I would like to officially announce that we’ve drank the RV kool-aid and finally see what all the hype is about!
After 9 months of traveling the country in a Dodge mega cab, loading up a camper, hauling a travel trailer and all the steps required to set up or hit the road I was so over RVing. Thankfully we now have Harvey the RV and got to enjoy the traveling experience we were all hoping for two years ago!
No more having to worry about slides, taking out the generators from the trailer (travel trailers do not have built in generators like all the other types of RV’s) and unhooking from the truck. What a relief, what a difference and what a blessing that we had to go through all those tough times, to now have such a wonderful experience.
We began our journey with home made coffees and we had those down before we made it through Spokane, so we made a coffee stop on our way up to Kettle Falls to see Mitch’s sister Nettie! We all had plenty of room while traveling, of course Milo still prefers my lap, and Charlie loves to hang out with Papa.
Once we got to Nettie’s place, due to some overgrown trees, we were unable to drive all the way down the road, so we set up nearby, put it in park, and called it good! So much easier! When we needed A/C all we did was push a button and the generator started and Yahoo!
Beyond happy to be reunited and not a minute was wasted, stories were shared and the joy of family time was treasured.
Nettie and I hit it off from the minute we meet, she couldn’t have been any sweeter. Her little world in the woods was sprinkled with flowers, blue jays, humming birds and Bald Eagles. We were lucky enough to see all of it when we visited, but only the flowers stayed still, long enough for me to take pictures.
She gave us some bulbs of her Iris’s, and let us dig up a few of her daisy’s to take home and have for ourselves. We decided to put them all in the same area and name it Nettie’s corner.
Our first of many journeys was relaxing, enjoyable and first and for most EASY! So, if you ask me, if you ever buy an RV, go with a Class C!
Onto a couple other items before our next encounter, flowers and food!
There’s a new place out in the valley off the Sulivan Exit near Kohls called Sweeto Burrito. We had the fortune of stopping into a store and getting two free vouchers for their first opening and then we got to be their FIRST EVER customers!
We met the owner and he was very friendly, kind and hopeful for his new business.
We were beyond surprised at how delicious everything was, and they aren’t shy on the meat. If you’re in the neighborhood and are looking for something different than the regular fast food mexican restaurants around, we highly recommend them. I had the smokehouse and LOVED it.
