I had never heard of Reflectix®before I became a nomad, though I had—as most of you likely have—seen it before. The most common way to be introduced to it is to see one of those shiny, metallic-looking, lightweight accordion-style windshield sun shades. In fact, I’d owned a couple of these when I learned that the material out of which they’re made is called Reflectix.
No way did I want to deal with a fire or get that blasted blade stuck in there. So I reversed the drill and backed it out, stopping to consider my options. I’d originally chosen that blade so I would have a bit of maneuvering room for my fingers in pushing the wires through the insulation. But that was solely for my convenience, and wasn’t completely necessary. All that was really important was that the wires got through.
Suffice to say, the first leg of my full time RV life was a journey of epic proportions, both in terms of time and distance, and of mental/emotional ground covered. Here are the highlights of the lead-up stage, before Idgie and I really got on the road. More to follow in subsequent posts.
