The Class C Experience

I would like to officially announce that we’ve drank the RV kool-aid and finally see what all the hype is about!

What kind of kool-aid you talkin’ bout ma?

 

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!

Lets go already kids!

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.

How sweet it is to have Pops as happy about it as we are!

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.

Best cup holders and cubby spots ever!

Charlie had the hardest time adjusting to the new RV, but towards the end he started to relax and enjoy the ride.

Hey Dad, are we there yet?

I think you need to make a window I can look out of when we travel

I think you need to make a window I can look out of when we travel, I want to see nature too!

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!

The Family hanging out with Nettie

Beyond happy to be reunited and not a minute was wasted, stories were shared and the joy of family time was treasured.

Mitch brought his sis a beautiful hydrangea, and made her day.

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.

Giving big kisses, making up for lost time and making the memories last till the next time we meet.

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!

 

FLOWERS:

I wasn't going to buy any flowers this year....but then I stopped into a flower shop

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.

Everyone trying to set up for their first day on the job

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.

See the photo of Mitch and I as their very first customers, just click here .

    Glad to see you guys found the perfect Class C. That thing is really in nice shape, looks brand new in your pics. Kathy says ” I knew they would be back”. Ha ha, once RVing is in your blood you cant ignore it. See you on the road! Alan and Kathy from Minnesota.

    • You guys called it for sure then! Guess we just needed a little time before getting back on the horse. We couldn’t be more happy with the shape our RV is in, it’s more than we could’ve asked for 🙂 Hopefully we’ll meet up with you guys along our future travels. Take care! Mitch and Shawna
