Instead of going out with a BANG, we are winding down with a comforting sizzle.
When you are on a course of change, and deep in your heart you know it is the right direction , it can still be difficult and sometimes painful.
We made the decision that our time of living on the road must end. And, though we love our Airstream, our time with her must also end. A tough decision, but the right decision.
I wanted to end our time with her somewhere special. Maybe visit a few more places we have yet to see, but it was not meant to be. As soon as we arrived in Florida, our schedule was a constant buzz of busyness with house hunting and the transition of moving from off the road into a stick and brick.
I realized then, what was most important was how we spent our last moments with her.
We found a house just as our time at the Sanlan RV park in Lakeland, Florida was ending. We had already made the arrangements to move the Airstream to Bay Bayou RV Resort in Olds Mar, just outside of Tampa. Bay Bayou was the first RV park we stayed in when we first came to Florida in 2021 and we were still newbies. It was only fitting to end our time with Betty Jo at one of our favorite RV parks and to come full circle while ending our time with her.
A last hoorah does not necessarily have go out with a BANG, sometimes all you really need is a comforting sizzle for closure.
As we roam the roads and highways, looking for that next fantastic stop, keep track of our travels in our Airstream - Betty Jo
