My Camper Renovation (State of Grace RV, Part 1)

This older model Fifth-wheel (a 1990 Wilderness) sat in my parents’ yard for several years, unused.

This first post shows the sad state of “Grace” (I decided that I should give “her” a name that showed promise), and future posts will show the progress that is being made

We set it up at my house so that I could use it for a
• sewing room (too small)
• office (electricity was too unreliable)
• chick nursery (and ducks and geese — it was PERFECT before the rats moved in)
• feed shed for the grains for the feathered friends after the chicks moved outside.

There was a mini-tornado in 2017 or 2018, and the attached awning was torn away like a slip of paper…then gently laid down on the porch and plants…
The only damage (other than the awning tearing away) was a broken citronella plant. It could have been MUCH worse!

The cats have contributed their own style of decorating…notice the curtains?? Curtains by Miss Kitty…

Rats enjoy Feast in the Camper Feed Room
After I started storing the grains (corn and layer feed) in the camper, the RATS moved in. These are not cute little mice…the ones caught by my cats are usually 4 inches long (body) and THEN the tail is another 3 inches or so. They chewed holes in every bag, and made a royal mess of the feed and the floor. The mess is obvious in this photo of the entrance.

The rats also made a home in the storage area below the couch, and the bed in the upper deck. Recently, I moved the corn and other grains to another location.
A couple of months ago, I bought a bag of potting soil and put it in the camper as well. Since the rats do not have a bag of corn to open oh, they have open the potting soil and spread it all over the floor. Now my plants if I use the soil are going to have a liberal base thing of corn husks!


The little opening just above the yellow bag is their “entrance”

I pour little piles of fresh corn in the yard near the porch in the evening. The cats are finding it easier to catch the rats that come out to the yard to eat the corn. Previously, the rats would hide from the cats in the storage access areas or the bath and bedroom. Now, if they want to eat, they have to go outside.

Decorating courtesy of Spice Girl #7
One night, I didn’t realize that one of the Spice Girls (my wild, sweet Ameracuna hens) was in the camper when I shut the door. The next morning, EVERYTHING was in the floor…She gave me a good scolding when she flew out the door and went to join her flock.

The PERFECT Nesting Box
Bianca, the Light Brahma, refuses to lay any place other than HER nest box on HER couch. Sometimes the RATS try to pull her fleece blanket nest out the back of the box, but I put it back in place for her to use the next day.

The PUURRRFECT Place to Nap
The cats have always liked the camper, so they still take naps in the kitchen area, when the wasps will allow. They don’t mind the mess made by Spice Girl #7 OR the RATS (they consider it prime hunting ground).

Inspired by Other Camper and RV Renovations

For a while, I considered having the useless thing towed out into the pasture and replacing it with a new model that I could use when the electricity/water was giving problems again…

In my search for the perfect NEW camper, I was inspired by the vintage camper renovations at Parkway Campers. I have decided to reclaim my space and “Fix ‘er UP!!” 🙂

Happy Camping!

How To Make A 24” Round Pie-Shaped Pouf — JOANN

This is a BEAUTIFUL pillow topper for a round pillow. However, the post about the project was premature.

https://www.joann.com/how-to-make-a-24%E2%80%9D-round-pie-shaped-pouf/522173376P23.html

Several of the reviews about the project are in agreement about the missing parts and information:

  1. No templates (apparently the link is broken),
  2. poor directions except for basic pillow construction,
  3. no zipper,

READ the reviews and see if you agree with those women.

THEN check my links for projects and tutorials to help create your own beautiful round pouf pillow topper.

