It is bitter sweet...the turning of this page in our life. We loved our tiny home but for a list of reasons that would bore everyone...it comes down to the grands...we love our new adventure in the Portland area and the time to be with the grandkids. No, we will not stop our camping/traveling but 4 continuous months away is more than we want right now...maybe when they are a bit older and their friends are more important than grandparents, LOL. Coming down at what is considered the "end" of the season means we missed many of our friends...but, we are seeing a different season in Tucson. We love Tucson and will be back!
We are pooped, cleaning and making decisions about what we need to get rid of and what we want to haul back...Given the COVID environment we are traveling smart which is easy in the van. We are avoiding large crowds and events...staying in our own campsite and only one of us goes in the grocery store.
But...I totally get why people are tired of mask wearing...mask wearing in 90+ degree heat...well...it is like having a personal sauna! To avoid this feeling we don't go anywhere! Personally I am trying to keep on course with all the suggestion of the CDC because I want to someday see my Canadian friends...my Australian friends, my European friends, my South American friends...I just want to see all my friends....I want a big family BBQ...I want a Quilt Retreat!!!
Like I said the upside of being in the desert when it is so hot is seeing all the cactus blooming, lizards are running around, the birds are flocking in and my friend has a family of Havalinas in her yard!!!
I thought you'd get a kick out of this photo...traveling in a van brings the creative brain out and you figure out double duty for everything!!! LOL
I hope our paths cross down the road!
