Comfort Castle Location: SeaWind RV Park, Texas
Adventure Location: Riviera, Texas
What happened today? Who knows? Not me. Suddenly it was after six and my stomach was taking control of my life. FEED ME FOOL. Where did the day disappear? Where are the pictures planned to be in tonight’s blog that have not even been taken yet? They are still out there waiting for fool with the camera to get moving on them.
Getting started on cleaning the outside of the Castle was the productive activity for the day. First one of the water hoses had to be repaired. Next was getting the equipment out to clean the rig. After rinsing the Castle it was obvious that some much more serious cleaning was needed on the outside.
A “myth” in the RV world is that Bounce dryer sheets will get the bugs off the fiberglass no matter how long they have been cooking in the desert sun. Yeah Right has always been my thought. My normal scrubbing techniques have not been very successful. A few months ago a small box of Bounce was purchased and has been carefully aged in a cabinet. With my usual lack of success with my techniques it was decided to try the Bounce to bust that myth all to pieces. WRONG AGAIN AS USUAL. (This is getting to be a way of life with me.) THE MYTH IS FACT. In less than five minutes more old bugs were cleaned off the front of the Castle than a half hour of scrubbing had done.
WOW. This is definitely the much better way to scrub bugs off the exterior. By now it was getting later and the belly event in the first paragraph took over my life.
In the morning, a run to Wal-Mart to get some cleaning and other supplies will need to be done. Then, maybe, some more pictures around the campground will get taken. There are a lot of neat things yet to show and talk about in the area. However getting the Castle cleaned up is first priority.
This campground is a very good facility but it is a long drive from nearly everything you might need. Wal-mart is a 44 mile ($8) round trip so planning your trips is important to save money. If it were closer to places to use my toys, it would be a first choice for wintering.
A couple from Kansas is next door to me and nice to visit. This is their eleventh year to come here for the winter. To my surprise they told me that only one year did they actually have enough mosquitoes to bother them. The campground is next door to a major marsh area so there ought to be mosquitoes in great quantity.
Tomorrow is ladder and Bounce day. The sun is supposed to be shining and the temperature warm with strong winds to keep me dry and cooled as the effort is made to try and have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
