Our Truck-House . . .

We had another beautiful sunny day, just perfect for this segment of bin decluttering. I managed to get through every bin in the basement area. But this first pass was only a throw away/send to storeroom pass. But I got 6 big garbage bags to take to the dumpster, and a big plastic bin of stuff to go to our storeroom in Houston tomorrow.

Since it’s supposed to rain here on Sunday I probably won’t do anything, but Tuesday, after we get to the Lake Conroe Thousand Trails on Monday, I’ll get back to work. I want to pull all the bins out of the basement and then scrub them down and hose them out.

Then I can start sorting through the stuff and then rearrange it all into categories.

Here’s the list of categories that I’ve come up with so far.

Lubes / Adhesives / Paints
Plumbing / Hoses
Computers / Satellite / Cables
Air Tools
Lawn / Holiday Decorations
Coach Spares / Tools
Cleaning / Waxing Supplies 
Airplanes / Helicopters / Toys

If you’ve got any further ideas or suggestions, let me know.

As I sort things into the bins I’m going to try to do an inventory so I can keep track of what I’ve got.. While I been going through things lately, I come across stuff that I had forgotten I had in the first place.


Today I came across a list of the 10 Best BBQ Chains in the U.S.

Top 10 BBQ Locations.

Jan and I have eaten at 2 of these, and I’ve eaten at another one by myself.

Jan and I both loved Famous Dave’s and eat there whenever we’re near one. We’ve eaten at the Dickey’s in Los Cruces and weren’t overly impressed.

I’ve eaten at the original Jim N’ Nick’s in Birmingham and didn’t care for it. I liked Golden Rule BBQ there much better.

We’ll keep this list in mind and try to check out some of these as we travel around the country.


Finally, Out of the Mouth of Babes:

Lowell, Brandi, and Landon drove up to Oklahoma yesterday to visit Lowell’s parents. When they told Landon they were going to visit his grandparent’s, he asked, “The ones that live in the Truck-House?”

That’s us. I guess we’re now Truck-Houser’s.
