One Year on the Road And….
…still rolling! We crossed the one-year mark as full-time RV’ers on April 24, 2014 with no plans of stopping any time soon. I found myself searching and reflecting on how to adequately describe the past 365 days. Scrolling through our blog, the tag line caught my eye: ad•ven•ture: an exciting or remarkable experience. Our journey has been duly named!
Betty wheeled over 10,000 miles from Nevada to So. California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, So. Dakota, Colorado, Utah and Arizona. She wound her way along the coast, over mountainous passes (Sierra Nevadas, Rockies, Bighorns), across deserts and through mega metropolises (Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City) and sleepy little towns. She weathered heat waves, freezing temperatures, rain, gusting winds, sleet and snow but mostly enjoyed sunny, warm days.
Our travels over the past year enriched, amused, taught, challenged and inspired us. We laughed more freely….especially at our own self-created mishaps, learned more willingly….history comes alive when you walk the paths of the ancients, appreciated more deeply…life’s simple comforts and nature’s awe-inspiring beauty, and lived more fully.
Best of all, we never felt far from family and friends because we often showed up on your doorsteps and you welcomed us or you graciously met up with us on the road and you rode along with us on our blog and encouraged us. Thank you!
Here’s a to an adventurous Year 2!
