As the Green Machine rumbled to life one last time in our driveway with a new driver at the helm, I knew that another chapter in our lives was coming to an end. We knew several months ago that it was time for the Green Machine (now Greta the Green Machine) to move on to another family, but I just didn’t expect to be this emotional watching someone else take over the drivers seat. The Green Machine was our family chariot right after we sold our cruising sailboat and moved back to the US. We toured the country in it and I guess it’s my visual link right back to our life just off the boat. But several days ago a new family took over the bus and has started new adventures in it. We’ll really miss her comforting presence as our family chariot, but I’m really so happy that she’s gone to another family who has already started great adventures in her.
What can I say. Another era ended and another era started for us as we begin adventures in a new chariot. Yep, we’ve already started taking extended trips tent camping throughout the US and will be bringing all of that info to you on this travel website about traveling slowly and traveling with kids.
