Day 7: Making It Last

Day 7: Making It Last

End of vacation depression is real! When you initially arrive to the chosen spot after all of the planning, dreaming and anticipation, everything is so new and exciting and it always seems as if you have so much time ahead of you. Midway through, you get the sinking feeling that the end game is near, but there’s still so much to do that it doesn’t detract too much from the experience. Then, the bottom falls out when it is officially over. How will I live without these views, this weather and endless food, drink and celebration? Top it off with an over-booked wicked red-eye flight through LAX and you (if you’re anything like me) might just wonder if it was all worth it.

Once the horror of sleep deprivation subsides though, you’ll likely realize that it was totally worth it, right? What if the coveted vacation-mode did not have to end? Well, in the true spirit of the Nowhere To Be Project, I’ve decided it doesn’t have to end and it won’t end. In honor of our anniversary this week and my husband’s birthday, we bought a recreational vehicle that will become our home-away-from-home on wheels. My brother sells RVs, so it was pretty much sight unseen as we trust his opinion on what will work best for us. Also, we had a RV when our kids were small and loved it. We purchased a 2018 Winnebago Itasca Navion 24D. We pick it up in a couple of weeks in Florida. We have a get-to-know-you-RV adventure planned during a quick birthday trip for our son at Fort Wilderness at Walt Disney World. Right now, we’re trying to come up with names for our new ride. Please feel free to chime in through the comments section. We’d love to hear your ideas. For now then, the planning, dreaming and anticipation continues…

  1. I did the same thing. We’re new the the View, and I wanted to let others know the stuff we learned. I chronicled our first big trip in 6 blog posts, “The View with a View.” http://cabumpkins.blogspot.com/ Parts 1 & 6 are especially informative for folks who are just starting out. You have an advantage having previous RV experience. We were tenters before.
