The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

What a great idea!  The dogs can go outside, do their business and come back inside with minimal maintenance for humans.

What we did:  install a pet door in our home and a small pen in the backyard.  This setup shows a pet door on the side of our house with a cute ramp and pet porch for the dogs to enjoy the outdoors.  There is a ramp and the dogs can go into our out of their pen area.

Why it’s good:  Since we live in the country and our whole yard is not fenced in, this pen allows our three dogs to go outside and also be protected from anything outside the pen, like stray dogs for instance.  This is a small section of chain-link fencing, some wood for the porch, material to cover the ramp and a dog door.  It is a cost-effective way for the dogs to go outside whenever they want so that we do not have to drag three dogs around on leashes.  Whenever they want to go outside, they can and then they come inside whenever they want as well.

For the pets:  This pet porch allows a nice spot for the pets to rest outside.  The dogs love being able to see what is going on and also lay in the sun on warm days.  They can lay under the porch for shade whenever necessary too.  Because of the dog door, the dogs can also come inside to the air conditioning if it’s hot outside.  Likewise, they can come inside for heat if it is cold outside.  Because there is a grade to the property, the land is uneven under the pet door, which required a few ramps to accommodate.  As you can see, this ramp and porch style works well for us and our pets.

Ease of use:  The dog door is easy to install and has two flaps to protect from the heat and cold getting inside or outside the house.  There is a magnetic flap on the dog door, which help keep it sealed when the pets are on either side of it.  It took less than two days for the dogs to understand that they can easily get through the dog door.

Travel bonus:  Another thing this system as done for our family is that it allows us to go on trips away from home without worrying about our three dogs.  We can leave the pets with plenty of food and water (automatic or whatever) and they can go outside whenever they want.  This is a low-maintenance system as well because it is easy to keep the pen clean.  Once a week, the kids use our gas-powered blower and/or a hose to blow or wash leaves and buildup out of the pen. This way, the area is kept clean for the dogs and they are more encouraged to use the space as it is designed to be used.

Think about the idea of building one of these great low maintenance pet escapes for your home!  It works great for everyone and frees up your time so that you can travel and have happy pets at home.

Here are four great ways to store your stuff:

copyright nachoman-au Two Tabbert T@b caravans on display Wikipedia defines “travel trailer” as: “A travel trailer or caravan is towed behind a road vehicle to provide a place to sleep which is more comfortable and protected than a tent (although there are fold-down trailer tents).[1][2] It provides the means for people to have their own home on a journey or a vacation, without relying on a motel or hotel, and enables them to stay in places where none is available.”

So how can you protect your RV or travel trailer from rain, snow, mildew, wind or mold?

You see them driving all over the freeways, interstates and highways in many states; whether you see travel trailers or RV homes, pop-ups or 5th wheels. People love to travel from cold places like Iowa, Illinois or Wisconsin to warm places like Florida or Georgia in an RV or travel trailer. Have you ever wondered where people store these fine RVs and a home away from home?

A carport or garage, otherwise called an “RV cover” is a great place to keep a travel trailer. An RV fits nicely under an RV cover designed just for that purpose. RV covers should be taller than typical carports and protect the top and sides of an RV so that it does not sustain any water damage or acquire moisture.

 

Let’s face it, we all want to store our travel trailer or RV without it getting that awful and all-too-familiar mold or mildew smell.  So how do I protect my RV?  Well, a metal carport is an important step to protecting your nice investment.  Many places charge to keep your RV parked or to store your RV when not in use.  What if you had a nice cover for the top and sides of your RV?  This way, your RV or travel trailer will not have water, mildew or mold damage.
