Christmas Gift and Season’s Greetings

Barbie and I went to Home Depot today and bought a mutual Christmas gift for each other. Many rvers can relate to an issue when I say the 2 door refrigerator in our 2001 Newmar Kountry Star motorhome has us longing for some additional refrigerator space. That became more of an issue when we went from weekenders to fulltimers (95% anyway), last June. At our rv site in the Falls View section of River Vista Mountain Village, in Dillard, GA, we added a 3.9 cubic ft Haier to our storage shed this summer. It served us well. The only criticism we had was it had but one door and once it was opened you could access the smaller door for the freezer section. Still, problem solved at our summer home.

Back to today-the trip to Home Depot was to purchase a similar compact refrigerator for our storage “unit” here at our site at Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park (RCC), here in Crystal River, FL. We were looking for one of similar size to what we had in GA, but we really wanted 2 doors with a separate door for the freezer compartment. We found a Magic Chef that fit the bill.

Magic Chef Refrig This sleek and functional Magic Chef 4.0 cu. ft. compact refrigerator features a 2-door design that separates the fridge and freezer compartments like that of a much larger unit. This provides an uncommon amount of freezer space to help us stock up on convenience foods and items that need to be frozen. The durable, easy-to-clean glass refrigerator shelves will help keep foods organized and a can dispenser in the door keeps soda handy so you can grab it. Sweeeeet ! If you’ve followed this blog, you know that the new home for this refrigerator is our storage “unit” here at RCC, our utility trailer, the “Prince”, which is parked right behind the motorhome.

Now all we need to do is put the carpet in the “Prince” and run the electric cord to it and we’re in business. So with our present resolved, it is time to send all of our readers  a holiday greeting card, our gift to you. Sorry, no palm trees, just snowflakes and a little snow for the ambiance. Here you go.
