A New Perspective During a Pandemic

When it became clear to us that this summer there would be no traveling to Israel, summer camp, or regular vacationing, we decided to try something we had dreamed about for years. Rent an RV! We figured it was the only way we could leave our home and not worry about using public bathrooms.

So Maital, our three children, ages 9, 7, and 4, and I found an RV that would suit our needs for 10 days- and it was 32 feet long! Besides the difficulty of driving such a large vehicle it had everything we needed- space for everyone to sleep, a bathroom and shower, and a kitchen, dining room and couch, a TV, and of course, seat belts. We learned how to conserve water and take care of our sewage and electrical needs and many other tricks for traveling in this unique way!

We absolutely loved it! With the help of recommendations from the Pogostin family (thanks, Lisa!) we traveled to Vermont and New Hampshire, basking in the amazing natural beauty of this country. We visited Quechee Gorge, Franconia Notch, The White Mountains, the Mt. Washington Auto Road, and more incredible sites, lakes, trails, and swimming holes. Each evening (and a few mornings) we built a campfire and enjoyed our share of yummy campfire foods. How many s’mores can a person eat in a week? We are so grateful to have had this wonderful bonding experience that we will never forget.
