That’s how much time I’ve spent in the GDB in the past 2.5 years. And I was concerned I wouldn’t use an RV enough to justify the purchase! That means I’ve saved about $40,000 in hotel rooms. But having one’s own bed, food, and drink …. Priceless.
I managed 2 modest mods to the van this week. I ordered a Dock Boss adapter (background) so I can hook-up my MP3 player (foreground) to the van's surround-sound system.
The factory built-in connection supported iPods only. What an improvement it will be to have hands-free availability of podcasts, music, and audiobooks.
Also added some much-needed storage space for those little items that lead to clutter – remotes, charging cables, tools, playing cards, flashlights, etc ...
The idea of using the shoe organizer came from the indispensable Roadtrek Facebook page. The width was ideal but I had to trim the last section to make the length work.
I want to share this ridiculously easy recipe that should work well in a tiny RV kitchen - Southwestern Burrito.
The beauty is that only 3 ingredients are required. (Although I will add cumin to the mix next time).
To make clean-up even easier, you could probably dump the cheese in the Steamers bag to avoid using a mixing bowl. I’ll try that next time.
While we are on the subject, I’m reading Food: A Love Story by comedian Jim Gaffigan.

Meanwhile, Stunning Spring is sadly on its way out to be followed by Swampy Summer. Almost time to crank up the A/C!
