I began the process of getting Tortoise ( the RV ) ready to hit the adventure road. I envy those who live in warmer climates and don’t need to winterize their RV. I’ve been making a To Do list, hoping I don’t forget some task. Bleaching the water system to remove last fall’s camper anti-freeze, seems to be the easiest thing to remember. A harder aspect of the dewinterization process is remembering the things I brought home from the RV, that need to get put back. Pots, pans, sheets, towels, blankets; the list keeps expanding. I have this fear that I will forget some important thing, only to learn about it when in the wilds of Joshua Tree National Park.
The urge to hit the road is strong. I want to rush the process along. As I look at the last trip, I remember that I forgot to bring the dog’s poop bags. At the only store in town, I found the last pack of dog bags. They were baby powder scented and my jacket pocket still smells like it. But I won’t forget Aria’s supplies this time. Thinking about supplies, do I have RV toilet paper? Wouldn’t want to venture far without that!
The journey begins again.
