Time To Be Movin’ Along
By the numbers:
We did four separate hook-ups , our first boondock, our fourth hurricane … zero fights.
We spent at least one night in four different campsites (counting Carroll’s, but not counting the boondock), plus one hotel.
We met one AMAZING family, reconnected with half of a wonderful couple we met on our first long trip, and spent an entire day with our good MAGIC friend.
Mike has kindly provided our trip specs in both metric and imperial. 98 hours in the car over the course of 6 weeks.

Current time 4:10. Can someone just tell me to go to bed already.
Hello Michigan. Good-bye fillings.
Good thing I’m going to the dentist on Tuesday anyway.
I may hold off on the turkey until Tuesday. Ski is away on a camping trip until Monday night. Still thinking.Hopefully you're still sleeping well past noon, have decided cooking a turkey today can wait until tomorrow and let the boys unload everything
I didn't even know such a bird existedI may hold off on the turkey until Tuesday. Ski is away on a camping trip until Monday night. Still thinking.
It’s a frozen pre-stuffed Butterball, so no thawing is required. Decide which day you want it, pop it into the oven frozen, and voila 6-7 hours later, there’s your meat and stuffing (we call it dressing) perfectly done.
So idiot proof, even JenniferS can do it. Even a sleep deprived JenniferS should it be tomorrow.
I wrote a small book (Family memorandum, unpublished) about all the travels that I could remember from age 10 to almost current a few years back. I tried to make it humorous but the first chapters were based on RV travel from Maine to Florida and other assorted close by trips with my parents. Those were a long string of disasters, but I tried to find the humor in that while making it more of a 'you will never get me to do RV travel again, even at gunpoint'. We never ran into any Hurricanes, but every other way a vacation could be ruined happened at one time or the other. I know that my parents loved RVing in spite of all that, but I vowed to never, ever even think about it again. They did it to save money on travel. My philosophy was more the 'if I can't afford to stay in hotels or eat in restaurants then I can't afford to go' standard. Of course, RV travel in the early 60's was no where near the luxurious set up that @JenniferS was experiencing. Back then it was just one step above being a tent in the woods.Jennifer, as others have mentioned -- we don't want your TR to come to an end. This one was particularly fun and very different. I never knew anyone who did the RV / camper, (whatever the correct term is), type of vacation. So, it was a learning experience for me, to see how it all went together.
Now, go to sleep!!
I am amazed and impressed at the zero fights. I've occasionally thought about what it would be like to travel via RV, but know it's not for us. Our idea of camping is a hotel without a complimentary breakfast buffet. Despite being happily married for many decades, I also guarantee we'd be divorced at the end of an RV trip and I'd be in therapy shortly after. There are certain things we agree we are not meant to do together - home improvement projects and RV traveling.We did four separate hook-ups , our first boondock, our fourth hurricane … zero fights.
