then on to the water station where I waited and waited and waited for the water tank to fill. It was a rare thing for my water tank to be completely empty, so it to a long, long, long, long time to fill. I was walking around standing in the sunshine part of the time, but with the wind blowing, it wasn't really warm. So I walked around on the leeward side of the motorhome ( but shady), and was still cold. I bent over to check for the tank overflow (no luck), stood in the sun, looked for the tank overflow on the sunny side (no luck), went back to the leeward side, checked the faucet (I did turn the faucet on, didn't I?) So, on and on and on I went back and forth trying to survive the session of windy cold water tank filling.

Next stop was the gas station, to fill the gas tank so that the generator could run when it was needed. One of the main considerations in picking the gas station is the entrance and egress routes available for a large vehicle like a motorhome or trailer. The price is very important as well, but if one cannot get into or out of the station, the price doesn't matter. So I use a smart phone app called Gas Buddy which tells me the best prices. I have to decide on the access myself. I've never seen an app for access. When all this is accomplished, it's back to my desert boondocking site!
Back at the campsite, I park and make sure I am level, put the slides out, and reposition the dog's fence.
Then it's time for the La-Z-boy ! A little rest is deserved!
