The latest Bumfuzzle blog post, Comfortable:
We've always been more Bumfuzzle than Pardey. This new post is particularly timely. When we moved from our house to the boat, it filled every inch of a Dodge minivan. As we prepare to head back to the States and buy an RV for hurricane season, the reality of how simplified our life has become is apparent. I can pack in a backpack. Granted, the RV will be more "summer cabin" than "home". Technically, the cat's list is almost as long as mine: food, anti-anxiety medicine, some litter & pee-pads until we can buy her a second Breeze litter pan, treats, her book of health certificates, her favorite towel... (I tried to buy her a separate seat, mostly so she could have her own carry-on. She moved to the boat with her own backpack full of food & toys!). For us: iPads, Kindles, underwear & a few changes of clothes (actually, we now buy our underwear at WalMart and hopefully there is still a bin of clothes in storage in STL). I may pack an extra duffle with: the expensive electric tea pot we only use at the dock because it turned out to be too high an electrical draw. Maybe the Nutribullet, since it's small & too expensive for a duplicate. iPod and Iridium GO!, all wrapped in a small blanket that isn't getting used in the Caribbean. Mostly, so we have a spare duffle that can be used to haul boat parts back! (Captain approved!)
Oh, and a restaurant with air conditioning? What's that?!
