We’re really doing it.

September 14, 2011

Ok, first of all, I must explain the blog title. When we got our travel trailer this spring, we were joking around about what to name her. Then, I extended the slide for the first time and BING – she’s the TARDIS! Bigger on the inside! If you’re not familiar with the BBC show Doctor Who this may be a bit confusing, but to make a long story short the Doctor travels through time and space in a time machine that looks like a phone box, but when you open the doors it’s bigger on the inside. Much, much bigger. If you’ve never watched Doctor Who before, I highly recommend it.http://doctorwho.bbcamerica.com/

So yes, we are now the owners of a travel trailer. But I wouldn’t be creating a blog simply about a recreational vehicle if there weren’t more to it than weekend trips or summer vacations. We are moving all of our worldly possessions that won’t fit in the TARDIS into a storage unit, and living in her full time. We’re not planning on leaving the local area right now, my husband will continue to work where he currently works, but we’ll be alternating between state parks and COE campgrounds on Clark’s Hill Lake (Strom Thurmond lake to South Carolinians).
Right now, I am still sitting in a rented house in suburbia, but the excitement really hit me this past weekend when we were checking out the parks that we have since reserved for our first month of freedom. The landlord has been notified of our upcoming departure, as have the utilities (goodbye $400 power bill!) and other services. It’s getting real now, and I probably should be packing instead of blogging, lol. Our daughter Audrey (3) is excited, she was disappointed that the trips to the campgrounds over the weekend weren’t actual camping trips.
Anyway, that’s it so far–we’re probably going to be busy preparing, so I may not have another post for a bit.
Here’s a picture from our first weekend trip this summer.
