I have a Willie Nelson song on repeat in my mind this morning: “On the road again, just can’t wait to get on the road again.” I think the song was triggered by a picture I received from my dad and the fact that he is literally on the road again.
If this is your first time reading our blog I will fill you in. My dad, Jeff, who happens to be the owner of Diers is traveling the country in his trusty RV, The Outlaw. My parents decided to embark on this new adventure a few months ago. They had been toying around with the idea for years, and finally bit the bullet. The Outlaw has become their new home, and my dad officially has a traveling office.
Now that you’re caught up – the picture above is what Diers Exhibit Group looks like on the road. My parents are currently staying in Walker, Minnesota on a crystal clear lake in the middle of fall. If you haven’t traveled to Minnesota in the fall then you are truly missing out. The fall leaves are absolutely breathtaking. Almost breathtaking enough to help get people through those nasty winter months. Let’s just say my parents won’t be staying in Minnesota for very long.
As I hum “On the road again” by Willie Nelson, and my parents cruise into the sunset. I keep thinking back to this picture my dad sent over, and it so conveniently highlights a phrase on our homepage.
