We haven’t gone anywhere, promise! Busy time of year. Our annual trip to Jamaica came to an end about three weeks back. We sold the old Jeep and bought a new one at the end of March. We’ve got one son, Henry, playing baseball and the other, Owen, in track. Henry, the oldest, is graduating this spring and going into the Marines. Recruiters, medical records, a trip to MEPS, whew! And to top it all off, the leach line on out septic system died so we get to put in another one. The joys of owning a home!
But all that has reminded us exactly why we want to hit the road. We know RVing isn’t all Guns n Roses…or is that wine and roses? ;)… but even out relatively quiet semi-retired life out in the country can get busy and stressful. We want simplicity. We want peace and quiet. No school, no ceremonies, no sports (well we might miss seeing the boys play but not the rest of it), no home repairs, no yard work (that’s coming soon), blah, blah, blah.
We promise to get back on schedule and finish our choosing an RV series. But the Jeep was a first step. That is part of the plan, something you know if you’ve been reading. For several reasons, we decided to buy it now instead of later. We love it. It’s a great vehicle and with the modification we plan to make to it, the Jeep will take us on many exciting adventures. In the mean time, her she is:
