In Only 86 Days...! ETA

I am the mom who is moving her family into a pop-up trailer.

In only 86 days, we'll take off from our crappy life here and head north to our destination, taking a week to get there, stopping to see friends and family along the way!

We're all so very excited and can't wait to be gone! My kids keep asking me if it's time to leave yet, DH keeps saying, "Let's just go now." and I have been going through everything we own, trying to figure out what we're keeping and what we're getting rid of.

The kids and I each now have just over two weeks worth of clothes, DH needs to go through his clothes still. I've gone through my books, nick knacks and other stuff and the kids' toys- we're only keeping one tote full of toys plus their outside things- DSD's scooter and soccer goal, their balls and other miscellaneous things.

I can't wait for our journey to begin!

Yay!

Bash all you want, this is what we feel is best for our family.

We all can't wait!


ETA- I won't be answering for a bit. I have to get DSD ready for a birthday party.

I'll look through/respond to you when I get home from the party.

I'm not ignoring, just living life, outside of CM.

Sounds like fun. Do you plan to continue living in the camper and travelling?

What? Why are you moving into a pop up trailer?

We'll have a home base where we'll live most of the time, but this will also free up money to allow us to travel more frequently and see people more often.

My kids will still attend public school.

Why a pop up? I want to move into a travel trailer and travel with my kids but I don't want a pop up because of winters.

Why's your life crappy where you are? And what is your northern destination?

Because it's what we could afford now and after we get settled and DH and I get jobs, we're going to upgrade to a drivable RV.

But for the summer, we'll be in a pop-up.

OMG I just googled images. 

Never would be a good idea for me but good luck to you. It will be quite the adventure!

Come winter, we'll have a regular RV with hard walls to keep the chill out.

Also, where we're going, it doesn't snow.
