The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind. We're only just now starting to realize the magnitude of what we're doing. Here's a recap of the past couple of weeks.
We quit our jobs. We sold almost everything we own. We moved a few sentimental and historical things to a storage locker. We moved a few things we're taking with us to the RV. We made the last modifications so we can tow our Jeep. We've said goodbye to a lot of really good friends. It's all been quite chaotic really.
We've had so many well wishes that it's been more than a little overwhelming. By far the hardest part about this new adventure is leaving our friends. The send-off parties and fond words have been really special. It's made us realize how many great friends we have in our lives.
Living in the RV is proving to be just as great as we imagined. Really very similar to a condo that we drive around. We're still getting used to a few peculiar things like the climate control. It's automatic, but a bit noisier than a conventional house, so we give it more manual attention. Oh, and there's the whole issue of waste management, but it's really not so bad.
Boots (our cat) has adapted to life on the road much faster than we expected. As soon as she got to the RV she seemed to remember it from her weekend trip to Camas to visit Grandma. She has quickly taken ownership of things and has seemed curious about all of the new sights and sounds. She's still not fond of the moving around part, but she seems pleased to have us around.
So, where are we headed? Right now we're in Moses Lake, WA on our way to Coeur d'Alene, ID for the weekend. We're on a path to Indianapolis, IN for the Formula 1 race from the 26th to the 29th of September. It's likely that we'll wander down through Yellowstone National Park for a few days. If you have any Yellowstone tips or things we should be on the lookout for when we get there, send us mail...
