I just wanted to sneak this short post in my blog about making reservations and getting sick on the road.
I like reservations. Some campgrounds near attractions or National Parks are booked months or years in advance. On our Wild West Adventure, I have a mixture of reserved nights and non-reserved nights. I want the comfort of knowing I have a place reserved on the July 4th holiday and when we are near a National Park. So far I am reserved until June 24th. I also have reservations for the whole month of July as we will be near National Parks and I felt I needed the holiday reserved. .
Getting sick on the road can be a real pain in the butt. There is a difference if the driver gets sick or the passenger gets sick. On day one of our Wild West Adventure, as luck would have it, I woke up with the stomach flu. We had reservations for our first two nights on the road. I could have called and paid a cancellation fee, but as miserable as I was, I was ready to get on the road. Thankfully, we did not have to make any emergency stops for me to use the bathroom. The plus to emergency stops, we are fully contained so I have my own bathroom. No gas station bathrooms for me. We also make sure we have all of the meds we need. Pepto Bismol, Tums, Benadryl for allergies, Imodium for bathroom issues. Aspirin. We have a good first aid kit. We have plenty of band-aids. We are like a pharmacy on wheels. It is good to be prepared.
My stomach flu lasted a few days. I slept a lot. Hubby helped me with my inside work.
God Bless, Stay Safe, Be Kind to Every Kind and always be prepared.
