Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

A Side Trip

Sometimes we just like a day in town. Often this notion is prompted by a desire to shop for something or somewhere. This time it was a search for a 12V water pump to assist getting water in the tanks. Before I tell you this story you need to know that we have rarely ran out of water. As most boondockers will know, water conservation becomes second nature. When you also add that we have large tanks and even larger holding tanks, this isn't a common issue. But we like to be prepared, and we do carry 5 gallon water containers to fill with. The challenge that presents is the trailer is designed to need pressure to fill.

We have tried a few ways, including setting the water tank high and using nature's gravity, but that takes a LONG time (actually with Don and Ivan one beer per tank). So thus the reason to find a pump. It wasn't as easy as we thought to find an affordable 12V pump, but we did.

With that chore out of the way we took a scenic drive back, visiting Virginia Cascades, Henry Forks and Mesa Falls.

Another great day!
