How Are We Going to Remember All of This? The Art of the Checklist

We’re working out ways to remember all of the things required to take Bojack out for a trip.

Next weekend we’re taking Bojack out on his maiden (Wait…is there another adjective I should be using instead if Bojack is a “boy” camper? Does it matter?) camping trip!

Rather than try to provide you a glossary of our own, I will link you to some of the glossaries we’ve relied upon in our searches for definitions. After all, so many RV websites have glossary pages, and I think among them all, one can always find the definitions one is seeking. Continue reading “The Terminology is…Different”
