The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM Aug 3

Saturday, August 3, 2013

The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM 72 degrees and partly sunny to 101 degrees and sunny.

I was out early this morning trying to paint the roof of the shed. I am trying to work there before the sun gets up too high and the flies are a problem. Just plain old white paint. One or two more mornings and the roof will be done. Then color on the sides.

The first mud porch I had made and put away in Buster, well I took it out again and cut that in half taking one eight by two foot porch into two four foot by two foot porches. This will provide ease of storing and more combinations when we arrive at a gate site.

The tow bar, I receives the new end with the bolt and nut from Blue OX tow bar company and installed that. In removing the nut that was ground down I used my extra large channel lock pliers to hold the nut and a wrench to turn the bolt. When Buster is parked I put a bag over the tow bar well I did not mention that was shredded and came off also when the end was ground down dragging down the road.

Bonnie had taken Ethel onto Carlsbad for shopping so I went to Happy Hour by myself today and Bonnie came back to the ranch right after happy hour.

  1. I've recently discovered your blog while learning more about Escapees. I live in San Angelo, TX, and am nearing retirement and itching to get on the road. I am familiar with the Carlsbad area as I was a park ranger for 10 years at the caverns and Guadalupe national parks. Am interested in The Ranch and hopelearn more through their website.

    Thanks for blogging and sharing your ideas. I appreciate it.
