I've been giving it a lot of thought and shopping around and I think I finally found 2 good solutions at one of those AutoSomething stores.
|A lined bag that seals during travel. |
It should be the right size for the minimal trash I produce
|It has a pocket for waste bags|
|Open for business.|
I also found a small (8" or so in diameter) vinyl pop-up receptacle for the bathroom. It has a velcro bottom which should be perfect for travel.
At first, I planned to stow my laundry in the one closet cupboard but there is precious little room for that. Again, I gave it considerable thought, then suddenly had one of those DUH! moments. I looked in our linen closet and found one of those canvas tote bags I never use and hung it on an over-the-door hook. This should work both for storing dirty laundry and transporting it to and from the GDB.
|Don't you just love simple solutions?|
Speaking of which, I've got a laundry list of issues for the Roadtrek dealer with whom I have an appointment on Thursday. It's about a 2-hour drive one-way but the weather should be nice. The serviceman keeps telling me I might have to leave the bus and I keep telling him I can't. How would I get home? I'll be prepared to camp out if needed.
I'm resigned that it may take more than one trip but I want to get a start on these (hopefully minor) problems. I've already mentioned the window leak but I'll go into more detail about the other stuff when I post about the trip.
At the same time, I'm optimistically hoping all will be resolved by the time I leave on my Atlantic Coast trip in 11 days.
I suddenly realized yesterday that I'll be at the Roadtrek Tech Rally on election day. I applied for an absentee ballot but I may have left it too late. (Update: my ballot arrived 2 days after I mailed the request. What alacrity!).
Anybody else on the road November 6th?
