Good morning. No drama for us last night. That’s good. It looks like the government passed a budget for a bit longer while we all were sleeping. That’s good for those camping on BLM land and in Corp of Engineer campgrounds. (For many other reasons also, but this blog is only about camping and what goes on in our lives).
It looks like it is going to be a bit nicer today. It will be a good day to get out and do our laundry. I’ve been procrastinating. It’s not my favorite thing to do. I hate spending all that money every week. I miss my washer and dryer. But, when you run out of underwear and turning them inside out isn’t an option, it’s time to go and get it done.
We will need to stop and get groceries too while we are out. Unfortunately there is no milkman to come to the door with your dairy needs. Remember when we used to have a milkman deliver milk, eggs, butter, etc. to your side door a couple of times a week. We had a bread man too. He brought bread, coffee cake, rolls, etc. And, then there was the dry cleaners who picked up dads shirts once a week. Nope, not anymore. The grocery stores are trying to get back to that somewhat, by having you place an order online and driving up to the store for curb pickup. Not my thing. I like to pick out my own items, but I’m sure it’s good for others.
In the park we have seen a number of businesses come through. You can have your motorhome/camper washed and waxed. They come through almost daily. I’m thinking we might have them give Winnie a good scrub when we are ready to leave here to get all the salt from the ocean air off her. We will still need to give her underside a good washing to prevent rust. Up north your vehicles are damaged by the salt from the roads, here the salt from the ocean air does the damage.
Another business we have seen come through here a few times a week is a propane truck. Where was he when we needed him. It’s good to know if we need propane again it is available.
Then there is the mobile RV mechanic who has come through the park a number of times. We are glad we haven’t needed his service, but it is good to know he is available also.
We even saw a mobile vet go through. Not a dog groomer, an actual vet. Now, we don’t understand that one. No one here has horses or cows or other large animals that would be hard to transport. So why a mobile vet. I guess if you have the money, why not.
We don’t mind these business going through the park. They don’t bother you like door to door salesmen. They just drive slowly through like the ice cream truck would do. Nope, haven’t seen one of them or heard their jingle. If the weather was nicer I’d think they would do a booming business.
Enjoying the lifestyle. Have a good day.
Until next time,
