So you’ll have to read to end of this for the humiliation. No peeking! I mean, everyone loves to hear someone humiliate themselves, right?
So we drove for a few days, and it was good. It was calm, mostly. It was nice to drive with my thoughts and make decisions on the future.
Here are my thoughts:
My new plan for the “big trip” is not going to be to show my children the country this coming year. My new plan is going to be to travel around and be with my kids, to relax and enjoy each other, and if we see some of the country, that’s a bonus.
I was able to see another friend, which was great. That’s another thought; I am going to need a lot of adult interaction on this trip and will hopefully see as many people as possible.
We had issues with schooling, so I’ve come up with (and am still coming up with) some ways to juggle that. The biggest ones were Caleb will have to do some tutoring while I drive, and I will have to stop and school them more than I was anticipating.
Did I mention more maintenance time and rest?
So, do I still want to travel the country with my family? Definitely. Was this a disaster? Well except for what I’m about to tell you, I feel like it was a success. Other than the horrible blow up on Easter (and a lot of bickering), we got along ok. I feel like it was a pressure cooker where I was able to work through a lot of stuff in a small amount of time.
So we drove home and I backed the RV into my house.
Yes, I damaged both the house and the RV.
