Our setup at a KOA in south central Florida.
Happy New Year! It's about time that we sent 2020 out and welcome in 2021, which I sincerely hope will bring in better things for all of us.
We first started exploring the idea of traveling across the country in an RV this past year, the last thought on any of our minds would have been a pandemic that shut down various parts of the country. All the events we planned on going to were cancelled, one by one. The reality set in that we would need to shift our focus and adjust our plans. We delayed picking up our RV for several months. Instead of planning on going to events, we decided to keep to ourselves and look for activities that allow for safer social distancing. Instead of exploring downtowns, we now go to nature parks and wildlife preserves, with the occasional visit to an art museum, if health safety protocols are in effect. Instead of going out to eat, we are cooking with the occasional splurge on take out or outdoor dining.
Hello and welcome to my first blog post! I'll be sharing our journey across the US in a Grand Design Momentum RV Travel Trailer, which I share with my fiancé James and our 20 year old kitty named Miss Puff Puff.
We just started our travel journey back in late September, but we bought our RV trailer back in March, right when states starting shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our trailer sat in storage until early fall when it was somewhat safe to travel (at least by car) again. We picked up a heavy duty truck in Texas and then picked up our trailer in North Carolina.
It took a few months to get the trailer set up to our liking - we had to move our desks, art supplies, kitchen utensils, and other possessions all the way from California to the East Coast. Now, we're just starting to enjoy life in a home that is completely mobile.
I'll be sharing more about our journey, as we not only travel through the US but also work on creating art, think deep thoughts under the stars, and work on rediscovering ourselves. Honestly, the work of rediscovering ourselves was the main purpose of going on this long journey across the states. Travel has always been one of my deepest loves, because I have the heart of an explorer, the need to discover and understand other points of view, other ways to live. And even more important to me is the idea of how to travel mindfully, with the idea of how travel can make me a better person and a better citizen of the community I'll eventually live in. Welcome to our journey!
Hello! My name is Kat (she, her, hers), and I'm here to tell you about my travels in a Grand Design Momentum 5th Wheel Travel Trailer with my better half, James and my kitty, Miss Puff Puff.
