The Best Day...

I've heard it said of boats...

“The two happiest days in a boat owner’s life: the day you buy the boat, and the day you sell the boat.”

That thought went through my mind the day we sold the RV.

We LOVED our 2 month RV trip ... I fully intend to go back and blog all the things, but this past month + has been a WHIRLWIND! We traveled for June all throughout Colorado ... Lizard Head Pass, Telluride, Delores River, Ouray, Silverton, Gunnison, Crested Butte, Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park. We travelled in July all through Wyoming & Idaho ... Laramie, Landers, Jackson Hole, Yellowstone, Boise, Eagle, Cascade Lake, McCall. We stayed in RV parks, on roadsides, off-road/overlanding, and with great friends.

Everywhere we went we talked of Tahoe and how different places reminded us of our fave summer spot. We started out in an RV as a way to turn a really strange, hard season of social distancing and covid into an adventure, and as summer progressed we just weren't quite ready for that adventure to end.

But... after month 3 I was DONE in the RV. We needed wifi and a house and so...

Bye, Bye RV.

We took our last trip in the RV down to see Tim's family in Morgan Hill for my sister in law's bridal shower on August 22nd. On the way down, our bike rack ripped off the bumper and our bikes scattered all over the highway and I was DONE with the RV! It was sort of the final straw. Our family had long since outgrown the tiny space and we were biding time until we could get into a house and it was time to sell! (in my mind anyway!)

RV's are a "covid winner" so we knew it would go fast! My sweet husband listed it for a high price on FB Marketplace, just to see what would happen.

In some seriously sweet timing, we took a deposit within a day or so of listing it and the man came and paid us cash the day we were ready to head back to Tahoe.

You guys. Staying in a hotel after 3 months in the camper was HEAVEN!!! And, the best day? Selling the camper! We loved our summer trip and will probably do another RV trip in the future, just with a bigger rig.

And... how did we get all our things back to Tahoe? Well, that was A DEAL. And, maybe not worth hashing out all the details and drama, but safe to say that I cared more about getting the camper gone, than I did the logistics of unloading it and transporting our things. Thankfully, I have a very patient husband and a (soon to be) brother in law with a trailer and all of that is now behind us!

Onto the next adventure!!
