April is going to be amazing, if a bit crazy. I sit now at my computer desk, and through my head runs a list of the things that still need to happen before I move into the Casita. It’s long and kinda scary, but I know I’ll manage to pull everything together in the nick of time, I always do. When you want something bad enough, you find a way to make it work.
Last weekend I picked up some Marine Tex to fill in the holes from my side dinette. Some brackets and screws had been added to stabilize the table after market, but whoever did it didn’t use good quality stainless and with the holes being so close to the belly band there is no way to get the snap caps to fit on, water got at the screws at rusted them through. At some point down the road I may decided to redo the brackets properly, or more likely pay someone to do them properly, but for now I’m going to just remove it all and fill in the holes. Saturday is my only day off of work this week, so that’ll be the day it happens.
I got a call from Camping World last Thursday and my hitch is in, I just gotta set up a time to go get it installed. I’m hoping they can get me in next week Wednesday or Thursday when I have off again, if not it may have to wait until after my parents are gone – they’re visiting from the 15th to the 22nd.
So I’ll be doing that tomorrow before work, and also calling the RV park and see if they have a date for me yet. They knew there was a spot opening the 3rd week of April but didn’t have the exact date. I have a few things that can’t get worked out until I know what that date is going to be. The picture above is of the park actually if anyone’s curious.
There won’t be any trips in the RV until after the move, which I’m okay with. The timing just wasn’t going to work out with everything I need to get done. This means that I’ll be hooking up and leveling for the very first time the day I tow it to the RV park, haha. There are 33 sites total, and they’re usually all full. The residents who are around that day will be in for a good show, I hope they have comfy camping chairs and popcorn available.
On the plus side, the apartment lease isn’t up until April 30th, so I won’t need to get everything moved into the RV all in one day. And, I’ll still have access to the roomie’s storage unit, so things can get moved back and forth while we figure out what all we need to live in the RV.
That’s about it for now. Time to start going through my file cabinet, and perhaps order my laptop. Here’s to a good April.
