We purchased a Fotya 2.5 kg mini washing machine for $50.00 (R.R.P. $129.00 plus freight) delivered which was on a 66% discount special, as a wash takes about 20 minutes we intend to do the 'socks, jocks & shirts' every second day which means we will only have to do a big wash once a week. Tested it with a load works great all done in 20 minutes.
Below is a map of our proposed rout and does not include side trips
After much research I have decided to fill the tires with Nitrogen, it seems that there could be a slight advantage especially as we are travelling such a long distance as the tire pressures will remain more constant, saving a small amount in fuel and tire-maintenance costs. At $50.00 for all six figured it was worth the trial.
Spent the morning packing all the tools and spares and finding a place for everything, worked out well but from experience I know there will be changes as we find out what needs to be easily and quickly got to. Also got the Lansky 5 stone sharpening system out and put a good cutting edge on my pocket knife and sorted the emergency back pack out so all we need to do is pack the perishables into the caravan on Friday hook up and then after our traditional breakfast at the big M we will be on our way.
Until next time ....................... Forget the bad.
