RV Life and Link Party

The weather in Prescott Valley, AZ is transitioning from Fall to Winter. It’s cold, and I love it! I haven’t lived in a place with four seasons since I was in junior high school. Being in a RV during winter is a little different than being in a house. Staying on top of the propane level is super important. We have an electric heater as well for back-up.
A few nights have dipped into the 20’s, and there is snow in the forecast. I’m super excited about that! We got out our winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves and continue to go on a daily walk with the babe and dogs.
I went back to work in the office on Monday for a short holiday week. It was crazy busy with all the pieces to pick up, but that just made me feel missed.
For Thanksgiving Dave and I organized a potluck at our campground. I hate cooking, and turkey is not my thing. Taking a divide and conquer approach was much more fun. Plus it’s nearly impossible to fit all that food in a single RV refrigerator.
I created this flyer and the office printed copies for all the residents. The campground sprung for the turkey and place settings too. Dave fried the bird and made fries outside the activity center. Being a southern boy, he gets a lot of use out of the turkey fryer (think crawfish boil). It was a great excuse to get to know our nomadic neighbors. We all had travel stories to share. The worst really does happen to everyone no matter how prepared you think you are.
What’s Thanksgiving without football? Sadler loves his Bumbo seat. He can see everything going on, and it has been great at promoting head control. The whole family can fit on love seat recliner with a built in console. It’s great for storage too. Looking for something? Check the console. All the clutter ends up in there.
Have you heard of Magic Mesh? This As-Seen-On-TV product is one I actually love. The screen installs with peel and stick Velcro which we ended up reinforcing with more strips, but not it works like a charm. You can walk right through the screen, and the magnets close it behind you. I haven’t seen a single fly in the camper since Dave put it up. It makes getting out the door with a baby in a car seat a lot easier too. Note that it comes in two different sizes if you’re looking for one. You’ll want the 83″ by 19.5” for a RV.
I’ve been thinking about how to better connect with other RVers and the general audience who reads this blog. First I considered posting interviews, but that proved to be very time consuming and some other sites are already doing it. What do you think about a weekly link party instead? Stop by between Thursday and Friday to link up anything RV related you’d like. It can be a blog post about your rig, an Instagram photo of your current view….seriously anything! I’ll pick my favorite link and feature it here the following week.
The rules are below and I really hope you link up. Also, don’t forget about my gift guide for RVers while you’re doing your holiday shopping. Several of the items are on sale now.
