My RV to the Rescue Again!

Several years ago when wild fires swept through our area, we evacuated in our RV and spent the night in a friends driveway, 10 miles away. Staying in our own RV under such stressful conditions helped us keep our sanity.

Now we're having our home fumigated and need to be out of the house for two nights. What better place to stay but in our RV once again, this time in our own driveway. Not only is it convenient, but this way I can keep an eye on the house.

My buddy called me an urban hillbilly, LOL. I like to think I'm just practical...







Craig

If you have an RV and want or need to use it that's what it's for and you shouldn't have to worry about what someone else might say. Jealous maybe???????

Craig,

Practical yes,...but I still like the "Urban Hillbilly" handle your buddy gave you.
