Hope everyone has a Hoppy Easter!
I haven't done a lot lately. I don't think unpacking will ever end! Seems I just wander from one job to another and not "finish" anything. I get side tracked easily. I run across some travel pictures, or maps of trips I have been on, and there goes my day! My thoughts are of far off places, and NOT on unpacking. I still have my fifth wheel, it is in storage and I still have a few things to get out of the bays. I am already thinking of a van, one I could "make do" for traveling or maybe spend a few boondock nights in if I had to. I don't think I will ever live in a RV again, but who knows what a crazy old lady might do! I think I could do with a E350, passenger van. Put a bed in the back. Also a porta potty right at the rear door. That way I could dump without picking up the tank to empty. I already have a heater, and lantern. A Coleman stove that runs on one pound LP bottles would do for me. I have outdoor grill. I have an inverter to plug in my cig. lighter to charge up computer or watch a little TV, oh, wait, I would need an antenna! How about air conditioner? Think I could hang one out the rear door window? A good ice chest? Maybe a little refrigerator , to hook up when staying in RV parks?
When my husband and I had a tent trailer we didn't have air or cook stove or potty. It was an old Appleby, you had to build the frame, and actually through the "tent" over the frame. I bought foam rubber mattress, and plastic bags to zip around them. I had a Coleman stove, a Coleman lantern, and a metal dish pan to wash up in. We had a big Coleman ice chest, it was metal. We had the best time ever in Rocky Mountain National Park! It was a step up for us. We started out in a tent. The tent was just big enough for four army cots for the kids to sleep on, and we slept outside on chaise lawn chairs with a blanket. Just the stars for our roof! That's camping!
