Got my Grandpa Gus's (Rodent repellent) pouches spread out in the storage shed and inside the camper.
Sprayed around perimeter and removed food related items.
Bonus: Didn't know at the time but i pulled my pectoral muscle and tendon (According to Doc) while rolling the pop up around.
Woke up and could barely move my arm and thought i slept on it wrong.
Like a idiot i was in to big of a hurry to put the wheel on the jack and had to of injured myself
that way.

I totaled the nights camping in the trailer (see my signature) and this was the best year since '19. That's in spite of canceling two ladies' trips with my friend, due to each of us having surgery timed to cancel a trip.
Taking it to the shop in a bit, for the black tank valve replacement, again. Hoping it works this time. Just a bit more laundry to do before I stash bedding & towels in huge bags for the winter.

I bought another set of 12v led strip lights for the popup hoping this set lasts longer then two camping trips. I won’t install them until closer to spring not wanting to risk weather deterioration before I get A chance to try it. The first set claimed they were weather proof but somehow the plastic deteriorated quick when in the sun. My camper is stored in a storage yard so not much I can do about that. Then again i refuse to spend the $$$ for the RV strip lights you see at camping world.
We got solar powered string lights. They have lasted 2 seasons, even spending a couple of nights in the rain.

Unfortunately I don't camp in full sun much and my poor solar panel for the camper has to chase the sun as it is so I have a chance of charging the battery. I have tried solar lights with those itty bitty solar panels, they can never get enough charge to do any good. Perhaps though they make better ones or ones I could attach to my solar controller. I probably should research it more over the winter season.

Total mileage for 2022 was 4410 miles, 3679 since new tires on the first trip of the year. We only camped in NM, CO, and AZ, so the longest travel day was about 450 miles, coming home from Tucson the other day. Otherwise, we had a few about 330 miles, others were less.
Dropped the trailer off the trailer for the waste tank repair and the place was abolutely crazy. I had to call from the entry drive to ask where they wanted me to park for the moment. At least we're in no hurry for it to be fixed, it will be march or so before first trip next year.

I've found In most cases a pencil and paper is easier and faster than any app.
Now you tell me. After I set up way too much home networking and a server (or four) and paid for a vm host to hold the VPN so I could access the recipes app running in the closet from anywhere there's a cell signal...

(cause I certainly wouldn't have done all that anyway)
