Challenge



Problem or Challenge

4:30am - Which serves better?
  • Solving a problem? 
  • Solving a challenge?
We on the Tioga RV Team feel that there is no contest which to be presented with. Challenge wins, hands down! 😎

5am - Our challenges
At this time, we on the Tioga RV Team have three challenges to resolve.
  1. Sleeping comfortably in Miss Twayler
  2. Miss Twayler's loud heater fan
  3. Camping in comfort
Sleeping comfortably: When George bought Miss Twayler at Bobby Combs RV, he arranged for the bedroom to be converted into an office. The Queen bed was removed, and replaced with a built-in desk. The thinking was, that George would sleep on the front room pull-out sofa bed.

That decision proved to be a terrible one! George found that he never even once used the converted office. It turned out that the only office stuff to do for George was using Mac Air! And, it is really very comfortable to do that in the front room. Got the nice couch and Lazy Daze recliner there!

Also, the plan to use the pull-out sofa bed proved almost impossible. George is not able to pull-out that bed!

Yesterday, a nice twin mattress was ordered from Amazon! [link]

George is able to easily convert the built-in office desk to a bed platform which the new twin mattress will rest upon.

Challenge #1 resolved!

11am - Mega Tom's Burger Place
I've never had breakfast here at Mega Tom's. Ordered a patty melt a few weeks ago. Good burger.

While here, I'd like to let you in on some upcoming things that are happening. There is a big RV show in Pomona beginning coming Friday. I've bought a ticket.

Also, in Pomona, I've been invited by a Scamp trailer owner for a look-see. I'm really looking forward to actually being inside a Scamp!

  1. It is good you decided to get your bedroom back. My "desk" in the RV is a folding wooden TV table that holds my laptop nicely. It is not perfect but it works.

    I think a small trailer you can pull with the Honda might be perfect for you George. It would allow you to take multiple day trips away from Miss Twayler and still have a comfortable place to sleep. You could keep a second set of necessities (cooking, eating utensils and a few groceries and personal items) in it so all you would have to worry about when you leave is clothing. It would make short trips much easier.

  2. Hi George!
    As a woman I have towed a small trailer and camped by myself. I tell the truth when I say that for me... it's much more physically challenging than tent camping! Hitching and unhitching ,leveling (bending down). and backing a trailer is not as easy as one would think. I now have a vertigo problem and would end up on the ground doing some of these things alone..ha,ha and...no bathroom is a deal breaker as I have aged. again ha,ha

    I think we would all like to know the purpose of you wanting to go camping. Is it to sit around the fire, look at the stars, hike, sightsee? You can do all those things in your little car and still stay in a motel with a good bed at night.

    So yes solve challenges not problems. Just that sometimes the road splits and you take another route to get there.

    1. Hi Barb,

      I'm taking your comment to heart. Perhaps it will prove to be an error, to buy a Scamp trailer.

      However, if the Scamp is an error I guess that I will sell it.

      But.......I just gotta try it to see! 😎

  3. wow, sounds like Tioga George didn't think this move thru very carefully. Does Guava Gardens still have vacancies?

    2. Hi Unknown,

      Well.....if you have followed me for awhile, then you know that I often have to do things several times, to get it right for the first time.

      But, I must be doing something right. You are a Reader of my Blog. Right?

      PS: Judy, This kind of comment comes to me now and again. Please don't pay too much attention.

  4. I wonder if you would ever consider a class B. Has bathroom, not towing so no hitching up and troublesome backing. Just a thought.

  5. Class Bs are great for stealth camping and boondocking. That said, fiberglass has a huge following with many interesting websites and forums. Each class of rv has a purpose and an owner in mind. I could easily have a Class B, C and a travel trailer. I envy you. Go for it.

    Your vehicle is not designed to tow a trailer." Attempting to do so can void your warranties.
