Ten Things I’ve Learned About Living In An RV — 21 Comments

  1. Once again — YOU ROCK! But I feel I must ask… WHY do you have all those little bottles of extract in the first place??? That seems to imply baking and WE DO NOT BAKE. Things are baked FOR us.

    • Bottles? What bottles? Oh, you mean those bottles! What did I think you were talking about? Oh, nothing, never mind.

      Yes, I do love to bake and my new RV even has an oven! (Haven’t used it yet, though.) Bu you couldn’t be more right – things SHOULD be baked for us. However, my cat can’t work the oven so it’s left to me. *sigh*

      • By the way, your adventures have earned you a title on my Royal Court — you’re now the National Park Service Director, so just fire any ranger who gives you shit!

        • Thank you Love! That’s probably the best title I’ve ever had πŸ™‚ I kind of like rangers so maybe instead of firing them I could offer a little quid pro quo. πŸ™‚ hehehee

    • So sorry I forgot to post pics with this! I’ve just added some. I hope it all works out as I’d like! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Darlin’! I do have some small bakeware, and made my first cake last night! I could use more, but then again, I don’t know where I’d put it all! I love the collapsible dish drainer though. Might have to get me one!

  2. So was the neighbor how helped you with your sewer problem cute and single at least? Maybe a budding romance will form over your stinky issue. That would be a story for the grandkids!! πŸ™‚

    • LOL He would certainly like that, but no. He’s not my type (he’s looking for someone who’s dependent on him… I’m SO not that gal!) However, I’ve since had a second sewer problem – and a super cute gentleman, and more mature than the first, offered assistance. Trying to find out if he’s married (‘has family and a house in Oregon’ – but only talked about his two grown daughters, not a wife. Hmmm.).

      Oh, no grandkids for me unless “he” comes with them. I’m not having any two-legged kids of my own, only the four-legged and furry kind. πŸ™‚

    • That’s a good point – the cleaning does go relatively fast. I cleaned and polished (LOTS of wood surfaces) the whole place in about two hours yesterday. Then tackled a new sewer problem, and after thoroughly washing my hands, had my first dinner guests over.

    • LOL About 20 miles round trip to the weigh station, the dealership and back to the RV park. Should be leaving for BlogHer on Wednesday, but the wee one needs an emergency trip to the vet today. We go in at 4:30. If the news isn’t good, I don’t go to BlogHer πŸ™

  3. Thank you for the great article! I really understand tip number 8. With so little room, even the smallest of items feel like they take up all the space. I would like to offer one more tip, always plan some entertainment. There can be lots of down time between attractions. When you’re in a Wal-Mart parking lot, there isn’t much to do. We always bring our Tailgater Portable Satellite system from my TV provider/employer, DISH Network. Its just 10 pounds and very compact. We can take it anywhere and set our TV in just minutes, it finds its signals automatically.

    • You’re most welcome! And thank you for the tip. If there’s one thing I’ve got covered – it’s entertainment! I’m not much for watching TV, but have an antenna system as well as wiring for satellite in case I change my mind.
