  1. Agreeing that ceiling hugging is the way to go.
  2. This is more of what I am thinking...some way to disguise everything a bit. Either pots/fake rocks to cover the covers, etc. I just need inspiration!
  3. The drainfield is all grass and not changing. This is over the tanks.
  4. I have 5 areas that I need attention. I need some inspiration and would love to see pictures of your similar spaces. Here's what we currently have: Area 1-front of the house. We took out some windows and I need to fill in the space with either a taller plant/tree or a hardscape feature. The hosta and day lilies will be split and moved to area 2. I plan to move in some sun loving perennials from area 4 up here. Area 2-pine trees. This space is 32 x 60, I will be bringing in dirt. This area will have hosta, and day lilies as well as some lily of the valley and ferns from area 3. I may try to plant grass or make a path through the space. All of the bigger boulders and rocks can be moved to any area. Area 3-behind the house. The ferns, and shade plants will all get moved under the pine trees. This space needs a patio and fire pit added. Area 4-sun perennials. These will all get pulled out. Whatever doesn't get used in other areas will go. Area 5-septic system. I am looking to primarily hardscape this area with rock/minimal plants.
  5. North shore of MN by Lake Superior, so many beautiful things to see. MN has tons of great state parks too.
  6. Oh, that's good to know, I may just have to bring the bigger one.
  7. Does anyone have any favorites that they cook in the mini instant pot that feed a family of four? I do have a six-quart pot as well but I was hoping to bring the mini for space consideration. I am debating bringing it along on vacation. In years past we have brought a small grill but there might not be room for it this year, so I'm trying to come up with some creative ideas so we don't just eat cold meat sandwiches all week.
  8. We love our chairs from REI. They now make an ultra light version too. It folds up to be the size of a quart nalgene bottle.
  9. Quick dry microfiber towel Lightweight flip flops for around camp Darn Tough wool socks (2 pair, alternate each day) I would emphasize this as being as important/more important than the clean underwear. Try to avoid blisters. We each have an aluminum cup and a lightweight spoon that we use for all meals/hot drinks Water Bottle Battery Pack to recharge a phone if he is leaving it in airplane mode and using it only for pictures, you should be able to make that timeframe (assuming it is allowed)
  10. BLT's on Sourdough tonight French Dip Sandwiches (cooking the meat in the Instant Pot) tomorrow
  11. If he is able, I would call each together when you are with him and have him authorize the address change. That way you can navigate the menu/getting a real person and he can make the change. Have the new address on a paper so he can read it. We let mom's DL expire and took her to get a state id when we could.
  12. How is it going? Hopefully today was short.
  13. They are so good. I don't like milk or dark chocolate. White chocolate Twix are wonderful too!
