Planning for the Weekend

We work for weekends.  It keeps us going, knowing we can "Get Outta Dodge", change the scenery and feel like we're on vacation.  In other words, we can relax.

I'm going to stop by a campground on the way home from work tomorrow and make a reservation for Saturday night.  Friday, instead of driving my car to work, I'll drive our toad, the Element and stop by the storage lot where we keep the Journey, hook up and drive it home.  I know Marti will be late, she usually has the greatest problematic issues happen Friday afternoons.


Fortunately, I have the DirecTV satellite dish, so I'll kick back and watch the History Channel until Marti gets home (She's not too fond of History, remember?).  We'll probably pick something up to eat and head on down the road.  Because it'll be late, we'll set out sights on doing a little "Blacktop Camping" at the on the way Flying J.


 Saturday morning we'll continue on down to the campground and set up once we get there.


We have plans for Saturday night, we're going to meet our fellow RV-Dreamers, Mike and Terri Young.


  We met at last April's RV-Dreams rally and hit it off.  Since then, we've had dinner together and have been encouraging each other as we both prepare to sell our houses and go full time.  It'll be another fun dinner as we get to hang out and talk "RV".

After dinner, we'll head back to the campground and probably stay up too late, but that's okay, we'll sleep in on Sunday.  I'll see if I can get a late checkout so we don't have to rush to leave and get home.  It'll give us a little time to kick back, relax, read and maybe even grill a meal.

Plus, I have a medical appointment on Monday, so I won't have to rush off to work, I can take the Journey back to the storage lot Monday afternoon.  If I'm lucky, I might have good enough weather to give it a good wash job.  I like to keep our investment well maintained and clean!  Fortunately, I can wash the Journey at our house.


I know our life sounds boring (and sometimes it is) but these little weekends certainly recharge our batteries and give back "R SANITY".  ;c)  Just think how much more sane we'll be (HA!) when we go full time...

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
