Getting the RV Ready for the Journey
Just started getting everything ready for the trip to the Florida Panhandle. It is going to be a really long trip of course, but we do not have a lot else to do lately. In actual fact we are going to rent the house out to my nephew and one of his friends while we are down there. It has not been that long since this would have been a terrible idea, but the boy has grown up and he does not do as much dumb stuff as he used to do. I need him to help with satellite tv installation too, which is one of the things that he does. He works for one of those high audio and video places, the type that will sell you a car stereo that is worth more than your first car was worth. Actually a lot of these things are vastly more complicated the old tape decks that you used to buy. They are systems that have voice recognition that you can use for the satellite navigation or the sound system. The big monitor is a lot more useful for the back up cameras though.
Of course I had to get one of those for each side of the thing. I always hated not knowing what was really behind me and at one time we used to have a little set of walkie talkies. When I needed to back into a place that was difficult, Anna would get out and tell me what to do over the air waves. We did that with cell phones later, but this totally eliminates that sort of annoyance. Obviously you always need a plan when you drive one of these large vehicles. It is not as though you could just pull into the McDonalds drive through without an escape plan.Analyze A Lot More