05242020 FLOOR FAN almost DIED and Cell Network Connections DID NOT Show New Connections

05242020 FLOOR FAN almost DIED and Cell Network Connections did not show the Rocky Top Ranch Road connectionsAs I am writing this post at 6:13 am, my fan in the hallway sounds like it is going to die at any minute. The power fluctuations center around my use of the cell phone, low percentage of battery, and sites to do with sewing or Amazon.Those instances are when I noticed the most activity with the fan. This is not the first time I have had problems with electrical equipment. Since April 2018, there have been two dead refrigerators, three dead floor fans, doubled power bills, and absolute proof through an energy audit that my cell phone and the excessive power bills have a direct connection. the hackers use my power lines for hacking my cell phone. In the process, they destroy electrical equipment and appliances in my home.Tower 384 also has to connect to my phone when I am posting to WordPress. At those times, the fan falters in the hallway. another sign of hacking, is that my phone SUDDENLY doesn’t understand my dictation.I was looking for comparison prices and availability on a certain item, when my floor fan almost died.I checked the cell network connection and it was over on Rocky Top Ranch Road, in front of the house of my former supervisor (an electrical engineer).Almost 10 minutes later, the fan is still having problems in the hallway. Last year, two floor fans died in that same locationI did an energy audit back in March, and the result was that electrical power consumption was maxed out when I was using my cell phone, especially for conversation with my cousin.The hackers almost doubled my power bills over a 1-year period.

05212020 Two Helicopters

05212020 Two Helicopters Flying Over My House This Evening.

The first helicopter was flying from the West, probably North Georgia, at 1820 hours,

The second helicopter was at 2115 hours.

I was reading a book on my e-reader at 1820 hours.

I had just finished my evening chores and was starting to watch television again at 2115 hours.

All day, since this morning, my phone has started out on Rocky Top Ranch Road, at the residence of my former employer from Jacobs Engineering.

I think the helicopters are connected to Jacobs Engineering and the harassment and persecution I have had to endure since 2011.

05182020 Hackers Kill ANOTHER Refrigerator

05182020 Hackers Kill ANOTHER RefrigeratorMy new refrigerator, bought in April 2018, is on its last leg.My refrigerator in the kitchen died in April 2018. I plugged my phone charger into the outlet that was shared by the refrigerator.It was working fine on Thursday and Friday. The weekend hackers took care of it, and I have the photos to prove it.I wonder if it’s retaliation because I called the sheriff’s office on Thursday to make an appointment to speak to him about the hacking situation here in Fair Play?OR, IS IT BECAUSE I PLUGGED THE PHONE CHARGER IN THE BATHROOM AGAIN?The outlet in the bathroom is directly related to the outlets in the sunroom and my office.

05012020 Why is e911 Monitoring My Phone?

005012020 Intrace 108.177.122.113 goes to New York City HallThe suspicious fact about this Trace is that it starts out at Rocky Top Ranch Road, where Wally Storey lives. It does not start at my house.My phone started out in the pasture / woods north of Tim Honea’s house. The connections log showed the URI Conference Service, which is e-911 or EMS fire department, deputies, etc. These would be connected to Oconee County. This is important because of the first stop in the trace in New York City Hall. A former Oconee County employee works at New York City Hall.Wally was my department manager when I worked for Jacobs Engineering Group in Greenville South Carolina.The first stop this TRACE makes is New York City Hall, where I think Josh Stewart works. Josh worked for Oconee County back in 2015 – 2016. He left in late 2016 or early 2017.The next stop is Morristown New Jersey, at the Prosight Specialty Insurance company. The amazing thing is that JACOBS ENGINEERING GROUP is in the same block with the Prosight Specialty Insurance company.Is it a coincidence that my TRACE starts at a former Jacobs Engineering Group supervisor’s location, and then the first stop is a former Oconee County employee in New York City, and the second stop is in the same block with Jacobs Engineering Group? Also, is it a coincidence that my phone is being monitored by e911, or emergency services?I think I will DEMAND the paperwork that gives these people the right to spy on my phone.Is it also a coincidence that people from New York State live in Louise Richardson’s trailer at Fair Play Equipment Company? They also have visits from the Oconee County Animal Control?Then my information goes round and round the US and ends up at the Carolina Brothers Pit BBQ in Ashburn, Virginia.Jerry Edwards’ former programmer lives in Virginia now. She divorced her former husband after he lost the election in 2012. He was Jerry Edwards’ candidate.#0: Your coordinates
