We understand the reasoning behind the team leaders living in an RV for the 10 months we're on the road. It essentially provides a home...a constant place we can come back to after a long day of concerts or driving. We've been told, "No, it's not a camper. No, it's not a trailer." I guess "RV" sounds more glamorous? It's not. Living on the RV is extremely difficult. Granted, we're still getting used to it. Here are a few pictures:
We have quickly discovered the pros and cons of RV living.
-Everytime we open the shower door, we realize the soap and shampoo has once again fallen onto the floor (because our home has wheels and moves).
-The window shades are almost always down because a)our view is a parking lot, or b)any stranger could become a too-familiar friend if he/she is walking by
-Each day, we sort of "baby proof" the entire RV- take everything off countertops, put shoes away, etc. because if we don't store it, we know it will all be on the floor the minute we leave the parking lot.
-Showers are a constant guessing game. Will I get hot water this time? Will the water run out while I have soap on my hair? Will the water keep draining or will the tank get too full to drain?
-Also a guessing game: If I turn on this light, will I blow a fuse? Can I blow dry my hair with the air conditioning on?...I better turn it off.
-If we park on any incline (or decline) at all, the doors swing open (or closed) and we have no control over them.
-Closet space. I'm going to have to stop shopping or begin donating to some lucky lady.
-Any kind of space.
-I just cleaned my entire home with 3 wet wipes.
We really are thankful that we are not checking in and out of hotels every night. It's just taking a toll on us, especially Jay, who needs his space and his "alone time." Slowly but surely, we're making it work.
