Andrew awoke bright and early at six in the morning, jumping up and down in his crib and yelling, “RV, RV, let’s go in it!” Mom and Dad were in a somewhat different frame of mind having attended the raucous Bickel/Biggs wedding at the fabulous LaPlaya Resort in Naples the night before. We (Mark) managed to pull our(him)selves together and make the final preparations to the Royan Vehicle for its journey. As high noon approached, Mark’s hangover caught up with him just in time to get behind the wheel and start our thirty day adventure. April, pregnant and otherwise feeling just fine, settled in immediately for a nap on the couch.
First stop, the far away mystery that is Fort Myers. We needed an air filter for the generator from Camping World. Our RV supply store adventure was going nicely until Andrew rounded a corner and unexpectedly encountered an aisle full of irritable Chihuahuas. This scared the daylights out of him and created what will likely become an irrational lifelong fear of dogs in shopping carts.
Dinner, bath, and a few books later, “Bedtime!” was announced and the whole family fell into a deep RV slumber. Tomorrow we will head North - desperately searching for something other than 100 degree temperatures.
