Stix n Brix, NC
Yesterday was not an easy day. It was fun and we didn't want to stop. What did we do? We packed up the inside of Wanda for an upcoming trip. We were tempted to put everything in there as if we were fulltiming and just leave it in there. That time will come in a few months but it's still a little early. It did make me realize that we can indeed carry our essentials with us in this rig. Many people that have 40ft MHs or big 5ers say that they have room to spare when they first pack up for the road. Now I can understand why.
We want a good vacuum to keep in the closet of the MH that doesn't take much space. We currently carry a cheap bagless green one that does a decent job but it lacks in suction power in my opinion. It's a bit bulky too. One that has caught our eye is the Dyson DC35 Multi floor. It's a cordless battery operated machine that has lots of suction and all the necessary attachments to do the job. The battery needs to be recharged after about 15 minutes but I think that's long enough for a MH. It costs about 300 bucks too which is a bit more than we want to spend.
We have really thinned down our kitchen supplies. We like Corelle plates but don't know whether to carry a place setting for 6 or just 4. To those of you that are set up for the road, how much do you carry? What kitchen appliances and cookware can you not live without? What kind of vacuum do you carry? Any input or ideas would be appreciated. We aren't great cooks or Susie Homemakers by any means, but we don't want to be out there and say, "I wish we hadn't sold that at our yard sale." too many times.
I've got to work tonight and then we'll hit the road tomorrow afternoon. We plan to pull in at a Walmart around supper time and then leave there in the morning. We should be in Tennessee shortly after noon to get some rally hugs. That's a little earlier that we planned but we are ready!
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
