I got this Idea from a fellow blogger, whose wife has allergies also, so, I thought why not, it just may help Sheryl out a bit. First off, I hate those little foam things they call filters in RV A/C units, they are just to flimsy and seem to get sucked up and out of shape pretty quickly. Anyway, I went to Lowes and found a size adjustable reusable residential A/C filter, said to filter out 90+% of the yuck and allergens in the air. They come in different sizes, so I pick the one I knew I could get two filters from. Sorry I don't have pictures of the box and frame, but they are easy to spot. Once you get the filter home, remove it from the packaging, frame and cut the filter to your needed size. One thing you will notice is, the filter has a plastic flow through cover on each side to stabilize the filter itself. I had Sheryl sew all sides of the filter so it would stay together nicely. Next check the packaging for the proper air flow direction and replace your foam thing with the new one. We've had ours in for a couple of months now and they seem to be doing there job just fine. They are also easy to clean with the hose outside.
Ok, that was short and sweet, stay tuned for our next mod, or real post which ever comes first.

My (Kevin) back is feeling considerably better than 5 days ago, and ready to travel. However, due to the way it happened, I we are going to return to OKC and checked out by my doctor. I need to make sure it is nothing more serious than a strain and if so have it taken care of. More than likely it's just a strain and we are hoping to be back traveling again within 2 weeks time. Our original plan may have to be modified, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. We are leaving Ft Smith in the morning (Sunday) and headed back to OKC.
So until next time, take care and we'll see you back here again.

Wow, there I was standing in the motorhome minding my own business, when out of nowhere, it felt like someone took a cattle prod to my lower back!!! Luckily I was stand next to the couch because down I went. This was on Saturday and I'm still paying for it with some pretty severe pain on the left side of my lower back. In my usual stubbornness I figured it would work it self out if I just kept active, nope just got worse. So now nurse Sheryl has put me on bed rest with all the usual back pain treatments she can think of. We are here in Ft Smith, AR till Sunday, so hopefully I'll be in traveling shape by then. Wosh me luck!!! and see you next time right back here.

The day has finally come and Sheryls doctors have given her the all clear to travel!!! Yes, last week we started our grand adventure once again. We are currently in Ft Smith, AR. We spent a week at Devils Den State Park, AR. before arriving here. The park had no cellphone or WiFi service, hence the late posting, but more on that later. I guess a little update is in order, since we haven't posted in 6 months. When we last posted my (Kevin) back and neck were all jacked up and was preparing for surgery. Well the darnedset thing happend, about two weeks before the surgery, I woke up one morning and all the pain was gone!!! We went in for my schedule pre op appointment, told the doc what had happened, and he said, no need to touch you then unless it comes back. Yes the damage is still there, but I'll take the no op and no pain any day!!!
Poor Sheryl has had a few scares over the past several months, but all is well now. No back surgery for her either and her heart is fit as a fiddle.
So, just a quick update, that all is well with us an as Willy Nelson so eloquent ly put it "we're on the road again"
