Around the time we received our tax return, Erik and I began talking about what to do this summer. Somehow Erik managed to get three weeks off during summer break, and we wanted to make the most of it. We bounced around the idea of a tropical vacation, which I knew Erik would really like, but I began to wonder if buying a camper or a tent trailer might not be a better investment. I didn't really think Erik would go for the idea (since he's a real "roughin' it" kind of guy) but to my surprise he liked the idea, so we began a two month search for the right tent trailer.
After we found the one we wanted - and after the bank transfer debacle of 2015 while trying to withdrawal our money - we purchased a tent trailer from the nicest retired couple EVER down in Oregon. Not only did they hold the trailer for us while our money transfer was pending, but they walked us through everything we would need to know AND wrote down websites we might like about tent trailers. Plus they took Avery around their beautiful yard to show her baby birds in a nest. We couldn't thank them enough for their kindness. It's home now and I'm not sure who, out of the three of us, is more excited about it. All I know is we can hardly wait for summer!
