Wrap Up and Mountain Home, Idaho – RV Road Trip: Six States in Three Weeks Series

It finally happened.  Our last stop on our three week trip.  Nooooo!!  It was hard to face the fact that our family adventure was almost over.  Just one last day of driving.  Five-hundred thirty miles to go and then it was back to reality.  Kids back to school.  My husband back to work.  And me back to being a stay-at-home mom.  And that was…good.  My family and I are very blessed and very thankful.  That is one of the many things I learned from our vacation.

So as I began writing about this adventure, I titled one of my posts, The RV Road Trip that Changed My Life.  It’s true.  This experience was life changing in so many ways.  One of the most important lessons was about stuff.  I did NOT miss one single thing from home.  I learned that all I needed was my family (and friends!  Of course we missed y’all).  But really, all the things I have sitting back at home, or all the things on my mental wish list, are completely insignificant.  That is a good feeling.

Moab, Utah – RV Road Trip: Six States in Three Weeks Series

My first impression of Moab was personal.  I fell in love immediately.  Maybe it is the stark contrast between our lush, green forests of the Pacific Northwest compared to the red rock and blue skies of Moab.  But whatever it is, Moab is a truly unique and beautiful landscape.  And after one visit you will be hooked too.

I started visiting a few years ago.  Every year, I would actually fly to Salt Lake City and drive down to meet my dad.  My dad and his friends would drive from Texas and Florida in their class A coaches pulling their toys and jeeps used to explore the 4×4 trails.  But this past April, my family and I made Moab one of our last stops on our three week trip.

We stayed six nights at my favorite RV campground, Portal RV Resort.  I love the location.  It is right near town on the main road through Moab and it is set off the road so you don’t get any highway noise.  This resort is very nice, clean and well maintained with all the amenities you want.  I have never stayed at any other place in Moab, but why would I?  This place has [Read more…]
