The continuing saga of a full-time RVer, who travels primarily in the West.

Happy Birthday to Me!

When Granddaughter Mara, age 3, heard that I was 59 today, she said, "That's a really nice number, Grandma. I love that number!" I guess I like it too. I feel fortunate that I was able to retire at an early-enough age to really enjoy my retirement.

What did I get for my birthday? "Brother-in-law" Ron installed my big 1500-watt inverter that I had gotten in Quartzsite. The only thing I will use it for is the microwave. I have a little inverter for the TV, and a DC charger for the computer.

It's installed under the couch, next to the batteries. Check out that BIG 200-amp circuit breaker!

For those who are worried I'll get a short from the springs under the couch, the batteries do have a cover.

Now to see if the microwave works.... Hmmmmmm.... Guess I need to move some stuff....

Ah, that's better. But it's been 9 years since I've had a microwave. I hope I remember how...
