Errand Day for goin' RV Boondocking...

There's a bunch of chores today... the first being Laundry day... yuck... but... better than pleasurin' the world with the sweet aroma of a crusty Ol' geezer huh?

Then, Miss Heidi and I have decided to 'upgrade' our phones. With the blog changes I made some time ago, I'll be able to make posts pretty easy... from the road...(without havin' to have the laptop there) if... I've got a cell phone that can do the job without a hassle... The one I've got now, is not much more than a phone... and all I ever wanted - 'till now! So... we're upgrading to a couple of the newer Droid cell phones, that we tested out last week... though, it may have to wait till tomorrow... I can't remember when the kid that helped us is on the job...

It's gettin' pretty pathetic... Dusty Ol' puss gut, geezer sittin' in the laundromat... texting on his cell phone, like a 12 year old! :o) Now... he'll be emailing from his smart phone... while listening to his Ipod... While he's waiting on his laptop to boot up and connect to his wireless aircard! ... and lookin' out the window... wishin' that big white Truck sittin' in the parking lot... was his Fiery Red Raider Star Motorcycle! :o)

Oh Lordy... what's happened to me! Seems like only yesterday I wouldn't let one of those "Devils Spawn" electronical contraptions on the ranch! Now, they seem to be takin' over. :o)

Also, the Macerator pump I ordered is supposed to be in today... so I'll be trying to get it hooked up and running either late today or tomorrow...

Plenty more on the To-Do list... I don't ever seem to dig down to the bottom of it... but most of 'em are boring things to talk about... The thing that keeps me truckin'... and Bikin' ... is that each chore done carries us closer to the final gate!

We're both, Heidi and Me, of the same thinkin'... we're a lil' shy about sayin' it too loud... but...July is our "Dream" month... Mark and Bobbies "Wildflower Celebration" down in Ouray... might could be our own... "Step off Celebration"!...

It's pretty much agreed, we could just hitch up and pull out now... but "Things" aren't completely and well, set up yet... and to just haul out could turn back on us and make it a short trip! so...

We seem to be moving pretty well in the right direction, and quickly gaining on that brass ring... but some 'chores' yet to accomplish... We're walkin' pretty cautious this time, makin' sure all our i's are dotted and the t's are crossed...

Each week that goes by our position seems stronger... more sustainable... and so our confidence grows... It's that soft glow in the sky as dawn starts to break over the mountains after a dark and stormy night... That thin veil of light grey... that runs off the darkness... and swells up... into Shining Times!

Take Good Care
Brian

Laundry day, hmmmm. Have you decided or considered how to handle that boring chore while boondocking? Onboard washer/dryer (using somewhere's electricity) or just do the LaudryMat thing? I don't think a generator would work with onboard one, right???

Brian Gore said...

yeah, a generator would run an 'onboard'... but... with only a 30' rig... we've got no place for such doin' on the rig! :o) not to mention the water we'd need...

... I suppose we could just stick ever'thing in a mesh bag... tie it to a rope...tied to a tree... and throw the hole dang load in a creek overnight! :o)

Now Brian,
Ifn you do that creek thing, they are gonna smell you before they see you. LOL.
Know what you mean about the "contraptions". If I make a mistake and leave the dang thing at the house, I have been know to drive back 4 or 5 miles to get it, "just in case". My daughter calls me technology challenged. I call her smart ---. But I have been known to stand at the back door with my keys aimed at the knob and wondering outloud why the dang door won't unlock. (red face here). Amazes me how the "young whippersnappers" understand all this stuff--most of it is greek to me.
Hey when you and herself get to making those wide circles, draw one down my way. would love to meet with both of you someday.
