I am starting to write this December 12 at 9:40 a full 24 hours before we are at the Austin airport picking up our brother. I just can’t contain the excitement!! It’s been 11 1/2 weeks since River seen my big bro and I miss him like crazy.
Kember and I aren’t entirely sure how we will fit but that’s for our future selves to figure out... Kember and I are just sort enough to fit in the van fully standing up, well you cannot wear shoes or even a hat. The most comfortable place to stand is right under the sunroof adding an extra inch of head space. You can even open it to add an extra half inch to that!! I know crazy right. Almost feels like we aren’t living in a van.
What really feels great is when we pop the top of our van adding several feet of head room and tons of storage for all of our crap (Kember’s crap that is). There’s a key tip for you, travel to warm places so you can have all the doors open and the top popped, really brings the outside in. That’s something people look for in a home... right mom?
Anyway I’ll continue this when We get out brother! Dane hope you are prepared to live with you 2 sisters and the most tiny space possible. In all honesty I wouldn’t ask for 2 better people to do this with. Well maybe my cats, but that’s not important now. What is important is that I love my siblings.
PICKED UP THE BROTHER!!!! Honestly I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am to be here in Austin Texas with Kember and Dane. It is truly something I never expected to do, go on a road trip with my siblings, with no end date.
I will write more about what we will get out reckless selves into but until then I will just enjoy having my brother around who I have not see in months!!
