#59 Wash & Wax The House?

Yes, wash & wax the house. When your house is a 40' trailer you wash & wax it. After 1300 miles on the road the rig needed some TLC. Bugs, road grime, & the oil that was leaking from the truck all had to go. Since the weather hasn't cooperated lately we jumped at the opportunity with today's clear skies. It was a mess & took most of the day just to wash it. I guess waxing will be another day. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice also but we feel we deserve a day off. We are going to take the bikes out on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Last year we rode the southern 3rd of the Pkwy & now we are at the northern end just before it turns into Skyline Drive. One of these years I am going to ride the whole thing from end to end, 469 miles of twisting winding roads made for motorcycling.

We did treat ourselves to new phones this week. Between a promo, customer credits, the usual term commitment the 2 phones were free. Of course that includes the usual rebate hullabaloo, & we had to pay Uncle Sam his share, & of course accessories to go with the new phones. Nothing is really ever free. The phones are pretty cool Samsung Realitys' with a touch screen & QWERTY keyboard. Now I just have to figure out how to use the darn thing. With both of us having the same phone the learning curve improves while we share our trial & error education. I mean, come on, no one actually reads the owners manual do they?

I'm kind of achy from scrubbing the rig so I am going to crawl into my own bed in my own home in Greenville VA because.....

Home is where we park it,
