The adventure has begun and so has the education. We have learned the value of level campsites after sleeping in a slanted driveway, added more padding to our bunk after a couple of sore mornings, have come to appreciate state highways over the Interstates, and that RV travel is is more than 20% slower than by car. Already we have lost a gas cap and a wheel cover (recovered) , and drove to a campground that was full (call ahead). On our second day we drove narrow mountain winding roads and a potted steep dirt driveway, no RV has any business trying to navigate, on a mission to visit family. On our forth day we drove 300 miles in a high wind advisory, sometimes slowing to 40 miles per hour (partially in the neighboring lane).
The cats are slowly adjusting after a couple of days of sheer terror and unique hiding places. Neither like the motion part and now spend the entire time under the covers in the bunk. At camp they are curious about the outdoors and as snugglely as ever. Kimchi was out on a leash briefly, but only wanted to go under the RV. Another week and less time in motion will do them good. That goes for the humans too.
We made it to Florida after 4 days, just as a snow storm is about to hit home in Baltimore. We now are going to slow down and linger with a few days at the beach ahead – life is good.
