Camping Trip Prep
I’ve spent the last few days getting the Good Deal Bus road-ready. I leave Monday for a 3-night trip to meet up with a group of solo women RVers in Georgia. It looks like there will about about 7 of us from around the Southeast. Sounds like fun to me!
I got the very empty propane tank refilled. Then I performed a good interior cleaning. The refrigerator gets moldy so I scrubbed it well, detailed with Q-tips, and placed a container of Damp-Rid in it.
I also picked up a couple of plastic containers. This one will serve as a table, ottoman, desk, and of course, storage.
And this one will protect open food packages from any evil-minded mice.
I’m ready for mice any way you look at it. Notice the peppermint oil-soaked cotton balls and the Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent sachet.
We also have a neighborhood army of cats (which, I suspect, is the main reason I haven't had a mouse invasion at home). If this wasn't enough, I've got mothballs in socks hanging over each tire. And, of course, I now carry a couple of old-fashioned steel traps, just in case.
Overkill? Maybe. That mouse invasion I had in Fort Stockton wasn't the worst thing that's ever happened in my life. But it's not an experience I ever want to repeat.
This weekend John & I will clean the exterior, scrub the floor, and do a thorough vacuuming.
