Whoa. . . hoa. . .well. . .we had our first big learning curve,
with many more to come I am sure. . .
The motorhome had about half a tank of fuel when we parked it. . .
we wanted to use up all the old stuff before we added. . .
‘cause we didn’t know how long it had been sitting. . .
we figured since we would only be here a couple more weeks,
a half tank would be more than sufficient, even if we needed to run the generator.
what we DIDN’T realize is. . .the Aqua HOT water heating system ALSO
runs on diesel. . .a lot of diesel if you want really, really hot water. . .
a half gallon an hour. . .hmmm. . .when you get to 1/4 tank of diesel. . .
no more hot water. . .NOW WE KNOW!
Soooo. . .we got to unhook everything. . .and make a trip for fuel. . .FUN!
Bet we fill up completely before we get to the next spot. . .and you can also
rest assured we’ll only click on those diesel jets when the need arises. . .
otherwise we’ll just run the Aqua Hot on electric. . .which is sufficient
as long as you don’t need too much hot water. . .
but is NOT sufficent for showers. . .AT ALL!
Nothing else exciting happening. . .as you can imagine,
with the high winds. . .limbs, branches and a few trees
down on the hiking paths. . .got those cleared. . .
That’s about it. . .saw the family for Christmas Eve. . .
I’m always thrilled if we can get them all at the same place, same time. . .
very difficult to accomplish with kid’s schedules. . .
Next week we move to Stephen F Austin State Park
where we will volunteer until May. . .
See you there!
