Driving across Iowa...

I was texting a really good friend from WA on Sunday afternoon. She asked if we like our new location and how we were settling. I began to tell her that even though we just moved here last weekend, we will be moving again next weekend! She responded with; "I love your life!! It's always an adventure and exciting!" Amen Katelyn, Amen!

We are currently living at a county park. It is beautiful here! We have a lush and spacious lawn and there is a lake. This is literally my view as I am blogging...

 
 
Right now Hubbies commute to work is less than 15 minutes which is fantastic! Unfortunately the job show up is going to start jumping all over the state of Iowa! Okay, not all over... But it will bounce back and forth within a 3 hour radius. So we need to find somewhere that is somewhat located centrally but will also have the amenities that I need to keep my brain sane. =)
 
So we set out to find the "Perfect" RV park! We were literally in the car for 7 hours.... This of course included a short visit to Camping World and a stop at a park so Monkey could get out his wiggles. Our first stop was at what seemed to be the "Perfect" Mobile Home Park! Hubby recognized a co-workers truck so he knocked on his 5th wheel door and we got some advice! But you usually don't stop looking after you've only looked at one place! So on we went... Only to find...
 
~ 15 mi out of town, on the highway, and wouldn't work in the winter
 
~ No open spots and VERY SCARY!
 
~ Even scarier!!
 
~ They literally kept getting scarier...
 
~  On the Golf Course!!! But had no water or sewer...
 
~ Tiny town that only had a gas station. The closest city was 45 minutes away
 
Therefore, after all the searching we decided that the first place we looked at was by far our best option! Occasionally Hubby will have a 1 hour commute but after trading in my SUV that got 17 MPG for a VW Jetta TDI that gets 50 MPG, we are ok with a commute!
