Free $25.00, Cool Summer Salad, RV Repairs

Cyclone Tank VentYep, I got this for FREE!

If you’re like me, you get a lot of flyers, etc… in the mail.  Most of the time they go straight to “file 13,” but the latest flyer from Camping World caught my eye.  There was a $25.00 coupon on the page that said “no strings attached.”  So, on a little Sunday drive to El Paso, I armed myself with the coupon to visit the store in Anthony, Texas.

Oh my goodness it WAS absolutely true! 

I had been considering buying this RV Cyclone Holding Tank Vent on, and even though the price was inflated at Camping World, I didn’t have to put out any cash!  ($23.99 at Camping World and $15.54 at  I was $1.01 short so I pony-ed out a little extra to buy a RV outdoor carpet stake kit for $4.99.  (Desert Diva pats herself on the back for being a smart shopper and saving money! )

It’s heating up here in Southern New Mexico

Thai Quinoa Salad

When the temperatures begin to climb, I prefer light, “cool” foods.  I found this delicious (and healthy) vegan salad at Ambitious Kitchen.  Even though I can’t call myself a vegan (or even a vegetarian), I’m interest in eating healthier and don’t mind experimenting.  If wine was on the “no” list for vegetarians/vegans I would definitely be “out!”  😉

Waiting to make “a run for it!”

The Dolphin is FINALLY in the shop…

When I go traveling for an extended period of time, I don’t like “surprises” on the road.  I know that mechanical things do happen, but I like to have a mechanic that I trust here in Las Cruces, do a “shake-down.”  I had some work done in May (oil change, replace worn belts, replace master cylinder on brakes) but I still needed the valves adjusted and a potential transmission leak (very slow) checked out.  He couldn’t get it back in his shop until yesterday and hopefully everything will be fixed and the price will be low.

Do you shop at

Please take a look at my shop in the top toolbar and find something you need.  (There’s no extra cost to you, but I “do” get a small commission – even from Canadian buyers on Canada! – you just have to “click-through” from this site.

I’ve worked really hard to set up this “little shop” with items of interest to RV’ers.  I’ve also put in category links for our precious “fur babies!”  😉  If you click on the category links, there is a drop down menu of more specific items.  If you have ideas for categories/items you’d like to see, please let me know and I’ll add them!

If you’re going to buy something anyway, I’d appreciate you buying items through this website!  🙂  Don’t worry, this won’t be a reoccurring plug – I just appreciate it when people drop by my “little corner of the world” and leave a comment!  🙂

Have a great Tuesday and thanks for visiting!

Share the Love!

    Boy, that salad looks delicious,vegan or not! I’m with you on the wine. On my diet it’s considered a “fruit”. Glad to hear you’re going through the check list for your upcoming travels.

      Hey, I LIKE that – now I’m going to consider wine a fruit! 🙂 Hopefully, things will check out with the RV and I’ll be on the road soon!

    When I first glanced at your salad I thought it was some kind of sea creature, it was so pretty. I am so far from being vegan that cows run and hide when they see me coming. Good deal on your vent fan. You’ll like that one.

    Always nice to get a good deal.

  5. I used to get those Camping World coupons all the time when I lived in one place–I’ll have to see if I can get them online now that I’m traveling. They sure can be useful.

    Glad to hear you’re getting closer to starting your summer travels!

    Oh yum, yum…I’m no where near veggie either, but I do love a good, cool salad. Looks delicious!!
    Hope the tune-up at the mechanics is painless.

      I finished off the rest of the salad tonight – it’s hovering around 100 degrees here and cool foods are “in.” 🙂
