The first night in our new home…motor home that is!

Stacy Westfall shopping at Walmart

Stacy’s shopping trip…totes and chairs take up lots of room!

While moving out of our home in January I had to admit that I had a small problem with totes. Now, eight months later, as we moved into our Fleetwood, I somehow managed to convince my husband that I needed…more TOTES! I think he might remember my previous tote obsession because he tentatively asked ‘how many’ totes I wanted. I took this as a hint and started with two…for now:)

Although I am dreaming of camping with my horses later this month (maybe for my birthday-hint-hint-husband) I am currently camping in a parking lot. Although the view might not be ideal, the idea behind it is brilliant; educate, educate, educate. Today was all about getting to know the motor home with hands on training and tonight is a lesson in camping…in the parking lot. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure how necessary this was…until I tried to flush the toilet a bit ago and almost couldn’t figure it out, lol. Thankfully I didn’t need to call in help but it is nice to know that if I needed to, I could.

I have so many questions, dreams and thoughts that involve living on the road that I actually woke up every hour last night, I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. I’m so excited about our next horse show and especially the Congress which is coming up fast. Every year I have said I wanted to trail ride more…maybe now that can happen. Maybe its time to update my website to include a form for hosting a clinic; must have RV parking and four stalls. The possibilities are almost limitless.

Tomorrow is another learning day and then we will head back to Ohio. We aren’t actually towing a trailer with the motor home…at least not yet…but we still have a horse with us!

    After all the input you got about buying the RV, I would love to know what made you decide to get one and why that one!

    • Stacy on September 13, 2014 at 12:17 pm

      Yep, I am working on that blog and video:)
      Watch for it!

    A clinic in the Sunbury/Marengo area would be great. Looking forward to seeing you at Congress.

    Good for you Stacy, I think you will enjoying being on the road in a Motorhome. The first time I saw you was in Red Deer Alberta. Are you coming back to Red deer again? We go to Arizona in the winters for a couple of months and no we don’t have a motorhome but a fifth wheel trailer. We have friends that have them and they are pretty nice!!!! So please enjoy your new adventure for a few years. Pat Burton Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2014 03:06:55 +0000 To:

    So I will ask the question no one else asked. How do you have a horse with you and no trailer?

      Roxy is on the back window

  9. simone schulz on September 12, 2014 at 3:38 am

    Stacy, Which Fleetwood model did you decide to get?? Which chassis is it built on? Jes

    Hi Stacy. I would love to meet you in congress! I’m going out for my birthday October 18 I’m not sure how long I’ll be out. Is it possible that I could see you or even learn a few tricks? Thank you so much!

    • Stacy on September 15, 2014 at 4:07 pm

      I will be there from Sept 30-October 11…sounds like we might miss each other:)

  13. Angela T. on September 11, 2014 at 11:34 pm

    I’ve lived in an older Fleetwood for almost a year now and I love it. I dream of traveling the country with my horses someday (or ever just down the road).

  14. Dawn Pohl on September 11, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    Stacy and Jesse, Bill retired in 09 and by Feb 1 we had bought a Fleetwood and hit the road. We took 2 big trips a year and had a ball. We kept blogs and turned them into books at I highly recommend it. We sold it this year after deciding to do some improvements to our home. Happy trails! Dawn and Bill Pohl

    We would LOVE for you to hold a Clinic here in Van Wert Oh.
