|Before & After|
We moved our couch out of the slide-out and put in a crib and a mini wardrobe, which is in the corner and pretty hard to see from this photo. Once I find a good rocking chair, that'll go in front of the wardrobe.
I'm back to answer a few more RVing Logistics questions! Feel free to ask any others you may have in the comments section!
How will you handle all the traveling with a baby?
I have no idea!
We plan to be relatively stationary during the first year since Ryan will be in school any ways. We might make a Spring Break trip, we might not. It all just depends. After that though, I'm not too concerned. Since we like to set up a "home base" and then take short trips all around it, we usually only take trips that are 1-4 hours away... and I keep hearing that if you leave a few minutes before nap-time baby won't even know the difference.
I'm sure I'll do all kinds of posts on traveling with a baby once the time comes!
Do you ever miss just living a normal life?
Nope! We pretty much do live a normal life, just travel a little more often, so it doesn't feel that strange to us.
I of course miss certain things here and there... a normal toilet, a bathtub my pregnant belly could fit into, more cabinets... but most of the time I don't really care about those things since they're a trade-off for extra travel.
How do you deal with banks?
This is probably the most frustrating part.
We definitely prefer credit unions for their interest rates and their non-profit business outlooks... but we went ahead and switched to a "big bank" any ways since we figured it'd be far easier to deal with any deposits and withdrawals that way. False!
Even big banks aren't available in every city, or even every state, and if I had it to do over again I would have stayed at our credit union. Now we instead do what we would have done if we'd stuck with them, mail in our deposits and get cash by getting cash back at the grocery store... except we essentially earn no interest in our savings account this way.
If you're planning to start a big travel adventure, my advice is to stick with a financial institution you like. Don't go for one you think will be more convenient because it WON'T always be more convenient!
