I don’t know how much I can take of this wind. It seems much worse today if that is possible, and I know it can get a lot worse than this. A look at the weather forecast calls for 16 mph winds this afternoon, but I’m sure the gusts are way higher than that already.
Little by little I am getting used to boondocking, and although I can’t say I would want to do it 100% of the time, I am dealing with it pretty well. The worst is on a day like today with no electric, required for running the furnace, and I don’t want to run my little generator all day. The little propane heater works fine but I doubt a small cannister will last long, so I try to run it for just short periods of time. Actually it is a good thing to know what you can do and how you would react in a real emergency with loss of power, water, etc. I would be better equipped than most folks in the country, at least for a short period of time.
I want to say that the bed in this TC is much more comfortable than I expected, and more so than the bed in my 5th wheel. I still may get a down featherbed for a mattress topper, but there is no hurry on that right now since I get a good night’s sleep without it. I’d probably be a very happy camper if the temps got up into the 70’s during the day with little or no wind. That’s not asking for much, is it?
Not much going on today because I’ve stayed indoors mostly. Yesterday was windy, but I was able to sit in a camp chair in the sun for quite a while. Tomorrow will be a shopping day as my list is growing – things for the TC as well as things for the pantry/fridge.
I have managed to do my weight lifting routine in the camper even though the space is limited, and I really feel so much better when I do. Life is pretty good for me at this point, although my b-i-l in Florida isn’t doing very well. I doubt he will get a heart transplant but there is an artificial heart pump that can be affixed if they could get his fever down and clear up whatever infection he has. It has been a bumpy ride for him and my sister these past few weeks.
It will soon be doggy walky time, and then it will be Miller Time for me!
