Brunch at Duo Bistro – Kingston NY

Duo Bistro

We took a leisurely ride to Kingston, NY to have brunch at Duo Bistro.  I came across Duo Bistro because I was browsing around the internet looking for places in the Hudson Valley that served Saturday brunches.  Duo Bistro popped up and I perused their brunch menu. Well, when I saw the Chef Omelet, I [...]

Inside MoCa

I’m prepping my mobile office in hopes of taking my first trip. Unfortunately, my trip is delayed because I found out the transmission on the mobile cabin is slipping. Not wanting to damage it, I decided to put it in the shop to have the transmission tended to. Yep, that’s an expensive tending, but I’d [...]

County Fare Restaurant in Wappingers Falls NY

County Fare

We recently visited the County Fare restaurant located in the Village of Wappingers Falls, NY. What a lovely little establishment. When we first walked in it reminded me of the television show bar/restaurant Cheers, except the layout is a bit different.  The bar is on the right, and there’s dining to the left and back. The [...]

1999 Chevy Conversion Van Repairs

Chevy Conversion Van Repairs

One thing I’m learning is if you want to use a 1999 Chevy Conversion van as a mobile cabin, you have to keep it running properly. The upkeep is much less expensive than the upkeep of a house. But, if you don’t do things right, you can cost yourself a lot of money. The other [...]

Coleman 4-in-1 Table

Now that I have the Coleman cook top, I needed a camping table to put it on. What better table than a Coleman camping table. The only problem is there are so many different types and configurations of camping tables that a gal can become overwhelmed. To prevent table overload, I had to stop and [...]

Thermik Cooler

Now that I have my mobile cabin, I’m slowly preparing it for my traipsing around road trips. One of the must-haves when taking an extended road trip is a cooler. Or, if not a cooler something to keep the food cold. I didn’t want to purchase and install a refrigerator because currently, I don’t know [...]

Cooking with Coleman

In preparation for traipsing around in my mobile cabin, I purchased a Coleman 2 burner classic propane camping stove.  What I like about it is it’s inexpensive, light-weight, portable and functional. Having never used an outdoor propane stove before, I made sure to read the directions thoroughly. There’s something about propane that invokes every cautious [...]

1999 Chevy Express 1500 – My Mobile Cabin

Chevy Conversion Van

I’m now the proud owner of a 1999 Chevy Express 1500 Conversion Van, my mobile cabin! Everything went according to plan. The only downer is the feelings of the prior owner. It was obvious he really loved this van. He took meticulous care of it. As he was giving me instructions on how things worked, [...]

Getting Closer to Owning My Mobile Cabin

Mobile Cabin

Back in March, I wrote about looking for a mobile cabin. The first thing I needed to do was find a way to finance my mobile cabin. Fortunately, I’m able to cross off the first item on my “to do” list because I found employment. Granted, it’s part-time employment, but it is a start for [...]

Earth Wind and Fuego

When I mention eating lunch at the Underwear Factory, I get the tilted-head, quizzical look. In all honesty, the restaurant, Earth Wind and Fuego is located on the ground floor of the Underwear Factory Building. It shares space with the North River Roasters and Coffee House. I happened upon this delightful eatery because I was [...]
