|Small, But Comfortable and Cozy|
I've read some folks likening an RV to a road going lifeboat for your house. In fact you could take that a step further and compare full-timers to "round-the-world" sailors in small craft. Either way, it just reinforces how nice it is to be able to have all the comforts, conveniences and safety of a traditional home almost any time and anyplace you'd like them.
What could be better? In a serious emergency (conditions permitting) you could leave the area and wait it out in a safer spot. All in familiar surroundings. RV's are great!
For the rest of this obnoxious heat wave, I will be spending the nights (and some hours during the day) in the cool, air conditioned space of my RV. I have the fridge filled with cool drinks and snacks, the TV/Entertainment system full of digital shows and movies and a cool place to sleep. I'm all set to wait this one out. Since I am so close to the house, I even get a decent WiFi signal here, so I am also online. In fact, I'm writing this with a nice breeze of A/C cooled air wafting around me and a glass of iced tea sparkling in front of me on the table. I almost hate to admit this, but I may have to turn the A/C down as it's getting a bit chilly in here.
Of course, I enjoy travelling to other places in my RV, but sometimes it's just as nice to have one at home! Yet another use for the RV. Of course, making sure your Air conditioner (and generator if you're not hooked up to shore power) is up to the task is another thing entirely. Look here for basic maintenance tips! Gets me thinking about having it ready to go during the long cold winter when my house furnace invariably fails.... OK, first things first!
