There is also the possibility that I will instead get a larger Class C motorhome and put a rack on the back to carry a motor scooter or electric bike. That would give me the ability to run around to do errands or go visit nearby attractions without having to break camp, and without the cost of insuring a tow vehicle.
This year, I’m just not in the Halloween spirit, spooky or otherwise. All I can think about is that it’s only been 16 days since I woke up and heard Idgie making noises that told me she was in severe pain, and I knew as I left with her for the emergency vet at 5:30 am that she wouldn’t be coming home with me.
Suffice to say, the first leg of my full time RV life was a journey of epic proportions, both in terms of time and distance, and of mental/emotional ground covered. Here are the highlights of the lead-up stage, before Idgie and I really got on the road. More to follow in subsequent posts.

I can’t paint or wallpaper yet without worrying about things being affected by the cold, so I started with a task that didn’t depend on it being nice and warm, just tolerable. I began installing the kitchen backsplash.
