Get a grip, don’t slip…
With veteran RVer Mike Sokol
I just thought of this while navigating the dark stairs in my basement the other day. I use non-skid safety tape all the time for production stages, so why not for RV steps. I have seen a few modern RVs with this, so perhaps you already have it on yours. But if you don’t, then this will really help you see the steps in the dark, and keep you from slipping at the same time. This one includes a peel-off back and is weather rated for all surfaces, so it should work great on your RV steps, or even at your sticks-and-bricks home. You can buy some here.
TAKE A NAP! But only for 15 minutes! A nap should be about 15 to 30-minutes in duration. If you nap longer than 30 minutes your body lapses into a deep sleep. Deep sleep is difficult to wake from and if interrupted or just completed, can leave you feeling terribly groggy.

Put your beer in “suspended animation”
Like a good cold bottle of beer? Or a good cold bottle of soda? Horsing them out of those nasty cardboard cartons is a hassle – and it takes up so much space. Put the bottles loose in your RV fridge – well, who knows if they’ll jump out when you open the door. Solve the whole problem and free up shelf space with BottleLoft, magnetic bottle hangers, that stick to the top of your fridge. Find a set on Amazon for less than $30.

Ouch! Poison Oak is all over California. Read more about this here and learn how to stay away from this poisonous, itchy plant.
WEBSITE OF THE DAY
Everything you ever wanted to know about drones, and more! How are drones changing the shipping industry? How are they changing manufacturing? Drone search and rescue? As we said, there’s everything drone-related on this site.
Make the whole RV park laugh
You’ll want this shirt if you’re on a family vacation, this one if you own (or are buying) a Class C, this shirt if you haven’t mastered backing up yet, and this one you’ll want just because. It made us laugh out loud.
REMEMBER THIS FOR TOMORROW’S CONTEST: The correct answer is “radioactive material.” Tomorrow’s prize: a very cool solar powered weather radio.
LEAVE HERE WITH A LAUGH
I can’t take my dog to the park anymore because the ducks keep attacking him.
Guess that’s what I get for buying a purebread dog. (okay, time to groan!).
