After the busy Christmas and New Years time of year, we usually get the itch to escape to somewhere warm. And each year it seems that January is full of doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and other commitments. By the time February gets here, we are very ready to load up the RV and go almost … More Winter Escape to the Gulf – 2020
Day 32 We ate at Tim Horton’s (yet again), and then drove from the hotel in Moncton, New Brunswick￼ the rest of the way back to the RV in Maine. It was a pretty drive! The fall colors are really vibrant here! ￼You can tell there are more French-speaking people in New Brunswick than in … More Journey to Nova Scotia…and Disney World – Part 5
Day 28 We headed to Nova Scotia today! The dogs woke up at 4:30am (after we got to sleep around midnight), so we just stayed up and finished getting ready. All loaded up!! We dropped the dogs off at Acadia Woods Kennel at 7am. We then started the 3.5 hour drive north to Saint John, … More Journey to Nova Scotia…and Disney World – Part 4
Day 23 ￼We made it!! We drove the rest of the way to Narrow’s Too RV Park in Trenton, Maine, which is about 20 minutes from Bar Harbor. We are glad to be staying in one place for a few weeks, aside from driving the Jeep to Nova Scotia for 4 nights. Driving through Boston … More Journey to Nova Scotia…and Disney World- Part 3
Day 18 We left Disney World and headed north! It felt good to be heading to something new. There were so many lizards all over the Fort Wilderness campground (or, “wizards”, as Tripp used to call them). This guy rode on my hitch about a mile to the car hookup area. Another lovebug massacre happened … More Journey to Nova Scotia…and Disney World – Part 2
If the kids were naming this blog entry, they would have titled it “Journey to Disney World…and Nova Scotia”. Given how many times we’ve done Disney (we were just saying how it would be neat to know just how many times we’ve walked into the Disney parks), the trip up the east coast into New … More Journey to Nova Scotia…and Disney World – Part 1
We had to take our RV to Indiana for a major repair, so we figured we would make a larger trip out of it and see some new states / attractions while we’re up that way. I almost didn’t post a blog entry for this trip, since only the trip from Arkansas to Indiana was … More Trip of Disasters: St. Louis, Indiana, Lake Erie, Niagara Falls, D.C.
We recently traded in our Jeep Grand Cherokee and bought a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JKU) Rubicon as our new toad. We did this so we could start doing some off-roading and tent camping while in remote areas. I had spent the last couple of years building up a 2010 Toyota 4Runner, but recently realized … More New Toad! 2016 Jeep Rubicon
Del Boca Vista, here we come!! We really wanted to head to warmer temps like we usually do around this time of year, and Disney World was sounding like a fun idea. However, the RV parks within 45 min of Disney were pretty booked up! Luckily, a site came open at a KOA in Davenport. … More Florida, Baby! – Winter 2019
I never thought I would be the type to buy a motorhome. Years later, guess what…we are on our third RV! And now we are doing something else I never thought we’d do….we bought a dog! Even crazier, the puppy is located 1274 miles away…and we’re going to drive the RV to go get her! … More Salt Lake City Puppy Run
Day 1 This is turning out to be the “Almost” RV trip! As in, we almost went some places, and almost had some disasters! We had decided at the last minute to go to northern Minnesota near Lake Superior, and I was getting excited to kayak in some of the 10,000 lakes! So we parked … More Summer 2018 – St. Louis
Day 13 Back in Orlando! We were here for several weeks just 7 months ago when we were establishing our Florida residency in April, 2017, and stayed until June sometime. Anyway, the kids (and us!) are excited about going to Disney World! We stayed at our favorite RV park in Kississimme (KOA) for one night … More Gulf Coast Winter 2018 – Orlando, FL
Day 8 And, back into Florida we go! We were here seven months ago. Below is where we crossed into the state from Alabama on Hwy 98. We drove 2 hours over to Destin. On our way there, we got to see a new bridge being built. It was neat to hear them pounding in … More Gulf Coast Winter 2018 – Destin, FL
It felt good to get the RV out of storage (although, it’s only been there a month!). We parked it at the Creeks Golf and RV Resort in Cave Springs just down the road from our house so that we could get it warmed up, finish loading up everything, etc. The high was 22° today, … More Gulf Coast Winter 2018 – Arkansas to Orange Beach, AL
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
