We Got Everything Stowed Away

After getting all the wiring of the solar redone, we started to stow things away. It was quite the job, and I’d never thought that we had accumulated that much over the past 4 months. Of course it was another hot day again, but most work was done by noon. Most amazingly, we found room for it all. The last thing was shaking out the green outdoor carpet and stick it into the storage compartment. I also filled up the van with garbage and drove it down to the dumpster. If we would go to an even smaller RV it would mean a major change in life style. Spending the better part of a half year away from home doesn’t come without problems. And it facilitates a minimum RV size. I believe we have reached that size. I mean, after all we were running around the country in a 40ft. motor home last year. And before that in a 37ft Fiver!

So tomorrow we are rolling out of Dodge. If you watch the I-8 between Yuma and Casa Grande you might just spot us heading east.

See ya from a new location!

  1. I've often wondered if we really need all the stuff we haul with us. The answer is definitely no because we never use it all. Safe travels!!!

  2. Every time we get ready to move, I am amazed at how much "stuff" there is to put away. Travel safe you guys and we'll see you next year.

  4. Trick is to get rid of it if you don't use it. But of course, then you'll need it. Ho hum!

    Travel safe.

  5. With my little Sunseeker and traveling as light as I do, it takes me 10 minutes and I'm on the road. Yesterday I, too, was on I-8 and am now sitting in Glendale, AZ. I need my solar installer to fix or replace my solar regulator which stopped giving me digital readouts on Thursday. Hopefully he can see me tomorrow. When it's fixed, I'm heading to New Mexico.

    It was such a pleasure meeting you and Bea and Molly! Travel safe, and hopefully we'll meet again next winter. :)
