After seven years of travel adventures, we decided in late August that it was time to sell our Vistabule. We purchased the camper in 2014 with a dream of seeing the country and then created a list of national parks and landmarks we both wanted to visit. Stephen kept this list tucked in our road atlas and periodically reviewed it. Our first two years with the Vistabule were limited to camping in the Midwest but when we retired and our children were launched, we began full time travel all over the country.
Stephen recently revisited our dream travel list and realized it was mostly fulfilled….except for Alaska. We fully embraced our goal of endless travel, living in a tiny space and enjoying the moment. Our hearts are full and we feel completely satisfied.
Once we made the decision to sell, it did not take long to find a buyer. Kathleen is a college professor from Utah and is nearing retirement. She drove to Arizona a few weeks ago and spent the day with us while we walked her through all the functions of the Vistabule. Afterwards, she confidently hooked up the camper and drove away with a smile. It was a seamless transaction and we are thrilled that Kathleen will carry on adventures in the Vistabule.
Even though we have set down roots in Arizona and enjoy a more stationary life, our travels will continue. We are not finished exploring. Alaska is still on our bucket list …and without a camper perhaps a cruise would be a good option.
As for this blog….I will continue writing.
