MORE UPDATES! Less tragedy!

We would like to thank you. Yes you. The outpouring of support, compassion, generosity, and the sharing of your own stories has helped us more than you know.

It’s not a lie. This has been devastating. Terrifying. Speaking for myself (Saucy G), I have had thoughts of giving up.

We won’t give up, though. We will never surrender! galaxy-quest-never-give-up-never-surrender

First, we have to see about repairs. Insurance will cover some, but not all. We are going to have the Big Box Place look at it, and repair it if possible. This has us a little wary, but the work will be “guaranteed” by insurance.

Other than that, though, we are pretty much on our own. Insurance will only cover the minimum of what was lost, only $3000. That SOUNDS like a lot of money, but the impressive new pots and pans set cost $2500. Granted, we wanted to live a minimalistic lifestyle, but this isn’t exactly what we had in mind. Obviously we won’t be getting the impressive big kid pots and pans, but there is so much to replace! All the things! Literally!

Farewell Royal Prestige. We hardly knew ye. 😦

We are also looking into where to stay in Vegas for the next week or so. It’s harder than one might think to find a room, that allows pets, over the 4th of July, in America’s Playground. *sigh* They are either WAY expensive, WAY sketchy, or WAY Don’t Allow Pets. Who knew.

no way

We can tell you that we slept like babies last night, though.

Waking up every two hours crying.

 

When we awoke this morning, it was a brand new day! The sun was shining, the Mews were smiling (well, not really, they are starting to get antsy), and we started on “Operation RV Recovery” or “Operation BAD GUYS SUCK, We are AWESOME.” Not knowing where to start, we thought we would check out social media to see what the rest of the world was up to.

Turns out you were all trying to get us back on our feet!

Jason Hart has been a friend to Awesome K for over *cough lots cough* years. He is like a brother-from-another-mother. Well, Mr. Hart has set up a GOFUNDME page. This is so Awesome, and Wonderful, and Thoughtful. It is so, well, Awesome!

We also saw that a lot of people on here wanted to donate to our cause, and were looking for a paypal! We set one up, in case you were still feeling like helping. That can be found at:

https://paypal.me/awesomesauceduo

The name on the account is Saucy G’s real name. Apparently AwesomeSauce Duo isn’t a legal name. Silly.

Today we are feeling a little better. A little stronger. A lot more loved. Thank you, again, for lifting our spirits when we needed it the most. It can be a scary world out there, but it is also filled with wonderful people. Thank you for reminding us of that.

More to come soon. Maybe even an adventure post or two, since that is what we do after all!

Here we are.

Sitting in an (almost) empty house. The Worlds Greatest RV, Trailer, and Smart Car are on the street, (almost) ready to go.

It is such a strange feeling! Being so ready to hit the road we could burst, while at the same time being so terrified we could feel sick. Terror, Jubilation, Anxiety, Excitement! It’s such a mix of emotions!

Tomorrow is it. We hit the road. Two people, three cats, probably too much stuff, and a lot of hope. Hope that the adventure is as amazing as we have been dreaming it could be. Hope that the engine doesn’t fall out of the RV. Hope that the cats don’t explode. Hope that we can actually do this. Thankfully we have found some AMAZING people on forums, which have given us  a lot of encouragement. That, and the planning planning planning, we should at least last a week or two. Probably longer. Hopefully a lot longer.

Matilda Pants and Archer Funnyfoot couldn’t be more ready. Matilda has been planning this adventure for years, and she can’t wait to get it started. Archer just wants to go where Awesome K goes. Lana, on the other hand, is nonplussed. I have a feeling Awesome K and I won’t be sleeping tonight. In a lot of ways, this is the night before Christmas. You know you should sleep, but you can’t because tomorrow is filled with wonder and delight, and you can’t wait to see it.

So. For now we will get ourselves ready for the morning, and try to get some sleep tonight.
