Hair of the Dog

It's not what you think.  It's another gift that we get from Zoe, the Wonder Dog.  Hair, or fur, whatever you call it.  And she leaves it all over the Journey.  It tends to drive me...crazy.

On Sunday morning, we woke up at the Candy Hill Campground.  Right in the campground, in their community center is held a nice church service.  All campers are invited and we went, having a good time singing hymns and enjoying a good sermon.  Nice perk included with our campsite.  Another perk is this trolley the campground uses to take campers around to some of the tourist sites in the area.

Before we departed, we decided to attack the hair coating again.  Zoe is not allowed on the "Fur"niture, but that doesn't mean that her hair won't drift all over.

We attack it with two different vacuum cleaners, an upright Eureka,

It has a collapsible handle, making it easy to store.

It does a great job, but of course, you can't get it into all the nooks and crannies around the Journey so we have this Black and Decker handheld.  The Mickey Mouse sticker was put on there by one of the grandkids. :c)

While we were at it, it was time to change the batteries in the smoke detector,

 and just as importantly,  the Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector.

Because we often boondock and run the generator for long intervals, I bought a second CO detector and have it placed in a different location in the Journey's bedroom.  I like redundancy.

We pulled out around noon, did a quick visit to the nearby Camping World and then headed to the Flying J to top off the Journey's fuel tank and propane tank.  I like to top them off as often as I can, not only to avoid condensation in the tanks, but the peace of mind it gives me in case we have some bad weather and need an escape pod (or another chance to sneak away for a weekend). ;c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
