Today was a busy day as often is the case when it's time to move. When I sit in one place for a couple of weeks I tend to spread out all over in the Arctic Fox and the day before I go there's a lot of straightening up and cleaning to do. and even though I'm no great fan of straightening up and cleaning I've found that if it's done in preparation for going to a new place its not nearly as onerous and sometimes almost fun.
One of the things I got out of the way yesterday was doing the laundry. When I first started full timing I made up my mind that since I don't really enjoy doing laundry I would have enough clothing, bed linen, towels and things of that nature so I only had to do laundry once a month, remember I'm living by myself so that helps a lot, and so far that's worked out pretty well. It allows me enough time between washing so that I can choose places to do laundry, skipping the crowded, expensive, inconvenient or less than clean looking places in favor of places like here at Ben Avery's where it's the exact opposite of all that.
I did manage to get around to vacuuming yesterday even though that's not one of my favorite things to do either. Come to think of it most anything that involves work doesn't seem to be things I like to do. I also dumped my tanks, and went to the grocery store. Both of which don't require much effort from me so I'm fine with that.
Since I still haven't received the seat for my little motorcycle I decided I would make a temporary one myself out of Styrofoam and duct tape. I had some pieces of Styrofoam left over from a previous project and of course I have lots of duct tape.
I glued together pieces of Styrofoam into a shape to fit the area where a seat should go on the motorcycle, and when I get out to the BLM area tomorrow I will use my angle grinder to shape it to look like a seat and duct tape it to the Beta so I will have something to sit on where the seat should be. I don't expect this pretend seat to last too long, I'm just hoping it will last until the real seat gets here.
I've got about everything done now that I need to do except unplug from shore power, put in the slides and hook up the Arctic Fox.
It feels good to be going boondocking again.
