After a couple of months living in the house, we already got the itch to hit the road again. It’s nice having all of the extra space, but when it is 3° outside and you know you could be enjoying the sun, watching the surf roll in on the beach, and seeing palm trees everywhere, … More Hitting the Road Again!
Sorry, the “pictures to words” ratio is opposite of normal for this post! So…we didn’t quite make it to the one year mark of fulltiming in the RV, but that’s ok! It’s been an awesome experience and we now know what it’s like to do that and not have a stick ‘n’ bricks home base. … More 1 Year Journey…well, almost!
The night before we got our RV back, we took the kids to see the movie “The Star”. We had the entire theater to ourselves, and nice leather recliners! It was a lot of fun! We got our RV back the next day and it’s in top shape now! We were very glad to get … More 1 Year Journey – Indiana to St. Louis to Arkansas
We had an appointment at the Forest River factory in Elkhart, Indiana to have several items fixed. The reason we drove it all the way to Elkhart (722 miles) instead of taking it to a local RV repair place, was that there were a couple of defects that need to be taken care of. A … More 1 Year Journey – St. Louis to Elkhart, Indiana, Chicago
We left the West Coast and drove to Arkansas in just three days. When you first get on the beginning of I 40 on the west side of the USA, you get to see this sign: Pretty New Mexico scenery: We had planned to stay at an RV Park in New Mexico, but when … More 1 Year Journey – California to Arkansas
It took us 10 hours to get from Greenfield to Oceanside! That should normally take between five and seven hours, but LA traffic was so terrible! We happened to hit it right at rush hour and I think it took us 2+ hours to get through the city. More red than green on the traffic … More 1 Year Journey – California – Oceanside, San Diego
We arrived back in Seattle from the cruise to Alaska. Carla took these really cool photos as the ship was pulling into the port before I was even awake. We headed back to our house on wheels. After hooking up the car, we headed south toward California. Mount Shasta was sure pretty. JGW RV … More 1 Year Journey – Washington to California
After leaving Skagway, we spent the following entire day at sea. We woke up to the ship rocking back-and-forth quite a bit! It actually made me nauseous. I would frequently lose my balance in the hotel room or walking down the hallway, especially where there weren’t any windows. It felt like walking through a carnival … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska to Victoria, B.C.
We woke up, docked in Skagway, AK. This was the farthest point north we have ever been. We were closer to Russia than to our families! That’s a weird feeling! We took a quick stroll down the main street through town, which is, of course, loaded with gift shops. It’s neat little town, though. Snow … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska – Skagway
We woke up to our ship docking in Juneau around 5:30am Alaska Time. It was a beautiful morning! Neat wall of fog behind us that looks like a glacier as we were pulling into Juneau: We really liked seeing all the tall and skinny waterfalls. It looks like Hawaii! This is the first time we’ve … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska – Juneau
