With the warmer weather arriving, it is time to get Winnie cleaned out and stocked with all her gear. Over the last couple of weeks I was able to do just that with the help of my son Kevin. After wiping out the cupboards, vacuuming and giving her a thorough cleaning (all except steam cleaning the carpet) we were ready to put everything back in her we had stored in totes. I didn’t find any surprises, no signs of any unwanted visitors. I had put dryer sheets in every cubby and place I could find to deter them and keep her smelling fresh all winter. Not sure if that helped or not, but I was happy with the results. As I am not allowed to lift more than 10 lbs., Kevin carried all the totes from the house for me to unpack. I took my time, enjoying every minute of putting items away. I was thinking about the fun we had last year and hoping we will be able to get some camping in soon. All I need now to go are our clothes and food.
We are still hoping to be full-timers this year. It might not be until late fall, but that is our goal. It all depends on how my treatments go and what the final outcome is. We will also have to have the house sold, which we can’t do until I’m better. In the meantime, we hope to get some weekend camping in.
As I mentioned in a previous post we have had some problems with our batteries. We may need to get a couple new ones this year. We also need to have maintenance done on the generator, as our hours are about up. New tires are on the list to buy before we start out full-timing it. We want to keep her in tip top condition for full enjoyment without worries.
It’s a good thing I have a handy son. Our front blinds needed adjusting. Not sure how or why they stopped working, It could have been because of the problems with the battery, but the guys were able to get them working again perfectly.
While we were cleaning out the basement cubbies and checking the rest of the outside Kevin found a birds nest in the slide-out awning over the dinette. We were happy to see it was empty as I would hate to disturb hatchlings.
Happy Easter everyone. We will be enjoying a beautiful day with family at our daughter Melissa’s.
Until next time,
