Week two was a busy one. It may look like not much is done but I can assure you so many hours have been put into getting this beast already. Yes, we have TONS more to do but we’re getting there.

This week we jacked up the airstream in order to be able to get under it and remove the fresh water tank. We wanted to make sure it was in good shape and decide if we were going to keep it or need a new one.

Airstream Renovation: Week 1

I told Jonathan that I saw that some people demoed their Airstream in 2 days! If they can do it in 2 days, so can I. But the thing is, I have never demoed an Airstream before, so...my 2 days turned into 7. Turns out, there’s a heck of a lot of rivets in an Airstream. And when thing one is connected to thing two which can’t be removed until you loosen thing 3 and then kick thing 4, it takes a lot longer than you thought. Then your all like, “why won’t this tambour door come out?” and then the credenza table nearly falls on your face when you remove the last screw. That’s was what my first week was like trying to demo the darn thing.

Well, its been a few days that I’ve been trying to process something that happened to me. You’ve heard the saying, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Well, I’m hear to tell you that’s just stupid. I’m guessing that we can all relive exact words spoken to us that just broke our souls. I know I can. I can remember the smells, the sounds, how I felt and the exact words that were spoken to me that crushed my spirit. I’m going to try to explain what happened the other day without using the language that’s currently running through my mind.

Simplifying 2.0

It was about this time 2 years ago that we wrote about our plans to travel full-time. We spent lots of time researching and talking to other full-time families before we settled on buying our 5th wheel. Everyone we talked to told us to ‘buy your last rig first’ or ‘you’ll never regret going with a big rig’. Well, we found out that what works for most people isn’t necessarily what works for us. While we have loved this rig, it has become too comfortable for us. It's just like our house. We find our selves in different rooms often and staying inside way too much. That is not what we had in mind when we decided to travel full-time.
