Welcome to my new life...
I have some big changes unfolding in my life. After almost 6 years with Hummingbird, I put in my notice and am currently transitioning out of my position as GM. I will be coming to Kentucky/Ohio for a quick whirlwind work/visit trip in one week and then when I return to Austin I have 7 days to pack up for an epic adventure. My (now 6 year!) roommate, Leyna, and I will be taking 8 weeks to go on a RV trip across the western half of the US and into Canada. After that, who knows!? I am currently focusing all of my energy on the complete nosedive into the unknown. Did I mention we actually bought an RV?! Its incredible!
We've spent the last 6 months researching and planning and are so excited to be nearing our departure date. We leave Monday, July 11th and expect to be back in Austin around Labor day. We've got a very rough route set and have a lot of beautiful places to visit along the way including, but not limited to, the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park (plus lots more spots in Utah), Lake Tahoe, Redwoods National Park, lots of spots in Oregon, Washington, Vancouver, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole, Denver, etc. Although we're pacing it out, we're leaving a lot of flexibility in our schedule so that we can mosey as we please, get lost and find our way again.
Over these last few months, the bulk of our time has been spent looking for our RV, along with learning all the ins and outs of RV ownership. We decided to buy over renting (for multiple reasons) and have sorted through a lot of "not quite right" motorhomes. Finally, after much searching, we found our gal in Raleigh, NC and over Memorial day weekend we flew down and drove her back. She is a 91' Fleetwood Jamboree, 18 ft long (+ a lil junk in the trunk in the form of a cargo rack) with 35,000 miles & she is in great condition inside and out. We have affectionately named her Goldilocks (Goldie for short), as she is not too big, not too small, she's just right. [Desperately hoping for a (safe) photo opportunity with 3 bears!] Did I mention we love her?!
