Months of preparations led up to a very successful Cabin Work Week, which focused on our 2nd CCC-built group cabin site -- Chickahominy. The team that assembled was a blend of repeat and brand new volunteers. They did an amazing job. You can get a glimpse of all they did in this project video.
The work doesn’t stop with the end of the official project. We have another week of stowing supplies and some more work at next year’s cabin site – Weyanock. However, the pace has slowed some, which is a blessing.
The chirping woke us from a sound sleep. Disoriented, we tried to place what it was. Removing the battery from the smoke detector made no difference. The chirping continued. Then the light dawned. It was the CO / Propane detector. Since this was directly wired in, it wasn’t a battery problem. The manual finally told us that the the detector was at the end of its useful life. Since we didn’t have a replacement in the RV, we pulled the failing one off and cut the wires. Just a few days later, a replacement arrived and was quickly installed. That should give us another 5 years of life.
Our bi-weekly hauling of our holding tank waste took an unexpected turn one Sunday. The front wheels on the Rhino portable waste tank failed during a run up to the dump station. We managed to limp through that trip and one more, but we wouldn’t be able to use it again without replacement wheels. Although Camco responded quickly the next morning to ship new wheels, they didn’t arrive in time for our mid-week run. Thanks to the graciousness of our neighbors, we were able to use their tank for an after dark trip. Luckily the wheels arrived the next day and Cathy had installed them before the time we needed them. Whew!
We had a couple of visits with Bonnie’s family for a campfire meal at their home. We had 2 great visits with nice weather, good food, and fellowship. And we got to see the latest additions to the “farm”.
Adam continued his work transforming his school bus to an RV. Dave helped him sort through the electrical panels at Home Depot, moving a little closer to getting the bus powered up.
