Giving Thanks, Plus “Moon of Honey in the Trailer!”
Thanksgiving offers the opportunity to reflect on life, liberty, and the pursuit of full hookup campgrounds. As we take a fond gaze in the proverbial rearview mirror, we see another action-packed year of whimsical RV antics, mind-expanding personal growth, and charming Walmart parking lots.
For the most part, life with our RV has been a joy. (Except for the bent axle, which was not a particularly joyous situation for anyone involved — except Visa.)
RV camping has brought us closer together as a couple — literally. And blogging has helped to keep the spirit alive, as we broadcast our triumphs and travails around the globe.
I’m thankful for the many kind emails and comments we’ve received this past year.
Recently, we even got an email from an RV honeymooning couple in BRAZIL! Yes, believe it or not, we have kindred spirits in Brazil who also got hitched shortly after getting hitched.
“I love travel trailers, campinground (SIC)….and I have a travel trailer too, but I´m from Brazil and here is not popular have a RV. I did my honeymoon on a travel trailer too and we traveled about 3000km it was very cool. I think that I was the first to make this adventure in my country. Sorry but my English is a little poor. ”
Well done, my Brazilian friend. No need to apologize for your English, as it is far superior to my Portuguese. You can check out Cássio’s site (Lua de Mel do Trailer or “Moon of Honey in the Trailer”) and photos here: MOON OF HONEY IN THE TRAILER!
Cássio and his wife are clearly an adventurous couple, especially since RV ownership is unusual in Brazil. His comments make me thankful that RV travel is so popular in our own vast and wonderful country. We are fortunate that the industry has grown and matured over several decades, so that RV-ing is supported coast-to-coast!
I’m thankful for our continued health and safety while traveling. Any time you venture onto highways, you are rolling the dice. So far we’ve enjoyed over 30,000 miles of safe travel. (That sound you hear is me knocking on wood.)
I’m thankful for all of our kind friends at Affinity Group, Airstream, and the RVIA (you know who you are!) who have encouraged us to keep on honeymooning.
I’m thankful that fuel prices are headed in a downward direction, so we can fill SEEMORE’s belly without scorching our credit cards.
And speaking of fuel, I’m thankful for YOU, our readers (and watchers). Our Long Long Honeymoon is fueled primarily by positive feedback, and you’ve put plenty of the good stuff in our tank this year.
Stay tuned, folks – the best is yet to come!
