ON THE ROAD.... FINALLY! LOL! 🐸

Hit the road Tuesday morning. And feels good to be rolling along again! Taking my time... which is hard for me to do! Too many years of having to keep up a time deadline...now my deadline is..."whenever"! LOL!
Sooooo...start late.....end day early! Heheheh! But I do admit, it feels very good!

And being able to stop & look at things that I flew past in prior days is actually very refreshing to me!
If you follow me on Instagram, truckingfrog, then you know about #icaughtfrog2021. If you should see Lily or Frog, take a picture of us, post it & tag us and I'm working on getting stickers to give out! It could become an interesting thing to follow! Feels like a fun possibility! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸΈ
It's time for b'fast, so have a GREAT DAY, and keep checking back in with us. This is the beginning of 12 months on the road!

C'ya out here!

Just sitting by the Gulf!

Decided to try out the Blogger app to see if it has gotten any better...& surprisingly it has! πŸΈπŸ‘πŸ»

So I might just be able to keep up now! πŸ€ͺ🀣 Just killing time today by the Gulf, outside of Flower Bluff, TX. Literally across the waters from my daughter's place. 

My accomplishment this week has been to get Lily's roof coated with elastromeric paint....seals the roof & insulates. Them I go over the paint with a coat of high gloss enamel to make it presentable! 🐸🚐. It came out pretty well.

I'll be headed "North" Tuesday, going thru Austin then on to DFW visiting some friends.

So keep checking in with us, this is hopefully the beginning of 12-14 months on the road!

C'ya out here!

A Busy Month! 🐸

 

 March was a BUSY month! Starting with getting Long Garage ready for the Grand Opening! And it went very well. Had a pretty good turnout. Not sure just how many came, but I will say that we were steady with people for over 4 hours. Which was great!






And there was also a live radio feed of the first two hours, which helped to bring in quite a few of the folks!
 

During the month I also worked on, or had work done, or....Cary did work on Lily! From having a rear deck/rack added.....






 To having a complete front brake job done - by Cary!


 To my finishing up the "deck build"..so Lily now has an actual deck, wooden! Big enough for 2 people or 1 person & the BBQ grill!!


(Not to mention a lot of my sweat & some of my blood!)
 
I also brought back to life the little trailer that I've had sitting in the barn for the past 15+ years!
It was designed by FORD to be pulled behind the Pinto (so I've been told) and I have, apparently, one of the few that were made by Sears! And it is in amazing condition!

I'm also just blown away by how much stuff that I had packed into Lily! I mean, that was just ridiculous! But it is all neatly (basically) packed into what I now call "Lily's 2-wheeled suitcase"! And I now have ALL my tools with me again, which makes me very happy!

I also mounted LED marker lights on the rack/deck, put a complete new set of LED lights on the trailer, installed driving lights & fog lights (real AMBER fog lights)! Also mounted on rack & trailer the "slow moving vehicle" safety triangles. So don't tell me you didn't see me!!  LOL!
So now we're down to 2 days and back on the road we shall go....Myself & Abbie!  We've been parked for long enough! We are headed West, and will probably be out West for the next 12-14 months unless something really important comes up...and I mean REALLY important!!  LMAO!!
 
So stick with us and see all the places we will see! I will be posting on InstaGram almost daily, and the blog will be done at least 2-3 times each week.  AND I'm still working on getting my act together on my YouTube channel. There will be, hopefully, a lot of video shot & posted this year!
 
So come join us on the back roads!
 
C'ya out there!!
