I get to visit my Boler overnight!

Which might seem really odd but it's kept a 15 minute drive away at my father's place (which is beautiful but...). She goes in for her safety tomorrow morning at 8am so we're bringing it into the city for the night. Since I've only napped in it, I think I'll test it out overnight. Maybe even get the battery box on since I'll have my own tool cabinet around.

My husband thinks I'm nuts to be this excited to have it in our driveway but I thought you'd all appreciate the feeling!

I got mine in November and just "tried to sleep" out there lastnight. Too cold, damp and new mold growing so after a couple hours of being stoked over it, I came in and crawled in my own bed. I'm excited to get on the road too!

I know the feeling. "Betsey" is in a friends heated garage about 10 minutes away. Easy to work on, and plan on just working in the evening and just 'camping' out there. Easier to find problems and scheme about things to change..... 1973 Boler in basically original shape.

There's a group on Facebook called "Camping At Home," and they do precisely that. Some with the trailer in the garage, under a carport or parked in the backyard. Based on the pictures posted, they seem to have a lot of fun. After all, once you're inside and the curtains are pulled closed... you could be anywhere!

Sounds like fun!

We have used out trailer in the back yard, at present it is just over an hours drive to it will go use it this coming weekend; glad it has a furnace. They are only calling for day time temperatures of -5 to -7 with wind chill that is only -7 to -9 so it will be a nice weekend!
We will take extra blankets the snow blower, generator and a backup quartz heater. Actually wish it was in the driveway, even though it is colder hear -17 with -22 wind chill.

Finally completed the 'boler barn' structure this week. Dug our 'anticky' out of the snow and winched her inside. Ordered the garage door (12 ft wide by 9 ft. high). Should start some renos as soon as temps get above freezing (like maybe April ?). The new barn is just 16ft by 16ft, but has a 12 ft. ceiling, so the 13' Boler will be cosy and cumfy. And, just 40 feet from home and workshop.

Lovely day here today......pre-snowstorm forecasted for overnight. Temps around -10C were relatively balmy compared with my last month spent in the Arctic.
Sat outside in our lawn chairs, enjoying a campfire in the firepit. The mug of "special tea" followed by a bbq.
And all the while, our Outback remains cozily snug in the carport, waiting to be sprung as soon as the weather hints of spring.

We didn't camp in it overnight but we sure enjoyed the rest of camping activities!

After being away from the Boler for many months now and the issues of not getting her under a tarp roof for the winter, I'm looking forward to Spring so I can reacquaint myself with her and get working on issues that cropped up. Right now she's buried under snow a quarter way up the door so I'm just looking at pictures and making plans!
