Spring is Here the Birds say So!

I’ve been feeling a little grounded lately so we know its time to make a change. We’ve been living in our 5th wheel for 324 days now and to be honest it really doesn’t feel much different then living somewhere and paying rent. Yes, in the beginning it was a total nightmare and with us being complete newbies, that really didn’t help much and now things are good, well most everything.

Our new 5ft wheel doesn’t seem to have a very big holding tank for the fresh water at least that’s what I think. Seems like every time I want to take a shower wouldn’t you know it there just isn’t any water, I’ll be completely happy to be hooked up directly to a water source, after all filling the tank takes time which I seem to have very little of these days.

We took a drive over the weekend and visited the Emory Bar RV park just outside of Hope BC and this could very well be our next home for awhile. They have a general store, produce market, gift store, liquor store, ATM machine, gas station, a deli, the cafe, laundromat and even showers plus lets not forget the wifi and satellite TV. Kinda reminded me of a tiny town all in itself then walk across the street and your in heaven with the Fraser river and all of it’s fishing just minutes away.

I do have a question for all of you experienced RV’ers and that is Why do the birds always want to get in through our windows? Everyday there’s at least one bird sometimes two that sit at the window pecking at the glass. I’ve tried everything I can think of to keep them away from the windows and yet it starts all over again the very next day unless it’s raining. As much as I enjoy watching birds this gets annoying over time not to mention the scratches on the window from their little feet as they cling to the window. I don’t recall having this problem last year although it was early summer when we moved into the first fifth wheel we started out living in. Hopefully someone will be able to tell me what to do or even why they think its a good idea to come inside. 

I think we need to hook up and fly the coop so to speak and head down to the river for some good old fashion camping, sit out by the fire, drink some beer and just smell the great outdoors.

After all who doesn’t love rest, relaxation, solitude and just good old fashion peace and quiet. I know that I could sure use a break from everyday life just to bad I can’t take a break from cell phones and computers. I was lucky enough to find a good paying job working from our RV so basically as long as I have cell service and some type of internet I can pretty much go anywhere and camping is on my list. 

That’s about all I have for tonight but as we get more into the summer months along with  trying to find a new place to park the RV this year my posts should get a little more exciting and maybe not as bleak as they were in the beginning of this adventure we chose to embark on.

Christmas came Early this Year

Wow can’t believe that there’s only 52 days left until Christmas Day, where did the year go feels like yesterday that we started this RV living. In fact I can’t believe that I have lasted as long as I have, been doing this now for just over 5 months almost half a year.

We are about to embark on that dreaded season “Winter” and thank god we live here on the coast where most of the time it just rains with very little below freezing or snow. Still though we will have to do some kind of winterizing like maybe skirt around the bottom of the trailer to keep the wind out. I was told by another RV’er to have either an oil based heater or an electric one plus a fan that blows heat too that will help circulate the heat throughout the fifth wheel. Then to make sure that we put heat-tape around all the water lines, sewer pipes even the grey water pipe to avoid any type of freezing better to be safe then sorry in the end. Sounds like a lot of work in such a short time after all it’s already November 2nd not long now and before we know it December & January will be hovering in to take over.

Christmas came early for us this year so now that we spent all of our money there won’t be any point in buying each other gifts this year, can’t get anything that would be any better than a new home. We finally got rid of that old, dry rotted 1995 Rustler and moved up to a 2002 Citation with a slide out which I should mention if your thinking of moving into a RV make darn sure that you get a slide out. That my friends was our biggest mistake trying to live in a small fifth wheel with two adults and a 90 pound dog and trust me when I say it just didn’t work. Now the slide out makes a world of difference it’s like 100% better, there’s room to pass one another, two people can be in the kitchen at the same time, it’s all around that much easier to live with someone in a small space.

Out with the Old & In with the New

We were extremely lucky when we bought the new trailer, having a friend with a huge driveway to park them side by side so that we could transfer everything over was a huge blessing. I was a little bummed that it rained all day and it wasn’t until we had finished that someone on Facebook said “Hey open up one of the awnings between the trailers”, now why didn’t I think of that ugh we could have stayed dry all day. You might think that it shouldn’t take all that long to make the transfer heck even I thought that way until we started that is, who knew that two people could acquire so much crap in just a few short months, it felt like we’d never get finished.

