Like all human beings, we sometimes have doubts. We are going ahead with the visa application and will submit it this week. I have also changed my tune and for some minor revelations, have decided it is "full steam ahead" on our trip. I have checked the gas prices a dozen times in Canada and we will wait and see if we dip in and out of the country and how much we can actually save. "Suck it up" is the only way to describe it.
As for things at home, we are installing a camera system to keep an eye on things and other than that, what happens - happens. I don't have control over the weather anymore than I do what takes place while we are gone. I love my cats but I have to move on and they will be well-taken care of anyway.
I have ordered the LEDs for the rv and a new trim piece for the SUV. We want it to look good as we are going down the road. We have a slight and intermittent gas leak in one of the valve stems on the stove top. It is a real problem to find replacement parts so worst case is we will put a shut off valve on the stove line and turn it off and on as needed. Not a show stopper by any means.
I told you we are headed to San Antonio so we can try out our solar there. We are going to stay down the street from our house at a Walmart and drag the trailer around town as we do our chores. Hopefully we will pick up a new mattress for the trip too so we can sleep comfortably.
I wish I were more handy and new more about electricity. We really need to install an inverter that will bring all the outlets live.
Other than that, the weather here has taken a change for the better and we are enjoying 33C plus temps during the day. At 7:30 p.m. it is still hovering around 25C. The grass seed we planted has all of a sudden come to life and the grass is already 1/2 tall and growing as I watch it. No bull!
