Back in Olden Days

Back in the olden days (as described by the girls), we set out on a little weekend family trip in our new to us 11-year-old travel trailer. The year was 2011. (Like we said, the “Olden Days”)
Fast forward four years later, we chose to wear out our hiking shoes instead of reluctantly wearing in our winter boots.
Now seven years after that winter trip; the world is our neighborhood, and our home stays warm all year long as we chase the weather and visit every Main Street we can.
As food allergy parents, we fight to keep our girls safe, alive, and thriving while giving them the adventure of a lifetime.
There is no end in sight, as we still have over a dozen states to visit!

The sky was unreal during this rain! ...

Time to swap out tank tops for sweatshirts! I don’t know how we accumulate so many clothes so when we change clothes over for the season we also purge what we don’t wear! How do you keep your closets organized? ...

Settle down? What does that even mean. We are going into our 7th year on the road and people have asked if we ever plan to stop traveling and settle down. The thing is we are settled. We have our home. We love our home. It just parks in different spots of the country!

Even though it’s been 7 years I feel like there is still so much to see! The struggle is we are never in a place long enough to get bored. Because of that there is still so much yet to live and see!

Where would you call home?

Any guesses how much this costs? This has been one of my favorite RVs for a few years! It’s the DRV Fullhouse toy hauler! The counter space is unreal! It has tons of storage inside and out!! ...

Our AC fan broke in the middle of the night and it sounded like a plane crashing into the RV 😱 Thankfully Jerome was able get the part quickly and repair it! He also added a Soft Start so that it requires less power when it kicks on if we are on 30 amp or using the generator! ...

It’s so important for us to eat meals together. With the girls getting bigger we needed a bigger space! The benches are attached directly to the wall with no backs or bottoms to save on weight! We also added light weight things such as life jackets and games so that we didn’t add too much weight to the slide.

Do you eat as a family?

Can you spot where we added that new rough cut lumber into the RV?

Anyone else obsessed with the night sky like us! I could literally stare at it all night! We can’t wait to get back out west to those big night skies! ...

Do you trust your spouse’s vision?
I’ve got to admit; with this guy, sometimes his ideas are off the wall crazy and I cringed when I saw this wood potentially ending up in our rv.

Then once the panels came off the slide outs, it started to get real.

Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain!

Did you know that you can see the first sunrise from Cadillac Mountain? It is also the highest point on the eastern seaboard. We weren't sure if we were going to make the drive up for the sunrise because you have to have a reservation. You can also hike up and that does not require any tickets, you just will probably need to start around 3:30 am. After some research, I learned that 2 days before the release tickets at 10 am. I figured I would try it out.

The first morning I tried and reservations were sold out before 10:01 am. The second morning I didn't have service because we were hiking so I missed that one. I had one more shot, otherwise, we were contemplating hiking up. We all were logged in on our phones waiting to grab a reservation and at 10 am Jerome snagged one! 2 days later at 4:30 am we were driving up Cadillac Mountain. There were a lot of low-laying clouds so we assumed we weren't going to see much. However, the clouds over the town and the mountains were so beautiful! While we were waiting the girls picked blueberries. Then all of a sudden a hot pink sliver started poking out above the clouds. We were able to see it after all!

It was defintely worth the early morning drive! Have you been up to Cadillac Mountain?
