Mid-Winter Thoughts

Happy Mid-Winter! It’s Patricia here! I figured I will give a brief update since our blog has been quiet since late October.

Since we are not full-time RVers, Bojack needed a “winterization“. We had no plans to use him in the winter. Last November Dave and his friend winterized Bojack at the USAF Academy RV lot, and Bojack has just been sitting there, enduring the downslope windstorms that are common to this part the country, waiting for spring.

Maiden Voyage Lessons Learned…Getting to Know the Water Systems.


Patricia’s been doing the heavy lifting on blogging our adventures but I thought it was high time I contribute.  Being the more retired of the two of us, I’ve been doing a lot of the mechanical work on Bojack…and besides, it’s the kind of work I enjoy.  I’ve been learning as many of the systems as I can in hopes of being a more informed RVer.  In FAA ground school I learned all about my airplane’s systems so that I was more prepared for what could happen in the air, so I figured the same principle applies.  Well…yeah, kinda…and not really!

Meet Bojack: The Motivation For This Blog

Everyone, meet Bojack, our new 22′ travel trailer. We’ll explain his specs in a future post. Pardon the arrows on the image, I lifted this image from the original Facebook ad, it was a nice view of the door-side.

We have to blame our friends, who own a Class A motorhome.

You know. Those big ones that look like buses. Those ones that you look and and think to yourself, “How do you maneuver that thing?”

You ponder whether you need a Commercial Drivers License to operate one of those. (Good news, you don’t!)

Anyway…where was I? Oh yes, I setting the stage for how Dave and I ended up with a 22′ travel trailer. Continue reading “Meet Bojack: The Motivation For This Blog”
