Dave and Carrie’s Excellent Adventure

I’ve talked about it on Facebook and emailed friends and family. I’ve tweeted and Instagrammed. Now I’m blogging.

Stud Muffin and I are embarking on an endeavor. Part job, part travel opportunity, part adventure, part drug educators.

We’re now part of a group called Code 3 Association.  They build relationships between “Cops & Citizens.” They have a drug education trailer called RALI Cares, that they take to community events. The trailer is outfitted to look like a teenager’s bedroom. They give tours and educate parents and grandparents about where teens might hide drugs. They were looking for a retired law enforcement officer (and spouse) to drive a second trailer. IMG_2176

Enter the Padgetts!

We found house-sitters, hired a lawn service, refilled our prescriptions (we’re old, we take meds), said goodbye to our grandchildren, children, and parents, and packed our suitcases.

We arrived yesterday in Indianapolis and start training today how to pull the 32′ trailer behind the truck and how to give the tours. 

Here’s a link to an article about the trailer that was in a New Hampshire paper.

We’re looking forward to experiencing different weather, different food, meeting people, and having new adventures together. And maybe even learning new things and teaching others new things. Maybe impacting lives for good.

It’s been a crazy few weeks. Just over a month ago we first heard about this opportunity and here we are!

I’ll keep tweeting, Facebooking, Instagramming, and blogging. I hope you keep reading!
