Whattafunfeeling – riding in the RV, window down, taking a palm tree-lined exit ramp on to our next destination. I usually don’t know very much about our stops other than one or two things, like what kind of food we might find or a vague idea of what happened there in history.
Every stop is another family trip. And family trips can take time to plan. I have been beating myself up for spending hours in front of my computer lately. Then I realized if I was home planning a trip for the family, it would take me days. I would have to look at multiple websites for places to stay, places to eat, places to visit.
We plan to spend a week in St. Augustine. That would be a big trip for most families by itself. We do it a couple times each month. Isn’t that cool?
Each stop is a new experience no matter where we stay. We have seen the best, and not-so-great, areas of several cities. We’ve learned a lot about the people, the history, the food, and the values of different regions.
It’s not until John and I go out for coffee, or go to the store, that we can get a bit of a feel for the area, that we can figure out what kind of place it is. It’s been interesting to learn how Americans live so many different ways.
