A visit from another Damsel Fly....I wish I was that skinny.
The mornings are getting chillier and chillier, when I got out of bed I had to run my radiant heater for almost an hour before it got up to 70 in the Arctic Fox. The sun is getting lower on the horizon now so I'm not getting much help from it in the morning to warm things up.
The cool weather is a reminder to me that it won't be long till I'll have to start getting the Arctic Fox ready to head South. Which means that my one track mind will have to make the transition from thinking about the little Bronco camper and mini-vacations, to cleaning and straightening up the Arctic Fox after a summer of mostly letting things pile up, and go undone.
It also gives me a chance to think about all the things I wanted to do to the Arctic Fox this summer but never got around to, such as.....
Install a fantastic vent fan, that I bought about four years ago, in the bathroom to replace the noisy worthless little propeller that came with the Arctic Fox when I bought it.
Grease the wheel bearings.... Not yet, but I might possibly do it before I leave.... Maybe.
Rotate the Arctic Fox tires..... Fat chance!
Clean out the refrigerator.... Why bother. The green stuff growing in there might get big enough to eat.
Wash the Arctic Fox's windows.... Maybe not, if I did then I would be able to see who's parked next to me in a Walmart parking lot, and if you plan on getting any sleep you never want to do that.
Spray some Rust-Oleum on a few rusty spots.... But If there's any chance I'm going to the Texas Gulf Coast that would be a big waste of time.
Sweep the floor... Not a good idea, the dirt protects the linoleum from undue ware.
Clean the stove.... It's taken years for the stove to develop a protective crust, no sense ruining that just for looks.
the carpet is starting to resemble a dead lawn..... This is a good thing, between all the dirt on the floor, and the carpet looking like a dead lawn, I can sit in my easy chair in the living room and feel like I'm outside without having to deal with the wind and the bugs.
So looking at the big picture I guess there's not actually all that much I have to do before I leave, mostly just put up the steps and drive away.
