Last weekend we were invited to participate in a little get together affectionately called "Vansgiving". We got together with the occupants of 8 other adventure mobiles to celebrate and be thankful for life and the opportunity to explore this beautiful earth.
Friday evening we packed up and headed out for what we thought would be an easy 3.5 drive to our destination. 7 hours and 1 grumpy driver later we rolled up to our spot for the weekend. It's definitely nice to arrive to places before daylight leaves, but it's also pretty rad to wake up in the morning without a clue as to your surroundings. And as it so often happens in the beautiful Pacific NorthWest, we awoke to some pretty darn beautiful views.
Saturday was spent around a fire getting to know these awesome humans and attempting to keep warm. It was so nice to hear stories of life and adventures. Then in the afternoon we all helped to put together a Vansgiving feast. From fried turkey, to green bean casserole, to herding children and dogs, to chopping wood to keep the fire raging, to homemade mashed potatoes and sweet treats, everyone chipped in to help with the celebration. We're feeling very thankful to be apart of a community that welcomes any and all with open arms.
Because when you're jokingly asked to create a turkey out of the vegetables you're bringing, you take it as the challenge it was meant to be.
