A few posts ago~I mentioned that I would show you what I have to do to pack up the interior of Homey before we travel.
After living 10 years of fulltime living in Homey..we kinda like to think we have the packing thing down..I am always tweaking things to make it easier.
Recently we were parked in Sicksta side yard..for a few months..
Under this make shift table is the steering wheel.
All of this gets packed away, as well as all of the plants in the front window.
In the kitchen I take down the coffee pot,and any items that aren't secure.
The tray and basket don’t move while traveling…they both have non slip fabric underneath..
The white lines you see on the window is soap~I put it there because our windows are reflective and the birds think the yard continues thru them…the white marks show them there is something to avoid..works pretty good!
I pack away the hanging crystal chandelier and everything on the dining table.
The plant is packed away..the pink frog candle holders, little blue bird and rock pyramids are secured with putty and stay.
All dishes are put in the cabinets with a non slip fabric between them so that they don’t rattle and annoy us as we travel. Same goes for cups, glasses..all wrapped or placed in the cupboard between cardboard separators.
Assortment of knick knacks that get wrapped up and stored in the bathroom cupboard.
The bedroom pretty much stays the same..the chandelier comes down ~otherwise everything else you see is secure.
The bedroom slide comes in and the bed just about fills the whole room.
See my cool Birdie mirror stick ons from Home Goods?
I make sure our sliding pocket doors~We have three of them…are locked so they wont slide back and forth as we are driving. All cupboards and closets are checked to make sure they are secure.
I check the refrigerator to make sure items are secured by the sliding bar that holds them tightly in, so that they don’t fall out when we open the refrig. door after traveling.
The inside is ready to roll…I wonder if Jeff is finished with his outside packing chores?
Jeff unhooks the electricity and water. He packs away the bird feeders and outdoor patio carpet. He makes sure the TV antenna is lowered.He attaches the car to the back of Homey.
I start Homey while he is outside and Jeff checks the car and Homeys lights to make sure they are all working correctly when I press on the brake, hazard lights etc.
I pull the Homey forward to make sure the cars tires are rotating.
We say our Goodbyes…
Off we go….Jeff in the driver seat.
I have a license to drive this massive vehicle but choose not to... I know enough to get us to safety if anything were to happen to Jeff.
We may forget one or two items and have to pick up a broken something or secure something that is making noise in the cupboard.
We know people that have driven away without unhooking their electrical cord.. others who forgot to unhook their sewer lines…Some who's antenna was still up..the scary list goes on and on..Yikes..
I'm not telling who!
