Today is the day that most people can sit around a table with family and talk about what they are thankful for as they feast on turkey and stuffing. When you’re on the road, it’s a little different. We do carry on a tradition of our own though. Whatever town we are in, on Thanksgiving day, we look for a Cracker Barrel. It’s a tradition started when mom was no longer able to cook. It’s the place she chose to go eat because they had the home cooking she enjoyed. Now, both sets of parents are gone, and we find happiness in knowing that wherever we are, we can still have that Thanksgiving memory. We have other family in different states that still get together, but it’s the quiet little sit downs that we reflect upon rather than the crowds.
What are we thankful for this season? We are thankful for another year on the road. We chose this life to get away from 80 hour work weeks, and abusive pasts. It has worked out well for us. We can work and relax at the same time. We get to see wonderful places and reach all sorts of nice people. From the mountains to sea, we have friends who have left their marks on our lives. A lot of them are RVers like us, traveling from place to place, making fond memories along the way. We are thankful for each other. For the love and support we have that can get us through anything at all. We are thankful for our wonderful ESA and camp kitty, Samantha (Sam), who is here for us, no matter what. She had adapted to the RV lifestyle and loves to go wherever we take her. She is a a strong spirit for us both and we cherish her love an kindness. We are thankful to all our readers. We couldn’t do this blog without you. We wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and we look forward to sharing our travels with you. We have fun plans ahead!
