TLE and I both wanted to get out of the coach for a few hours so we drove the VW into town to check out the local Goodwill and St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores. We love the St. Vincent de Paul (Catholic) thrift stores wherever we have come across them, and have often found very good deals, and Wednesday was no exception.
At Goodwill I found two more pairs of shorts, one pair with the tags still on them, and two long sleeve, button down collar shirts (Brooks Bros. and Hunt Club) for $3.75 each. TLE found a t-shirt. At St. Vincent de Paul's I found a brand new Rugby shirt to add to my collection.....I love Rugby shirts! But, the big score of the day was yet to come. For a couple of weeks we have been talking about the need to have some sort of outdoor stove to use this summer while we are in Lake Tahoe. We used to carry a large 3 burner CampChef Tahoe stove around with us, but we never used it unless we were going to be in an area for an extended time, and the weather was conducive to outdoor cooking.....that was rarely the case our first year on the road. Ultimately we stored it in my sister's basement in Spokane back in 2012, and finally just gave it to my sister and brother-in-law this past summer when we were back in Spokane. This day I found a cosmetically roughed up Coleman 2 burner propane camp stove for $4.00, but it works, and has all the parts! A Coleman 2 burner stove would cost close to $50 new.
