Wesley Chapel, Florida
Somehow, we have messed up our sleep schedule. We’ve been waking up about 4 am every morning, ready to get up and start our day. Of course, when you get up that early, we have been having trouble staying awake until it gets dark in the evening! Al might be breaking the pattern as it’s almost 7 am and he’s still in bed, but I was wide awake again this morning at 4 am. I think it started when we were in Georgia because we were so excited to start our day there.
Things have been going a little better regarding the sale of the business. The new company has quite a few tech’s and they all seem to be much better than the first one that rode with Al. A guy named Miguel was with Al yesterday and Al really liked him because he did the jobs like Al would have. He’s hoping he will get most of the accounts. We’re going to put in a good word for him with George, the owner of the company. Most of the customers seem to be okay with the transition, so hopefully they will stick with the new company.
We’re hopeful that we might be able to get out of town by next week-end.
Speaking of getting out of town. Does anyone have any advice for driving through Atlanta? Other than, don’t do it! I know Jeanne and Eldy go out of their way to avoid Atlanta, and since Eldy is a “driving machine” it has me a bit concerned.
We’ve been told to go through on a Sunday morning if possible, and that’s what we hope to do, but that really limits your travel days, doesn’t it?
I also did a little checking on Streets and Trips and our Truckers Atlas, and found a truckers route around the west side of Atlanta. It will be further, which doesn’t bother us, but there are a lot of road changes and turns which always gives the possibility of missing a turn and ending up somewhere a big rig shouldn’t be.
Any suggestions would sure be appreciated.
Rustoleum Never Wet
A few days ago I ran across an interesting video on Facebook.
It was about this new product being sold at Home Depot, called Never Wet, and made by Rust-Oleum.
It’s a 2 step spray that will prevent water from adhering to surfaces. Actually, it does much more than that, because it repels water. Wow, what an amazing product (at least from the video).
You really need to click on the link and watch the video to see how cool this product is, but as Rv’ers, I’ll bet we can come up with some good uses for this type of product. I wonder if it would keep your fiberglass roof from getting dirty?
One of the things in the video, showed them spraying a toilet brush with the product. That way when you removed the brush from the toilet bowl, it is dry and not dripping on the floor or leaving water in the bottom of the brush container. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will.
Some of the things they suggested was on gloves and shoes to make them waterproof. I am thinking it might be nice to use on my wood dish drain, and in the kitty pan to prevent any wet clumps from sticking to the bottom and sides.
At first glance, it looked like it would be the greatest product ever, but after reading a few reviews, there are a couple of issues. One, unfortunately, is that it doesn’t dry clear, but to a frosty white. Another is that is doesn’t have any UV protection, so I wonder how long it would last outside? I thought about using it on our canvas awning toppers, but I don’t think the frosty white color would look good.
Other than than those two things, I think this could be a really great product.
Al picked some up at Home Depot the other day for under $20. It’s a two step process. In the video they sprayed an i-Phone and then submerged it in water. Don’t think I’ll be doing that, but what about your camera bag? How about your outdoor rug that always gets wet and gushy?
Any other ideas?
Go ahead….take a few minutes to watch the video. It’s really cool the way liquids just run off surfaces after using the product. Might be a good thing to do to the front of white shirts! You know how you always spill something on a brand new white shirt!
