Livin' Large in an RV

So I now know how to hook up my RV to electric and water. I know basically what you have to do to clean out the black and grey water(thank God nobody is asking me to do that yet) and I have mostly gotten the "ready for take off" routine down although I have forgotten to latch the refrigerator once or twice. I now have a new respect for flight attendants. I also have learned there is a class system in the RV world. We are low man on the totem pole....oh my. I think we get laughed at a little because our girl Dharma is old and not state-of -the art by any stretch of the imagination.We are learning to love her and she has served us well so far.I find myself chanting " I think I can,I think I can" as we slowly climb to elevations nearing 8,000 feet and poor Dharma is chugging along at 25 miles an hour.Why is everyone in such a hurry??? I don;t care.....vintage is in.
(the best moment was when one of the many Japanese tourists we have encountered asked to take a picture of Dharma. He thought we were real hippies from California in an original hippie bus!!!
In six days we have seen: The Grand canyon, Zion National Park in Utah, Bryce Canyon in Utah, Glen Canyon,Marble Canyon, Powell Lake,and so much more....tomorrow we may be headed for Sedona. There are no words to describe the beauty and the magnitude of what we have seen. I have to say we have met some very friendly and helpful people along the way both in the RV world and the tourist world. I love hearing all the stories.In my next blog I will relay the true and actual story of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as told to us by our Bryce Canyon tour guide, Cliff.

  1. Wow! I knew Dharma would pull through for you. And so now you have entered another realm in RV land...or have you entered the twilight zone?
    Hope you got to see Sedona. It is quite beautiful.Can't wait to hear about Butch and Sundance.
