Burbdocking, a.k.a. Visiting Family, a.k.a. Life on the Street

“Insanity runs in my family.

It practically gallops.” – Cary Grant


It has come to this for these two RV venturers: From a 5000 square foot home to living in an RV sitting on the street.

We are currently visiting family. And in an effort to spend as much time with them as possible, and with no RV park as near as we would like, we are parked on a quiet cul-de-sac with a view of the Elizabeth River out the right windows. After asking for permission from the homeowners, it is with their blessing (if “uh…sure” counts as a blessing), that our 42-foot coach is happily harbored.

The question is: How long can we burbdock before the facts of RV life, with its source limitations, require us to hook back up to the niceties of life, i.e. water and sewer?

We arrived with the fresh water tank full and the gray and black tanks empty. So after nearly 2 full days, and with nearly 2 full days to go, how do you think our tank stats stand? The gray and black are fine, with black still registering empty and gray at 1/3. However, and I’m not sure how this is even mathematically possible, our fresh water tank is registering at  1/3 full, and has been since last night.

So there is the rub. What will we do when the faucets fail to provide? I’m not sure. I feel almost primeval thinking about it. Stay tuned!
