Well, everyone –
This isn’t Joey, our 93 Fleetwood Bounder, talking…it’s Robin. Figured I’d sum up where we’re at in our travels, before passing the laptop over to Joey.
The beauty of rving is that you simply never know what to expect. After many goodbyes to family, painful last glimpses of our favorite scenery in this heavenly country (Glacier National Park – it just doesn’t get more beautiful), budgeting (this is gonna cost HOW MUCH IN GAS?) and checklists, we were to pull out this evening, driving very little the first night so we could stay in Marias Pass on the southern border of Glacier. Marias Pass holds a lot of meaning to us…it is the first place we stayed in 2009, when we locked the front door on our home for the very last time.
So how is it I’m typing this now, given we should be on the road? Well…two nights ago, Jim and I got this terrible flu/virus. We pride ourselves on rarely getting sick, but this “thing” hit us out of nowhere and knocked us right into our bed for a couple of days. No cough or sneeze, just fever, complete body aches, eyeballs about to pop out…then within a few days, you feel much better. So that set us back a bit.
But the plan is to leave tomorrow, October 7th, and stay in our special place on the Continental Divide. Of course we expect to freeze to death, but what a way to go!
We love rving, but Montana always feels like home (aside from family, of course!). It is hard to leave but we are anxious to see our kids, grandson, my mom and George…as we always do, we will settle in. But there will be tears, guaranteed, when the Rockies are in the rear view mirror until next year.
Joey will take over during the trip…just wanted to give a little personal touch…as the next adventure begins…..hope Joey can travel these 1600 miles without a problem, because he is drinking up our savings in gas! Wish us luck…..
