1 LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT

images (6)

The car went into the dealership this morning to make sure everything was good to begin my road trip. There’s something weird about my check engine light; it keeps coming on. The first time this happened Josh took it up to his Grand Dad’s garage and put it on some machine and couldn’t find a problem so they reset it and forgot about it – 2 days later it was back on. This has happened a few times and they’ve tried a couple things – but still.

Everyone seems to think it’s just some kind of glitch and no big deal; the problem is when it comes on so does my cruise control light so my car thinks the cruise control is already on and won’t let me turn it on. This isn’t too much of a hassle now but will be when I get out on the highway also how am I to know in time if a problem comes up if my car is always telling me there’s a problem?

Anyway, they are going to bypass something or other and hopefully solve the problem as well as do a tune up, change the oil, top all the fluids, and do the Vermont State Inspection.; then I should be ready to go -no problems. Also the last of the supplies I ordered for the trip from Amazon came today – the floor mats for the tent just came in and the road atlas got here last night. I was awake until midnight trying to decide where I want to stop and what I want to see.

I AM GETTING SO EXCITED! I CAN ALMOST FEEL THE WINDS OF THE NATION ON MY FACE AS I WONDER ACROSS THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

THANK YOU GODDESS.

ALMOST GONE – I’M GETTING THERE!

My tent was delivered yesterday! Here’s the description.

downloadNEW! Coleman WeatherMaster 10 Person 2 Room Family Camping Tent w/ Rainfly Cover

  • 10 person/2 room tent has 17’x 9′ footprint and fits three queen airbeds
  • Exclusive WeatherTec System/Keeps you dry — Guaranteed ; Great for family camping
  • CPX® 6 Overhead LED Lighting system ; Included carry bag with separate stake and pole sacks
  • 80″ center peak height for room to stand and move ; Privacy vent window ; Interior gear pocket

Josh (Moriah’s fiancee) thought I was crazy when Fed-X delivered it, but  then he’s always thought that. This tent is easy up and according to the manufacturer can be assembled by 1 person in about 20 minutes.

I also ordered the items below from Amazon  which should be arriving around the 14th in 1 order.

Intex Classic Downy Airbed Set with 2 Pillows and Double Quick Hand Pump, Queen

and picked up
Coleman Tent Kit as backup
as well which I should have by Monday.
Everything else I’ll  need right away I should already have around the house somewhere or be able to pick up at a thrift shop or the Dollar Store.
Hopefully by the time it starts getting chilly I will have found a decent camper that I can afford. I leave that to the Goddess.
As soon as my Atlas gets here I will start planning my voyage and post the first leg of the trip for you all – probably roughly down the East coast with a stop over in North Carolina to visit my brother in law and his wife and in Florida to see Gavin and Melissa and maybe a few others if they’re on my way and want to set up a meet.
I WILL NEED TO BURN SOME NEW CD MUSIC BEFORE I TAKE OFF THOUGH – I CAN’T GO WITHOUT MY PAGAN MUSIC AND I DON’T THINK I’LL FIND ANY ON MY TADIO.
