Shopping shopping shopping

Boy the more I look at this road trip the more I drool at the neato skeato “stuff” to have.. I just cannot get over how much RV’ing has changed since our trip in 2004… Technology is a wonderful thing.. and expensive.

  • Tire pressure monitors
  • Solar panels
  • AGM batteries!
  • Area rug to keep our carpet somewhat clean…
  • Shotgun for home protection…
  • Step carpets
  • Carpet to roll out when we camp
  • Plastic dishes versus our current ceramic jobs (weight savings)
  • Wireless printer/scanner/fax that has an autosheet feeder
  • Nortel wireless network instead of Verizon’s.. (20 gig vs 10 gig and cheaper per month)
  • Sky Ranger to pull in those weak wifi signals
  • Tire gauge that can read over 100PSI

Then there are the fun things I need to do like:

  • Wash and wax “Koko”
  • Wash and wax both cars
  • Check the air system in the rig to be sure it has enough hose to get around the rig and that it has the appropriate adaptors for the tires
  • Re-level Koko as it has been sitting for a couple of weeks
  • Start the generator and engine to run a bit
  • Learn how to change out fuel filters (including how to make sure I don’t get air in the lines)
  • Rain X the windshield

Then I can start drooling at the camp sites all over the place… and keep day dreaming about where to go first, and the things to do when we get there.. Hike, cook, swim, dive, meet new folks, have family join… Just puts a cheese eating grin on my face for the day…

Counting down to the exit…. hehe
