Virgin, UT

Place 85: Day 1: Virgin, UT 🇺🇸 – Campervaning In Utah!

Leaving Vegas

We were up to get checked out and have some breakfast.

We checked out via mobile and queued up to get our bags in storage.

Once we got our bags checked, we headed over to McDonald’s for a quick easy breakfast and a sit down.

Once we finished our food, we went to the check in counter to ask a few questions we had and by the time that was done, we wanted to go and grab a taco from the place we had visited list time in Vegas.

We took Tom to the Mexican place and each had a carnitas taco, which is delicious pork and vegetables, which was perfect to tide us over.

That took us to the perfect time to go and grab our bags and head off.

We got them and jumped in a Lyft up to a house where we were pickup up a campervan.

Our Campervan

The couple we got the camper from were a lovely older French couple that rent out a few campervans.

We had a tour of it, they told us how to use different things and that was pretty much that.

It’s a perfect size for the 3 of us, too.

We got in it and hit the road, heading to rent a bike from Tom.

Bike Rental

We got to a bike rental place but it seemed that there isn’t actually a shop there. We called them and they said that there is no shop and they only deliver to hotels, so we canned that idea.

We found another place that was en route, so we stopped off there instead.

Tom got a bike for a good price which was nice and easy and we went to grab coffees for the journey.

To Utah!

We set off and up to Utah Tom drove.We had an uneventful drive really, just drove through Nevada, Arizona and finally into Utah.

We stopped off at Walmart once we got into Hurricane, Utah and got a few supplies for our 3 day campervan stay.

We drove the rest of the way, figuring out where to go and then driving down into the gravel roads and finally out into the campsite.

We were greeted and showed our spot, where we setup and got ready to hunker down.

We got a bit of food in us, just some frozen pasta stuff we bought, and then relaxed for a bit before we went to sleep, as we have to be up relatively early tomorrow.

It’s actually quite warm at the moment inside our camper, so that’s a win!


This Time Last Year!

Place 81 – Orlando,FL 🇺🇸 – 6 Hour Airport Wait & Reunited

Early Start

We were up at 05:00 but luckily everything was packed and ready to go already, so we didn’t have to worry about that.

We got to the airport with more then enough time and we checked our bags and got to security.

Security took a bit of time but no longer than 15 minutes. We did have to take food out of our bags, though.

Once we got through, Curtis got a coffee and we waited to board the plane.

Austin > Orlando

We boarded the plane and were in the B section this time, so we were hoping we would get to sit together.

Luckily, we did get to sit together, which was a bonus.

The flight was just 2.5 hours, but neither of us felt too great.

We landed and got our bags before finding some seats to chill on.

6 Hour Wait

We waited for 6 hours for Kim’s family to arrive!

We got coffee, Kim napped a bit and we scrolled the internet aimlessly.

Reunion

Kim finally got to reunite with her family and see her sister Abbie for the first time in over 2 years!

We all got to the car rental area and got the car and then off we went.

Florida Home

We have rented an Airbnb for all of us and it is about 1 hour from the airport in the area near Cocoa Beach.

We arrived and were quite tired, but had to go and do a shop. Before we did that, Curtis had a phone interview for a possible job, which only took 10 minutes.

We went for a shop and got enough food for a week or so and then headed back for some dinner.

Dinner

Kim made pulled pork sliders and we had some mac and cheese to go with it, too.

We all finished dinner, cleared up and that was time for bed.

Kim’s family had been up for a while and it was technically 02:00 for them and we had been up since 05:00 with little sleep before that, so bed time it was.

We’ve come to Florida to chill, so we’ll try and do that.
