Sprained ankle over the Holidays

If you know me you know I am accident prone. Yesterday I decided to fall down the RV steps. Brent Colquhoun said he’s never seen anyone fall down steps in slow motion before. Lol I guess I should be proud. Luckily nothing broke, sprain the ankle and pulled the tendon plus bruised up, but i will survive and others got amusement out of it, what more could I ask for?
In other news not much going on, we are excited to have a nice visit with our dear friend Donna for the Holiday. We will be picking up some trees to plant here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun .

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.

Growing the business at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun

The hardest part of starting a new business, especially something as unique as what we are doing, is getting your name out, getting people to know you are legit. We have come a long way so far already, as we grow we hope to keep adding and advancing. Building an enclosed stage, a deck over the blue moon. Finish the shower,more solar, plant trees, have gardens.

It’s all a process that takes more time than is sometimes available, but when it’s shared as an experience to others it makes it worth while.

War against the winds

Winds are our biggest difficulty out here. We do have plans to help block the winds, build premit structures but its a slow process.

Later in the season we will be planting trees, Pinions, Cedar and Juniper to help create wind blockage.
