RV Life: Year One

We moved into the RV, after living with my parents for about a month. When we moved, I was still healing from double pneumonia. We lived for two weeks at Quail Creek RV Park, before moving to where we would be for the remainder of our time in Waco.

For most of the year, we were basically just living our normal daily life.

I had gone back to teaching for the year, and Allen was finishing his second to last year in public school at a local high school.

We spent the summer traveling. We wanted to get an idea of what it would be like to travel full time, before we left to explore the US.

We came away with some memories, and having a good idea of what it’d be like to travel full time.

In fall of 2019, Allen started his last year of public school, the boys started their last full year in public school. He was also teaching English online. I started staying home, and A was going to parents day out 1 day a week. I was working on figuring out work from home jobs that I could do while we travel. Not one of those panned out. I had a plan of how all of this was going to look and work. Needless to say, my plans didn’t matter one bit.

In December, Allen and I decided A would start staying home with me full time beginning in January. So not much had changed. . .until March 2020.

RV Life: The Beginnings (3)

Once we got there, we (ok, I) immediately knew this was the rig for us. “Yup, this is it. Let’s buy it.” It was even on sale.

We told them our situation, and that we wouldn’t be able to make a payment until our house sold in 2 weeks. So, they said that they would set it aside, as if it was already sold, and if for any reason our plans fell through, they’d put it back on the lot.

Our house sold, so we called the RV dealers, told them we were on our way.

We get there, and come to find out…5 people requested to see it, after having zero interest in it for months, until they locked it up for us. At this time, I was starting to get pretty sick.

After everything was squared away, Allen found a truck he liked. We left the RV at the dealership to get prepared for us to pick it up. So, we drove out, test drove the truck. Allen liked it, we bought it, and the next day picked the RV up.

All I remember from those couple of days is being in so much pain.

Everything worked out so smoothly, well most everything.
