One more item can be crossed off my list of things to do before going to
Texas this winter. I bought a set of pots and pans to go in the
Hitch Hiker. It is an 18 Piece Wolfgang
Puck set. 6 of the 18 pieces are utensils and pieces 5 are lids. There are also 3 skillets, 2 sauce pans, a
stockpot and a chef’s pot. I’m not
really sure what the chef’s pot is for.
It looks like a large mixing bowel but it has the heavy base to be used
on the stove. I suppose I’ll use it like
a wok and for cooking spaghetti.
Everything is nice heavy stainless steel. I, of course, have several cast iron skillets
already in the Hitch Hiker. I also
purchased a set of mixing bowls for the Hitch Hiker. They are a heavy melamine with a silicone
ring on the bottom which keeps them from sliding. They also have snap on plastic lids. And most importantly, they nest nicely in the
cupboard. This is the second set of them
that I’ve purchased. The first ones were
so nice that instead of putting them in the Hitch Hiker for future use, I kept
them in the Excel to use this summer.
Next on my list of items for the Hitch Hiker are a Mr. Coffee coffee
maker and a toaster.
I’m getting excited about spending the winter in
and seeing kids and grandkids that I’ve spent too little time with. I’m also a little anxious because we haven’t
been putting the savings away like we should.
It’s going to take a fair amount of cash to haul the Hitch Hiker down
there. Also, we don’t have a clear
destination yet. The working plan is to
get into the Austin /
area and find a Corp of Engineers or State park where we can stay while looking
for a nice, reasonably priced RV park where we can have a long term site for
the winter months and have a place to store the fifth wheel during the summer. The hope is that we won’t have to drag it
back and forth. Cedar Park
Maybe we can do some workcamping to make the dollars stretch further. Since we’ll be there over Christmas, maybe I can get a gig as Santa. Anybody know of job openings for Santa’s in
Austin / ? Cedar Park
