Oh wait. My bad…
That thin blue line is simply the trail that we nerds have blazed over the past four weeks.
That’s a’lotta gas!
… and plenty of diesel fuel as well….
So, here’s a quick recap!
Wilmington = Family Fun
Maggie Valley, NC = Smoky Mountain Spectacular
Lexington, KY = Stopover for sleep (and water aerobics)
Volo, IL –
- Sold a car! (Thanks again, Fred!)
- Pimped out the house.
- Ate squirrel meat… not really. (Or did we???)
West Salem, WI – Single night sleepover… turned into three
Sioux Falls, SD = We have officially forsaken Illinois residency, folks! Yes, ma’am (sir), we are now moccasin-wearing, gun-sling’n, bad guys! (okay, not really, we’re still slipper-wearing, computer slingers, but we are residents of South Dakota now! By the way, shout out to Josiah’s Café in downtown Sioux Falls. Finally a good cup of coffee!!
Omaha, NE = Yay! A Jumping pillow! It’s da bomb. Many KOA’s have them and they’re soooo fun! Eeep!
Springfield, IL = M’boi! (Wait! I thought th’boi was in Wilmington, NC…..) Good memory! This is M’boi, #2. It’s family weekend at Milliken University! Woot!
During the past week, I (me, Honey-Jayne) have learned how to set the trailer into the 5th-wheel hitch (like a pro! BAM!), make wide-right turns, borrow books on tape from Cracker-Barrel (seriously, you can do that!), and creatively fashion a Dirt Devil vacuum bag to fit my hard-to find central vac system.
And Benj? Well, I should really let him share what has brought such a smile to his face of late. However, I will tell you that over the past few weeks, he’s been talking up the benefits of adding a see-through attachment the stinky slinky to keep an eye on the mighty brown river…. And sometimes, my friends, Christmas can come early.
