Clean The Outside Storage Compartments – Day 2

The motorhome is parked in Mary’s yard at her home at Murphys, California. I expect to be here until shortly after Thanksgiving cleaning and doing minor work on both the motorhome and Bronco. After our 682 day journey, they are both ready for some attention.

For most of 2013, I’ve complained about the weather…too hot and humid or too cold. Now that I’m back in Murphys the weather is finally nice….although they had a hotter than usual summer here. Extended forecast is really nice for the next several days, so it’s time to get my outdoor work done on the motorhome and Bronco.

Yesterday’s chore was to complete cleaning of the outside storage compartments. That meant taking everything out of a storage compartment, vacuum out the dirt, take a rag soaked with soapy water and wash it out, dry with another rag, clean all contents and discard no longer used/needed items…

I also re-glued the compartment rubber sealing gaskets where they had come loose…

This activity now completes the outside cleaning of the motorhome with the exception of cleaning the solar panels up on the roof which I’ll do just prior to my departure in late November.

In other news…

Last evening Mary and I went out to dinner with her oldest son Ken and his wife, Laurie. It was a nice time. Prior to departure I had Laurie take an up-to-date photo for our new “business” cards which we hand out to people we meet in our travels. I’ll place the order soon….

One more little bit of information…Mary and I met on-line five years ago today. That was a neat happening!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Harlingen, Texas – Day 20

The motorhome is parked at Tropic Winds RV Resort and is scheduled to be here until January 10th.

Yesterday Mary and I did some more cleaning of the motorhome. We even had both professionally washed and waxed. Finally the cleaning for now is essentially done. The road of life is a dusty one!

The Cleaning Continues…

We arrived Marys home in central California October 10th. I’m currently scheduled to depart for southern California the Monday after Thanksgiving. Mary is currently scheduled to meet me some where in Arizona on January 10th.

During my roughly seven weeks here…my primary job is a very through cleaning of the motorhome and our towed ford Bronco II. The road of life is both a dirty and dusty one and both vehicles were ready to be cleaned.

My job yesterday was to complete at application of a product called Protect-All to the Bronco which I started a couple of days ago…

Protect-All is an all-purpose cleaner, polisher, wax and treatment product which contains a UV blocker. It can be applied to just about any surface to slow the deterioration from the sun and other weather elements. The outside of the Bronco is now bright and shiny once again. Now to attack the inside sometime soon…

The First Step…

in the cleaning of the motorhome process happened yesterday…since it was raining when we arrived on Monday. That first step was to move the motorhome up close to Mary’s house to facilitate the unloading.

I started with the first load of laundry. During this stop…essentially everything that can be…will get washed. As I mentioned yesterday…the road of life is a dusty and dirty one. Then the perishable foods, toiletries, computers, books, clothing, etc. Finally I emptied the refrigerator of all its contents. That’s my job for today…a thorough cleaning of the refrigerator. Mary is staying busy with her house stuff…catching up on mail, etc…

In other news…

If you have been following our blogs…you’ll remember that only nine days ago we documented a terrible tragedy of two women bicyclists being stuck by an automobile on a Oregon coast highway. This morning we received another nice Email from one of the them telling us she returned to Canada yesterday and the other one is expected to return to Canada today. Considering the circumstances…they are on the mend and appear to be in good spirits.
