A year ago this month we were no longer Rv’ers…it has been a difficult adjustment time..we miss the freedom of hitting the road with our ‘house on wheels’ following closely behind..do we miss it??….more than you know…more than words will tell…there has been many a day where we have regretted our decision but we have moved forward..finding other things to do to occupy our time..but we still miss…
The peace and quiet…the campfire…the smell of the great outdoors…we have tried to forget this feeling but it is in our system..in our blood.. …we have come to terms with our decision but we still miss it….
So after much deliberation and many conversations over the past few months, we are heading back out into the great wilderness…the land of no internet, no cell service.. no full hook-ups.. or 30 amp power…or television??…oh my!!
We have made some purchases that will ‘shock’ some readers but we are going back….yes folks..tenting is in our future…sleeping outside with just a tent to keep us safe and dry..are we too old to try something ‘old that is new again?’
We know we have said..”Never again will we sleep in a tent” especially after having the luxury of being Rv’ers…but we miss it so much that we just can’t go another camping season without the smell of campfire…bacon cooking and coffee perking….
So this weekend we are heading east…towards the town of Princeton/Hedley area…300 kilometers from home..in the hopes of sunshine and blue skies…and warm temperatures..
A little camping trip will be good for the ‘soul’…and the ‘blue funk’ we have been in..just hope I don’t forget anything…we have learned to ‘Never say never’….cause these ‘old dawgs’ are going CAMPING!!..wish us luck!!..hopefully we won’t need it!!
