Week 1 is under my belt! I've experienced much more than I can include here, but I'd like to share some highlights!
Surprises: I can live very comfortably with less water, electricity, auditory stimuli, food, changes of clothes and space.
Being flexible regarding.....EVERYTHING is not only key...but FUN!
Choosing joy is easier than I thought.
I have remembered all the pre 'start your engine' steps!
I can function without mascara...LOL
Gratitudes: RV-ers are a wonderful group of human beings always willing to help and share experiences.
My sense of calm and acceptance
Hot showers at campsites
Opportunities to spend time with terrific people.
Van-Go is a happy camper...LOL
My personal Bright Spots:
1-Yesterday morning, for some reason at the campground shower, uncharacteristically, I "needed" to brush my teeth BEFORE my shower! When I went to dry my hands on my towel...it wasn't there! I had left it in the van. So glad I hadn't showered first...and realized there was no towel!
2-My daughter over-nighted some travel cards to me so I could share them with folks.
Colorado Springs-Jessica and the team at the IHOP on Lake Ave. wants to give a "Big Colorado" THANK YOU to all of our armed forces. I'd like to add mine as well!
Big Springs, Nebraska-Aja was so excited to be able to see her 3 year old niece and to stay the entire time at her birthday party for the first time! It was a toss-up whether she or the birthday girl was happier about it!
THANKS FOR SHARING
***Due to a campsite reservation mix-up, I'm spending the night at a Motel 6....woo hoo! I feel a bubble bath coming on...LOL
