It took us a few days to pack up the mobile part of our belongings
and to clean up the house before locking up and rolling out.
My beloved said "it shouldn't be too hard to pack up, since we're
not taking most the household items" and that was true.
However packing ten people for an overnighter, let alone the six month
stretch we're planning to be away, is a lot to tackle!
If you're ever interested to know how we actually do this gypsy stunt
I'd be glad to post particulars. Just leave your questions in a comment.
Before we hit the road, I lined the Bugletts up on the front step for a picture.
Everyone was rearing to be off!
Before we even got out of town, Bryce fell asleep.
When I looked back and saw him sleeping like this, I almost laughed until I cried!
In fact... I'm still laughing!
Wow that does not look comfortable!
We drove north via Jackson Hole Wyoming and Teton national park.
This is the picture where I made my kids squint into the sun so I could get
the Tetons behind them :-D
And this is the one where I naively handed my camera to a man who made
ME squint into the sun...
On this trip from Colorado to the panhandle of Idaho we we took 4 days to get home
and traveled a little slower.
We had two vehicles and two trailers - one which we were able to pull over
and sleep in. We determined that our total length was somewhere around 90 feet long!
Everything about this expedition was pleasant except for not being all together in
AJ wants a motor home.
I don't want that for my daily driver :-)
Sometimes the best little adventures are had in the places we pull over to stretch
our legs. The rest of these pictures are some of those "mini" adventures.
All that driving and riding and itching to get there,
and guess where we are now?!
