Busy Day With Stuff

Today I got around to that whole house cleaning job I wanted to do before we left Tumwater, but didn't do because of illness.  Before getting to that, we took a 1 hour walk before breakfast.  The sun was low in the sky and made some funny people shadows.  We saw some nice cactus blooms along the roadside on this walk.  (click any photo for larger view)

After breakfast we began to tackle those chores.  Bruce got busy washing the bugs off the windshield and the front of the RV in preparation for our drive to Benson tomorrow.

He had pulled some things out of the outside storage compartments so I thought I'd take a few pictures of our outside "stuff".  On this side we have a large ladder, a little rug shampoo machine, chemicals, hoses, fittings, RV cleaners, oil, engine coolant, and all that other boring stuff.
Then we have an assortment of other stuff on the passenger side of the motorhome.  You know, the same stuff everyone has....patio chairs, folding table, rug or mat, covered indoor dining chairs, extra indoor supplies (paper towels, etc), toys for the Grands, dehumidifier, space heater, and tools (hoping you won't need them, but knowing you will at some point).  One thing we don't have is an outdoor TV.  Good thing since we would have taken it out to utilize that space for storing more "stuff".

We have one of those slide out drawers in one of the compartments and that is handy.  Helps us keep a few non-perishable grocery items we get at Costco in there.

We'll be leaving here early tomorrow morning so I went down to the river bank to get one final photo of the Colorado River with the mountains of California in the distance.
Until next long for now!

Margie, I feel better now seeing that you still have quite a bit of "stuff"!! I agree with you on the outdoor TV too, if the time comes where I want an outdoor TV, it might just be time to pack this whole RV'ing thing in!! Nice pic of the Colorado River - isn't it a great river to see flowing by?

Your outside storage areas look so nice and neat. You should see mine! Whatta mess!

Rick...unfortunately, we still have too much stuff! We have pared it down some since beginning FT life, but should get rid of more I think.

Thanks for the comments...everyone.

My what long legs you have! LOL
I have been enjoying your travel updates. Keep them coming!


Sure like the idea of those pull out bins. Sure beats crawling around underneath the slides in the stones & gravel.

We need to clean our basement out, we have too much down there. As always, your pictures are great!

Great shots on your basement storage areas. Never enough room, right?

Good Morning Margie... Your bins look just like ours... PACKED!!! However unlike you & Rick we love our outdoor TV and even though we rarely turn it on when it is football season all our friends come out and we watch the games on it and share snacks & food... It is fun for us but you know the old saying different strokes for different folks...☺☺☺
