As expected! Last night the wind blew like mad and rock my RV a good bit, nothing new, but it has been a while since I felt the wind that hard. Unfortunately it brought the cold weather right in with it 😦 and it is still windy today too. I guess tonight will bring the really nippy cold air. The weatherman says in the 30s for tonight and maybe below freezing the next couple nights, not my kind of RVing weather, I’ll just fire up the heater and wait it out. Most all RVs have furnaces built-in but us boon-dockers don’t get to use them because they are such power hogs. Most dedicated boon-dockers have either a blue flame heater or one of the Catalytic heaters, I have the
Wave 8 Catalytic heater and it will keep me pretty toasty during the cool snaps. Update 5:30 pm; The heater is running and it feels mighty good, I can see I will be burning a lot of propane over the next few days.
When using an open flame heater in a RV one must be sure to keep good air circulation in the RV because the area inside a RV is small and the air can deplete quickly, so a vent or a window must be partially open while the heater runs.
This morning I took a little trip over to Parker to do a little lot of shopping at Walmart. I am stocked up pretty good now and should not need another big store trip for a while now. Sure hope not after all the money I spent this morning! The cost of living is wearing me out 😦 as it is everyone.
Exercise has not happen today, the knee says “take it ease old dude!” So I am listen. Yes, yes, my body parts talk to me, LOL! I did sneak in a little stretching today, nothing special but I am slowly starting back. Not sure how these colder days are going to go for my exercising, the cold don’t encourage me to get outside, but I am sure I will be out some. I like being out some each day and even more on other days, being out is good.
Tonight I am debating as to rather I will run heat all night or get the place nice and warm and then go off to bed with the heat off and pull on the cover. The latter is fine till it is time to get up, brrr! So I can see me now, jumping up in the morning and lighting the heater and jumping back into bed till the place warms up, LOL! I can feel the temperatures outside dropping as the evening wears on.