I’m heading back to the bidding sites on Facebook next week, even though the trailers are the same size 26′ long and with the slide out omg we have way to much junk that’s not even worth hauling around with us from site to site. It’s time to let go of the past and move on with the future, we want to drive across Canada in the spring and there’s no way we’re hauling all this with us time to cut it all loose.

It might not be the kitchen your used too but it sure is nice to have that extra room I can’t stress that enough if your going to live in a RV make sure you get a slide out you’ll be thankful in the end that you did. I know that we sure learned early on that we had made a huge mistake actually more than one but there’s no point in complaining about that old rundown trailer anymore than I already have its long gone and we couldn’t be happier. I myself don’t like the bench tables, I guess if you need that extra bed then by all means the bench is the way to go, but we don’t and the free-standing table and chairs works way better for us. I’m even going to put two of the chairs in storage so that we can free up even more space now that I’ve turned the table opposite of what you see here in the pictures. This will allow for either a small bookcase or some type of shelving to go between the table and the couch giving us a little more storage for things like blue-ray movies, family pictures or maybe more important things like extra food or water, we’ll see I haven’t had the time since moving in to actually decide what I should do with that little extra space.

I think we made the right move and even though we’d like to have a much larger fifth wheel we had to get what our truck is capable of towing. That’s another thing you need to consider especially if your leaning towards a trailer instead of a motorhome, how much weight can your truck, car or SUV haul. Our truck is capable of towing 10,000 pounds so our trailer’s dry weight comes in at 8,000 pounds we’re good but we are going to spend the extra money and install airbags just to help our truck out that much more. We could have towed a much larger trailer but after looking at something like 30+ floor plans we just couldn’t break away from the feel of the fifth wheel. There’s just something about a fifth wheel that makes us feel like we are at home, it’s so hard to describe and one day when I have a little more time I’ll go through that with all of you.



This is the heater that I should get for our fifth wheel since it oscillates for wide area heating and even comes with a permanent dust filter which might be great with the dog also staying inside. You just never know what the dog will do when were not home so I’m glad that it exceeds industry safety standards has a tip-over switch & overheat protection.

It’s been raining NO not raining, pouring here the past three days and if our new trailer was ever going to leak like the old one did it would have been during these past three days. I’m happy to report not even the slightest sign of a leak unless you leave the roof vent open like I did the other day. Well that’s about all I have time for tonight I realize that I haven’t written a post in quite sometime but I’m sure you know how that is when life gets the better of you and time isn’t cooperating. I was going to leave you with a farewell video that I took as the Rustler headed out down the driveway but that’ll have to be another day haven’t quite figured out how to get it on my Macbook Pro from my phone, but I will come back and share it with all of you soon, in the meantime thanks for reading.

Winter is Fast Approaching!

Not to sure where we plan on staying over the winter, but it’ll have to be somewhere that we both like as well as central to most everything. We are thinking that it’s time we put down some roots for at least the next six months just in case it becomes a winter wonderland here on the South Coast. Time seems to get away from the both of us and we are going to put some temporary skirting around this old beast for the winter months so best we get on finding a winter home.

I can tell you that our hot water heater is holding up since Scott took it apart and was able to stop the leaking problem, but now the water pump is leaking and with it being under the couch it’s hard to access, that’s something we’ll be working on over the next few weekends. We have already re-sealed the roof and it looks like that worked since last night there was a heavy rain and my pillow didn’t get soaked like before. The fridge is still a piece of crap and never stays lit but that’s okay since we own a little bar fridge and once were hooked to electricity we’ll be using it instead.

buyer beware

When buying a used RV do your homework, we didn’t and now we are living in one rotten rundown home!

The dry rot in the wall is a big thing just noticed a large hole under the one window and I’m fairly certain that one day the entire side of the trailer will fall right off and with our luck being not the greatest right now chances are that’ll happen going down the freeway at some point in our travels, you know about Murphy’s law don’t you?  Some days I sit in here drinking my morning coffee and wonder to myself “what’s keeping the cupboards, microwave and the oven fan from falling” since that’s the side with all of the dry rot, you gotta know that they are attached to the wall somehow.

hole in wall

OMG look at this hole in the wall, it’s above the couch next to the window, only a matter of time before the cabinets are on the floor!

I don’t have a desire to talk to the guy that sold us this trailer, first off he would have known about all the issues and second we were newbies and didn’t know what to look for so as far as I’m concerned he took advantage of us regardless of how good he made the deal sound!

