Travels With Dick and Judy

Follow us in our trials, triumphs and tribulations, while on the road in our motor home "The Liberty Belle". We chose to forsake the conventional lifestyle in our 3,000+ square-foot home to move into a 40-foot Winnebago Ultimate Freedom. Travel with us as we take you on the road with us in our new lifestyle.
I may grow older, but I'll never grow up!

We are spending our last day at Bay RV Park and, boy, did we have a shock when our final invoice for electricity was delivered yesterday.  Let's just say that it was much more than we spent in our 3,000 square foot 2-story home!  I visited with the owner this morning and she did give us a break.  Rule #1:  Find affordable RV parks with electricity paid.  We hope to never have to pay additional for electricity – especially with 100-degree weather and no trees!  As we said, the past few weeks have been a learning experience.
Well, I only thought the day was almost over!  After a leisurely afternoon, Dick and I went out to put the kayak on the Nitro and wrap up outdoor stuff when some neighbors came by to visit.  Rule #2:  Do not get interrupted once you start the shutdown procedures (words of wisdom from our camp hosts, Steve and Bonnie)!  Dick forgot he was draining the black water and, when I headed around the RV to go inside, water was flowing everywhere!  Dick went to take care of the water and I headed inside to check out what was flooded.  Fortunately, only part of the carpet in the bedroom and closet was wet with clean water.  One of our great purchases was a small shop vac, so we have been able to get up most of the water.  Water also flooded part of 2 of the bays, so our evening was spent drying out and moving stuff.  Thank goodness we'll be at our son's house for a few days to dry out, reorganize and wash towels!  I bet this is one thing we will not have happen again!!
