It’s July, typically thought of as vacation month. For this farm family that is exactly what it is. The spring field work is (mostly) done. The fields have been fertilized, the barley has been harvested, corn and soybeans have been planted, hay has been cut. And we’ve taken the Durango out to the field with lunch for Daddy one last time this season.
Now…..we get to TRAVEL! That’s right, come Friday, these homebodies are hittin’ the road for four weeks! We’ll be leaving our beautiful farm in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to travel the country and beyond, going as far as Vanderhoof, British Columbia (Canada) where my sister and her family live.
We’ll take a week’s tour of the states before we get to Canada. Then we’ll spend a week in Canada, camping with my parents and sisters and their families at Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta before ending up at my sister’s house for a few days. On the “way home” we’ll swing by the west coast, and travel down as far as the Grand Canyon before heading home, taking in several amazing sights along the way.
This 36′ Fleetwood Discovery diesel pusher will be our home for the next month.
As you might imagine we are super excited! I’ll be taking LOTS of pictures, and hope to update this blog as we travel.
Life with five kids in a motor home for 4 weeks and 10,000 miles has got to be fun, right? I’m sure things will get a little crazy at times, but oh the places we’ll see and the great memories we’ll return home with!
