Today’s thought

“To see what is right and not do it is a lack of courage.” –Confucius

Tip of the Day

A good way to store aerosol cans

“We all have many aerosol cans we use for maintenance and cleaning, etc. I have found the best way to carry them in my motorhome basement is in a plastic ammo can. They are inexpensive and available in many big box stores. They stay in one place, are easy to access and with the lid closed and latched nothing can leak or spray if something falls on them.” Thanks to Mark Anderson for this tip.

Random RV Thought

Being on an RV trip is great, but the week before you go is even better; thoughts race around your head about where you’re headed and the roads you’ll take. Anticipation is high for the sense of freedom you’ll feel when you turn the ignition key, hear the engine roar, and roll out your driveway, your home right along with you.
