You know who my hero is, Friends?
Adirondack View. We met for coffee in Lake Placid yesterday, and she brought along a spare RV pump. Isn’t that awesome? (We RV people stick together.) You might remember that our pump quit a week-and-a-half ago. We’ve been Laura Ingalls Wilder-ing it. So, we the potential promise of real-life actual showers, indoor plumbing, and not having to heat water on the stove – I grabbed the thing and crawled into the RV hatch this morning. (As if I were a 90-pound contortionist.)
Pretty straightforward, two wires, one water line in, one out, pressure switch attached to the pump. Worst part of it was really working in the tiny enclosed space, laying on my stomach. But, with minor wear and tear on my knuckles (and quite a bit of water all over the place), I got it in. I then came inside, turned on the hot water heater, made sure everything worked, brewed some coffee, and wrote this blog post, anticipating my first proper shower in 12 days. Can we get by without a running water? Sure. But it certainly makes things a lot more comfortable. Okay, eminently more comfortable. All that nirvana, just from attaching two little wires.
So, it’s a pretty awesome day here at The Pines. Tomorrow, I’ll do a round up of all the cabin info folks offered in the last post. Be sure to appreciate that indoor plumbing and hot shower, Friends!
You have a great day too!
