continuing to window shop for a tow vehicle. Last weekend DH and I looked at the offerings from Nissan and I was impressed with several they had on the used side of the lot – the Xterra, Frontier, and Pathfinder. They also had several other makes & models that look promising. I don’t think it will be difficult to find a good used one for the right price when I am ready – October, November-ish.
I’m also stocking up on necessities – slow but sure. Last weekend I bought 2 wine glasses I found at Third World Market. Acrylic! Hey, you wine snobs - never say never! These seem to be really good quality and when you set them side by side with the nice Riedels, they are indistinguishable. Problem solved. Other things on my list - wheel chocks, leveling blocks, and a water filter.
Soon I will be buying a propane grill in time to learn how to use it. We use charcoal at home but a gas grill makes more sense on the road and eliminates 1) the mess of used charcoal 2) the need to carry a heavy bag and starter fluid. And it’s instant fire and a quick(er) stow-away after use.

I’ve also decided a GPS is in order. So that will be my next research project. The Trailer Life Directory that I blogged about recently has campground coordinates and that beats the heck out of street addresses doesn’t it? One of the most frustrating things about solo travel is pulling off on the side of the road, re-orienting the road map, and trying to figure out how you missed that turn. If you have a favorite GPS unit, I'd love to hear about it!
We have a brief semester break which I am enjoying every fleeting moment of. My dissertation is somewhere in
I’m sure all this planning-stage stuff makes for humdrum reading. Bear with me! I’m told December will be here soon!
