Today was pack up day and get ready to move.  This usually doesn’t take all day.  In fact, we can have the RV put away and ready to roll in about twenty to thirty minutes.  But we have the motorcycle to winch down inside the trailer which is being towed by the truck.packinup.jpg On top of that, it’s in the 90’s again and we’re taking a break about every half hour.  Being the first time on the road as fulltime RVers we packed way too much “stuff”.  Next time, we will learn from our mistakes.  Most of this extra baggage I can attribute to myself.  Being the ‘man’ of the kitchen I brought every little kitchen aide that I used at home, an electric griddle, a hotplate, a gas grill, a slow cooker, electric skillet……you get the message.  And that’s not to mention the myriad of gadgets in the drawers both inside and out.  A gas grill, a slow cooker, and a small electric skillet would have sufficed well.  Add to all this, I had to pack neatly to have extra room for my daughter’s “stuff” as we are helping her move this weekend.  So now we get all the stuff that she’s not sure she wants.  And then it will be back to Pittsburgh as I have some consulting work to get started on up there but that’s for later stories.  So stay tuned for more trials and tribulations of “newbies” to the world of fulltime Rving.  The day was bittersweet as leaving always is.  Sweet in that we’re looking forward to change, as that’s what we thrive on; bitter in that our time here in Selma was unforgettable.  It can best be described below as a picture is worth a thousand words.  Stay tuned!!!blumoon.jpg
