An Awesome Day

IMG_1654Today was another one of those all-around really nice days! Both Harry and I were excited to get outside and start organizing in the fiver.

Harry started in the bathroom, switching out the small fan that came when we purchased the fiver for a Vortex fan. We had picked it up yesterday at the repair place. It has several speed settings, and you can reverse the fan direction.



I spent the day moving stuff in. We brought a scale down to the garage, and we weighed everything before we found a home for it.




While I was organizing inside, Harry was organizing outside. He took everything out of the basement that we already had in there, and weighed it. Then he started moving more in, and getting things arranged the way he wants them.



He also found a great spot for our foldup tables and griddle in a storage area over the batteries.

They fit great, and with room to spare.







After a great day puttering around the fiver, we ended it with a yummy steak cooked on the barbeque.



They sure look good.








and I love the view from my spot…



  1. a busy day in your driveway!!!..good work..enjoy the view and the steak dinner!

  2. Smart idea weighing everything! I'm sure we're overweight, but we'll have to pare down before we pull out. There's things in here that no doubt don't need to be!

  3. What a fun day! There's the excitement and joy of organizing prior to hitting the road and then there's the same, yet different, feeling doing similar things once you're out there. It won't be long and you'll be sampling that "flavor," too! Glad your rig is home and you're having fun with it!

  4. That steak on the grill was looking yummmy.

  5. Sounds like you have the same bug we do. A bad case of Hitchitch! Hope you have a fun time scratching it. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. I saw those fans at Camping World, only thing is I don't think I could install one by myself. Why don't the builders put these in the RV's instead of those tiny fans.

  7. If you can use a screw driver and follow directions, you can install this fan, no problem. :) The directions are very good!!

  8. I think it's about time for you to take a weekend trip! Looking good.

  9. I'm afraid if I had to weigh everything before heading home next week, there'd be an awful lot of stuff left at the 'free store' here at the Sands.