Luckily for us we have learnt a very valuable lesson and when it comes time to dump this trailer (and that’s what were going to do) we won’t be selling it to anyone knowing all the things that are wrong with it, we are not that mean or deceitful. I myself wouldn’t feel very good knowing that I sold this to someone and on their trip the wall fell away from the trailer, but not everyone has a conscious isn’t that obvious. Enough about that can’t do anything about this now except make a mental note to ourselves to never purchase anything ever again from this person!

rotting walls

Just a matter of time before the cupboards and cabinets come apart from the wall and fall to the floor, how much you want to bet this happens hauling it down the road, whenever we stop I take a deep breath before opening the door!

I really wanted to stay the winter at Emory Bar RV Park but that’s not going to happen since they won’t take run down trailers like the one we have, but on a plus note they will accept our dog “Orca” which not all parks will. Finding a RV park without to many rules isn’t as easy as one would think, but hopefully we’ll be able to stay at this one over the winter Brae Island Regional Park situated in Fort Langley, a little more central for Scott to get to work everyday. For me it doesn’t matter where we live over the winter I was lucky enough to pick up a job that I can do from the RV since I’m only dispatching and would only need access to wi-fi and cell service, I added more data to my cell so I’m good to go now as long as there’s a cell signal wherever we choose to be.

That’s about all the news I have these days, things haven’t really bothered me all that much but I think that’s because I’m working again and can get out to see people and have adult conversations. We are down to only the one dog now, found an awesome home for our female over on Mayne Island where she has settled in quite nicely and loves her new family, we still miss Karma but also know it was the best decision for her.

Helping the Homeless, the Right Thing to Do!!!

We were driving around the Fraser Valley yesterday during one huge rain storm and I’ve decided that all of the homeless out there need to have some type of shelter of their own. That way they’ll have a place to get out of the elements, below is an emergency  tent this would be perfect to hand out this year to the homeless, so now I’m on a crusade to supply these, if you’d like to help there’s a donate button on the side of my blog and it will only cost you $10.00 or buy one yourself and give it to someone in need in your neighbourhood.

  • Provides compact emergency protection in all-weather conditions.
  • Retains/reflects back 90% of body heat.
  • Reusable, waterproof and windproof.

Emergency Survival Mylar Thermal Reflective Cold Weather Shelter Tube Tent

It just seems like the right thing to do, even though we live in a rundown trailer with rotting walls we are still able to take shelter from the rain, wind and cold, doesn’t everyone deserve that no matter how small it is?

Things Change In An Instant!

Its been awhile since I’ve had the time to sit down and write, things have changed so drastically over the past month that I’ve run out of time for things that I enjoy like writing my horror stories here, ha ha!

We stayed everywhere we could find a site for the month of July and you’ll see that not all of the places were all that great. The two pictures were taken from our dining room window and if your anything like me you enjoy a little privacy.

20160723_155325

I’m more of a private person this first view above wasn’t for me.

20160724_154253

Now this is peaceful and more like it.

There isn’t going to be anything today that’s bad in fact everything is almost perfect for now anyways. I managed to pick up a full-time job working out of the RV dispatching for a local company and even though I can go into the office if I choose too, most days I prefer to stay at home and work.

We have been staying on a farm for the past few weeks while the owner is away feeding their dog, cats and yes even a funny old donkey, he’s so very sweet. I’m able to have a small amount of time to myself hence the lack of writing lately but hey at least I can’t complain that I’m bored.

20160813_115747

Now this is more like it, peaceful with more privacy then we even need, peach trees on the one side of the garage and pear trees on the other side, life is good this month!

20160813_115733

This old Donkey is so funny and quite vocal when he wants to be.

The RV seems to be on track with everything working as it should except maybe the fridge we still have the problem of it shutting off whenever it feels like and if it happens that it wants to continue working it freezes everything and I mean everything no matter how low you turn it down. Ever try to make a salad with a frozen head of lettuce me either I just threw it away. I’m sure over the next few weeks or months when we have the extra cash lying around we’ll either get the fridge fixed or replace it with another one, right now though we have electric hookup so the bar fridge is the better option for us.

Funny how things can change in an instant for example I got my new job two weeks ago and the hubby quit his job on Friday he starts a brand new job on Monday just that quick. We are staying on the farm until after the September long weekend then it’ll be time to move on again but I’m sure by then I’ll be ready for the next adventure. Not sure if our dog Orca will be coming with us when we leave, he seems to love the farm life and has made some new friends, just wouldn’t be right to cope him up in a RV park.

