Hello? Yes, I Got The Message, Take A Day Off For Thanksgiving!

Morning's Suck.
    Yup, that's what I awoke to this morning. I had all the greatest intentions of continuing my testing of the new solar charging installation. Not going to happen. Seems we had a tiny bit of SNOW overnight. Of course, the weather "experts" didn't mention this fact over the last few days. I figure it must be a higher power telling me to take a break from tinkering and spend some time with my family on Thanksgiving! 

OK! OK! I'll do that. In fact, let's talk about celebrations and RV's. 



Almost Looks Pretty!
I don't know if any of you watch AMC's "The Walking Dead" or not, but it's a post-apocalyptic set show where a virus has caused the freshly dead to walk again. Mostly typical Zombie fare, but this one looks at it from a longer term survival motif. I bring all this up, since last weeks' episode was set at a camp for survivors. How does this fit in to the idea of celebration's with RV's? Simple. The whole camp was a bunch of various Class A's, Class B's and Travel Trailers! They put a bunch of them together, almost like Conestoga wagons on the way to California! Not quite a circle, but the idea was the same. Have a comfortable safe place to live while keeping life's problems at bay. Sound familar? (Less the Zombies of course!)

Getting together with some friends, perhaps in a remote spot, perhaps at a campground. Circle up the RV's and have a party! You have all the fixins; friends food, drink, power, heat and/or A/C, bathrooms, entertainment, etc. What could be better? Pull out the grill, pop a cold one and celebrate with friends.

Anywhere you like, whenever you like. Sounds like the RV Lifestyle has some real allure! Besides, if you don't like the weather...MOVE! Have a caravan, re-create that classic trip out west. The only limit is your own imaginations.

This year, I've got a house full of non-RV company. Mostly family, but a few friends too. Some of them think I'm crazy to light off for parts unknown with no reservations and no set schedule....but we know better...don't we! I'll enjoy helping with the cooking, seeing some of the people at the party and being warm and inside. But, in my mind, I'll be RV'ing.

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all you have and people to share it with. I know I'm grateful for all of you - taking the time to read my various ramblings and musings. I can't exactly say I'm grateful for Winter and snow, but I know I'll be grateful for Spring and another RV'ing season!

Be Seeing You...Down The Road,

Rich "The Wanderman"
