One at a Time

November 2, 2018

IMG_20180623_120043_126_resizedI’m making every single mistake possible with my RV, one at a time.

First bonk into a tree branch.

First time not locking the side door and having it fly open in traffic. THAT was a nasty little surprise.

The other night I realized that if I were hooked up to “city water” and not using my water tank, I didn’t have to turn on the water pump. IT’S COMPLICATED, OK?

My favorite mistake so far though, has been one with impacts that reach into today.

I bought a somewhat large container of cherry tomatoes. It didn’t seem that large at the time, but then I forgot to put them away securely before I started to drive, and the cherry tomatoes got loose.

Do you know how many cherry tomatoes are in a container? Hundreds. Thousands. Millions.

I wasn’t at a place where I could stop, so they rolled around, back and forth with curves and stops and starts.

That was almost three weeks ago and I’m STILL finding cherry tomatoes. Stacy helpfully pointed out that soon they will dry and become tomato raisins, so I won’t have to worry about them anymore.

    Ok, this is hilarious and I hope you don’t step and squish any of them.

    Oh yeah, barefoot cherry tomato squashing is the worst.

      They were EVERYWHERE. The one that puzzled me most was in the dash tray…

    RV-dried tomatoes.

      An idea worth tens of dollars

        Be sure to add “Artisan” in front of the name when you sell them.

    Pro tip:If you have an awning, always check that you’ve closed it back up before driving away. My family used to own an RV park and that was a super common mistake people made…leaving the awning down, then crashing it into something. Awnings going rogue!

      As soon as I figure out how to get the awning down, I will remember this!

    We drove home from our first trip in the camper with the hitch unlatched. We also had the door flapping around as we travelled down the road. We have done some stupid things since getting the camper, but oh how we laugh over it.
