sink/stove combo: I had to go out to the driveway to examine exactly what I have in the Boler
, even though we just got back from camping.
You know, if I had one of those fancy combo's, I would love it, especially the older-style European one pictured.
But I love the galley I have now, because I have learned how best to use it. The countertop behind the sink and stove is the ideal length for storing the two-by-four we use while travelling to keep the food box/lego box/back packs wedged tightly under the bunk/sofa.
The stove and sink must both be uncovered because the wash water is warming on two "hobs" while the sink houses a Rubbermaid basin I found that fits it exactly. We have aded on a counter-top extension so that the child may safely dry dishes without scorching his elbows.
The space behind the stove top, right next to the door is reserved for things one might want to fetch from outside without taking off shoes: the clicker for starting fires, the flashlight, the rum and the coke.
I would have to re-learn a lot of things to change my ways. But driving home from every camping trip, I can't help but think, "If only this were moved there, how wonderful life would be!"
