|The Hot Springs LTVA|
When you wake up in the morning and you instantly know that feeling of happiness, there is nothing which can change that. And today it was such a day. The sun was shining out of a blue sky and after having a wonderful breakfast and had SKYPE-chatted with a friend in Norway, I was heading off to the Hot Springs. A hot shower and then into the tub. Aahhh...Gorgeous. Looking up into the deep blue sky and the palm trees (I just love palm trees) the feeling of completeness even intensified.

After all that resting I got the urge to get into some activity. The coach needed an outside clean-up. In fact, the grime on the rear was so bad that the sponge I used for washing instantly turned black. I had siphoned off a few liters of water from our fresh water tank, but wanted to do more later in the afternoon. Checking the level of fresh water, I realized that there would be room for about 40 gallons. So I collected the plastic bladder and our water hose from the basement and drove the 8 miles to town. We can get town water at the dump place and pay 2 bucks for 40 gallons. That is not too bad, and it also contains a bit of chlorine which is good for keeping the tank sanitized.
The bladder I got, can be transported on the roof of the Jeep without any tie-downs. It is so heavy that it won't slide off, unless you drive like Michael Schumacher, which I rarely do.
Those 40 gallons sure filled up our 100gal. tank again and with the left-over water I washed most of the rest of the bus.

Bea is already busy in the kitchen department and maybe it will be on her blog what we have for supper tonight.
Have a wonderful evening everybody and thanks for stopping by.
