Where In the World Are Coleen and Bob?
(And Just What Are They Doing?)

Happy Easter!

I'm spring cleaning. Living in a small space, we try not to accumulate a bunch of stuff -- but we still accumulate a bunch of stuff. I'm getting rid of things I've gradually collected over the years. Things that have no particular use and no special meaning. It makes cleaning easier. It opens up space for things I'd rather have. It means less weight in the RV. All good things when it comes to RV living.

Wherever you are in your travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Coleen

RVing Tip

Here's an easy way to make a place for your shoes, so they are out of the way, yet readily accessible: Mount a towel bar near the floor on the back side of the dinette seat, along the bottom of the bed, or wherever you have room. Slip your shoes in toe first. We used wooden one, so it matches and blends in. The one we used is long enough to hold several pairs. The back of one of our dinette seats is near the trailer door, so it is super convenient to slip shoes in the rack when we come in and easy to grab them as we are headed out.
