Episode 46: Wasps & Doing work in the Off Grid Camper

working on camper floor edges

Good morning, good day, and good evening to everyone tuning into the Off Grid Podcast! Today I was at it again working in the camper with a dremel tool in hand. Mother nature threw me a curve ball though because when I woke up there were two wasps flying around inside my “tiny off grid home”. lol No mater what the weather nor curious insects that come to explore this strange new zoo in their neck of the woods (my camper) will keep me from making progress out here because winter is coming. So with my dremel tool, a pair of sunglasses, and a marker I was cutting some of the trim to add finishing touches to the new camper floor. The trim was about a 1 inch by 1 inch piece of working on camper floor edges 1aluminum angle iron made for covering the edge of stairs and doorways. I was happy with the new addition to the off grid project and the camper was starting to look better every day.

Despite the rare distractions of stinging insects and not always having the right tools for the repair job things always seem to work out. As far as I know I’m not allergic to bees / wasps but I was not taking chances. One wasp seemed to be fascinated by the central roof vent so that one was clear of my work area. The other one was lounging around in the back bathroom screen window. I was utilizing my time working on the DIY camper project up toward the front of the camper. Everybody was happy and we all had our space! lol Well the morning flew like time does out here off the grid and it was time for me to go. Yup.. one thing you must do out here in a camper with no AC is keep an eye on the temp. The thermometer hit 87 degrees so it was time to be smart in the hot humid summer heat by going into work. 🙂 All in all it was a good morning and with the couple distractions mother nature had in store I was still making progress. Things were going in a positive direction and the simple life off the grid is a happy one.
