In the West USA, Yukon and in Alaska we have lived in the wilderness. We are fortunate to have batteries, an inverter (changes 12v batt. To 120 AC), we have a generator that completely replaces shore power. We have 50 gals of fresh water and 50 gal grey water storage and 50 gal black water storage. We can, and do live the life of Reilly anywhere we are.
We have a compressor for air if we need it and have a satellite dish that has never been used. We now have two new TV’s that get watched very seldom.
The kitchen is small but very adequate. With an LP stove top cooker, above it is a combination microwave/convection oven. Sherry has added a toaster oven where she likes to cook corn bread.
This pic is out of order as the first (I can't place them well) The Bedroom has a six foot slide out. This is Sherry’s closet. With the mirror doors. WE keep our vacuum here also. It seconds as a hanger for Sherry’s dusters.
(Note you can see our queen size bed in the mirror)
That is not all true, but we can enjoy the journals without looking over each others shoulders. If she needs my attention she e-mails me and vice versa. LOL.
There is a four door refrigerator with ice maker. The pantry I installed is just beside the refer. Sherry says she doesn’t mind putting away groceries since this is installed. If you will note on the insidde of the door is a cross stitch map of the Appalachian trail given to us by 'Chilly Willie' (trail name).
Next down the little hall on your left is our pride and joy a washer/dryer combination. It is made in Italy. I don’t think an American company makes these. (dirty clothes hamper detergent etc above, also the ironing board and vacuum assessories). I am just learning to work it, Sherry is proficient with it. It takes small loads but gets the job done. You do have to remove and shake the garments out before replacing them to dry. (Oh they will dry without it, I tried it. But they dry in a wad! Talking about needing ironing!) LOL
Next down the hall on the left is my closet. Notice the floor of the closet has rolled dungarees. An old Navy trick roll ‘em instead of folding or hanging them.(In the motor home: YOU GOT TO KNOW WHEN TO ROLL THEM , KNOW WHEN TO FOLD THEM) LOL!
This is the vanity. Of course the things you see sitting around are stored when we hit the road. Most jut get pud down in the sink.
NEXT: THE THRONE.....Small water closet (toilet) not as big as an out house, but all we need.
Well that is the tour of our Motor home inside and out. IT is 38.5 feet long. It has a 315 HP Cummings Diesel, an exhaust brake, power brake and a six speed Allison Transmission. Air horn, air ride, remote mirrors, rear view camera and monitor and leveling jacks for when we are parked. We have 12v and 120v lights. We also have a ten gallon hot water heater. Since we do not have a dishwasher, we do share the task. We also share the cooking tasks also.
Finally we tow a 1995 Honda Odyssey to run around in when we settle down. Most folks do not know that you cannot tow ever car. Some would be completely ruined if towed without doing something to the transmission or installing a driveshaft disconnect. The Saturn and the Honda will tow four wheels down by simply putting them in neutral.
We hook up the Honda and head down the road. We love RV’ing, many folk would not.
Thanks for coming this way,
Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
