OK, that’s one word three times. (bonus cookie for anyone who gets this little reference).

I love planning vacations, planning this one is just out of this world! So much to do, so much to organise. I’ve got myself a pretty new binder to organise everything properly. I’ve been making list for everything, a list of things we shouldn’t forget to pack, a list of things we still need to buy over here, a list of things to order in the US, a list of things to buy once we have our RV, a list of campsites in stunning location but that we can’t book in advance, … I still need to start on the list of all the activities we can do in all these places we’re visiting. But one thing is for sure, I can’t wait to start this adventure. Everytime I look at something I get even more excited.

For example, do a Google image search for Madison Campground Yellowstone… Now tell me honestly if that didn’t make you smile!

We’ve also arranged to speak at the Utah PVA in Salt Lake City (Professional Videographers Association… for those who are wondering or might confuse it with something else). So we’ll be able to meet up with some of the other weirdos in our profession! There’s also a Belgian Waffle shop in Salt Lake City, which I definitely want to go to!

We’ve also bought ourselves a new though little camera that’s waterproof and schock proof, so we can don’t have to worry all too much. Speaking of cameras. We will be taking our proper cameras too and we’re planning on making little video clips along the way. So if the internet connections in the RV parks along the way is half decent (and I’ve heard it actually often isn’t at all!), we’ll be uploading those along with the photos.

Can you tell I’m excited?!

I’ve booked a bunch of campsites, but won’t be sharing those just yet. Niels likes a few surprises along the way, so we’ll keep these a secret for now. He just gets a bit worried now and again about how cold things might get, and from what I’ve seen, heard and read, things might get really cold and snowy at times. All in the spirit of adventure ;-)

And we’ve got ourselves a little bobblehead mascot for the trip!

“I don’t care if it rains or it’s fine,
Long as I got my plastic Einstein,
Sittin’ on the dashboard of my car,
To travel with him is my proclivity,
He has a theory ’bout relativity,
Cosmic’ly he knows exactly where we are.”

But in the meantime, there’s still loads of planning to do, and more importantly, more work to do too! I shouldn’t get my backlog of work get too high considering we’re away for so long. So back to the grindstone it is!
