We've Done it All

The trusty Tioga got us home safely. Once again we were outside our house at a 45-degree angle. (You thought we were kidding, didn’t you?) Unpacking and cleaning at that angle is no easier than packing!

It’s great to be home. We’ve driven everywhere we wanted to drive, have seen everything we wanted to see, and have had a heck of a lot of fun. We’ve met some interesting people along the way.

And, for the first time, we’ve driven an RV. Spent 10 days in the thing, in fact. Everything this little motorhome has to offer, we’ve used. We’ve cooked, cleaned, eaten, showered and answered nature’s call. We’ve used all the hookups, leveling ramps and filled and emptied every tank…some more than once. We’ve even had the locks picked! We’ve watched TV, listened to our favorite music and driven the beast some 1800 miles across some absolutely stunning (and stunningly desolate) landscapes.

Throughout the trip, we’ve tried to put our fingers on why RVing can be so much fun. We think it IS fun, we just can’t quite figure out exactly why.

Maybe it’s having everything you need right there with you. Or, maybe it’s because it’s all the fun of camping without all of the work. (If you’re cold or want hot water, you just flip a switch!) Perhaps it’s riding up high and seeing the world like a truck driver. Maybe it has something to do with having the freedom to go and do what you want, wherever you want.

Who knows? We’re looking forward to our next chance to figure that out.

Thanks for riding along with us. We hope you enjoyed it.
If you’re interested in taking your own maiden voyage in an RV, we say “Go for it!”
