My husband and I absolutely love to travel. Ever since the kids left home, we have spent our years traveling the world. We’ve been to every continent and to thirty different countries. About a year ago, we decided to travel our own nation. In order to be more free to travel, we decided to sell our house and purchase a fifth wheel camper to travel stateside in. Living in a camper full-time is quite interesting. It’s quite a small space to fit all of our things in, but we have learned to adapt to minimal living. During the holidays from the end of November to after New Years, we stayed on our oldest son’s property in our fifth wheel. He lives way up North, so we had to prepare our fifth wheel for winter living. Thankfully, it is an all season camper which made winterizing it much easier. Something that we weren’t used to is having to make sure we had enough propane to last us. A few nights before Christmas, we learned a hard lesson. In the middle of the night, we ran out of propane, and our fifth wheel got cold quite quickly. My husband and I didn’t realize that the propane had run out because we were warm and toasty in bed with our heated mattress pad. The next morning, however, we woke up to a really cold camper and frozen pipes. It took my husband and son almost an an entire day to thaw out the pipes. Thank goodness there was no major damage done to the camper. After that incident, we bought a second propane tank for backup just in case we ran out again. I am so glad that we don’t live in a cold area all winter long.
