Bumps, Bruises, Cuts, Scrapes
I got woke up with a car horn so instead of rolling over and going back to sleep, I decided to just get up and get the day underway. Jim was to meet me at the RV at 11:30 with coworkers and I wanted to get more loaded so I started putting everything we touch on a daily basis in boxes.
It was a bright sunny day with temps in the 40's. I was moving around so much that the low temp was quite comfortable. We're all by ourselves with no other RV around, or was until later in the day. People started pulling in about 2:00, now we have two MH's one on each side. I'll have to check to see what's going on at the fairgrounds this weekend. We're pulling out on Friday so our spot will be available.
This is looking out our back window. The protective fence keeps us fairly safe. The gates shut about 11:00pm and if we need out we have a number to call a guard.
This is view from the front of the RV.
This is Dorton arena. Several years ago they had a lot going on in the arena for Raleigh events. Now it's all at the RBC Center.
This is the view from the road. Our RV looks so lonely.
I put up all my shot glasses on top of the slide. They have velcro on them, if that's not strong enough I'll try the putty. We'll know on Friday.
I want to mention something to the new people that are getting RV's. I'm sure it's the same thing with MH. Buy a helmet when you're loading it up. I hit my head on every door and closet all day. I have several bumps on my head, slammed my fingers several times on the doors and a couple cuts where I was trying to cut the rubber matting stuff with a knife (forgot the scissors).
We are in the RV permanently. I'm fixing my first full meal instead of just warming up something. It's going to be in the 20's the rest of the week and into next week at night. I hate this cold, next year we'll hopefully be somewhere else warmer. We hope Texas will be warmer in March, but by then NC should have higher temperatures.
We're both going to get online for a Webinar tonight. It will be our first time and the topic is 5 Frutal Ways to Live in an RV. We're anxious to see what it's all about. It starts at 8:00 so will be late getting into the RV-Dreams chatroom.
