Our Journey Home to Minnesota
In Arizona, there were so many benefits of an extended stay. Especially all the hiking and exploring, weather that was much warmer than the rest of the country, and RV park low monthly rates. We got to catch up on business stuff and career planning you can’t do when you’re on the road and the internet can be sketchy.
And I can’t wait! We were ready to go when we left Arizona. Besides our readiness for spring, we’re ready for new adventures every day and exploring new parts of the country. We’re ready to do more moving around and less settling down. We also have a little of the “enjoy the RV life while you can” urgency to take advantage of every moment. Our next year of RV’ing is uncertain as we look for on-going work so that’s in the back of our minds on the last leg of this trip.
But while I’m so excited for the next five weeks, I’m also so excited to be heading home to Minnesota. It’s an interesting contrast but feels completely balanced now. I can’t wait to get there and introduce Parker to the rest of the family. To have wonderful family time and see how much our nephew has grown. For the blanket of so many close friends close by again. We’ve had an awesome year on the road together seeing and learning so much, and I can’t wait for us to share our stories.
Plus, you know it’s time to head home when you’ve worn a hole in your favorite pair of hiking shorts and your boot sole is flapping!
So, here’s to fully appreciating the gift of exploring the country together the next five weeks and then to the appreciation for being home. Hope you’ll follow along on our journey home.
