FIVE BENEFITS OF ESCAPING IN OUR RV

 

My family suffers from one of society’s most common and prevalent afflictions: too much. Too much clutter, too much to do, too much general busy-ness. My husband and I are both self-employed Type-A personalities and there are many weeks when we work upwards of 50 to 60 hours. Our two daughters are both in competitive cheerleading that gobbles up eight hours each a week of their “spare” time. Add to the mix all the regular mundane chores like homework, laundry, and grocery shopping – and we have an active social life. 

While there’s no doubt it’s a good life, every once in a while it can get, well, overwhelming. When it all gets too much for me to handle, I metaphorically throw out my hand and slam it hard on our escape hatch.

 

 

Our family’s “escape hatch” sits on six wheels and is 40 feet long. From the outside it looks like your typical motorhome, but don’t be deceived; it’s so much more than that. Our RV has become our shelter from the storm and our first go-to when we need a family reset. “But it’s just an RV,” some may scoff. Not so, I’d counter. It’s a family containment unit and when the outside world has us paying more attention to our screens than to each other, it’s time to hop inside for status updates that are spoken instead of texted.

THE NORTHWESTERN-MOST POINT OF THE CONTIGUOUS USA

 

It’s five o’clock on a Friday before a long four day weekend and I’m clocking out.  “Have a great road trip, Monica!” my colleagues tell me as I happily walk towards the front door with a spring in my step and a grin on my face. They have witnessed countless times my cocoon to butterfly-like transformation when I turn from a nine-to-five workaholic into a weekend RVing warrior.

This weekend, I’m packing up the family and escaping my nine-to-five with a well-deserved trip with our travel trailer. We’re heading to the northwestern-most point of the contiguous USA. Our first stop on the way is the quaint Victorian town of Port Townsend with a perfect RV site at the Point Hudson Marina & RV Park.

TAKE A SNEAK PEAK

The Sisters on the Fly will be thrilling the attendees at the Country Living Fair again this year with their beautiful trailers and tales of the road. The Fair takes place at Stone Mountain Park in Georgia the weekend of October 24-26.  The sisters will also be the featured speakers at the Main Stage Saturday afternoon.

If you can’t make it to the fair, take a sneak peak at some of the re-vamped vintage campers the Sisters have created.

This clever trailer belongs to Sister on the Fly #3825, Debbie Smoot. It’s a 1964 Gypsy. Now that’s a ‘canned ham’!
