Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“

well i got the camper floor replaced all thats left is put the water heater back in,it all could have been avoided if they would have just used teflon tape when they put it together on the fittings,also heres the radiator cover i made for moms old cast iron radiator in her house.
