Pre-Adventure Adventure

On Saturday, my sister, Kelsie, and I will be flying to Vegas to pick up our temporary home on wheels for the week! We will be traveling in a campervan from Las Vegas around Utah to the Grand Canyon and ending at the Hoover Darn. Although this is similar to what I’ll be doing in my RV, this trip was planned months before I decided on my lifestyle change and won’t be quiiiite the same. The main difference is a week of adventure vs. full-time travel. But I think this upcoming week will give me a good glimpse of what’s to come. For those of you that are wondering how it will be different, here is a comparison of a campervan and a Class C RV (big table fan here):
