I've been busy reading and getting educated before my "Maiden Voyage" tomorrow. This book has been helpful. I know that my greatest learning will be taking off tomorrow in Olivia and checking into the RV park in Clarkston.
One thing I determined in my reading is that I need to have a surge protector when I plug into the shore line...
My two choices at Camping World were affordable or not affordable, so I went with affordable.
You know how it goes at Camping World...there's always something else to buy that catches your eye, and I wasn't immune to that today. I've been checking Olivia out and I really don't have a lot of storage on the outside. One of the things I need to do when I get to Clarkston, if it's possible, is wash Olivia. When I saw this bucket that folds down to about three inches...
and then expands to a workable size, I decided I needed it. Right now it's out in the garage because the plastic smell is overpowering and I had to get it out of the house. Speaking of washing, where/how do those of you who are like me and can't park their RV at their home do it? Or you full-timers? Where do you wash your RVs?
Since the Camping World closest to me is not that close, I decided to go ahead and purchase a wand for cleaning the holding tanks because I figure I'll have to do that someday.
What's a "Maiden Voyage" without the celebratory bottle of wine...
I think I'm ready. Not true. I still need to load everything onto her tomorrow, then I'm ready. I'm not taking too much stuff because I won't need that much for four days.
I believe that once I'm on the road I'll be ok. It's taking too long to get going and I've had to much time to think. Plus dealing with the sadness and disappointment that I can't take my dog, but I'm dealing with it and I'll be fine. I said on a previous post that it will never be as difficult as the first time. This is the first time. After this, a piece of cake.
Heading for the sunshine,
