Thankful for Freezing Weather???

Never thought I’d say that! But I guess you learn from everything, so thankful I should be!

Here’s a timeline:

  • Wednesday night we hit Reno’s Sports Bar for some food and holiday shenanigans.
  • Got home and forgot to drip the faucet (even though our water hose is heated and insulated, it will freeze if it’s not dripping)
  • 4am Thanksgiving morning – woke up to a frozen water hose… Caught it in time, brought it inside, thawed it out. (It was only frozen at the connection point between two hoses, about a half inch was exposed with no insulation.)
  • Went back to sleep, with the faucet dripping!
  • Made a delicious Thanksgiving feast!
  • Black Friday: woke up to water in the kitchen sink and tub, and a frozen sewer hose!

    Frozen poop tube pieces… 

What I’ve learned:

  • No matter how much fun, or booze, we have: REMEMBER TO DRIP THE FAUCET!
  • When the temperature drops to 2 degrees, or thereabouts, we shouldn’t be camping!
  • Or we should insulate the doggone poop tube as well…
  • One grey tank is for the kitchen sink, and one grey tank is for the bathroom and washing machine.
  • The grey holding tanks have no back-flow preventer, and will back up into both tanks simultaneously if they have nowhere to drain…
  • And finally, roaster ovens are the way to go when Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner in an RV!

Maybe I won’t have to use this cold weather knowledge for quite a while because we might be heading south sometime this week… This whole “getting dark at 4:45pm” is for the birds! Come on summertime!

 

No Shave November… 

My mom got us these shirts! 

Football and food… 

I decorated for Christmas a tiny bit early! 

Our “kitchen table” since our “dining room” is currently housing a Suzuki Katana!

Thanksgiving tradition that I’m keeping alive! Cheers! 

And we will end with little Charlie…
