Beware of skimmers at the pumps AGAIN:
Until gas pumps are outfitted with the anti skimming technology that is being developed for ATMs, consumers concerned consumers should use a credit card at the pump or head inside to pay. It is important to note that while using your debit card as credit at the pump won't expose your PIN number to the perps, it doesn't afford you the same protections as using credit.” From: http://www.walletpop.com/blog/2010/02/25/paying-at-the-pump-could-cost-extra-thanks-to-skimmers/?icid=main|htmlws-main-n|dl4|link4|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.walletpop.com%2Fblog%2F2010%2F02%2F25%2Fpaying-at-the-pump-could-cost-extra-thanks-to-skimmers%2F
I know, I know, I should use tiny URLs.
Apart from all the usual daily chores, I spent the day catching up on emails, and sorting out my ‘ditty bag’ as my late DH used to call it. He was an OTR trucker for a while, and his bag was always packed ready for the next trip. Just clean underwear, change of clothes or two, toilet articles and his carton of cigarettes. Then all he had to pack was his Thermos of coffee.
I got in the habit of keeping a ditty bag packed when my wonderful previous mother-in-law, (my youngest son’s grandma in OK), started to go downhill in her 80's. I never knew if it would be a mad dash in a car, or more leisurely journey in the RV.
Then, I got used to it being so easy to grab when going on an RV trip, but it kinda grew!
I never went on a trip unless it was in the RV. It stays packed down with all the regular stuff; coffee maker, dishes, pillows, sheets, blankets, (in suck down bags), towels, maps, bird books, canned food, but toilet articles tend to melt during these long, hot summers, so they can’t be left in there.
Another bag, pink, with a more expanded supply of toilet and medical supplies, for the RV.
All the bags are squashable, so they will fit in crevices in the RV. I don't like bins, they take up too much room. Then all I have to pack are the things on my RV list; like the fridge food, dry food, (i.e coffee, creamer, sugar), compressor, laptop, chargers, camera, Bobcat's stroller, more clothes, etc. Then Bobcat in her carrier. That still takes a while!
Maybe it is Hitch Itch! The weather is starting to get better, so I wish I could have gone on a trip today.
