We made it to South Jordan, Utah, out in the Southwest 'burbs of Salt Lake City. As you may recall, we are assisting Sraddha's nephew, Tyler, move into his new home. Tyler is a widower with 4 small girls, his wife Lissel (Sraddha's niece) passed away unexpectedly last December a week before Christmas.

We even hooked up power to the house using our big extension cords. I only blew the 20 amp circuit once last night. Found out that I can run either the hot water heater, the microwave, or the space heater along with the electric blankets and fridge and TV, but not 2 of the 3. That's ok. We turned on the propane water heater and I turned off the space heater when I warmed up leftovers in the microwave.
We managed to get a fair amount of unpacking down yesterday and will do more today. Monday we will do even more, and receive another small trailer load of things which were temporarily stored back in a neighbors garage.
Thankfully one of Tyler's "boy genius" friends got the internet wifi working so I can write blog without using up our precious bandwidth. I also have been able to download all the latest software updates for our computers and IOS devices. Woo Hoo. Always a bonus for us with limited monthly bandwidth.
The other bonus is free rent space. Most RV campgrounds cost $30-$35 per night. State parks range from $25-$30. BLM and National Forest Campgrounds are $3-$8 with senior access pass. So we like to find free places occasionally. We like to boondock out in the "boonies". Now we are boondocking in the "burbs"! Average daily rent for 2014 is $14 so far.