20160717_172721

Orca is saying “what the heck we’re moving again”

Life is finally starting to come together, yes we tried to get a larger 5th wheel but for some silly reason I think it’s best to wait until we can buy a brand new one that way we won’t be haunted by other people’s junk ever again. This one will have to do until at least next year so hmm I wonder how the winter will affect us both mentally as well as the money, lets hope things continue to be as great as they are now.

20160801_135606

It might be a little to small for living in but we are making it work, here we found a free sani dump at a rest area so decided to have lunch, dump the tank and head out to the side of an industrial road for the night. Told you I’m a little behind this was in July 2016.

We might have got off to a rough start but I think that’s because we had no idea how or even where to go and the fact that it was the start of summer vacation made it that much harder for us. Now we just take each day as it comes and while we are here on the farm we are going to do some work to the RV to get it updated for the winter. I have my eye on a RV park for the winter and even though we can’t get in until October 15th that’s okay, time zips by at lightening speed it’ll be October in no time. Think it’s time for me to do a small load of laundry and get it out on the make shift line we put up, we are learning of new ways to save money now that we’ve come to understand and adapt to this lifestyle.

To be honest I came across this completely by accident one day when I was dreading another trip to the laundry mat. I don’t use it for everything but it sure is handy to have when clean clothes are needed, now if only I could find a new dryer invention instead of hanging the clothes on a line.

Check it out for yourself especially if your like us and live in your RV

Scrubba Portable Laundry System Wash Bag

I save money and wash clothes wherever and whenever I want and when I’m done it folds down to pocket-size so I can just throw it under the bathroom sink. Things are finally coming along for us, it was a lot of trial and error although I do think in the beginning it was more error on our part. I still can’t give up the electricity and water hook ups but have learnt to adapt without cable TV and wifi, for now.

Not as Cheap as One Would Think!

It’s now Wednesday July 20th and with only seven dollars to our name until the next payday, thank goodness that’s in two days, we are out of gas in the truck, the propane is all used up, fortunately for us we still have a tiny bottle for our camping cookstove hey at least we won’t starve. The fridge needs repairing, the hot water heater needs fixing and the insurance runs out on the trailer within the next two weeks.

We’re down a dog, thankfully she went to a good home with people who can give her more than we ever could from a fenced yard, to all the attention she will ever need or want. Plus I bet they have extra money lying around to even buy her food to survive on.

These past two months have been a total nightmare and I don’t know maybe it’s just me from sitting in less than 300 square feet day after day that has turned me into the person I’m not liking. Today even the hdmi cord broke for the TV and now the android box isn’t working at all, the AC only works for part of the day then it starts to blow off hot air so I always end up switching it to the fan sometime before night falls.

Not one good thing has happened in the past two months that I can even think of since every time I turn around we are without something or another thing has broken going on the list. We have to move this week, Saturday to be exact and at the time of writing this we still have no idea where we are going, every RV park that I called today is booked solid and most say until at least the end of August or middle of September. Life for me at least has sucked big time over the past few months and even though I pick up the hubby and drop him off allowing me to get out twice a day I still have one more dog and can’t do anything with him in tow. Oh wait I forgot there is no money, this living in a RV has become more expensive than when we were renting at $1250 a month at least when we knew what we needed to pay and could save for it.

I’m quite convinced that it’s time to call this an adventure that turned into a horror movie and move back to reality. I’m thinking it won’t be long before I completely lose it and do something drastic, never in my life have I experienced all of this turmoil one bad thing after the next!!! Don’t even get me started on how different each RV park is, omg who knew that they would have nothing in common and all run with their own set of rules.

Some have the no dog rule, other’s have the rule that if your RV is older than ten years they won’t take you, some only take small dogs, some take big dogs but then have a specific breed that’s not allowed, it just goes on and on making my head spin. Maybe that’s why I’m in a depressed state tonight after talking to something like eight RV parks and listening to rule after rule it’s a wonder I can still function. Do I have regrets you bet I do, I’d give anything right now to be paying rent, utilities, cable and still working my un-meaningful job but hey that’s just me and I gotta say this is the lowest I’ve ever been in my life and having no purpose has got to be the worst feeling in the world next to someone who I care about falling ill or becoming deceased.

