Toto’s microwave oven is a designer model — it says so right on the door. A big white label on the bottom of the door advises us to remove the interior carousel plate before we travel. I have an image of someone opening their trailer door after a tow down to the lake and discovering (a) an open microwave oven door and (b) many bits of shattered glass glittering from the floor. Enough to make you just shut the door, drive home, and put the trailer on the market, and maybe the boat, too.
Well, not us. We have a label. We are not going to make that mistake. Unless we forget the label-reading item in our 266-step Departure Checklist.
We have actually used this microwave oven already — to reheat coffee. I think Sooz might have used it to heat water, once, for tea. Our experience to-date suggests it is somewhat less powerful than the one we have at home. It’s a little slower to get things sufficiently warmed. But it’s not bad for the wilderness. Note: we can’t use it in the real wilderness. Like the air conditioner, it needs a current bush. It won’t work on battery power alone. When we’re out on the tundra we’ll have to heat things the old fashioned way, by burning something.
Now, let’s turn around (are you dizzy yet?) and take a look at the front (and only) door. Here, it’s partially obscured by a retractable screen door (in this case, not retracted). Toto hates insects. Yes, Toto is a hater. I had thought we were past all that in our family, but there it is.
I think we were going to head into the bathroom and bedroom next — the master suite, as it were. Well those pictures are on the other computer so just wait for a minute.
Okay here. This is up at the front of the trailer, forward of the door we just examined. This is where we go to get clean and do any deep thinking.
We’ll get to the bedroom — it always happens, eventually. Not today though. We’re preparing for an extended trip and we have some planning to do. And maybe I should get my work done.Sharing is caring!
Following is daring.
