1. Clothes and stuff
Me: Even if we do laundry twice during the trip, that makes about 90 T-shirts and 180 socks just for reference.
Butch: Over/under that we return with 11 of the original sock total?
Me: Under is how that works.
2. Outdoor Movie System with 70′ Screen and Projector
Sundance: Um, do we really have the space for that and the 90 T-shirts?
Me: Yes! Because it hooks up to our Netflix account–which I’ll access from our new Wifi hotspot I’m also bringing aboard–we won’t need to pack physical movies, so it’s actually a space-saving item.
Sundance: Um, I’m not sure that’s how that works…
3. Portable Air-Conditioning Unit
Louise: This might not work on the RV since the exhaust is supposed to be mounted in a window.
Me: I’ve anticipated that, so I’ve purchased a second unit to cool the hot air coming out of the back of the first unit because I’m good at Science.
Louise: I’m not really sure that’s how that works…
4. Portable Ice Maker
Butch: Doesn’t the freezer on the RV do that already?
Me: Technically, yes. But I had to remove the trays to make room for the refrigerant for the new air conditioners.
Butch: Is that the way that’s supposed to work?
5. Portable Propane Grill
Sundance: Don’t all the campgrounds we’re going to provide grills at each site?
Me: Yes, but then we’d have to pack charcoal and lighter fluid and 2 is more than 1 so we’re saving room because I’m even better at math.
Sundance: Now I know that’s not how that works…
6. Extra large capacity Blender
Louise: Should we limit our cocktail choices to selections that don’t need appliances that take up counter space?
Me: Louise, we’re campers not barbarians.
Louise: You’re right–that’s exactly how that works.