That’s about all I have to say this week and none of it was very good, in fact this entire post is me venting my frustration over this so called easy, stress free, simple RV living. I leave you with one of my favourite pictures that I took a few years back and trust me when I say that’s just how I feel right now.

Like bacon frying in a pan!!!

Feels Like I’m Drowning in Hot Water!

That’s right things are going from bad to worse and I’m thinking it might be time to throw in the towel… Wouldn’t you know the hot water heater sprung a leak yesterday more like a river than a leak and now that’s right NO hot water!

hot water tank

What does a RV hot water tank look like, not very big but does the job if it’s not pouring out on the ground!

I wanted a shower so bad, my hair was in need of a good wash and I hate when it starts to look all yucky, not to mention I had to go out in public to meet up with a few women that I didn’t even know. You know what they say about first impressions and how that’s important, crap didn’t want them thinking WOW she doesn’t wash her hair.

I took to the internet and must have watched over 20 how to videos off YouTube, I wanted to see if I could do a quick fix just so at the very least I’d have clean hair. Some I turned off immediately, some just dragged and dragged no interest there and some well they didn’t even resemble our 5th wheel at all. Then I did a google search and found a view forums that started to make sense, I’m not much for reading but having clean hair was important.

hot water tank plug

First I read check the hot water plug to see if it’s leaking, that’s the little brass looking screw thing in the picture, guess what it wasn’t, good to know I was thinking to myself, although maybe it should be replaced too

Onward I proceed to read, but I should warn all of you it just sounded like a lot of bla bla to me but I was so desperate to wash my hair I had to keep reading. I don’t even consider myself the hands on type of person and usually leave this kind of crap to the hubby, but he was at work. Then it happened would you look at that steps to fixing a hot water tank leak and even in terms I can understand and accomplish sounds simple enough.

hot water pressure release valve

This is where the river of water is coming from it’s called the “Hot Water Pressure Relief Valve” and look easy to read and understand instructions, should I feel lucky or maybe I should wait before getting all excited

Step 1 – Turn off the water heater, this was an easy step since it was already off after finding that it had a leak, I’m not that incompetent.

Step 2 – Turn off incoming water supply, ha ha another easy task since the water supply is coming from the garden hose even a child can figure that one out.

Step 3 – Open the closest hot water faucet in the RV, for me this means the one in the kitchen but only because it’s the closest to the hot water tank.

Step 4 – Pull handle of the pressure temperature relief valve straight out and allow the water to drain until it stops, this one had me a little baffled in the beginning but hey straight out how hard can that be.

Step 5 – Allow pressure temperature relief valve to snap shut, now turn on water supply and close faucet, okay the last two were simple but the snapping shut part I don’t think that really happened and seriously not even sure what that even means since I had to push the valve back down where it was originally at when I started all of this.

Now for the Big Test – Did I Manage to Fix the Leak!

Once all was said and done I came back into the RV and turned on the hot water tank it’s not rocket science after all it’s just a switch under the kitchen sink.

hot water switch

Turning on the hot water simple to do with this switch

I went back outside to check for leaks and wouldn’t you know there wasn’t one at least not yet anyways. I ran out of time doing all of these steps so in case you’re wondering yes I went out with my hair still looking and feeling yucky!

Couple Hours have Come and Gone!

I was pretty excited thinking that I had fixed the hot water leak problem and was sure looking forward to that hot shower and finally feeling like a normal person again. Wasn’t that a short-lived dream, turned on the hot water tank, waited 30 minutes for the water to heat up, got into the shower and turned on the water. Oh My God I yelled at the hubby the dam water is cold and I hate water at the best of times more so if it’s cold. Well wouldn’t you know it all the hot water went right out of the tank and onto the ground leaving me with nothing but ice-cold water and a very pissed off attitude!

Now I’m fit to be tied and have virtually no way of washing my hair, hubby as sweet as he is offers to boil me some water, can you see it now me washing my hair with hot boiled water there’s an emergency room visit waiting to happen. Then I remembered we have a close family friend that not only lives alone (he’s single & cute ladies) but is only five minutes away from us so I call him up and ask for a quirky favour “Hey can I use your shower“, thank goodness he was home and didn’t have any plans.

The Pitfalls from Living in a RV!

People rarely talk about the bad side of anything or maybe when I was searching living in a RV only the good things came up, not really knowing but let me tell you things are not as glamorous as one would think. I’m not in very good spirits these days and seem to be bordering on having a mental breakdown or so my doctor says, and quite frankly I’m inclined to agree with him.

