Clicking the pics is a sign of maturity, and exquisite taste.
I've always been fascinated by the amount of garages my daughter's neighbors have. Since garages are mainly a guy thing it seems like this neighborhood was built for guys
The weather is still beautiful here in Denver, 80s, low 90s, and high 50s at night. It's getting pretty warm, but the low humidity allows me to live without air conditioning and remain fairly comfortable. Remember, at these altitudes in Colorado; it's only in the low 90s for a couple of hours a day. The remaining 22 hours are comfortable, which can be attributed to the miracle of low humidity and the cool mountain air.
And speaking of air conditioning. The Lance 825 that I may end up with next week is, of course, air-conditioned. This leads me to consider whether I need the air conditioner, or is it a seldom-used dead-weight? I know most folks would consider that the stupidest question they've ever heard, and for the most part, I would have to agree.
But consider my situation as a boondocker, I spend 95 percent of my time unplugged, and I can't imagine anything that would cause me to buy and use a generator. So an air conditioner would get so little use I would have to do what I do in the Arctic Fox... Turn it on two-three times a year to exercise it.
One of the very few times I've used the air conditioner was during the Covid situation. I got stuck in Tucson Arizona so late in the season I had to stay at a hookup site and run the air conditioner to keep myself alive. So at that particular time, I was in the Arctic Fox and glad I had the AC. But, for the most part, I use the old-fashioned way of staying comfortable when it's hot; I don't turn on the air conditioner when it starts getting warm, I build up a tolerance to the heat and use the RV fans to move air around, and due to the low humidity I stay fairly comfortable.
Getting rid of the air conditioner has two big benefits. First, it gives me more space for solar panels on the roof, which I need, and gets rid of the 80 pounds that the AC weighs. So I don't know which one I will do, but considering my lifestyle, it seems like there's more to be gained by eighty-sixing the AC.
I went to the eye doctor this morning and he took plenty of time to explain my cataract situation to me, and the explanation boiled down to this; I don't need cataract surgery until the cataract starts affecting my vision, and at the moment it's not. The changes in the cataract will more than likely come slowly, and there should be plenty of time to know that my vision is getting worse, but until then I will be just fine with a new prescription for my glasses.
That was just what I wanted to hear, and I walked out of his exam room with a big smile on my face.... Until I was told what my new glasses were going to cost !!!
I went for a walk around the neighborhood this afternoon and whenever I do, I'm always torn between taking or not taking my big Cannon camera. I like the pictures I can get with my big camera, but my Sony pocket camera is far more convenient, and doesn't attract attention. Usually, when I walk around the neighborhood, I look like a homeless bum, which is normal for me, but when I walk around the neighborhood with my big camera, I look like a homeless bum that stole a camera. So I always have to decide, do I want good pictures? Or do I want to be jacked up by the cops every few blocks?
Good thing about my daughter's neighborhood is there's no covenants, or HOA's. Which is why the folks that live here have so many RVs and boats sitting in the yard, and nobody says anything to me about having two RV sitting in the yard.
If everything works out next week, I might have three RV's sitting in the yard temporarily... That will be epic.
