Hi Lynne; Janet baked pies in the 5er gas oven and in the convection oven in the coach. I have baked pies on the grill.

Our rhubarb is just coming up.

Truth be told Patty waits on me all the time and cleans up behind me as well. Oh I'm not that bad about it, but still. Mostly it's really that no matter how clean I make something, she comes right behind me and goes over it again.

Most of all she puts up with me and I can tell you that alone is a monumental task. So 2 days a year I won't let her do anything that even smells like work. Not that I don't work share the rest of the time. But on mothers day and her birthday I won't let her do any work at all. She tried to wipe down the counters today and got snapped with a dish towel. The birthday is coming up in 2 weeks. Taking her on a little outing so she can be pampered all day. I have to recharge her "Put up with Jay" battery.

I hear you Jay. They are definitely worth it. I am in the same boat as you. I have been doing the stuff around the house since Janet had the hip operation. She is starting to get bored and I started catching her doing something a week or so ago. She is coming along quickly and wants to get out in the yard to do some gardening. 6 weeks on Friday so we will see what the Dr says.

Lynne - we had apple pie and lemon loaf today but tomorrow I am going out to look at the rhubarb. I can see from the kitchen that it is just starting to leaf out but perhaps if I sit there and look sad it will come up faster. I will water it too.

Sleeps till May 23: 13

Guys, it is a whole different ball game when you live in 350 Sq. Ft. You learn real quick to find a place for everything, and put it back when you are done. You also share duties a lot more than at home. Rita still won't let me do the dishes, but I do most of the cooking, not all, but most.
Lynne,
I will take you up on that, we will be in Frankenmuth the middle of September, so we won't be too far from you. Rhubarb is my favorite pie.
Frank

bap - I will be turning our garden today for the second time. Probably another couple before we actually plant. Have to go out and sit with the rhubarb a little bit while I am out there. Lynne has me hankering for a rhubarb pie. Janet was talking this morning about making an apple and cranberry pie. Hmmmmmm

Frank - space (or lack of it) is one of the best things for planning. The less space you have the more you have to plan. Also how much stuff can you actually take? Helps with setting priorities. We were in Frankenmuth a number of years ago on a motorcycle tour. We went to a family dining place that was great. Cant remember the name of it but really did enjoy it.

Lynne
Number of Sleeps to May 23: 12

I think you are driving down to get your coach so here are some suggestions for things to take with you (assuming you plan use it on the way back): bedding, pillows, clothing, towels, place setting for 2, cutlery for 2, knife, frying pan, pot, tea kettle, coffee pot (we ground a small container of coffee to take along rather than take beans and a grinder), salt & pepper shakers, favorite seasoning, toilet paper RV, personal kit, shampoo, hand soap.

Road atlas and GPS. Road Atlas should be fairly current. If not you can buy one a most truck stops. We like the truckers atlas as it will list height restrictions if that is a concern. GPS is optional but very handy if driving through larger cities, make sure the maps are as current as possible. It may be a bit late but if you are going to buy a RV GPS it could be purchased now if you can get it in time to practice with it before getting the coach.

Some stuff like butter, milk, meat, produce, bread, etc you can buy in a store.

Something to buy: We use Dawn for dish soap as they say it helps maintain the tank sensors.

Parking in Walmart parking lots is OK, especially if it is a Super Walmart. They have a good selection of food and do have an RV section where you can find some things like RV toilet paper if you do not have it already.

Thats great hes not afraid of work and is already having ideas of being in biz for himself. Teaches you real quick the value of the dollar and what it takes to earn it.

Gotcha. We spent a lot of time practicing living in that small of a space within our home. Funny story. But it will help us be able to live in it without killing each other.

Lynne - Tic Toc Tic Toc

Have a great day everyone.

Frank,


You are on. If you let me know what dates you will be in Frankenmuth, we may just bring the MH to the campground there and visit as we eat rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream. What do you like to drink with it? Coffee, milk, or something else?


Gordon,


Sitting in my bedroom is a box with the following items. We will be flying down so packages will be sent to Curtis and Melissa's house.


Kitchen spoons, spatulas, sharp knifes, forks, spoons, knives, towels for kitchen and bath, salt and pepper, season salt, matches, and potato peeler. Can opener and hand soap, and shower soap. Dawn dish soap. Waste basket and bags Zip-loc bags varying sizes. Scissors, bar tenders cloth for drawers to keep stuff from sliding. Some cleaning rags just in case. RV TP.


Ordering from Walmart: and having shipped: Sheets, pillows, blanket.


So, as you can see, I have been busy and trying to get enough without making it too much.


I figure when we take off we will stop for the food, bottled water, snacks, map from the truck stop a couple miles from Curtis's house. Tire gauge, have a GPS that is coming with us. PC, cell phone charger.


May buy a couple cheap folding chairs when we stop at Walmart and an ax. Taking some tools with us too.


It will all work out. When we get home I have fire tongs. Marshmallow sticks and hot dog sticks my Dad made over 40 years ago. They will go in the MH for sure. Dad would have loved having one of these. We tented and he had a pop-up. He put the love of camping into me.




Yep, 12 sleeps and counting. This has been quite a process. Have a great one! Lynne

Lynne your list sounds great. We drove down to pick up our coach so we had the luxury of filling the car full. However Janet in her wisdom only took enough stuff to use on the way back. When we got home she filled the place up.

I think she was very wise to do what she did. Things were not too complex and moving in the first day was quick and easy. She had planned a few meals for the trip home so we only had to stop for the right ingredients. The rest fell into place.

It did not hurt that we were in Iowa and the corn was in season. YUMMMMM

Hey Bap,


I will be going Wednesday to take a video of the TT I sent you the pics on. I will get the video sent to you as soon as I get back from Billy's. Anything in particular you want me to get a real good exam of while am taping? Just let me know.


Frank,


It would be great to see you two in Frankenmuth. Get to meet Curtis and Melissa soon and then you two too would be fine. If Bap comes to look at that TT than we get to meet two more.


Could be a wonderful summer with meeting friends.


Lynne
