Craig was ready to move my cooking back down, but I said NO. We need to use the shower and laundry at the house, but I want to keep living in the Alfa for a while at least so the house stays "show ready".
He went to Camping World and bought an additional 50 foot, 30 amp extension cord. That along with the one we have and the cord from the Alfa just reach a 20 amp outlet. We have an adaptor for that. He said that if it looks like we will be here for a while, and he finishes the other jobs around the place, he will put in a 30 amp outlet there. But for now we have enough power to get by with if we don't need the air conditioning.
So, our only limitation will be the holding tanks.
With that in mind, we have planned our next trip for the 6th thru 8th of September. A three night stay in Marin county, just across the bay from San Francisco. The park isn't very attractive, pretty much just a gravel parking lot, and the space fee is very high, over $50 per night. But it is just a 10 minute walk to the Ferry. We want to go over to San Francisco Saturday and Sunday to watch the America's Cup races. Our Realtor is holding Open House on at least one of those days, so it gets us out of the way, and gives us an opportunity to dump. I would like to just keep going, but I have a mammogram appointment on the 9th. Yuck!
Funny thing happened to me on Tuesday. While we were hiking in the National Park, we kept seeing warning signs for yellow jacket ground nests. We were careful!
When we got home, we parked the Alfa in her usual spot, Craig went off to Camping World, and I gathered up a load of laundry to take down to the house. As I was walking down I felt a sharp pinch on my inner thigh. Ouch! I reached down and brushed off a yellow jacket that was stinging me.
I was baffled as to why it was stinging me, or where it had come from. Later when I went backup to where the Alfa was parked I saw dozens of them buzzing around several cracks and holes in the somewhat old asphalt driveway, no more than six feet from the rig.
I called Craig and told him to bring home some spray. I normally would let them be, but we can't avoid walking over them very easily and I don't want to get stung again!
I always said this property was like a National Park, but this is not a good similarity.
