Beating the frost south

My immediate goal is to get south of the encroaching cold weather before my tanks freeze. The fresh water tank should be no problem - it's nestled inside under the kitchen counter - but the gray water and black water tanks are hung under the floor and I'm afraid they might freeze and burst. The last couple of weeks I've been keeping an eye on them and so far so good even though we've had a few nights in the low twenties in Red Rock there seems to be enough thermal mass to keep them from freezing.

On toward Ikea

Friday took me as far as Clarion PA, on my way to visit an Ikea store. The nearest along my route southward is the store near Pittsburg PA. I'm looking for some light weight cabinets to serve as a pedestal for the desk top I've built in the back living area of the Lazy Daze.

Normal Damage

Personally, I've never been normal. But what I've only recently discovered is how much damage being made to feel I should be has done over the years. This is a revelation of the highest order and unspeakably liberating, once you've processed the accumulated side-effects.
