So our dream of just packing and hitting the road didn’t happen as fast as we had hoped:
First off, we spent about a month selling and purging stuff from our house, and did a pretty good job of parring everything down. But, then you have to pack – and packing with a toddler and a baby is not easy.
Then, when we thought we were ready to go, we realized that in order to sell the house, we still needed to get rid of a lot of stuff and prep the house for selling. So instead, we found a place to park our trailer while we finished the house stuff.
Hello Winter Garden RV Resort. Just minutes from downtown Winter Garden, Florida, this quiet RV parks boast a playground, showers, and two heated pools (which mini-man has already discovered and loves!). We chose this place for it’s high ratings and proximity to our house.
I was worried for many reasons:
- I’ve always heard that RV parks have high crime: Not here. This place has been very quiet, and despite the place being pretty full, we hardly see anyone. Just like a normal neighborhood.
- How would the kids adapt: Mini-man loves the RV. There’s plenty of places for him to play and explore. I even seen him become more curious about playing outside! Little-dude (our newest addition) is still really young, so all he needs is mommy and daddy and he’s good.
Honestly, as worried as I’ve been, its been pretty calm and amazing. Which we needed! Trying to unpack in a tiny space makes for a lot of clutter. Add in watching a toddler and a baby while Damon is at the house trying to get projects finished and it makes for some stressful days.
Luckily, we’re finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The last house project is wrapping up today, we have a few more projects to finish in the RV, and we’re ready to hit the road!
I am so happy that we found such a great first stop. While I don’t talk about the resort much in this article, I think that’s a great thing. The whole point is to get out and explore and have adventures. So having a place that’s relaxing but close to everything has been great.
