Kitting out THE BEAST

Wow, little did I know. There is a 3 hour long course in how to operate a RV, and a hot line for when you forget how to do it. And manual books that will take up all the room I had saved for a library.

Buying new stuff is always fun, and I just ordered a few top books from I skipped the RV for Dummies, just can't get past the name and have never purchased and "Dummy" book. Actually I know an author of one of them, and he is truly a dummy, so they are not kidding and I am not that dumb.

For the RV everything has to be mini sized. There are very neat collapsible bowls, and I have an old set of Correll very tightly fitting dishes, but really want new jungle theme ones. Seems like I can get lots of items but not in my jaguar or leopard print.

I'll be sending photos soon, and warming up the generator.

The Birth of a Safari

Well, it's official. We are the proud owners of a 37' long Forest River Georgetown XL triple slide Recreational Vehicle.

I have wanted one for years, but Ron adamantly refused because of a nightmare trip in a tow behind tin can that belonged to his buddy in 1906, or some time a long time ago. He went to the races and hated it, so decided he was much too good for "camping".

Took me 10 years!!! But I got it, sooner or later - and well I guess the 5 years we spent aboard the condo ship "The World" doesn't really count.

I am planning to learn how to be a RV'er, write it down for others, and start with touring the USA. Ron and I have visited over 125 countries in the world, but I havent' seen the 50 states - now we go on a land safari.

I'll keep you posted, the "BEAST" as I have named her, is being outfitted with an in motion satellite for Ron's football fetish, and a washer/dryer for my convinence. Only one problem remains, where in the heck is the dishwasher??? I forgot to ask, and I don't think I saw one! EEEEEK!

Stay tuned.
