What's New With Us

Well, not too much to report this month. Early on, Anne and I finished our 14-day mandatory self-isolation, after getting back from the US late last month. Thankfully we managed to avoid the virus.

Since then, like most people, we have been staying at home, which for us is our Cougar camper and our RV site here on Vancouver Island. Luckily we are in a beautiful spot with a view with and a lovely seaside walkway nearby.
I usually find time during the day to take a stroll out the spit for a bit of exercise and fresh air. It sure helps with the physical and mental well being. I quite enjoy the wildlife. There are plenty of birds and marine mammals to spot. There is nothing like seeing a passing pod of Orca to brighten up the day.
Anne is currently on two immune system suppressing drugs for an illness, so we have to be extra careful. We severely limit any travel and visits to stores. Once every two weeks or so, I put in an online order to the grocery store and pick it up outside.
To keep myself occupied, I've been concentrating more on product review type videos. I get the companies to ship by courier right to our RV site. You'll find a few I've recently completed below, and more are in the pipeline.
I've also decided to team up with Lippert Components (LCI) as what they call an ambassador. They are going to send me out some of their RV products to install over the next few months, and review. They tell me they are looking for some honest feedback and ideas on what real RVers are needing.
I've dealt with them in the past, and all the products I installed back then are still on the rig and working well. So, I believe they mostly sell quality aftermarket products, but we'll see. I'll be sure to let them know how I think they can improve on stuff, along with feedback from my viewers.

Here are links to my past Lippert Components installs:

Elephant Jack Pads

Air Ride Pin Box

Siphon 360 Waste Tank Vents

Wastemaster Sewer Hose
The Cougar trailer is getting up there age-wise, nearly ten years old now, and several things require replacing or upgrading soon. Stuff like the entrance stairs, awning, kitchen sink, and faucet are high on my list.
We Love our RV!  As you know, I've modded and added a ton of stuff to it, making it our own. We are quite attached to it and want to keep it going as long as possible. Stay tuned...
