We have set out on our first long trip with the Airstream. Well, March was a long trip, too, to Charlotte. But that one was a little different because we just had one destination in sight. On our present trip, we are moving from spot-to-spot as we steadily make our way west. With the plan to be gone from home about 7 weeks, it's a new situation for us. The picture below shows our rig on the day we left home. We actually had to drive only about 15 miles and then stop for lunch! The little town of Nowthen (yes, that's the name) was right on our way and we had been to wrapped up in packing up to think about making our own lunch! There were a lot of things to take care of, in addition to just packing up! Figure out what we wanted to do about our mail when we were gone - we decided to forward to our son. We also have "Informed Delivery" from the USPO, which emails us a scan of mail addressed to us. It does not include hand-written addresses. And it's free.
Then we had to stop our garbage and recycling pickup, they have a "vacation status", which is also available from our TV provider (Direct TV) and the insurance on my car which will not be used during this time. Had to hire a lawn service and activate our security system.
And, we informed the county Sheriff's office of our absence, and spoke to some trusted neighbors, as well. Not only to be observant of anything happening at our house, but to also please pick and use the lettuce in the garden!
I'm sitting now in Columbia Falls, MT. I have put together a little review of what we have been doing to get here!
We will be adding to our story, as we find new places and find ways to make our life in our tiny shiny home the most comfortable possible. One thing for sure, we are enjoying every bit of the adventure!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
