What looks like a green carpet is actually millions of 80 foot tall Spruce trees. If you decide to go for a stroll through these dark forests without knowing what you're doing, you WILL get lost, and hopefully search and rescue can find you before the bears and the wolves.
Even though the little Bronco has somewhat changed my life I have no desire to move out of the Arctic Fox and into a space as tiny as the little Bronco, after all I didn't name it the LITTLE Bronco for no reason.
Coming back to the Arctic Fox after living in the little Bronco for several days makes me appreciate the size of the Arctic Fox and how comfortable it is to be able to walk around, raise my arms without hitting the ceiling, have more than one room, and not have to move something just to get to something else. These seem like small things, and they are if you're dealing with it for a short period of time, but living that way all the time would get very annoying very quick.
Since I've only been a full timer for about four years I probably still haven't figured out the best way to live this kind of lifestyle, and every once in a while I envision living this lifestyle in a different way such as downsizing the Arctic Fox, but just for the record I never ever give the slightest thought to living in a larger RV. Smaller? Yes, larger?... no way.
Like everyone who's ever owned an RV knows, there are RVs that are great to drive but not much fun to live in, and some that are difficult to drive, but very comfortable to live in, and that seems to be the way the RV lifestyle has to be. Or does it?
When I was retired, thinking about selling my house and moving somewhere else the first thing that occurred to me was there is no place that has decent weather all year long, and one of the solutions to that problem is to have two homes, a summer home, and a winter home. I had no desire to own two homes, in fact I didn't even want to own one, but that is a solution to the weather problem.
So why not own two RVs, as a partial solution to the problem of RVs not being fun to drive and fun to live in? Now that's by no means a perfect solution, and will obviously not fit everyone's way of life, but for me, because of my particular situation it may come closer to working than anything else.
Tomorrow I might expand on what I'm just starting to call the Mothership concept, or maybe not because it's still a new idea to me having just thought of it on my mini-vacation to Rocky Mountain national Park, so it's not actually clear to me how it might work, or if it will work. This will require a lot of relaxing and thinking.... mostly relaxing.
There's many places to hike and backpack in Rocky Mountain national Park, there's lots of clearly marked trails, or you can take off on your own, like right here, and hike till your legs drop off.
