I spent some time today mapping our entire journey over the past 10 months. We traveled 10,000 miles towing the Little RV. We traveled nearly twice as many miles while not towing. Our travels took us from Olympia, WA to Tolland, CT to Jensen Beach, Florida and back to Olympia again.
We spent a lot of time with family we haven't seen much over the years. We enjoyed great weather and weathered several storms, including super-storm Sandy, a Nor'easter, 80 mph winds, hail, tornado warnings, blistering heat, dust storms and more.
We have had incalculable delays and expenses due to the poor workmanship of our 5th wheel.
We have had mishaps including dropping the Little RV on our truck bed, tearing up the roof with low hanging trees, stop signs, and really big rocks.
Will we run that 10,000 mile, 10 month marathon again? I think not. We would like a more leisurely pace and to camp in places other than RV parks. We're in the process of making the changes necessary to camp without hook-ups. We're interested in adding solar power to our bag of tricks.
After Christmas we'll be heading to the Southwest for our next long trip. One thing is certain, we are much better prepared now than we were 10 months ago.
