Our last assigned day at the Amazon CamperForce booth in the big tent at Quartzsite couldn’t be finished quick enough. Not because it was hard work, or noisy, or that we were tired of being around so many people and talking about the fun we had at Amazon, but because today was Hannah’s last full day with us.
The RV Show crowd was truly awesome today. We saw so many people from our time in Fernley, and we got to reconnect and share smiles and stories. This is one of those perks of being part of this silly program. Where else do you see people gathering at an employer’s booth at a show? The only other time I have experienced this was when David and a big group of competitors from Eppie’s Great Race would get together in Folsom to relive the race.
As for Miss Hannah, we drive her to the airport in the morning. She is scheduled to be away until June 30. It will be an adjustment for all of us, that is for sure.
So, I am off to hang out with her for just a little while longer tonight, and then I will hopefully sleep. Last time I sent her away to England, I knew it was for only 10 days. This time, it will be 161 days. And I am already counting!
Hannah, if you read this, please know that Dad and I love you so much, and are proud of you and know that you will just thrive out there on your own. But if you need us, you have Kit, Tam, Dad and I who will do anything for you at a moment’s notice. We have your back!
I’m glad that we could have this chat,
