Yesterday we launched! The last week has been intense and exhausting as we finalized downsizing for now, moved what we’re keeping to our 10′ x 10′ climate-controlled storage, loaded the truck and trailer, and cleaned the rental home in order to pass along the keys to our wonderful landlord.
We underestimated the time for the above, thus left Denver at 1pm MDST with our truck, Bessie, and trailer, Tranquility. Last month we made campground reservations for the first few days, knowing that we wanted to stay put for several days to catch our breath.
Adrenaline kept us going the 400 miles/9 hour drive to our campsite. It was difficult to set up camp in the dark, yet we did so in record time of 30 minutes! The inside of the trailer was quite the scene because we loaded the last of the clothes, toiletries, extra bedding, books, etc in record time a.k.a. “not a tidy situation.”
Just after midnight we seemed to fall into bed as solid as weights! We fell asleep to the pitter-patter of rain with windows open for a breeze.
We slept in this morning. Enjoyed our French press coffee and oatmeal. Walked the campground. Read and napped. And… left the campground to seek out cell service in a small Kansas town in order to contact our children. We are taking the opportunity to share this post and also make posts to Facebook and Instagram.
We will create posts as we travel based on cell service or free Wi-Fi at public libraries, coffee shops, or restaurants that offer it. Our Hotspot service was used too much this month, so we’ll be “throttled” to a slower speed for our Wi-Fi portion of the plan.
Our best to you!
Traveling full-time at “Life at the Speed of Sanity”!
