simply because of these factors.

After the Big Hails,  the No Princess Palace was purchased quickly out of dire necessity.  At the time of purchase,  I knew it was an entry or at best mid level RV that in no fashion approached the construction quality of the Old Girl.  Add in 4 years of
