I animated this picture from the Chatfield botanic Gardens. Your patience will be rewarded.
The weather here has been decidedly Fall like and apparently will remain so for at least the next 10 days, with highs in the 50s lows in the 30s and a chance of snow Tuesday. Weather like that is normally a motivator that would make me beat feet out of Colorado, or at least to a lower altitude, but I have to stay here to take care of some business till about the 16th before I can head South. It looks like I'm going to have to throw another blanket on the bed.
I've been doing some badly needed straightening up in the Arctic Fox. When I sit still for this long everything seems to come out of the cabinets and storage areas and end up covering every flat surface in the living room. And before I can travel again everything needs to be put back where it belongs. The problem always seems to be that when all my storage areas are packed up and full again, I've still got stuff laying all over the living room. I don't know who's stuff it is or how it got into the trailer but it's in the way and I have to do something with it.
I know some full-time RVers have rules for bringing stuff into the RV, and usually it's either, if you haven't used it in a year get rid of it, or if a new thing comes in, an old thing goes out. I've never had the ambition or the strength of character to do either one of those things. My method of keeping my possessions under control so far has been, if I can't find a place to put it in the Arctic Fox, leave it at a relative's house, or put it in the storage room. I know that's the cowards way out but so far it's been working.
I envision the summer when I put all of my excess junk on eBay and not only get it out of my life but make a pile of money in the process, but deep inside I know I don't have the ambition to start the process, I would procrastinate if I did, and I'm too lazy to deal with the hassle..... I wonder what a larger storage room would cost ?
