A Long Drive to Lake George

A Long Drive to Lake George

Lake George

Call me a wimp, but I’ve found the best way to beat the sweltering southern heat is to pack up and head for the mountains. I’m talking about the eastern mountains – Alleghenies, Poconos, Catskills, Adirondacks. Where the air is crisp and clean and nights are so cool you want to open the windows and sleep under grandma’s quilt. Lake George

Having the mountains in mind, I chose a zig-zag route up to Lake George in New York. Turns out the route was a little more challenging than I expected, but not in a way that could have been anticipated.

Here’s another entry under the category How Did I Not Know About This Place – the splendid Josephine Sculpture Park near Frankfort. It’s a 20-acre farm that has been carefully groomed and curated to become a wonderful sculpture garden. It’s been in place almost twenty years, but I just recently discovered it through happy accident by reading a roadside tourist sign.

Smarty Pants Cars

Smarty Pants Cars

 

I’ve got a car with lots of fancy but useless features. The car can park itself in case I’ve forgotten how, turn on the wiper blades in the event I don’t know it’s raining outside, and shut itself off should I neglect to push the huge red Off button on the dash. These features seem to be designed for people who aren’t real bright, and probably shouldn’t be driving anyway.

Easy Guide to RV Power Systems

Easy Guide to RV Power Systems

A simple, no-tech explanation of all that electrical stuff in your RV.
(30 Amp Motorhomes)

You usually don’t think about the power in your home too much. Just plug in an appliance or flip a switch and everything works. It’s unlimited power, courtesy of the electric company.

But an RV is different. They are much smaller systems, have multiple power sources, and each has limitations. Basically you’ve got a little power plant on wheels.

Managing your RV power use is important if you don’t want a failure. This means every time you flip a swiitch or plug something in you need to know what power system is being used. Where is the power coming from? How long will it be until that power is depleted or gets overloaded?

So before you let that ceiling fan run all day or plug in a coffee pot, let’s be sure you know what’s giving it juice.
