The obvious and not so obvious
Apparently keeping up with blogging AND preparing for our family of 8 to leave on our big summer road trip...is too much for me.
If you follow along on twitter, you will know that we did in fact began our big adventure yesterday. It was a week late, a different tow vehicle and rearranged plans...but thats okay. At least tonight I am blogging from the couch in our rv, while its moving. (grin)
We only made it to minnesota today. Taking it slow... Meeting up with a dear blog friend, her absolutely wonderful family and a friend of hers that reads my blog but had never said hello before. :) And stopping at ikea, for the first time in 10 years. Good times!
As expected we already had our first "hiccup". Apparently a rock flew up and broke the drain valve off of our fresh water take...can you see where this is going? We arrived last night with no water left in our tank. It was an easy fix, in the home depot parking lot, where our blog friends came and found us. Then I did the dishes and flushed the toilet as we followed them to the park.
We stocked the pantry yesterday. Well... actually "stuffed" the pantry, fridge and under bed storage is a more accurate description. I tried to get everything we would need for a month except fresh food which we are hoping to find farmers markets and road side stands along the way.
We left all our pets at home with grandma and grandpa. Miss them already but it is nice too not have the extra responsibility on the road.
Its almost midnight and we just stopped for the night. Glad I was able to sneak a few moments to write.
Can't wait to share more with you tommorrow! Talk to you soon friends!
