Nothings Pumping Here

We have been working for the past week to get water in the house. After we ran the 600 feet of water house and wire and plumbed up the holding tank we discovered after all that the submersible pump didn't work. It was so disappointing. So close to running water than nothing~! I just priced a new water pump and they run over $400 . I guess we will be trying to find a used one this week from a few well drillers this week. If not we will have to put the water on hold for another 3 weeks. It really was depressing. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can find a used one for half the price.

Poison Ivy ~ Can you spot it?

Our family went Geocaching today and just a warning to those of you that love the outdoors and spend a lot of time hiking, geocaching and 4 wheeling. The Poison Ivy here in Maine is every where. We skipped a few Geocach sites when we discovered they were in the middle a of poison ivy patch. My old man is highly allergic to it and 3 weeks ago he walked into a patch while geocaching and didn't notice it until it was to late. Poor guy suffered for 16 days. lol I know I shouldn't laugh but you had to of seen him. The rash you get is very itchy and painful. It can range from mild to severe and every one reacts differently. Here is a link to some of the Pictures I found of rashes from poison Ivy. Some are real graphic.

I really like the Etsy site in this review. I found several special pieces that I would love to own. Check out this review and giveaway by clicking the link in this post.

I was amazed when I read the review "The Dirty Shirt" posted about Eureka tents that have power. Immediately I had to check this out~! lol lol
Going camping is an inexpensive way to go on vacation and we find that usually it cost us less than $50 to go camping for 3 days so why not go once a month right!?! We have found so many free places to camp from Geocaching right in our home state of Maine that we don't even pay for tent camping sites. Just Gas and Food which is around $50 if we stay with in 200 miles from home and pack the normal Hot Dogs , Hamburger and of course marshmallows. We grab the tenting gear (which is in need of replacement from so much use) cloths, camera and GPS and off we go with out making plans on where we are going to camp for sure for the night.
