Little Storage Containers

Foumd these two little storage containers at the Dollar Store 2/$1. The have latches on each side, nice for a positive closure.

We like to take things like a little flour or corn starch and need littlevcontainers like this sitting next to ourNewfoundland map for size.

Small Things

We bring a face cloth with us but it was forever falling off the back of the closet door's towel racks.

To solve the problem I screwed one of our kitchen clips to the back of the door.

We also added a hook for our shower bag under the towels. It formerly did not have a home.

The white tray above and to the right of the red clip holds our soap dishes and a hand brush.

Hey, Norm!

On the 17th of this month it'll be two years since you started " Preparing a 1991 Scamp 16 " ...planning anything special to mark the occasion?

Celebration

We will be in clebration mode on May 17th because we begin our trip for the Newfoundland Rally on the 15th and will probably be at Sunset Point Campground (definitely a Lobster Stop) in Harrington, ME, a small sweet little on the water campground.

By the 20th, we should be in North Sydney taking the ferry over. We plan to spend a long weekend around the 23rd in Norris Point at the rally and music festival.

After the rally it's off to explore Newfoundland's Irish Trail in the Avalon Penisula. We both read a fiction book "Latitudes of Melt" that is the book's setting. I have made a travel plan that takes us to every location in the book. After that we head to the Burin Penisula, it parallels the Avalon Penisula to visit the Newfie family home of a Florida friend.

We have also been invited to stop at a Fiberglass trailer's home in Newfoundland. All in all it sounds like a good time.

Ginny went to her hair stylists this week, she's from Newfoundland and is giving us the location of Newfoundland's "Best Cod Tongue Pie" a Newfie delicacy we have yet to try.

Not really knowing me, I am very excited to be returning to Newfoundland, our 5th trip. For me it's going home, to a part of my mind that is not normally accessed by the every day.

As much as I love working on our RVs it doesn't top being on the road. It's something to keep me distracted until we're ready to go.

As we leave we'll take a spin thru the transfer station and weigh our rig to see how it's changed over the last year or so.

Thank's for reminding me.

Index

I frequently get asked where something is in this rather long thread. Today I went thru and made a crude index of some 70 categories.. It is in excel spread sheet form. Later I'll convert it into something easier for most to read.

Oops! It turns out that the program does not upload excel files so this evening I'll convert it into a PDF.

You realize that probably 10,000 Cod will give up their tongues for your pie.

Not to mention cod has become somewhat of an endangered species on the east coast of Canada

Cod Reality

After Mike's '10,000 tongue' comment I began to wonder how big a tongue a Cod has. It turns out that Cod don't have tongues. WHat's refered to as a Cod's tongue is a small muscle from th eneck of the Cod.

As to Carol's comment about the endangered Cod, I always feel when we go to Newfoundland that I eat Cod at least every other day. For some reason there always seems to be enough for local consumption. In the pre-endangered period, Newfoundland was a big exporter of Cod, no longer. It seems they keep it for themselves.

When in Newfoundland, eat as the Newfies eat! I don't blame them for keeping the cod to themselves...there's enough of everything to go around so long as "everyone"'s a small enough group.

Just too bad for the rest of us that we're not in that select crowd- I love cod.

Eat a couple of cod tongue sandwiches for me when you're there, Norm!

Index

I converted the Index to a PDF file.

Hope this helps some one. Nothing about my solar panel installation is in this thread. It all ended up in another thread on Solar.

Francesca,

We pretty much eat Newfoundland food except for possibly breakfast which we usually eat at home (in the trailer). We love seafood and already have plans for some Newfie Lobster.

Today we began stocking up the trailer with non-perishables...... the excitement begins.

Our picture was taken in the province of Nfld on the top of Whale Hill.

Yup when there isnt enough of something to share all around that pretty well sums it up as to why some feel its endangered.

I tried out your index and it works great. Was able to find some various posts.
Would have been nice in different colors. e.g. red for Casita, green for -Uhaul etc etc.

otherwise THANKS for the data file.
