I was up early this morning and checked out one of our affiliates sites Urban Walls and came across a few inspirational Decals. The one that really caught my eye made me think about our adventures not only this year but our entire lives.
I started thinking back to our very first roadtrip as a couple. We started in Florida in a beat up old Dodge van and headed up to New Jersey where we wound up staying almost a year. From there we returned to Florida and started the next leg of our journey. We took kind of a “Deadhead” concept and tried working our way to Louisiana then Lake Eufaula with lots of mini adventures in between.
By the time we got to Atlanta Jo thought she might be pregnant again so we decided to settle in around Stone Mountain park. We lived in a tent there for awhile until we could get into a place of our own in Little Five Points which we’ll talk about later as well. Over the years we took many memorable trips together and separately too. At any rate we settled into careers until finally we lost it all in the market crash when plumbing jobs were very scarce and were forced to build a business from nothing.
Flash forward to last year when we moved into a used class A and started working on the road. We knew we would have to take our time with an older rig and after a few short trips we even started wandering a bit to get easier roads. Sometimes it gets us the best scenery off the beaten path then theres those times like our trip through Ohio where the road is barely wide enough for our rig. We’ve got lots of great tales to tell from all our travels that over the years we’ve overlooked thinking we were lost. It turns out wandering the way we did lead us to this point in our lives exactly where we wanted to be!!
