RVs are small, so all your stuff is behind stuff or under stuff.   If you don’t have a system for what stuff goes behind stuff and what stuff goes under stuff, you end up not finding your stuff.  So this morning I could not find my razors. I used a disposable razor that I think I used for the first time when I was sixteen.  The lesson here is that to live in a RV you need to be organized, we haven’t got that down yet and if my past history is any indication, this can continue to be a problem well into the future.

Right now we have a draw that isn’t closing correctly, a GFCI outlet that accepts a plug but won’t return any electricity, (GFCI stands for ground-fault circuit interrupted – what that means and why my RV has them I don’t know), a vent cover that is drooping from our ceiling and I suspect our hot water isn’t working (haven’t flipped the bypass valve, and turned on the heater, so I’m not sure).  The bypass valve allows you to either fill the water heater or not. Why?  I don’t know.  The lesson here is that in an RV something is always needing to be fixed, so you better know how things work and how to fix them, we haven’t got that down yet and if my past history is any indication…

Leaving Myrtle beach we made  only one wrong turn and it worked out, we found cheap gas ($2.05) and only went about 5 minutes out of our way.  Well, that’s not totally true, we also rerouted the route Aunt Debbie gave us to insure that we travelled through 75 miles of road construction, waiting the whole time for the dreaded “Road Closed” sign to appear in front of us.   Aunt Debbie has a good sense of direction, has been navigating RVs for about 15 years and lives half time in Myrtle beach, none of those things are true about us, so why we thought we could find a better route is not totally clear. Anyway, it was a relatively good travelling day, we’ve had worse.  The lesson here is you better learn to navigate if you are going to be driving an RV – we haven’t got that down yet and …

Seems like we are missing some essential RVing skills – so why exactly are we doing this? Well, yesterday we had a great breakfast in Myrtle beach with Uncle Mike and Aunt Deb, a great dinner in Savannah with Alyssa’s friend Will and we got to drive down River Street a jarring (cobblestones) but fun experience.  Today we’ll be visiting our friends Gloria and Tony in Satellite Beach Florida.

If we can find the keys, the engine starts and we don’t get too lost.
