Addendum: I decided adding a couple of pics would be interesting, so here they are:

What do you do if you are in a state that is susceptible to hurricanes and/or tornadoes? I know you can handle snow and some rain in your RV but what about the scary stuff...what do you do? I guess a hurricane gives a lot more warning but tornadoes don't.

Every single time after we get the RV all hooked up, and ready to roll. . .
we take a moment, and ask the Lord to send angels of protection
to camp round about us, and to protect those on the road with us. . .
So many times, when things have happened, as they always will. . .
it has been at an opportune moment in time. . .
at a place where we could pull over safely.
Once again, today, God in His infinite wisdom and mercy. . .
allowed us to get the rig all the way into the RV Park. . .
in fact, we were backing the rig into the space when the power steering went completely out!
It ends up being a very minor fix. . .thanks again Lord. . .but we could see where a hose was
spraying fluid out. . .and driving it to the repair shop didn’t seem like such a great idea. . .
and. . .that’s why we pay for roadside service. . .so here they are. . .hooking us up.
Since our truck is now 11 years old, we expect these types of minor inconveniences. . .
this time it’s an elbow in the power steering line, that rubbed against something,
and caused a hole. . .go figure.
We are teaching a ministry workshop in Austin this weekend. . .about two hours away.
Not sure why we needed to be delayed in our departure. . .
but age, wisdom, and a lot of hard knocks,
has taught me that God knows the reasons. . .so we’ll just go with the flow. . .
say a prayer that we will be a blessing this weekend!

Do you ever overnight at "Travel Centers," you know truck stops, and what has your experience been?

After three years of moving all the coffee supplies off the counter
every time we move. . .I finally gave in. . .
and decided to velcro them down. . .
Here’s why I am trying it. . .Dave is teaching classes all over the state this winter. . .
so we are going to be moving a lot. . .and often.
I decided it will be just as easy to pull them loose and clean ever so often,
as it is to move them back and forth. . .if I hate it. . .
I’ll just take it all loose and go back to the old way. . .
What do you think?

living full time in my 36' fifth wheel now......thinking about staying
in it for retirement....just had some questions about routine
I received the email above from a new RV’er. . .
thought they posed a great question. . .and wanted to get your thoughts.
Routine maintenance of course includes the daily cleaning you would do even in your house. . .
and then there’s the wash job the outside needs ever so often. . .
washing the bugs off the front is an almost every trip chore!
We wax ours about once a year. . .yuck!
Empty the black tank once a week, and do a back flush. . .
that keeps the yuckies, and the smellies down. . .
Window washing and cleaning is constant, as is dusting. . .
there’s no end to the dusting. . .where does it all come from?
I keep most routine maintenance chores listed on my Google Calendar,
so the reminders pop up as needed. . .
Not really a maintenance issue. . .but keep a Travel Journal. . .
I also do this on my Google Calendar. . .
sure makes it nice when you want to remember where you were and when!
Wish I would have started this at the beginning of our travels. . .
I’m slowly going back and adding in all our trips. . .
I’m sure there are tons more tips. . .what do you think. . .any ideas to add?
Hubby checks the batteries, and adds distilled water on a regular basis. . .
every three months or so. . .same with the hot water heater. . .
you gotta clean it out, or it will fill up with gunk.
Add bug screens to your furnace and hot water heater vents. . .
they are cheap, and will prevent dirt daubers from building a nest (we know this from experience.)
I’m sure there are tons more things that I’m not thinking of at the moment. . .
what would you recommend. . .any ideas?

I’m uploading and organizing pics from the past . . .
20 disks down and 100 more to go. . .don’t think I’ll finish today!
anyone remember these little gems?
here’s my handy dandy external floppy disk drive. . .
I’d certainly entertain ideas on how to speed up the process. . .LOL!
