Spadea brings laundry on vacation to San Diego
As I prepare to leave for California, instead of booking a hotel and having to deal with the potential of ridiculous COVID protocols, we have booked an AirBNB. My wife and daughter have been traveling this way for years – it’s cheaper for the most part, you get more amenities, and it’s a lot more private.
After going through several hosts who rejected me because of the motorhome, I found a great house near my son’s school and not too far from the beach. I think they got a bad impression of my truck – it’s not a 40ft bus, just an enlarged small van that’s just over 20ft long.
OK, that said, the key for me on this trip is the ability to do laundry. As you know, my mother-in-law moved in with us after Jodi’s father passed away last year. We are in the process of building a new space for him and that made us lose the laundry room for a month and a half. Fortunately, we have some great friends, Amy and Jacqueline at the top of the list, who have stepped up to help us.
The big deal is yoga … everyday, towels and outfits. So my plan is to take a lot of extra laundry – including linens – out of the RV and do the rest of the laundry in California. It really speaks of the convenience of renting a house instead of staying in a hotel.
Laundry aside, our travel plans have changed dramatically since the lockdown nonsense. Air travel is a mess and I understand that many hotels, given the fear and understaffing, do not clean the rooms every day. Why stay in a hotel if you don’t get hotel service?
So for me, anywhere in the United States, I will drive and stay in a rental house. And you? Are you with me or are you striving to go back to the old normality of flights and hotels? Let me know via the free NJ 101.5 app – subscribe to the Bill Spadea channel and contact me on the chat feature!
