Three more hours and I will be home from my second trip in the Flying Eddie (our new — old RV)
I have learned much from the first two official RV trips.
(The three times we picked up friends in their homes and drove to Meijer parking lot and ate snacks and played cards for the evening doesn’t count. I did find it fun to pull up to someone’s house in a nice neighborhood and lay on the horn– quite fun!)
What I’ve Learned:
1. When your RV is still winterized and you can’t use its bathroom, a red solo cup works just fine. It works as fine as it does when you are asked to pee in a cup at the doctor’s office.
2. If you choose to pee in the woods instead, note that there is not much privacy in the winter. Just wave at the car that drives by you mid-pee.
3. There is a white line on the right side of the highway called a fog line. Apparently, if you sway over it too many times, policemen don’t like that. Could be that just gives them an excuse to make sure you are not drug lords pretending to be a happy camping family?
4. If you leave your dog alone in your RV while you go out, put away all food, or she will climb on the table to get to all of the pop tarts.
5. Road barriers come up very fast and it’s hard to swerve a large RV out of their way. But the RV can handle them. They are small.
6. Most of all, I learned that slowing down and beating your husband at scrabble with a lakeside view is just what is needed to rejuvenate for a busy week.
