When you have no bosses you decide what you are going to do. There has been a lot of talk about getting the work done and heading out on the road, but today when we could have put the walls and ceiling on I found nobody here with me to help. So . . . having no boss but myself, I can then decide to clean up and end my work day also. All I needed was a helping hand to hold the ceiling up while I nailed it in. Which means we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have almost finished the toughest jobs — the trunk floor & walls, the roof vent, the wiring, and a couple dozen other small jobs. However, we still have the windows . . . and the trunk door is simply falling apart.

Thus by an unprejudiced observation of the animal kingdom, we reach the conclusion that wherever society exists at all, this principle may be found: Treat others as you would like them to treat you under similar circumstances.” –Peter Kropotkin, Anarchist Morality


“Dirty” came back today and helped finish the trunk area and got the outside trailer lights to work!

Cutting away the rotted wood in the ceiling (there was more than we thought) was a tough and messy job


I did say it was a messy job . . .


. . . very messy!


Experience will teach you that fixing things often leads to things getting messy, and looking worse than before . . . but that is only temporary, very temporary. When we change The System it might get messy, but it will be temporary.

Yes, we have a black cat watching over us — Snowflake, one of the half-feral resident cats.
