I just learned a dear friend of mine has passed away. Ron McDowell was my emergency contact person for my SPOT services. He also helped me install my roof platform and my solar and t.v. antenna when I first set up my van. Here are photos I took while visiting him in TX and doing all the initial work. Ron… we will all miss you.

In the horrid Texas June heat, Ron hung in there with me – he was the very best supervisor ever.

Mutt (Katie’s dog) loved that Monkey, a gift from Ron.
RIP Ron… you are loved and will be greatly missed.
