« Full Day Of Visiting | Main | Linda Goes Off To Sing & Howard Starts A Photo Inventory »

Thursday, June 29, 2006


Yesterday's blog was great.

I thought days with no real direction and opportunities to ramble are one of the enticements to full-time??

If you fall into the "I gotta do this. I gotta do that." trap you will start sounding like the ol' pre-full-time Howard.

Go ahead and admit it - Didn't the roses smell spendid yesterday???

We stayed at Twin Knobs when we had our TT. Great mountain biking there, but isn't it only 20amp hookups and nothing else? Beautiful area though.

Good morning Howard. I have a question about your blue boy. After you fill it up, do you have a way to carry it to the dump, or do you have to pull it by hand? What if the dump is a long way off? I didn't know if you could pull it behind the truck or if you can lift it in the truck. (seems it would be too heavy ) How many gallons does it hold?


I want a picture of you and the blue boy :) Fred and I have had this discussion. I told him we need one if he's going to insist on taking me to places without hookups. He says he doesn't want to handle our s--t any more than he does already :)

Bout that Blue Boy!

The idea behind the Blue Boy for me is to make it part of my morning routine. When visiting Nat. Parks, Forest Service, and some state parks out West, I make one blue boy and two fresh water trips (total 24 gals. 6 gal. each side walking) every morning. With two adults and three kids I found that I never had to be called to Blue Boy duty on it's time schedule. I never ever use blue boy for black water, not happening in this life time. Also an extra connection and short piece 2-3 ft. of sewer hose to use when dumping the blue boy make it real handy cutting the possible mess down ten fold. I could easily have this done in around 20 minutes. Many of the parks allow dumping the grey water into the pit (vault) toilets, just pull the seat out of the floor and dump it in, being carefull not to run it all over the floor. If you are afraid of heights and possible falling in this is not recomended. LOL Nose plugs sometimes a very nice add on!:>) Back to vacation now later..........
