  • Maintenance and Repair Resources
    • Here I've gathered some sources of information and replacement parts.
  • How to Seal Leaks
    • Yes, Airstreams can leak. All motor homes and travel trailers can and probably will leak as they age. Here's a bit of information I've gathered as I begin trying to understand where and why Airstreams leak and what to do about it.
  • Hobnobbing with Brigham Young
    • "I hesitated a little about accepting the invitation because I didn't know how many of the Mrs. Youngs I might be presented to and I wasn't looking as handsome as I always liked to when going into the company of ladies."
  • Transcript of Barack Obama's Speech on Race and Politics
    • The following is a full transcript of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's speech on race and politics delivered in Philadelphia PA on March 18, 2008.
  • How I Brew My Coffee
    • My friend Carol suggested some time back that I try coffee from Porto Rico Importing Co and what a great suggestion it was. These people have been in business a long time and offer good, fresh, coffees, roasted the day of shipment.
  • Food
    • Good, nutritional food underpins a healthy body. Much of what is sold as food today is no more than the 1960's Popular Science view of our future of meals in a pill. There have to be better ways to eat and thrive.
  • John's Pretty Good Oatmeal
    • My aversion to oatmeal has stuck to me as tenaciously as mother's oatmeal stuck to my ribs back in the day. I'll bet you remember the stuff - a glutenous glob sitting in a puddle of milk with some brown sugar tossed on it. Ughh!! It's taken over 50 years of eating some pretty bad oatmeal to get up the gumption to overthrow mothers presence in the kitchen and make oatmeal my way.
  • Placebo Effect, Homeostasis, and Health Management
    • Here's an excerpt from an excellent talk with research psychologist Nicholas Humphrey at Edge.
  • CoxonTool
    • Originally I set this site up as a venue for selling tools I wasn't using any more. That's where the name comes from. At the time I was a craftsman, cabinetmaker, and carpenter. I'm retired now and that stuff is gone but I kept adding pages relating to my interests.
  • Electrical System Upgrades
    • I'm gradually upgrading the electrical system in my 1992 Lazy Daze 26-1/2 MB Class C motorhome. I had naively assumed the generator would be used to charge the house batteries and was quite taken aback to learn otherwise. This discovery lead me to consider making extensive electrical system upgrades and I've decided to devote a separate page to them here.
  • My Lazy Daze
    • I bought a nice 1992 Lazy Daze 26-1/2MB Class C motorhome I plan to use for snow-birding and perhaps full-timing if I find the lifestyle works for me.
  • Some Useful information
    • Here I'll be collecting useful information, specs on my Lazy Daze RV, resources, sources of supplies etc.
  • A Tale of Two Leaks
    • Woe is me. My precious Lazy Daze is leaking again. Last fall I discovered two leaks in my 1992 Lazy Daze Mid Bath RV. I sealed this - I sealed that. The leaks, they go on leaking.
  • Conditioning and Preserving Leather
    • The natural oils in leather serve to lubricate the fibers and resist the penetration of water. These oils evaporate or are washed out over time and need to be replaced to keep the leather strong and supple.
  • Hardening leather
    • Hardening leather is fairly simple. Here are links to a couple of articles describing the process.
  • Braided Leather iPad Grip
    • Like its predecessors, the new 3rd generation iPad is a slippery beast to handle. The design is sleek and gorgeous but feels slippery in hand. None of the covers and cases I found pleased me. I wanted something that would make the 'pad easier to hold while honoring the clean lines of the naked iPad. Something in leather of course. An "iPad Grip".

  • Power-Trac PT-1845 Articulated Tractor
    • Early in 2002 I started searching for a replacement for my aging and never very satisfactory International 484 utility tractor with Bush Hog mower and Westendorf loader. That search eventually led me to the innovative Power-Trac articulated tractors and the PT-1845 model in particular.
  • Comparing the PT-1845 to the PT-1445
    • After the fire in the engine compartment of my Power-Trac PT-1845 I debated whether to replace the PT-1845 with another model. This page is a collection of information I gathered to help me decide which way to go. In the end I decided the PT-1845 was the right model for my needs and that I could rebuild the tractor.
  • PT-1845 Replacement Parts
    • On this page I'm compiling parts information, part numbers and sources for my Power-Trac PT-1845.
  • PT-1845 Repairing Loss of Steering Input
    • At one point on my Power-Trac PT-1845 tractor I was having trouble with the hydraulic steering. Here's what I found to be the problem.
  • PT-1845 Upgrades and Improvements
    • My Power-Trac PT-1845 has proven to be a wonderfully productive and versatile tractor but like many products it has its weak points. Here are some improvements I've made to it.
  • Alternative Home Cleaning Solutions
    • In an effort to cut down the number and toxicity of the chemicals I use around the house, I've stocked up on a few safe, simple ingredients that will handle most cleaning tasks.
  • Digital Photography Information
    • I've had an interest in digital photography for some time. I use this page to collect bits of information about digital photography and links to useful sites.

    • This page is a collection of links to sources of metals, metal working tools and supplies, and machine shop tricks and tips I've come across.
  • Plumbing Fixtures Online
    • Here are some companies selling plumbing faucets and fixtures online. I located these while searching for a source of clawfoot tub faucets some time ago. I haven't dealt with any of them so I can't comment on their service.
  • Operating Propane Appliances Safely
    • Approved and properly adjusted appliances are very important. Improper flame adjustment (which you can detect by a yellow flame at the burner tip) is dangerous. With adequate ventilation, an operating burner gives off mostly harmless products such as carbon dioxide and water vapor. However, a propane appliance starved of oxygen can quickly produce dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide and may result in asphyxiation.
  • Changing Propane Cylinders
    • Procedure for changing propane cylinders.
  • Propane Two Stage Regulators
    • National code requires a two-stage regulator on RVs. The second stage of the regulator receives a relatively uniform pressure from the first stage, which helps the second stage maintain appliance pressure at a nearly constant 11" W.C. A two stage regulator also greatly reduces the possibility of freeze-ups.
  • Information about drinking water
    • Here I'm collecting links to online sources of information about public and private drinking water supply standards, system design information and safety issues.
  • Starcraft Truck Camper
    • In 2004 I stumbled on this old Starcraft truck camper in the back of an RV dealer's lot and I thought I might rebuild into a mobile jewelry studio. That idea soon fizzled. I got about as far as you see in the pictures and abandoned the project.

We Are Clearly a Species Worth Saving

Our world is entering a time of profound and perhaps catastrophic change. My hope is that by getting people to care about and learn about what is in their backyard, they can be made to realize that while it seems like we are destroying the planet in out greed and excess, what we are really destroying is ourselves. The planet and life in general has dealt with catastrophe many times before. Cataclysm on Earth is a creative time and evolution can handle it. Culture is much more fragile and we as individuals are more fragile still. I think that it is time for people to come to terms with the fact that our own behaviors put humanity at risk. While people have always done atrocious things, I believe that we are a species capable of beautiful, amazing and important things as well and we are clearly a species worth saving.
