Wellllll…it looks like our Ecuador adventure is coming to a close. Actually, it is a definite. Our Ecuador adventure is coming to a close. We will be saying Vaya con Dios at the end of the month and heading back to the states. It is bittersweet. We have loved our time here. The Ecuadorian people are amazing! The country is beautiful and diverse. And the availability of almost everything makes it a tempting place to stay. But, trips back to the states for medical reasons every 3 to 6 months have negated any savings we may have accumulated. So, we have parked here long enough and it is time for a new adventure!
Our last trip back to the states allowed us to get the first item needed for our new chapter…
Let me just say that this is a Beast! I haven’t driven it yet, and don’t plan to in the near future. The thing is sooooo biiiiggggg! But it rides like your favorite rocking chair. The seats fully recline and the back seats have as much leg room and the fronts. We had to drive all the way to Ohio from central New York state to get this baby.
When we get back, after the doctor’s visits for the BF are done, we will be looking at getting a new home to haul behind it. One of three brands, we aren’t sure yet.
We have been drooling over Grand Design. I love their Solitude and the Reflection. The BF is leaning toward a Momentum.
Then the BF found Vanleigh RV. He like the Beacon, the new model for the coming year. I like the Vilano. Either way, these babies are like a luxury condo on wheels!
This morning we peaked at a Redwood. Because I haven’t walked in one yet and gotten a feel for the quality and layout, my heart isn’t feeling this one yet.
Once we have a Beauty to haul behind the Beast, we will be hitting the road and exploring the U.S. Our country is beautiful and there is so much to see. The BF has never explored the country from coast to coast. It will be fun to show him the places I went as a child – the southwest, the west coast from Mexico to Canada, the Mississippi River from conception to the Gulf, Tuscon, San Antonio…the list goes on and on.
And, because he is retired military and in the VA system, medical care for him will be readily available, no matter where we might be parked.
The current chapter is soon closing. A new chapter with a new adventure is just ahead!
