I can't believe I'm saying this, but Wayne is the voice of reason in the germ discussion. We humans are germ factories. Bacteria are essential FOR good health. Probiotics are the good bacteria that we need to propery digest food. Of those germs we find around us, very few can cause disease. Most are harmless unless your body's natural immunity is compromised.

As for laundromats, I chose one in a smaller town and have always met some really nice, friendly people. I chat with them while folding and hanging the dry clothes. Sena likes to help fold washclothes and panties. Her skills are sorely lacking, but she takes the job very seriously.

So Mel, if you or Kate are germaphobics, your RV should probably have laundry capability. If not, I wouldn't suggest passing up a great coach if that is the only item not included.

Won't you be glad when you finally finish the Rainbow Rider hunt?

Barb - I usually find that the voice of reason agrees with me too... but I'm with you - having to admit it is Wayne must be tough... I will have an extra large box of noogies for both of ya in Rockport... Ohhh i yi yi...

I am completely and humbly in debt to all you wonderful mutants... you make something a bit scary - going full time - a joy to contemplate - and even better to execute.

Good for Sena... earning her keep! Funny how most mammals that live with us find something to do to make us want to keep them around!

Sounds like a deal BUT, I'm not home and not sure when I'll get there. The pressure is truly on now, freezer at home went out, lost all but the meat I had with me, and Mary cooked the last tenderloin last night! Last of the ground went in chili few night before! I may have to start eating beef! O my!

Fence will have to go on back burner till new freezer is full!

The counter argument is, those washers are not really any more germ laden than the one in your house or RV. I've lived almost 65 years and have actually washed out a machine less than 5 times. Everyone seems to think their germs and bacteria are superior to those of strangers. I shudder to think of the mold levels in the RV's with the washer dryer combo, or stackables for that matter. The size of the closets practically guarantees mold in unseen places.
If we are honest with ourselves, when was the last time you washed out the washer and dryer with bleach? These articles are designed to shock and amaze you.
Everyone justifies their choices.
I just wish they wouldn't imply, as they did in the article, that your germs are better than mine. The one thing the article did point out, dryers have increased the bacteria in your laundry. Hanging clothes outside kills all bacteria because of the ultraviolet radiation.
That all being said, once every three weeks sitting in a laundromat is enjoyable. Read a book and people watch. Its very entertaining, and a very economical use of time and resources.
How's that for a counter argument?
