Slow & Steady

We are slowly getting things ready for the big road trip. About 4 weeks or so left before we leave NC. Trying to get things sorted, stowed, and backed up is just tedious. I feel like we shouldn’t have to go through this again. We moved from a 1700 sq ft house in 2007 and even though we have not collected THAT much — it is more than this RV can handle. Well, more than I can handle in this RV. I detest clutter. A place for everything and everything in its place.

But, we are making progress – slow and steady.

Michael is working on plotting the course and stop-overs. It makes me crazy because we don’t have solid dates. It has been “in a few weeks” since last Autumn. Soooooo… I am trying not to get worked up and let it just be what it is. But, being the planner that I am – I admit it is driving me a bit wonky.

Friday we went going over to a friends for BBQ chicken and fixins. She was heading out for while and as an RVer you HATE to have to cook the night before you get up early and hit the road. Potluck time!!

 

RV Living

We just returned from 2 weeks in the motorhome. It was quite fun and much different than 5th Wheel living — peeing at 60mph is a thrill. The motorhome made even a WV Wal-Mart parking lot feel like home. The dogs are getting used to it – as well they should.

We talked about going back to full time almost immediately after we sold our 5th Wheel last year. So it is no surprise to anyone that we are looking to going back to full-timing.

Which means a few things — we have to start reigning in the hobbies that take up so much space and downsizing. While the RV does have 4 (albeit not-so-great tvs) .. we need to start thinking about selling off stuff and try very hard not to acquire new stuff.

Time will tell. There is no calendar set on this move — we are just in planning phase now. But since we have the motorhome, we have space and dimensions to think about and make concrete plans.

Yay us.
