Ok… So if you decide to take an RV a very long distance during the winter season, do not neglect checking your propane levels. I had no idea I was on empty, and there we were… driving from Florida, on our way up north at 12am. If you are new to the idea of living in a vehicle that requires propane to keep you warm, there’s something you should know. They do not sell propane anywhere during the night. At least that was our experience. So one cold night later, we woke up around 11am and we able to get our propane tank filled at a gas station. Woooooo!!!
Another thing we got during this trip, was a Flying J/Pilot professional driver card. This card give you points for various things but we mainly wanted the shower credits. When you get 14 gallons of gas, you get half a shower credit. When you purchase 50 gallons, you get a whole credit. So what we did, was purchase 14 gallons.. stop the pump.. start a new purchase and stop at 14 gallons.. repeat until your full. That’s the way you get the most credits. We need these shower credits because with three people, you run out of RV water quick… Especially quick when in a few days two more friends are cramming in here for the rest of February.
We drove… Drove some more… Then slept at a rest area. We only had to drive 3 more hours and we made it to Arkansas Tech College. We were greeted by Tulsi… And we wouldn’t have had it any other way. She and another by the name of Elijah were with us though out the whole night, taking care of us and after, what must have been an hour of telling stories and laughing about things like Boot Scoot the cat stepping in Emilys chili, we hit the stage and sang our hearts out. The crowed was super friendly and I think it’s safe to say we made some great friends tonight. They let us leave with the giant poster they made for promotional purposes, which now hangs on the wall left of the entrance to Harvey the RV.
We are back in Harvey, heading toward Fort Hays State University in Kansas! Tata for now! 🙂
