Day One: Illinois, Asthma Attack and Shower in Wal-Mart Parking Lot
Our first day on the road was a success! No stops, we drove straight through to get some miles under our belt. We are now in Lincoln, Illinois. We hit the Illinois border around 8:00pm and stopped for our picture alongside highway 80. We are far back, because this isn’t one of Scott’s favorite traditions. He gets so nervous about having the kids run alongside the highway .. I’m not sure why?!!
We ‘camped’ overnight at our favorite location .. a Wal-Mart parking lot. Why not? It is one of our favorite things about RV vacationing. We drive as late as we can (OK, as late as SCOTT can), we simply pull in the lot, extend the slide-out, brush our teeth and hit the bed.
It got so cold in the RV last night Annelies started having an asthma attack. It was easily cured with turning the heat on, and a shot of inhaler. The temperature this morning is a sunny 48 degrees.
Scott is in Wal-Mart shopping, his morning routine. Paradis and I just showered .. yes, in the Wal-Mart parking lot! I love this life and I’m so happy to be back on the road.
Thanks for all the emails and comments everyone. I so enjoy writing this blog to document our family’s adventures. Every day I feel as though all of you are right alongside us.
