I've spent most of the day today straightening up the Arctic Fox dusting a few things and working on my desktop computer.
For those of you that haven't experienced it yourselves you wouldn't believe how much dust an RV attracts. Even when I'm not in a dusty place like the desert everything in the RV still gets very dusty. I make it a point to never drive with the Arctic foxes windows or roof vents open for fear of sucking in dust and that may help some but it still doesn't keep it all out. I think maybe a lot of it comes in when I'm Boondocking in the desert and all my windows are open to try and stay cool, but the dust settles everywhere including places that I can't see. So when I drive it blows around and settles on everything again. But whatever causes it I can't totally get rid of it. I dust with microfiber cloths but a few days later it's back again. It appears to be an endless job that I'm losing ground on.
I've been toting around my desktop computer that I built several years ago and haven't bothered doing anything useful with it since I do all my computing on my laptop. But when I started thinking about doing something different with my blog one of the things that I considered was doing more video, and my laptop is very slow when it comes to rendering video. I've done a few videos before showing how to get to Boondocking spots so I know that making a video can be very time-consuming especially working on a slow laptop. Finally it occurred to me that I had the desktop sitting in the corner and it's got a good video card and bunches of RAM so maybe I could make videos more often than every few months.
So I spent some time today tuning it up, dusting it off, and figuring out what to do with its two 21 inch LED screens. The only thing that seemed to make any sense is that the screens need to have a working position and a traveling position so I settled on laying them flat on a towel while I'm traveling. Luckily the screens stand hooks behind the table they set on and keeps them from sliding off. I'll give it a try and see if they stay put or end up on the floor after a 100 miles. theboondork
LED screens In their working position. I think I will replace the towel with something that doesn't slide around.
LED screens in their traveling position. Yeah I need some nonskid under the screens
