We have people in Olympia!
Are you hooked up with the Knotpinebox/Heliotroupe side of the family?

Re: the88

Can't comment to your blog. Blogger has a few issues with some of the selections in the dashboard for comments. Might try changing how the comments are set.

About the latest post...

For a little privacy, you might put curtains around the beds and turn the bed spaces into personal keepsake areas. Kids can game, read, doodle, etc without parental eyes watching--big deal for my teen daughter. Also gives adults a bit of privacy. Keep in mind that unless you are living in a cold climate inside that bus you will probably be outside a huge part of the day, we sure are when we're FT.

Re: the88

We should be able to get some private space with the floorplan we have envisioned: from front to back- cabin, door to boy's bunkroom, door to shower/toilet, door to kitchen, then the dining/living/master bedroom. the bed in the back will serve as part of the living room seating with a pile of pillows, and the 4 upholstered chairs serve as both dining and living room chairs with the table 3" lower than conventional.

Re: the88

Thanks, YankeeFlyer. I'm sure there's going to be plenty more to laugh about and at, and weeping and gnashing of teeth along the way...
And Seeria, when wacko poster child elections are held next, I'm definitely running.
I hope I'll have your vote.
