I have been having this on-going dream/fantasy of the “great escape!” I love our farm, but sometimes it would be great if we could just do a mini-vacation. I’m thinking of some type of 3-day to 1-week away session. The biggest concern with these thoughts is my grandson. He is only 7 and has some issues and a very traumatic life so far. We try to keep the consistency going, so trips of any kind can throw him off whack.
Well, in going through my dream, I have come up with a thought that will not leave my head – – – an RV or conversion van! Ta-da!
Ok, now let’s hear it! There must be someone out there that has done this and has opinions? I need to hear them all – pro and con, please. This thought will not leave my head. I learned long ago that when you have something that keeps tickling at the back of your brain, it’s a hint that you should follow through with that idea.
I’m thinking something like this:
But since we will be renting it, pretty sure I would get stuck with more like this:
Not bad, just not right. My grandson is a computer-aholic, ADHD wizard. We must be able to provide that mental stimulation while on the road. Thought about rigging a cattle prod under his seat and when he gets too wild, give him a little jolt. Then I realized that someone might consider that child abuse, so that and the pet carrier are out. (yes, I am just kidding – more laughter this year remember?)
So I am now open for suggestions, please! We are looking at everything from Mesa Verde to upper Michigan for our trips. Could be a 3 to 4-day extended weekend, or possibly 7-10-day week long trip. Please share with me what you find as “great family fun” in your neck-of-the-woods. I’m need help here people (sometimes it’s really tough being an old fart – hee hee)! The only stipulation I have is that it must be drivable (sorry, no flying for this gardener – love my feet on the ground too much).
