Strange…I’ve been to Wal-Mart and Kmart, and they’re both out of two items that I want: a 5-gallon diesel fuel can, and marshmallow Peeps. I can maybe understand being out of fuel cans, but Peeps? It’s almost Halloween, and everybody seems to be out of them. It’s bad enough that I often have to drive to several stores to find the best deal on something I’m planning on buying, but having to drive all over town just to find a store that has a common, everyday item in stock is ridiculous.
I bought an inverter yesterday so I can use my laptop in my truck, and it’s simply stupid that I didn’t do it sooner. It works quite nicely though, and it was surprisingly inexpensive. I went on a short drive today with my GPS hooked up to the computer to make sure the tracking works. Now, I’m wondering what else I can plug in for next week’s trip, but that would sort of defeat the whole purpose of camping. I used to want a generator to bring camping, but the more time I’ve had to think about it, the less I want one. However, it would be nice to be able to use my battery charger, because there have been occasions where the battery in the trailer died and left us without the use of the water pump and lights.
