All Around The Campfire

My RVing Excuses

You’d think that I’d have all the time in the world to post updates…while we’re driving, while I’m curled up in bed at night with a movie, when we’re having a campground day to clean and do laundry. Even when we are trapped in the motorhome for days on end by the coldest winter in the history of the warm states (if that can’t be verified through official channels, just trust me that it’s freezing), I find excuses to ignore my MacBook.

  • We are constantly planning the next stage of our trip. Where will we go? What will we see? Where will we stay? How long? If I had my way every single day would be planned a year out. That’s how I operate. The husband thinks we should fly by the seat of our pants. It’s killing me! I only plan a few days at a time now. That’s now how the world works!
  • I read a lot. I’ve always loved reading, but it’s taken a back burner for a long time. I’m currently rereading the Outlander series, because I love it, and I can read it as many times as I want, so there! And then I’m going to reread Harry Potter. Some people think that reading books more than once is dumb. Those people are wrong.
  • We grocery shop constantly. We have very little space for food storage, so it seems like we are at the grocery store at least every other day.  Plus, one of our kids decided to join us for a few weeks of travel. Do you know how much a 20 year boy eats? Go buy stock in Kraft, because we go through so much macaroni and cheese.
  • We picked up a couple of inexpensive bicycles. We’ve been talking about it for awhile, and I hope we get a lot of use out of them. In the meantime we’re seasoning our butts by riding around campgrounds. My butt is not used to bike seats anymore.
  • I spend way too much time cleaning. Tiny motorhome + 3 adults + 1 cat = constant disaster.
  • Exploring takes top priority. That is the whole point of this travel thing after all. We are always on the lookout for something fun to see. To be truly honest, we are kind of skimming the country rather than in depth exploration. We plan to do this again and concentrate on the areas we really enjoyed the most. Also, there will be a bigger motorhome. I’d like one with a comfortable place to sit. I’d give the husband’s left leg for a nice sofa. We have a dinette and the swiveling driver and passenger seats. They are all about as soft as rocks, and since the swivel seats are a step down in the cab, when I sit on one facing the living area, my knees are stuck to my face.

Oh well, I’ll work on being better tomorrow. Today I’m busy.
