We got up this morning and I had cereal for breakfast and then started getting the motorhome ready for travel. Don’t have much to do since I put the bike on the jeep yesterday and don’t have to hook the jeep to the motorhome because we are only going about 16 miles back into the boonies.
I dumped the grey and black tanks, unhooked the water, unhooked the electricity and plugged it into the inverter output plug, disconnected the converter, turned on the inverter. Lastly, I retracted both slides and put the fridge on propane and we were ready to go. Beat the check-out time of 11 am by a whole 15 minutes.
About a half hour later, we had parked the motorhome while we looked for a good boondocking spot in the jeep.
Lookin’ for a boondock spot.
Found one and went back, got the motorhome and we are here ready to boondock if the phones work, we can text and the Dish TV works. Isn’t technology a pain in the butt?! Can’t boondock unless we are connected.
Checked the AT&T phones and we are getting around two to three bars, but it is roaming bars, so will not be able to use it for blogging purposes. Pulled out the Verizon MIFI that I brought along for just this occasion and hooked it to my antenna and I get 4 bars of 3G. I get the internet now, so hope it will publish my blog this evening.
We made a quick run about 7 miles to the little town of Bouse. Not much there but I believe it was bingo night at the community center.
