First, there are the practical items
I finally braved the crowds to go into the big RV Show. I ended up parking in a very sandy wash - there was already one RV that had sunk into the sand up to the axle - folks were trying to dig it out. But, I figured the Pilot was pretty light and I do have 4wd with a special 'sand' mode (plus, I was very careful - now, I'll just hope we don't get a freak thunderstorm!).
I was looking for some special microbial based RV Black/Grey Tank treatment - and found it. Unfortunately, it was right next to a very nifty gadget that will allow me to water my batteries without unpacking everything from the storage compartment. Also, it measures the water needed - so I don't have to count on my ability to get it right.
Those are the good things - the bad thing was the price ($80) - but not so bad when contrasted with the cost of replacing two 6 volt deep-cycle batteries!

Now, for the Bling!
I'd been wanting some bling for the outside of the trailer. I picked a shiny, metal twirly Kokopelli that hangs nicely from the rock guard. Even when it's not making bright colors, it casts really neat shadows.

Then I got a rainbow windsock and pole (collapsible and very lightweight).
Campfire evenings and lovely sunsets - of course!
Even though the official RV'ing Women rally is over, there are plenty of women around to do campfires in the evenings and walks during the day. One night there was a drumming circle.