The Isolation is the Worst!

I have been feeling so lonely these past few weeks that there are days that I just want to die. I can’t go anywhere unless I take the dogs and leaving them in a hot vehicle not an option, so here I am stuck with two dogs 24/7 that weigh in at 100+ pounds each, am I complaining you bet I am. I can’t even leave them unattended in the RV unless it’s raining and around 14 degrees and even then that’s usually early mornings around 5am, what’s there to do at that time of the morning absolutely nothing, that’s what!

Seems all I can focus on is crying and holy crap seems that’s all I do these days! There’s not just one thing that gets me going it can be anything like every time the fridge shuts off, oh I should mention it’s off as I write this, what a surprise – not!

Seems I have no reason to talk to family or friends on the phone anymore after all what do I have that’s new to say, nothing that’s what, just the same old crap day after day!

The Expense is Outrages!

When researching living in RV’s people would say how much cheaper it is and how they were saving money, now there’s a joke! The expense is far more greater then you would expect especially at this time of the year. RV parks for example charge anywhere from $240 – $300 a week and that’s if you want the full hookups, which why wouldn’t you since you have a trailer thats suppose to have all the amenities to keep you comfortable like your still living in a conventional home. I should also mention that the majority of the RV parks that I’ve talked to over the past month and half won’t take RV’s over 10 years old, WOW now what are we suppose to do, this piece of crap is something like a 1998, yes I called it a piece of crap why – because it is!

To Old for the Parks – Now What!

Don’t get me wrong there are a few RV parks that will actually take in this 5th wheel, not all parks are that picky and you’ve seen from my past posts that we have stayed in a few. If your considering living in a RV my suggestion do your homework, find a RV park that you like or even a few of them and ask millions of questions and do this before you give up your life as you knew it. I’m the first to admit that we jumped into this with both feet and never once took the time to research the bad side of living in a RV, and if we had this one were living in would never have been considered an option!

Has Anything Changed After We Moved!

You bet it has and not for the good either, do I regret this decision that we made so hastily hell yes I sure do! If given the option to return back into the normal way of living would I – you bet I’d be the first to say yes!

Let me do a re-cap and write the pros and cons and then you be the judge, bet you’d be on my side and want to return back to a normal life.

Living the Normal Way versus RV Living!

Pros/Cons

  • The dogs had their own fenced yard, they felt safe, came and went between the house and yard on their own. Now I have to find a home for our female because she simply hates moving around and most of the time refuses to even get in the truck. Plus they live on a leash now and don’t have the freedom that they were used to, is that fair I think not!
  • I had a job, maybe not the best one out there but it allowed me to get out and meet people, talk with people, mingle in society and yes even bring in a second income.
  • When I wanted to shower I just went and had one, didn’t have to worry about the tank being full, like today for example woke up wanting a shower but its not going to happen – why – the dam tank is full!
  • We used to go out for dinner twice a month, now we can only grab take out and eat it back at the trailer, you know why already the dogs.
  • The fridge makes me cry, every time I buy meat it shuts off and everything defrosts I’m so sick and tired of spending money only to cook everything in one day! Yes I realize that can happen with a regular fridge buy hey that’s what landlords are for.
  • Don’t even get me started on the one side of the trailer where it’s nothing but dry rot to the point where the siding could fall completely off (no wonder the RV parks don’t want us in there) it’s held on by duct tape, yes you read it right duct tape! Now we’re facing the mold in the walls and with me having bad lungs it’s just not worth the risk. Hey did I mention the ant hill inside the dry rot wall, that’s right ants they are everywhere and I swear if I get bit by one more I’m going to snap! This would be a landlords responsibilty when it comes to the mold and dry rot just not to sure about the ant infestation.
  • Laundry is another factor I should mention, we used to wash/dry clothes weekly but now first we have to find a laundromat then one of us has to sit there while the clothes are being done, can’t be both of us, you remember we have the dogs!

Am I Happy – Do I Sound Happy!

I can honestly say I’m not happy, haven’t been for the past few weeks for the first time in my life “I don’t know what to do” I don’t even know how to go about fixing things. It’s easy for people to sit and say ha ha you have nobody to blame but yourselves and you could very well be right. I thought you should know that the RV life is not easy, it’s not fun (unless your camping for a week or two) and it’s not for everyone!

There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you've had enough
