This woman is over across the way from us. She is in a Ford Transit van. Most all vans are fixed up by their owner to live out from. You don’t buy them ready-made. I can see she has solar panels on top. But I also see she has a plug-in on the side. See the yellow extension cord. That is unusual for a van. That is also a pretty slick modification. I admired it.
Then a little spark went off in my head. OMG! Why didn’t I think of an extension cord? See, our home comes with a twenty-foot long power cord to plug into electricity. It is a heavy duty thick electrical cord. It is a real challenge for me to get that thing back into its tiny compartment. It is as if trying to coil up the transatlantic cable.
Why I could just plug it to an extension cord and run the extension cord out to the electrical hook-up. So much simpler. I’ve only had this vehicle for fifteen years. You can’t rush genius. Well to be fair to myself, I rarely plug in so the issue didn’t surface all that much. Its only that we are out on the road later in the year now, a bit colder and I have been using that electric heater more than ever. A short bright yellow (don’t like red) extension cord is on my shopping list now.
Doing some planning on where we will be staying on down the road I came across a couple of reviews for the Walmart in Hobbs, New Mexico.
