Karen and I received a few RV related gifts from our wonderful family today for Christmas. It appears they are embracing the idea we are planning to go fulltime. A big part of our planning includes finding a great spot to come back to here in Missouri to visit family for longer stays. Karen and I have been talking about family a lot lately. She suggested not only could we stay nearby for longer periods but some family might even want to come along for a few shorter trips. Guess we need to make sure the sofa bed will be comfortable in whatever rig we get.
Karen got a 9″ folding step stool she was needing for around the house. This will come in handy reaching shelves in an RV as well.
My daughter’s in-laws, who are avid RV travelers, gave me this 15′ Valerra Dominator black tank hose. It collapses and has solid connectors. I’m sure they did all the research and I know they use the same setup on their RV.
Also received three books to read. One was a large book titled Drives of a Lifetime by National Geographic. The book highlights amazing roads we will be able to travel down while stopping at amazing places. Karen got a book titled RV Traveling Tales by Jamie Hall and Alice Zyetz. It’s all about women’s journeys on the open road. Another book I received as a gift is titled Travels with Charley – in Search of America by John Steinbeck. I can tell this is going to be a good read.
We don’t have a rig yet and are not planning to get one anytime soon. However, the urge to purchase one sure is eating at me. I can see the value of making the purchase a year or two before going fulltime.
It was really nice getting with the family for a meal, board games and sharing time together. Hope you all had a great holiday as well.
