To some, the notion of living in a home on wheels seems odd, even crazy, but it wasn’t such a hard stretch for me after having lived a military lifestyle. If you know a military family, you probably have heard of the multiple moves that they have encountered. And if you are a military family, you get it! In our case, our first move from our home state of Florida was due to the military. I remember the panic and fear that I felt during that move. We were only moving to Texas which isn’t exactly across the world, but nonetheless, it was a terrifying start for me to our transition from civilian family into a military family.
Flash forward to today…
I love living on the move! Wait?! What?! Who is this woman?! Oh, yah, still me!
That first cross country move to Texas forced me out of my comfort zone and into a new world of longing to see new things and wishing to explore new places. I still feel that momentary panic when we’re about to travel somewhere new, but over the years, I have learned to not allow that fear to paralyze me. The beauty and wonder of the new places we get to visit are worth the initial “but what if something terrible happens?” thought that runs through my head as we’re getting our rig into travel mode.
The feeling of freedom that the open road brings is exhilarating and addicting. It surpasses even the comfort that a sticks and bricks home can provide. WiIl we always live the fulltime RV lifestyle? Probably not, but for the moment, I can’t imagine living any other way at this point in my life.
