Day 2 – Visiting Nashville, Tennessee – Our Great North American RV Tour

Sunday, November 5 – Day 68 After the long drive, the previous day and a late night at the Grand Ole Opry a day of rest was in order.

He recommended the Mexican restaurant for dinner mainly because they allow a brown bag of spirits. He also mentioned a Sunday Read more [...]

Day 2 – Visiting Washington DC & Virgina

Tuesday, October 24 – Day 56 It rained overnight but cleared as we made our way to the train and our second day in Washington, DC.

Once inside the huge building we were escorted down a long Read more [...]

Visiting Philadelphia – Our North American RV Tour

Friday, October 20 – Day 52 We woke to a warm and humid sunny morning with heavy dew, like a rainstorm had passed overnight. The east coast is much more humid than the west coast, high humidity sucks.

Ralph, Henry and I have some RV maintenance to take care of on the rigs and the ladies are always good with a day to read, craft or quilt and I Read more [...]

Atlantic City, New Jersey – Our North American RV Tour

Tuesday, October 17 – Day 50 Sunny and cooler this morning.  Falling autumn leaves covered our rigs we needed to climb onto the trailer slides to clean them off before departure. Closing a dirty slide pushes debris under the rubber flaps. Traveling through bright morning sunshine makes any trip more enjoyable. Especially this morning with the east coast autumn leaves in the middle of their vivid color show. Our plan for the day’s drive was a success, our route took us through relatively Read more [...]
