Snowy Day here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun

This winter we finally got a little bit of snow! It’s very pretty, but we are glad it only lasts a day or so.

This morning I let the dogs out, thinking they wouldn’t stay out to long.. But nope the boys (Dreugan and Amigo) don’t want to come in, not even for breakfast. Weillow (Our 12 year old) on the other hand couldn’t get back in fast enough.

So now I sit here, work on a few Plateau Hame De Colquhoun things, drink some coffee and wait for the boys to let me know when they want in.

Today is one those days we are winging it on what we do. We want to go to Albuquerque and pickup few things for JAFO Productions and would also like to return a Masters propane heater we bought at Tractor Supply Co. .

We wanted a heater with a more Btu for the RV, and use the Buddy heater in the Greenroom or the Studio when we are in them. So we bought a 18,000 btu Masters, but it isn’t working right. It will ignite but after 15 minutes it shut off, then nothing.. We’ve changed tanks, tried it in different locations, blew it out. It Ignited and ran for a couple hours, then shut off, now won’t light. Even letting it sit for 12 hours . We are thinking the Thermocoupler is bad. If it was something we had for awhile we’d fix it, but we haven’t even been able to use it.

Music in the Desert at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun, JAFO Productions

Amigo hung out with us while playing a little bit of music for the neighbors. Nothing can beat some nice music and watching the sunset over the Ladrones while being in the middle of the desert.

Dreugan taking a Drive

We needed to run into town, but none of us felt like driving.. Dreugan stepped up and drove us in. He just turned 2 on Jan 1st and feels he’s old enough. He isn’t too bad at driving as long as he doesn’t see squirrels, dogs, cats, cattle, horses, balls, any moving objects, kids, food.  He doesn’t come to a complete stop at a red light but certainly paws.

Happy 2nd Birthday Dreugan!

Dealing with the cold at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun

Mornings have been a bit chilly here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun , It was 17 outside when we got up this morning… Since we run a buddy heater for our heat, we only tend to run it at night before going to bed and in the morning when we get up. This morning when we got out of the warm bed, it was 30 degrees inside. The dogs wanted out, but Weillow met me with her teeth chattering.. Weillow wears a jacket and crawls up on the couch at night under blankets.. Like us she was probably warm until she had to go to the bathroom.

We can run the heater all night and probably will if we feel it’s going to get cold. Cold to us is when it doesn’t warm up during the day. Usually our days warm up enough to warm the inside of the RV nicely, we open windows and doors to get the heat in, but before it starts to cool off we shut everything down to trap in the warmth. We tend to stay at an even temp (depending on outside temp) until around 9-10 pm.. If we plan on staying up a bit we kick on the #buddyheater until we are ready for bed or it warms up. We do this as we feel safer, and save on propane even though we have smoke and Co2 detectors, sleeping with the heater off.. In the morning the first to wake up turns on the heater.

We had talked about doing wood, but if you’ve ever seen any of our photos trees are pretty sparse, and the cost of wood isn’t worth it.

What have you used for heat. Comment below and let us know.

Happy Veterans Day!! 2023 Haunted Hell Ride

Happy Veterans Day, we thank all the veterans for serving and supporting us!

Not much has been happening here, had a few campers and getting a few things ready for a neighborhood Turkey Day.

We have started to work on next year’s Haunted Hell Ride.We had good reviews from the Hell Ride this year, it did better than we expected, especially being our first. We have learned a few things that we hope to incorporate into next year’s Hay ride. Date is set, though been debating doing one or two nights?

If you’d like to learn more about us here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun and what we do, please visit our website, message us or leave a comment.

We hope you enjoy a few seconds of Dreugan and Amigo playing!

Cleaning, clutter and getting ready for travel day

I would love to know how individuals keep their RV from being cluttered.. Something we have not accomplished.. Sure few things we can down size, and we do often.

Living in a tiny place with 2 full time humans, 1 part time, 3 full time dogs, a cat and a part time dog does make it hard to keep things organized. But we love it even when unorganized and cluttered..

Ignore the vacuum, cleaning supplies in the photos, I am still cleaning and took a break to post. The RV is about ready to move, no matter if we sit for a day, week or months, I always have extra cleaning, storing before we move.

Traveling with furry kids

Onto our next stop for the night by Dallas Tx. Dreugan is better today, ate all his food which included a pain pill.. He’s back to whining cause one of the other dogs are in a spot he wants. But yet he can’t decide where he wants to lay. Then Weillow likes to take his spot to piss him off.. Don’t need kids when furry kids #travelingwithdogs
