There are a few hints in the Wonder Woman movie. Nothing terribly helpful like GSP.

Thank you! It is a Sony Alpha A6000. I have been very happy with it. As you say, squishing photos down to a reasonable size for the web has a way of making them less good.
Ah, that's the mirrorless one IIRC. Those get featured a lot on hiking forums.

Yes - sure is. A whole slew of pics of the area in my last couple blog posts (here).

Someone commented on the views out the big windows in the bus. I was sitting on the couch the other enjoying that view and figured I ought to share it. Keep in mind that this is thru the 5% tint.

5% or 95%, I'd still trade you my location for yours.

I am terribly embarrassed by my lack of progress and updates of late. I am in NM house/pet sitting for some friends and it was supposed to be a couple weeks of huge progress. Instead.... well... I'm not even sure where the last couple weeks went.

I did get the new microwave/convection over "set" in place. Not permanently mounted yet...





I've also been working on the shower and bathroom floor. The shower walls required a bunch of custom fitting (for straight walls) and too many little details/challenges to list. However; it is coming along and I hope to be installing some tile tonight.





I've also acquired two new roommates. They promised to help me with all the work. I have to give them credit for trying - they are always there when I am working but so far there "assistance" is questionable. However; they do make me laugh!!

Here they are holding down some lumber for me.



Here they are trying to help me do something to this piece of wood - not sure what exactly.



If I just had a tenth of their energy!!

They should fire you. It's obvious you don't know anything about the way of cats nor interior design. It's called Distressing. It's making new stuff look antique. They are adding the dents and dings. It's up to you to do the staining. They don't have thumbs for holding paint brushes.

They are also gods and worshiped in many cultures. They shouldn't have to show a peasant such as yourself how to do manual labor.

P.S. The food bowl is running a little low. It's about time for another offering. It's hard to find well trained peasants these days.

Food! Yes - wow! I've had individual kittens before but never two at once - the amount of food they go thru is VERY impressive given their small size.

I do sometimes forget my place in this new living arrangement...

My two deities often remind everyone of their proper places.

I'm actually making some progress on the bathroom floor and shower. However; I haven't taken the time yet to organize my thoughts on photos.... Soon!

In the meantime, I did get the clothes washer/dryer combo unit moved into the coach. Thanks to the help of several friends and a skid-steer!



For those that are interested, it is a Kenmore 41003. It is a 4.5 cu. ft. Front-Load Combo Washer/Dryer in metallic silver. It measures 29.75" x 27.0" x 38.7"
and runs on 120 VAC.

No, sorry, I haven't fired it up yet. I have some plumbing work to do first....
