We enjoy leaving early in the morning, on our drives, for a few reasons: 1) the kids get to sleep through the drive, 2) less bathroom breaks, 3) less traffic, and 4) since we don’t have to run the a/c we get better gas mileage.
Normally, Kelly sleeps during part of the ride, but not this time…we spent the first three hours just talking about our life, church, kids, politics, money, the future, etc…and laughed more times than you could imagine. It made the three hours seem like a few minutes.
The campground is miles from stores and entertainment (Walmart), so we are spending a lot of time hanging out. We have done s’mores, the kids have rode their bikes and played on the playground for hours, met new friends, built many things with their Legos, and just enjoyed hanging out in the RV and in the tent.
Hiking was incredible. We didn’t see anyone on the trail and according to our step trackers, we hiked about 4 miles in 2 hours. It was incredible and the kids did awesome. It was our first time hiking. I think we have a new hobby 🙂
It has been great seeing our kids experience new adventures and seeing new things since we have begun this journey into RV life. The money spent has been well worth the growth and appreciation that our kids have learned.
We are excited about getting to Ohio and seeing Grandpa Harold and Grandma Shonen!! We have come close to ruining the surprise, several times, for the kids but hopefully they still are shocked when we get there. We know they will be ecstatic!
