I told the dw to remind me to pick up a map when we get into South Dakota and Colorado. Not knowing how the reception will be or how long we will be away from the truck, an old fashion map never runs out of batteries. Now if I could only learn how to fold one!😳

Repack/inspect wheel bearings. Maybe its over kill, but I do it every year. Also gives me a chance to look over the brakes.

Wife locked the keys in the 5'er second time out. Had to call AAA to have locksmith open it up.

I now use an older realtor combination lock box and attach it to the handrail by the door before anything else is done.

I've now lost my RV twice. Both times I've managed to recover them but not without alot of searching. I've since bought a few of those Tile Bluetooth trackers and placed one on the RV keyring.

Talking My long trip ritual begins with paying homage...

My long trip ritual begins with paying homage.

I pay homage to the campground reservation site…
I pay homage to the gas station…
I pay homage to the grocery store…
I pay homage to the liquor store…
I pay homage to the ice vendor…

And I want to extend my long trip, I start the paying homage process over.

Finally, I pay homage to my credit card company for all the stuff I forgot.

Great advice. Happened to us when when went from NC to Mich recently. Denied us when we tried x-action over $50, but bank then called us and got it fixed. Used to happen every time we went on a cruise. Never could remember to call them.
