So I learned something new this weekend. I was going to go winterize the Georgetown and the house batteries were flat. This happened when my wife had hit the disconnect switch on the panel while were on shore panel and they didn't get charged up. So when I went to go hit the generator this time I found out something very new. You have to have a little charge in them for the generator to work. That and there is no provision for the generator to use the trucks battery to start the generator. While I was looking online there was some pretty hefty notes about jumping the generator off of compact cars. So I wasn't too big on even trying it off of my van. Even if it wasn't a compact car. So you are pretty much AOL until you find shore power. So today's lesson. Never let your house batteries go truly flat. The van is due for service on December 11th anyway and the weather isn't looking too bad for the next ten days. No freezes until then. Which is odd for my part of the world but nothing I am complaining about. We got the water out of the system and turned the hot water bypass off as well. So it's just waiting to go. If a freeze does sneak up on me. I'll just schedule a night over at a local campground, thanks Thousand Trails pass!, and do it there.
I just thought I'd share this with you to make sure you didn't do the same thing.

@ReadingEagle: BREAKING NEWS: RV fire delays traffic on Interstate 78. http://ow.ly/oroK30fcWZn https://twitter.com/ReadingEagle/status/909126261523537920/photo/1

Typing from my Georgetown just off of I78 about thirty miles from that location. The unusual thing here is that is an engine fire instead of a propane fire. That paint scheme is also from Forrest River. So that was likely a Triton V10 that caught fire.

Ok I like this view from the RV. Although I parked it wrong. So it's in the grass the bit and too late to fix it.

So The Big Bus goes out for its second weekend trip Friday. This time to the tiny little hamlet of Shartlesville. I got another piece of kit for it in the form of a 50AMP to 30AMP adapter in case the camp grounds don't have the proper electric. Which might be the case here.
The difference this time is a sense of scale. The break in trip was myself and three kids. This time we are going big. It will myself, my wife, the three kids, two dogs and probably two cats. I also won't have the luxury of my friends being in the same campground. I will have a chase car though with my wife having her SUV though. Last time it was just the bus since we used our friends large van as the vehicle to get around.
Also the other change is to arrive late Friday to setup and leave Sunday instead of arriving on Saturday. So this is the full boat trip. Time to see if the bus can handle all of us. The cats are the real tipping point. +Luxurious Lexus Land-yacht I'd really like some tips on how you handled yours. Of course you didn't have kids or dogs but where you put the little and how you kept them away from the door and such.
I'm not as stressful with this one because the drive is short and the roads are easier but I am a bit more worried about the shear mass of bodies in the form of animals and humans.

Attempt number 2. I paid up for Timothy Lake South for the kids and I to take the RV to this weekend. I had to get a couple temporary items since my Amazon items wont get here until Saturday but otherwise we should be about ready to do round one.
The rush is because the friends who were going up there a couple weeks ago canceled due to weather. So they rescheduled for this weekend. I cancelled because I didn't have the bus. So this works out. This weekends weather is going to be in the high seventies and clear. Perfect for hiking and hitting the falls. Shame my wife can't make it but it does mean one camping run before school starts.

I meant to go to that show. It wasn't that far from home. This is the kind of stuff that makes Jay Leno hard as a rock.

Oh and "Not an Exit"

Ok so I need a starter kit but the ones I'm seeing are pretty meh. I know i also need a better sewer pipe than the one that comes with the kit. One that is longer and is smooth on the inside. So I'm open to suggestions for what to get.

I'm thinking todays "Kitchen in a box" might not be a nice $34 addition for the Big Bus.
