Hello from Seaside, Oregon. Seaside, a beautiful coastal community has historically been one of the Oregon Coast’s most visited and popular oceanfront resorts and is located only 80 miles from Portland. There are lots of activities around the area besides walking on the beach and is close to the winter home of the Lewis and Clark Expedition at Fort Clatsop. A fun place to spend some time. We are here with several RV friends for 2 weeks of sightseeing, morning coffee and goodies, 4 p.m. cocktails and snacks and sometimes either dinner or dessert! Living and traveling in an RV is the best life ever with lots of great food, new recipes, laughs, games and visiting with friends and meeting new ones.
Great Tip: 30 Awesome things to do in retirement. Many of us living and traveling in an RV are retired or at least semi-retired. This list may give you some ideas of ways to spend your time whether while you’re traveling or sitting in a warm spot during the winter or cool spot during the summer. The list of ideas are endless…use your creativity. Here are 2 great lists. http://www.moneytalksnews.com/slideshows/30-awesome-things-retirement/?all=1. http://earlyretirementextreme.com/wiki/index.php?title=Long_list_of_things_to_do_when_you_retire
Tip: Keep tabs on the stuff in your freezer! We just had to replace our Norcold fridge and chose to purchase a residential one that would fit in the space. It not only gave us another 3.5 cubic feet of fridge and freezer space but weighs one hundred pounds less and was an easy install. It also gave us a chance to really sort through things in both the fridge and freezer and get rid of things that we had forgotten and had become freezer burned or out of date. I found this article online and thought it was worth sharing. Ways to keep foods from freezer burning. http://tiphero.com/avoid-freezer-burn/?
A Tip Worth Trying: I have used Scrubbing Bubbles in the shower for years and it does a great job but it is not cheap and of course has chemicals in it. I saw this the other day and am certainly going to try it. I keep both products in the RV so I don’t have to purchase anything to try it and IF it works, I will save both space and money. http://tiphero.com/2-ingredient-shower-cleaner/? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hyX_-Qev7o.
