Day 1 2014 Humungo RV Trip~Columbia, MO

Wow! We had a LOT to pack!!!! We brought all 9 bikes, Scooters, Pogo Sticks LOTS of clothes, our dog and 7 kiddos!!! 

We started out by saying a family prayer led by The Captain.

A lot of times on the road, we have spotty cell reception so THE CAPTAIN is always thinking ahead. He got us handheld walkie talkies that reach up to 8 miles. They are super fun.  OH, did I mention, I am following the RV in our BIG RIG? Why? Placking 9 peeps for 2 months requires a LOT of stuff even when you are scaling down!! Now all I need is a "HANDLE" for my Walkie Talkieness and I should be good to go!

I called ahead to a pizza place, ordered pizza and we ran in and grabbed it and ate supper in the RV. MEANWHILE, one of the bigger kids was helping Poppy go potty and I hear BLOOD CURDLING screaming... Her finger was shut in the bathroom door.  I proceeded to yell a bit, give a lecture and nurture her finger and ask if she needed a bandaid. SHE EVEN LOOKED AT HER FINGER and SCREAMED EVEN LOUDER... Then about 5 minutes later she said. "It's not my "SINGER" that got hurt, that's MARKER MOMMY, it was my THUMB!  Yep, Mom of the Year right here...  We all laughed REALLY HARD and I apologized.  

We spent our first night at the Columbia, MO Wally World parking lot. This is called BOONDOCKING. Most all Wal-Marts allow RVers to stay the night in their lot.  Below is our "CONVOY" Breaker 1... 9. The U-haul behind the RV holds our bikes, etc... Roger that?

Here are my passengers!!!! It's SO COOL that they can have their headphones on, watching a movie and I can jam out and listen to THE MESSAGE and they have no clue what I'm dancing in my seat to!!

Hoping to Make it to Nashville tomorrow night!!!
