Little House in Winter -- The Beautiful Life

Nick is working on finishing his handmade doors, Sadie is his sidekick, and Esther is (not very) patiently awaiting spring. This life is slow and intense and sometimes frustrating...but it is beautiful. A NOTE TO OUR FRIENDS: Our middle child, Stella, had a bad fall on this day. That's one of the reasons that we didn't upload all weekend. The other three reasons were snow, snow, and snow. Stella fell on the concrete at school and the school staff was very concerned for her. As it turns out she is fine, but she still had a bad day and didn't want to be on video. We went ahead and made a vlog anyway, with the rest of us, and she'll be back in tomorrow's update, just as spunky as ever. And you know I'll get caught up again with uploads someday. :) Thanks for hanging out with us! We appreciate you! -- The potato casserole is another no recipe recipe. Nick is the one making it in this video, but we both make versions of it. If I were making it the gravy might have been a little thicker and I probably would have added corn. I can corn and am always looking for ways to sneak it in. :) Prepare your potatoes and your chicken ahead. We do this to use leftovers, and you can do pretty much the same recipe with pasta or rice instead of potatoes. It is a poor man's food. If you've got a few cups of cooked chicken and nothing else, that's the time. Cut the chicken into cubes and precook your starch (your potatoes, rice, or pasta) and any vegetables you want to add that aren't already soft from being canned or frozen. Then heat up a skillet for the gravy. The gravy starts with equal parts butter and flour in a cast iron pan. I do about 3 Tbsp each. Cook this (the roux) until it is just barely turning brown, stirring constantly. Add 2 cups chicken broth and 2 cups milk, which you hopefully remembered to mix together ahead of time and bring to room temperature. :) Add the liquid steadily, stirring constantly, and keep the gravy over medium heat until it thickens. When it is thick, you can add the rest of the ingredients, including some crushed dry herbs and salt and pepper, stir gently, and throw it in the oven for 20-30 minutes.

02 Our Aliner Camper - "Tin Tent" Camping Tour of America's National Parks

This video series chronicles Bill & Sandy Stine's six-month long, 2003, US camping tour. "Our Camper" summarizes the attributes of our Aliner hard-sided pop-up camper and details some of the custom modifications we made to it. The Aliner is manufactured by Columbia Northwest Inc, 1297 Kecksburg Rd, Mount Pleasant, PA. A similar camper, the Chalet, is manufactured by Chalet RV Inc, 124 41st Ave SE, Albany, OR. We chose the design because it was lightweight and simple and fast to set up and fold down. I found our used camper listed on e-Bay. For us, the trip was not about the camper and we spent few of our waking hours inside it. We liked that it was not a motor home so we could do day trips in the car without having to break camp. We pulled our hard-sided, Aliner-brand pop-up camper, that we call our "Tin Tent", on a 180-day, 100-campground tour of many of the national parks across the US. The entire 15-video series, while briefly describing the camper in chapter 2, is mainly about the places we visited and the things we did. Our full daily activity log with additional photos can be found under the "Tin Tent Tour" link on our home page at All the photos were taken by a humble little Canon PowerShot S410 Digital Elph. Photos were edited using PaintShop Pro 7. Audio was recorded and edited using Roxio Sound Editor and the video was assembled in 9:16, 720p, using Roxio VideoWave 10. you find the playlist of the entire 15-video series at Air conditioner installation is documented on my website at:

After a year on the road in our van, we came back home and decided to spend the winter in an RV.
Let's say it was an interesting experience!
