Our plan for the maiden voyage of the used RV we bought in November was a reasonable, well-mapped one to take my mom and our two smaller dogs to visit our family in Tennessee.
It’s a drive we have made dozens of times with views of the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country giving way to the mountains and river valleys of Tennessee. Milder weather and the promise of seeing our cousins coupled with the roominess of our drivable lodgings would make the 7-hour drive a pleasant one. But the best laid plans, Robert Burns wrote, “gang aft agley.” For those not familiar with Scottish vernacular from the 1700s, “gang aft agley” means to “go often askew.” And boy, oh boy, did our best laid plans ever go askew!
We have congratulated each other for learning so much about the art of RV living over the past few months while we got the RV we have dubbed the Nextchaptermobile ready for traveling adventures. We read the owner’s manual, had the engine and the tires checked, took advice from seasoned campers, read blogs and life hacks from Pinterest.
