Travel Queen Update!
The time is drawing near for the TQ’s departure, and we’ve been hard at work, prepping her for the maiden voyage. Russ has been working extremely hard on the internal workings of the vehicle (things that my mind cannot comprehend), Sean has been uncaulking and recaulking the outside, and Britt and I have been focused on the “look and feel” of the interior. Our generous sponsors have also started shipping out the gear for this expedition, which we are so grateful to have!
What’s even MORE exciting is that my parents are here this weekend, and my dad is itching to get to work on TQ-related projects. He’s a super handy guy… you should have seen him go to town on our house the last time he was in town. He was all, Where’s the toolbox? Sean and I gestured to the junk drawer where he found two broken screwdrivers and a hammer. The look on his face was priceless. He took us on a whirlwind tour of Lowe’s and set us up with all the necessary tools that homeowners need. If you’re in the market to become a homebuyer, I would highly recommend getting yourself a Steve Shambeau.
Needless to say, this motor home has become a family effort. Brittany’s mom even helped us make cushions during her visit last weekend. Britt and her mom are sewing geniuses. I assisted with some whipstitching.
Here are a few photos showing our progress…
