Passenger View

Taking control of my life landed me in the passenger seat of a RV on an amazing road trip. It was so fun in many ways, I have been the driver for the last 20 years on all family road trips, I love driving but it makes it hard to enjoy the scenery. I’m fascinated driving places I’ve never been and looking at the houses, stores, yards, I love to wonder about the people who live there. I soaked up every mile of being in the passenger seat. Thats not to say I didn’t enjoy learning how to drive the RV down the freeway at 75 miles per hour in the dark lol, I enjoyed it all.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip over Christmas break when neither of us had our kids. He found an amazing deal on a RV that needed to get from Las Vegas to Phoenix the same week we were traveling and so we took it!

I’ve never actually traveled in a RV before, I’ve spent the night camping in a camper in my grandparents back yard so this whole experience was new. The bed was less then comfortable, the shower was about 2 feet too small for my companion to fit in and it had a tendency to turn off the heat around 4:30 every morning until we could find which fuse needed to be pulled and reinserted. Let me tell you when it’s 10 degrees outside the RV doesn’t hold on to any warmth for long.

And I loved it. Watching the scenery change from Vegas to the mountains to the grandeur of Zion National Park, and then beyond it to Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon and finally Phoenix was so beautiful. I was quiet and contemplative watching the journey and I hope that didn’t make me a boring travel buddy. I took over 600 photos on my iPhone lol and I was told I should probably be more discriminating with my pictures but I wanted to capture every tiny detail of the beauty.

I definitely love where this road is taking me.
