Dear Other People,
Our maiden voyage in Pirate Molly the cream-colored RV began with a rumbling trip up and down the Appalachian mountains towards Fayetteville, West Virginia.
Advice to fellow RVers: when driving in mountains, follow the trucks. When they get into the right lane, do it too, and pop into second gear.
We were a bit nervous to be out on our own, but free, too. Finally free and the feeling is growing!
We stopped for lunch at a farmer’s market just outside of Wytheville, VA, where we scarfed some chicken salad sandwiches and decided to look around before setting off again. I swear, if all of our money weren’t budgeted towards buying fuel on this trip, we would have bought the whole place out! Fresh corn, big fat tomatoes, jams and preserves, funny tie-dyed shirts, apples… As it was, Candace escaped with a pumpkin whoopee pie and John, a whole loaf of handmade sourdough bread.
