If we want to become full-timers, then we are going to have to figure out how we can possibly fit everything we have into one small RV.
The furniture, tools, lawn equipment, china, silver, crystal, knick-knacks, are one thing, but how do you get rid of all the little bitty things? We worked today on my office. What about all the extra cords, chargers, and cables? What the heck are they all for? I hate to toss some of these things and find out later they belong to one of the video cameras, or something else we still have. When you buy a GPS, camera, printer, dvd player or anything like that you usually end up with extra cables they provide for different hook ups. So now, I’m afraid to get rid of all of that.
How are we going to find room for the 2 video cameras, 2 digital cameras, underwater housing for both, computer, printer/scanner, scuba gear and other necessities?
What about the huge pictures the guys in the Air Force photo lab printed of my Dad? What about the pictures of the first moon landing? My dad was in charge of the Photo Lab in the Air Force, back in the day before satellites made photographs obsolete. He has pictures that were taken on the moon, and printed at his lab. I can’t toss THEM, can I?
What about the letter from the White House when Al’s dad died? What about his monogrammed cigarette lighter, dog tags, medals?
We have put a few things on EBay and Craig's list. We sold an old TV yesterday. I’m still trying to sell my treadmill (aka clothes rack.)
I Craig listed some hand carved nesting tables that came from Taiwan. I got a message from a lady who wanted to buy them right away for the $80 I requested. Ok, did I list them too cheaply? Don’t want to give them away. It’s almost better to get no responses and then come down in your prices…just so you know you’re not selling them too cheaply!
I think what we need is a camping trip to remind us how much we love being in the RV and maybe that will motivate us!
I guess we made some progress today, but we had to stop because it’s happy hour!
