Time to end hibernation.

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.

  1. Glad you’re getting the Tortoise out and going, Mike! When are you off to Joshua Tree? You’ve already got a head start on the suntan this year! Wondering … is your dad going along as sidekick again?
    Have a wonderful traveling season and take plenty of doggie poop bags and toilet paper!
    Love ya, Cuz! Cyndie A
