Almost Ready to Go!

The main reason we went to Carole's mom's on Sunday was to prep the trailer for our upcoming trip. As always, I gave it a good bath to scrub off the dust. And I checked all of the systems to make sure everything is in good order. Unfortunately, for some reason the water heater is not working. I couldn't figure out what the problem was. My suspicion is that there's no water making its way to the water heater itself. I tried to troubleshoot the problem, but no luck. We'll be okay for this trip, but when we get back I'm going to take it in to the place where we always leave the Casita for minor repairs. I suspect it has something to do with the water pump.

All nice and clean! Carole vacuumed the interior.

We got the bed ready, too. We hung all of the blankets and sheets out on the line for that great fresh air scent.

Scrubbed out the little bathroom. We won't be using the shower, of course, if the hot water heater's not working. But the National Forest campground we're using has shower facilities.

Our little onboard closet. Extra shirts, jackets, raincoats, etc.

I think I'll take something like the Casita with me, if I ever find a timewarp leading to 36,000 BP.

Looks like a nice place to live while I build my adobe brick castle.

They're pretty secure.

The windows are too small for big predators. The door would be a problem for them, too, the way it fits into the body of the trailer.

We always feel safe now when we're camping in bear country. And that's why we bought it, after our campsite was raided by a large bear in the Nantahala National Forest.
