Day one went off without any major glitches. We got a shout out from Pastor Steve and a warm send off from our church family so we are covered in prayer on our trip! It was quite humbling and a little emotional for me. Kindness is harder for me to handle than meanness for some reason… 🤷‍♀️
We had breakfast with DJ and we headed out.
Here’s some typical Wallinworld stuff…We stopped for an adjustment just before the 18 mile stretch and about a minute after taking off again Steve calls (we are in two vehicles for a bit till he brings the Jeep to IL) and says there was a big the bump in the lot pulling out and a bunch of stuff flew out of the cabinet and it “sounds bad.” 😳
I picture the bathroom door busting open and Luke flying out from the RV bathroom when Phil jerked the wheel in Modern Family 😂😂 I said we’d deal with it later. I remembered my fish in his bowl in in the sink BELOW the cabinet and I’m now imagining all the contents of cabinet landing on the bowl and breaking it and my poor fish flopping around in the sink dying!! 😳 I call Steve back and and I ask if the fish is ok.
He: I don’t know
Me: Can you look?
He: No, I’m driving
Me: Can’t you just like glance over your shoulder and see if you can see the bowl over the top of the sink? If the bowl is still intact – he’s ok. (Makes sense to me)
He: No I can’t – I’m driving.
To be honest I really don’t know what the sight line is from the drivers seat to the sink, or how much a guy with back and neck issues would have to turn, while driving, without causing great bodily harm to “glance back”, but I worried across the entire stretch!! When we were stopped at a light and he was able to look. The fish was fine. 👍
We got to Estero and cousins Debbie and Terri Jarke met up with us and took us out for a bite. ♥️ The long day kicked in and we pretty much turned in without so much as a campfire! Looking forward to checking out Koreshan State Park before pulling out…

Hello / Goodbye
Whole Lotta Rosie on the move
Easy to look back and see – right??
Stress over a $5 fish 🙄
