I got an early start this morning working in the Lance camper, which for me is about 6 o'clock, and getting an early start is about the only way I can get anything done before it gets too hot.
I hung the insulated blackout curtains in the living room window, and the kitchen window so I could finally throw the broken venetian blinds in the trash. Like I mentioned before, the folks I bought the Lance from had a dog, and the dog had pretty much destroyed the blinds while trying to see outside when he didn't get to go with the rest of the family.
I put my mattress where it belongs in the "bedroom," so now I believe the camper is pretty much livable temporarily, but it's got a ways to go before it will be ready for my winter travels. But I think right now, the only thing that's holding me back from heading to the high country is timing.
For those of you that aren't aware of the various ways that a camper bed can go, there's two main ways a camper bed can be situated, and there known as north-south or east-west. Since my mattress is laying with the head to the front of the camper, and the foot to the rear of the camper, this is known as a north-south bed layout.
If you think about how a map of the United States is laid out with North at the top, and South at the bottom, this camper mattress thing will make a lot more sense.
I haven't figured out what to do about curtains in this area yet, so you can still see what the dog has done to almost all the venetian blinds.
If you click the pic, you may be able to see that this bed is made about half an hour from me in Aurora Colorado... Unbelievable! Something made in America? Who'd a thunk it?
This is my mattress laid out in an east-west setting. My other two truck campers both had an east-west setting for the mattress, so I'm kind of used to that. I think I'll try both ways and see which one is the easiest to get in and out of.
