I found it! The Blue Ridge Boomer!
Just outside the State Park offices where she works!
Above we are greeted by the Boomer! Sherry, Evelyn and Don. We had a great time (No Max, Mia nor Miss Kitty though). I could not locate these pictures yesterday!!
I am sure I have not covered all the questions we have been asked, but I will try to cover one more set.
1. Do you guys shower in the motor home or use the RV parks facilities?
The coach had a 10 gal hot water heater, plenty for two baths, most of the time we shower in the Rig. Exception sometimes, is if there is no hook-ups for sewer. Sometimes we us the local showers.
2. Can you live without any hookups?
RV’ers call it Boon Docking. Yes we can go for one or two weeks without any hookups. There is 50 gals of Fresh water, Two separate waste tanks. They are designated Grey (sink and bath water) 50 gals storage. Black (sewerage) 50 gals storage. Some National and State parks allow the grey water to be run out on the ground. Florida does not.
We have a large Diesel Generator that produces enough electricity to operate the entire coach. We have two flat screen TV’s and a VCR/CD player.
The refrigerator has an ice maker and operates off gas or electricity. Our lighting is 12v and 120v. We have a microwave/convection oven and a gas stove and oven. Sherry has added a toaster oven she prefers for small jobs.
In Alaska and in the Yukon we did boondock some and truly enjoyed it. Quiet and peaceful.
3. Do you ever park at Walmart?
I think maybe we have once or twice. We have spent the night at A Flying J Truck Stop. I was shocked t the Walmart in Anchorage, Alaska, it looked like a RV park.
4. Do you ever get bored on long drives?
Not often. I love to look at the country, play mind games as to what some odd things are on flat bed trucks. Love to see old cars on the road. I love Barns, farm fields and driving beside a river. I enjoy seeing where the trucks are from and reading car tags.
5. The biggest question is mail, how do you get mail?
We have a Mail Service in Eustis, Florida. All our mail goes there. We call for the mail every week or two. They send it to us and charge what ever postage it takes to resend it. It comes in a large envelope. Most of it is sent General Delivery as a small town close by. The small towns are more fun. many times we talk with the post master about how we live.
The clerk in a P.O. in NY said, “Nobody lives like that!”
When we decided to live like this we picked Florida, they have no state tax, one less thing to worry about. We Have FL drivers license and car tags.
Again I have taken too much time, thanks for coming this way, now if you have a question let me know.
Some people hear voices. Some see invisible people. Others have no imagination whatsoever.
Today’s vehicle of chance:
Yeah, the old ones broke too! I think that is a texaco sign in the background.
