Our school district -suburban Chicago- has spring break this week but some city schools are later. So far smooth sailing!

So far just a tiny hiccup during our trip. Found a small leak in the coolant. Easy fix and back on the road. Just one of many small, but fun, little joys of owning a well -loved coach! We did make it to Florida! 18 hours of great scenery. Thanks for the well wishes!

Spring Break Shakedown

Glad that you made it relatively trouble free to Florida. Hope you have good weather and a safe trip home to Chicago. We are preparing to leave From central Indiana on our first shakedown trip in our new to us Sea Breeze as well. We leave on the 25th for the south Florida gulf coast. We have been preparing like mad. I have "to do" things for the next 2 evenings as well but we will be ready. We have done a couple of short (300-400 mile) trips but this will be her first "REAL" outing. Wish us luck as well.
