The Wild Road Ahead

Abby and I worked on our recently purchased RV for a while tonight. It needs some work, since it is a well-used though well-cared-for vehicle. Tonight we mostly just cleaned out under the seats and beds and decided which pans and atlases and bed sheets to keep and which to throw away. I did crank up the television antenna, but was unable to get any signal. I’m thinking the television might not be hooked up to it.

One reason we were able to do this is that as part of a bigger (and very expensive) visit from the electrician recently, we now have a plug on the garage side of the house just for plugging in our RV. This means we can run the lights, appliances, and, most importantly, the air conditioner, without cranking up the generator.

We brought the dogs with us, of course, and we thought it was pretty funny that Max the Chihuahua managed to move the length of the coach without touching the floor.

I don’t know where our first trip will be, but it is very exciting to start imagining it.

Abby holds a "The Highway" sign we found in one of the numerous storage lockers in the RV; she speculated that the previous owners may have bought it at a flea market or gotten it as a gift.

  1. Very nice. You’re going to need a digital converter or a satellite system for the TV to work. We’re going to camp at camp Doris for the reunion. You consider doing the same.

  2. Yes, an adaptor is in the works, since it appears from last night’s test that the television in it is not digital-ready.

  3. Very exciting indeed. I’ve always thought it would be cool to travel the continent in one of these bad boys… In comfort and style.

    Enjoy. :-)
