We thought we were going to wake up Saturday morning and pack up Happy (the Dolphin) and leave around lunch time.
Have you ever moved your entire house into a small motor home? Whew! It’s not quite like camping, where you pare down to the bare essentials that will fit in your backpack. Oh no. Since all the luxuries of a home are offered by a motor home, we had to lovingly examine everything we use in our day-to-day life and determine whether or not we really wanted/needed to have it with us for the next few months.
Candles, VitaMix blenders, tea kettles, juicers, coffee grinders, hula hoops, books, etc.
And, it turns out, you can pack A LOT into a 19 foot home on wheels. So…we brought everything but the kitchen sink!
We didn’t actually pull out of town till 11:30 at night, but we didn’t care. We were high on life as we cruised through the gorge. Greg found us a great little spot to camp on Night #1 right next door to where as a kid he spent a lot of time with his cousin in Hood River, OR. Check out the photo to see our bunk mates! Sleeping right next to a runway is quite exciting!
