I’ll be here for most, if not all, of the next week, so this afternoon I packed up the RV and drove it a total of 1.2 km from my site to the dump station and back to my site. 🙂 The cats, Neelix especially, were most confused to find us stopping right back where we started! I have to say that this park was very well designed. Getting around with the rig was easy, with lots of room to turn and get in and out of spots. I’m not sure if this was done on purpose, but the area by the dump station slopes down towards it. This is great for dumping since you’ve got gravity working for you.
I took advantage of the move to park the car at the front of the site so I could park Miranda further back, closer to the hookup post. The way I was parked before, I didn’t have enough hose to get from the post to the city water inlet. This made me grateful for my new fresh water intake as it gave me the extra foot of hose I needed. 🙂
I’m surprised that I’ve gone a week and a half (feels like more!) without dumping. My black tank was only about half full. Not sure about the grey, but the sensors said it was full and I didn’t want to wait for water to start to back up in the shower to go dump. Coming back, my sensors informed me that my black tank was full, the grey tank was 3/4s full, and the propane is empty. Those things are great for comic relief!!! The propane is actually a third full. I went through quite a bit in the week between Dawson Creek and here because of the weather, but my consumption is back to being practically non-existent so I’m not even thinking about refilling the tank at this point.
The reason I’ll be here all week is that I’m in the middle of a fairly big painting project. I did a minor bit of painting on Thursday and the owner was impressed with the job, so he asked me to do the deck. This has turned into a more major undertaking than it probably should have been, what with minds being changed about the colour and my needing to start over, but the end is in site. I was asked if I wanted to stay on longer and do all the out buildings, too. Um, thanks for the offer, but I’m not looking for a summer-long job! I have been told that there will always be work here for me, so I’ll stop in the fall if the road leads me back here. Work doesn’t really feel like work yet, so I’m content to stay on. This is fabulous strength training for my poor knees in anticipation of the Chilkoot so if only for that it’s worth staying on.Share on Facebook
