2-2-2 A Loose Rule for Traveling in an RV

This is the last day of an RV “Rally” at the Elkhart 4H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana.  Today is day four. We will be pulling out in the morning and driving all of 35 miles to a local winery who allows RVs to stay overnight. The general rule for travel is 2-2-2. That means: drive no more than 200 miles, get into your camp before 2PM and stay 2 days. We are pretty good at the first two, but the staying two days is hard if you are bored! Sometimes you want to stay longer when commitments or cost dictate otherwise. We are finding this life to be different than boating, and enjoyable. It is much, much easier in many ways with a corresponding increase in cost.  We are able to cover a lot more ground, and it is easy enough to drop off the path to explore if desired […]

On the move again – but faster!

Here we go again. Not only is the golf tournament completed (very successfully thanks to volunteers, sponsors, donors and players) but so is our 6 year relationship with paws4vets and paws4people. We have separated due to ‘irreconcilable differences’. It was a good run and we are proud to have played a major role in bringing in close to one million dollars in funding during that time. They have a great mission and we wish them the best. So Saturday after the event we hit the road on a new adventure in our 5th wheel. We have lots of ideas and maybes, but really we are just headed westward. Slowly. Faster than the boat’s 7 mph as we travel more like 60mph, but instead of pulling anchor up at dawn and moving 10 or more hours to get 70 miles in, we unplug from water and electric, roll up the awning, […]

Who wants to go traveling in style?

As usual there is lots going on around here. If you have been following the storyline, the plan was to fix up the Land Yacht so we had a place to live for a few months while we organized the 2nd Annual Step Up to the Tee for Veterans golfing fundraiser in Beaufort SC. (BTW we still need players, donors and sponsors to make this work! Please check out http://paws4vets.org/golf) The next step in the plan was to sell Yume and find a truck and 5th wheel RV to travel westward after the fundraiser. Well… We found a truck on Craigslist in Sarasota and picked it up this week. While down there we put a deposit on a 5th wheel as well. It is a 32ft 2007 Newmar Cypress. (See image above.) So now we have a vehicle for the first time since we left the horse farm three and […]
