Well, this RV trip was different, and not what I expected. A friend just bought a small travel trailer and needed some practice maneuvering it. We decided a nearby camping trip with a third friend would be in order. They could go for a few days, but I could fit in only a 24-hour period.
It was a busy, exhausting week for me. I had little time to pack or prepared the RV. But it’s only a day and I was camping with friends, so that wouldn’t matter. It just didn’t seem to offer much relaxation – pack the RV, drive 20 miles, set up – and be there. Next morning pack up and go home. Few expectations, no disappointments.
The surprise for me – how one evening setting by the Rio Grande watching the river and the birds, even a deer, and good conversation with friends, could refresh my attitude. The early morning the next day just added to the healing.
Maybe it means that I’m comfortable enough with the RV now that even a one-day camping trip is worthwhile. Something for me to remember.
