We have been re-thinking our storage options for the road life....everything is different from living in a house compared to a home on rolling wheels. We chose a smaller footprint for lots of reasons, cost being the number one, ease of driving, accessibility of national and state parks camping locations, and also we admire and desire a life that is less cluttered with "things". (Please do not look into our storage unit full of the "things" I could not part with while on the road.....ahem...) Seriously, I am so looking forward to a simple life that is full of beautiful scenery, historic locations, faces I have missed and love seeing once again and new faces to get to know and love!!! Paul and I talk all the time about what we must take along and what we will have to reconsider and where and how will we store whatever......and all the while we are packing up our belongings and getting ready to store them for two years, at least!
I will store my bright red Kitchen aid stand mixer that weighs 100 lbs. (at least it feels like a hundred), I will take my Cuissinart food processor (must have salsa), I will leave behind our 50+ boxes of Christmas decor, and take.....memories and will probably do a bit of decorating in December, I will store all my garden pots and containers and take along a couple of real-looking artificial white petunias to stick in a jar for the look of real flowers, I boxed up all my cookbooks and will take one binder I have combined all my favorites into...just in case I have to bake monkey bread! And on and on.....you are not what you have....you are what you do!
Heading off for our visit to NYC, Christmas 2011
Cathy, Zion, Paul
So, when was the last time you stepped out of your "cz"?
