59 Days & Counting
We are counting down the days until we leave Tennessee to visit family in Michigan and then finally hit the open road west. February was dreary, cold, and wet. We feel anxious to start this journey, sad to be leaving family, and relieved that we got the van early with a few months to fix her up. Currently, she is sitting in the backyard- wooden block behind back left tire to keep her from rollin'. She still looks pretty, even without her makeup on. Oh, and here's a pic from her first tow.
We got Olin's room started and even found padding for her bed, which is a huge deal! The van is now jazzed up with the following: New battery, house batt, alternator, light switch and under-the-hood wiring to and from the alternator. Day by day, week by week, she is coming along. We can't wait to take her on a test trip and really warm that engine up!
We have been trying to save as much money as possible outside of van renovations, so we haven't been getting on the trails as much as we'd hope this last month. We did have some Michigan friends come in to visit for a day last week, so we took them on a hike up to Roan Mountain and downtown to Yee-Haw Brewery.
In roughly 59 days, we will be hitting the road and living in the van full-time. But from there, the rest is unknown! All we do know is that we want to be out west, somewhere it snows a lot. We are so excited to start this trip and actually pretty scared as we ponder the coming days about traveling into the unknown, again. Must mean we are doing something right, yeah?
