One year ago today we set out on this crazy adventure. We were wide eyed, wet behind the ears RV greenhorns. Ha! (Don't tell anyone but sometimes we still are.)
first question most people ask us is what was our favorite place visited along the way. I don't have a favorite and so many different
places come to mind when I try to answer that question. Charleston, the tiny tunnel we drove the truck through... so many.
other day I asked Rob if he had it to do over again, would he? His
answer was yes. I would too. Even if we knew about all of the problems
we would encounter along the way the good times outweighed the bad by a
I also asked him what he would do differently. He said he wouldn't buy a DRV Tradition. Ditto!
We agree that we would buy a Class A RV rather than a 5th wheel because
we think it would work better with his physical limitations.... and
because it would be easier to back into a campsite. ;-)
other big thing I wouldn't do is travel 10,000 miles in 10 months.
It's just way too much. We are much more suited to a leisurely pace.
I'd love to spend more time in one place and I really want to boondock.
We've got some work to do before we can make that happen.
One of the most highly recommended RV solar experts has a business right near here in Springfield. We're planning to go and visit this week and see what we need in order to meet our power needs. We have spent up to $1000 a month paying for campsites so I feel certain we can recapture the cost in site rental savings fairly quickly.
We have started planning our next adventure starting in January. This time we're heading south to California, Arizona, New Mexico and who knows where else we'll end up. Let year 2 begin!
