Pic of the Week

Sunday, March 22, 2009


We've been reading a lot of forums of RVers, especially those traveling with kids. One thing that seems universally agreed upon is that the Fourth of July fireworks at Mount Rushmore are unmatched and definitely worth seeing. There's apparently a huge all-day celebration too. It sounds like a lot of fun. That, combined with the fact that becoming South Dakota residents is looking increasingly promising, is making us want to do this earlier start to our trip:

Start off heading to visit our good friends in Kansas City, then head north to Sioux Falls to get mail forwarding & residency things set up, then head over to Mount Rushmore for the 4th of July. Then we'd have about two weeks to get down to Colorado Springs to meet my family. It looks like a nice route, doesn't it? And it's heavier driving, but very doable IF we can get out of here by early-mid June. What are the odds of that?

So we've been thinking about what's next. We're calling the realtor tomorrow morning to list the house-hopefully this will sell quickly but we all know how the housing market is. We also need to help clear out some more space in my mom's basement so we can store some things there, and if need be we'll buy an outdoor shed to store the overflow. We also need to sell our van so we can buy a truck so we can bring our camper home. We need to camp in it several times (as many as possible) so we can work out the kinks and feel totally comfortable with operating everything before we leave. We need to stock the RV, which involves purchasing many items and learning to use them. We need to pack & store everything we're not taking. We need to be fully moved out of our house before we leave so we don't have to come back if it isn't sold before we go.

No problem, right? Surely we could do that in a little over two months. :)
