We’re looking at trailers, from those tiny teardrops that barely accommodate two people and one skillet to modest motor homes that get ten MPG or less.

The draw of travel which we both enjoy is the pea under the mattress but we need to give it a sincere try before raiding — my fingers typed “raining” — the IRA. Weather such as Phoenix expects this weekend with more than an inch of rain gives serious pause to the camping idea.

We just gotta get through this illness phase.
