Waxing and Great Visit

Stix n Brix, NC

Hey to our newest followers, Our Fiver Adventures.  I’m not certain what your names are but hopefully our paths will cross, if not on the real road, then at least on the virtual road.

This has been the week that we usually hit the road in the MH, but we tried to be responsible and take care of a few chores.  The MH is washed and only half waxed since the weather has been a bit rainy.  We took the opportunity to join Gin’s folks in their MH Monday while they were in Wilmington, NC.  Their couch sleeps pretty good and we enjoyed some time with them.  We checked out Carolina Beach State Park about 10 miles away but you’d be lucky to get a Class B on one of those small sites.  NC State Parks are very lacking.  We wanted to finish waxing Wanda yesterday, but it was threatening rain.  Gin scraped off a degraded decal and cleaned out some dried caulk.   We decided to wash and wax Suki instead since we could put her in the garage after she dried.  The Rejex goes on pretty good and you only need a thin coat.  It’s still work to wipe it off “effortlessly”.  She sure is shiny.  Gin put some 303 protectant on the new Michelin tires so she’s good for a while.


This afternoon we visited with Jim and Linda at their campsite in Crosswinds CG at Lake Jordan near Apex, NC.  They have a beautiful MH that many of you may be familiar with, Myrddin.  I have followed their blog for a couple of years.  They have been fulltimers since 2001 and are forthcoming with their words of wisdom.  They speak from experience but are quick to point out that what works for them may not work for others.  The weather cleared long enough for us to enjoy a picnic lunch and some delicious brownies from Linda’s oven.  They seem to be very happy on the road.


I go back to work tomorrow night but I hope to put some wax on Wanda in the morning.  We’ll do a little each day and she’ll shine like a mirror when we’re through.  If we’re good to her, she’ll be good to us…we hope.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

You're becoming quite the social butterflies with all the visits you've had with our RV friends. We just hope you can find time in your schedule for us to visit one of these days!

We feel your pain. It used to take me two days to wax our motorhome. It takes three day to wax the fifth wheel. We have been waxing once a year but we might need to do twice a year when we get out on the road.

Our motor home is due for a wash and wax. If you want to drive out to CA, we would welcome your expert help :-)

It's hard work to wax the 5er, but sure looks nice, only problem on the road it doesn't last long. I would love to meet Linda and Jim, I also follow their blog.

It's great to be able to leave a comment. Thanks for changing it.
