Phase or Folly – The Beginning

PART ONE: The Dream

Keeping a journal has been an on-and-off thing ever since I can remember but blogging has fascinated me for quite some time.  So starting a blog sounded like a great way to segue into the newest chapter in the life and adventures misadventures of Mick and Patti; the world of RV travel.  You know, it’s where you gather up the pets, get in the driver’s seat of your home-on-wheels and travel free as a bird, visiting fun and exciting places, where magnificent scenery surrounds you and the skyline of a great city lies in the distance.  It’s where you’ll meet the friendliest people who share the same sense of independence and adventure as you do.

Imagine the freedom of starting off in a direction with no demands on when you arrive wherever it is you want to go and choose to stay as long as you wish before moving on.  The opportunities for discovery are endless as you take a detour from the main highway to venture into and explore a place you’ve never visited or find something you never knew existed.

The thought of this type of travel is exhilarating; no ties, no deadlines – just total freedom!

I can close my eyes and imagine the delicious smell of bacon, eggs and toast, and the aroma of fresh brewed coffee filling the crisp morning air.  After a day on the road, you look forward to stopping for the night, building a campfire and putting a couple of steaks on the grill. The smell makes your mouth water and your stomach beg for dinner.

Afterward, it’s time to sit together by the fire, sip a glass of wine or drink a cold beer, toast s’mores and reflect on the beauty of the day while gazing at the stars.  PART ONE SUMMARY:  Travel Nirvana!
