In between our stay in Austin and our return to Milwaukee, we spent a couple more days at The Vineyards in Grapevine, Texas. It now officially qualifies as one our favorite campgrounds, and we haven’t even been there in the nice season when we could take advantage of all the cool stuff to do! One of the reasons we love it? The views out the RV window. I took these pics the morning we left. The stunning sunrise made it that much harder to go.
When you become a full-time RVer, or embark on some other kind of epic trip, it’s easy to let the pitfalls drag you down. Things break; people are strange; the dream job is still a job. Sometimes you’re gonna get sand in your margarita. It’s easy to get discouraged, but when those situations come up, remember:
Don’t worry about the potholes.
Just enjoy the journey.
Although we try to take things at a fairly leisurely pace, some trips require long days of driving. They can be exhausting. We break things up by sharing the driving, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, and stopping frequently to walk the bark babies and ourselves. I also work on the laptop while we’re motoring along.
When the alarm goes off well before dawn, we often groan and grumble, especially if we haven’t had our caffeine yet. 🙂 But then, once we get rolling, we’re rewarded with glorious views as the sun rises in front of us. It makes getting an early start worth it.
