Today our wait is over.
We bought our first motorhome, a 2008 Gulf Stream Vista Mini Cruiser, after decades of camping in tents, pop-ups and even rental cabins if you can call that camping. Initially we fully intended to continue going out only on weekends and occasionally to do the short trips, no more than a couple of weeks at a time. Everything changed after our first "season" actually "RV'ing".
During our first season we did break away every weekend we could and stretched our distance from home as far as travel time allowed and each time we seemed to always come up just a little short. What we found was there is a heck of a lot of U.S.A. in the U.S.A. and we wanted to see it more in-depth. Not just the drive-by tourist attractions for us but real get to know the area and the people.
Really great people, some of whom have already become friends. During our first season these new friends taught us how to slow down and in a few cases saved us from some pretty embarrassing situations (yes, a black tank was involved).
This journal chronicles our travels, challenges and those little tidbits learned along the way. Come join us.
