“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!” ― Dr. Seuss
Today we are headed to Las Vegas to pick up the travel van! For the past three weeks, I’ve been studying up, browsing through Amazon, and resisting the urge to buy All. The. Things.
It’s a slippery slope. Every time I turn around, someone suggests something I might need or want to get for “the van.” I have joined several different Facebook owners groups, and have been reading the advice of others who have gone before. But we’re going to take it slowly, and figure out what we need as we move forward.
And just for the record, I’m a little bit nervous. As a complete RV newbie, the learning curve will be steep. But the dealer has promised to put us through a couple of days of training, and they are paying for us to spend tonight in a nice RV park, so come this evening, we’ll be pushing all the buttons and trying to figure out what’s what!
Did you know that with the help of a space bag, you can suck the air out and pack 2 feather pillows in a carry-on bag? I might just know that from experience…Stay Tuned!
Erm….Hi Guys! Remember me? It’s Lynn from an Encore Voyage. You remember me, that retired teacher chick with the architect hubby who decided to start all over again? Well, I could use your help here cuz:
I Can’t Breathe!
We actually did it! On Tuesday, we put the down payment on a 2019 Pleasure-Way Plateau FL. And I’m about to have a heart attack! First, because the dang thing is just a bit pricey! Second, because we are finally spending some of our retirement money! I’ve heard it’s a big step to go from accumulation to distribution! For sure! I was really freaking out until we called our financial adviser and she said, “You guys are fine. You need to enjoy your retirement! This is what you worked a lifetime for!” This is where you come in. Comment now…things like, “It’ll be OK, Lynn.” and “No worries, you’ve got this!” Yeah, thanks for that!
So we’ve taken the plunge, and now the Voyage truly begins! We have so much to learn and I’m just a little bit scared. We are total RV newbies and even though I always try to study up about every. little. thing, I’m pretty sure this will be a steep learning curve.
Oh yeah, one more thing. He needs a name, dontcha think? “Halen” has already been taken (think about it…), but I’m open to suggestions for other great “Van” names!
And thanks again for not completely abandoning us when we disappeared for awhile. The Voyage just got way more real! And we invite you to come along on the journey!
