The Happy Nomads 2020 road trip.

On our road trip

This adventure was supposed to end at The Georgia Mountain Eggfest the end of May. Well 2020 had different plans; however, in two days (June 21st, 2020) we start our trek back home. We will be taking advantage of our membership with Boondocker’s Welcome. We will spend the night with three generous hosts in Arkansas, Tennessee and will be home by the 24th of June.

During our time on the road we learned quite a bit regarding life on the road. We have meet a few friendly folks and even some we can call friends. More on that coming.

Major thing we learned is to keep the camper clutter free and if it doesn’t come in and out of the truck bed easy enough we probably should rethink bringing it. Both of us bought some new toys along the way. The Laser Engraver probably should have been shipped back home.

We will be making some modifications to our Camper which will probably bump it’s name up to Wolfden 2.5.

So as quickly as possible the camper will be completely emptied.

The original couch in the trailer is about as comfortable as sitting on a rock. It’s a fold out bed, but we really don’t need it, so it’s being replaced with dual recliner loveseat.

The overhead cabinets are all going to get an added shelf, except the one that already has a shelf.

We bought a cheap 5 drawer storage bin that is super flimsy and the drawers all need to be removed to travel down the road. Going to rebuild the frame and better secure the drawers.

The pass-thru storage area under the bed seemed like a great idea when the trailer was bought, but it has become unruly. So I am going to divide it off into three compartments. One for the hoses and things that are needed on the left side of the trailer. One for the stuff needed on the right side of the trailer. The middle compartment will be used to store our craft supplies under the bed.

With the addition of the Loveseat recliners we will have an area along side of the couch that we will use to store winter items

I will be adding drawers to the two cabinets on either side of the bed for clothes that don’t normally get hung up.

Might redo the dining table to better accommodate Rita’s crafts and allow us to use it to eat.

One thing for sure we will definitely rethink what we bring with us the next time we venture out and yes there will be a next time. Those plans are already in the works.

Thank you all for sticking with us during these trying times. Hopefully things will get better for all of us soon.
