the last kiddo is out of the house and in college, so the wife got a dog...
now my "last thing to buy" is an apparently endless list of items to support a canine while traveling and camping.
lose a kid and gain a dog...both want to eat all the time, neither can mow a yard or take out the trash, and neither one listens to me. not sure what the objective was...
.
Try having both at the same time....and throw in a cat who thinks he runs the house. :screamcat:
.
Yeah, two teens, two cats, and a dog here. . . I still give 'em all hell about cleaning up after themselves, not sneaking out at every chance, staying off the counters (I'll leave it up to you to decide who gets on the counters), and overall having respect that others use the same common spaces.

It's maddening at times.

Got a nice new Blue Sea 12 circuit sub panel for adding the same style solar and deep cycle system to my van as I've had in my trailer for years. Can be used for 24hr circuits, if need be.

Pays to keep an eye on prices, as this dropped in price by almost ten bucks so I grabbed one, and has already gone back up by four bucks overnight, though still lower than they usually have it and definitely lower than other places like the big box stores or West Marine (which I've found, at least here on the Maine coast, often has the best price on items I'm after).

Sometimes I think they do that because I have it in my cart "save for later" for ages without purchasing. If enough have it in their cart or wish list, the algorithms nudge the price around to tempt folks. When it drops sufficiently, I'll grab whatever. Saw the price on a nice warm-weather shirt I'd been eyeing drop by half once, so snapped it up.

Now I wish they'd do that with some of the heavy duty crimping tools I'd like to have.

I bought a new portable firepit (Popup firepit) and a new backpacking/minimalist chair. Next up will be one of a few options: the final 2 spot lights for my roof rack, ARB Linx setup for full air system and fridge control or I'll be finally ordering a new hybrid bumper.

Going to visit my eldest in Houston this long weekend for his birthday, so I got the Houston City Pass. Plan to visit the Space Center, Downtown Aquarium, Museum of Natural Science, Zoo, and Kemah Boardwalk for one low price.

Last thing was a Den-Dry anti-condensation matt for under the rtt mattress, and some spare parts for the All-In-one diesel heater. All were preventatives. Don’t want mold in my tent and don’t want mechanical failures in my gear that I cannot fix in the field. As simple as they are, these CDHs, like lanterns and stoves or any thing else, could require some field-fixin. Last thing I need/want is a “cold woman” in my tent. She might resist my urge-to-merge if she’s trying to stay warm...
