Home!

Well after 3 weeks of travel and adventures we are finally home. Slept for 12 hours after falling asleep on the couch. What an amazing journey! Next trip will be without another couple though. We saw some amazing parks and landmarks and are in overload. From rain and even a blizzard to start to heat. Can't wait until next trip!

We did a one week trip with two other couples who had RVs. Won't do that again either.

We did a tour with some FMCA folks the first year we had a motorhome(rental). Great bunch of people. Other than a few highlights. It was pretty much 1700 miles of 4-lanes and interstates, Cracker Barrels, rest areas and noisy campgrounds. Not our preferred style of travel.

The last 2 trips were with another couple. It worked out well but sometimes it can limit time at an attraction or take you to places where you would rather see someplace else. All worked out well but alone time can be fun also.

You are kidding, right. We too avoid those kind of situations but would rather camp in state parks, National parks, City parks and our favorite is COE parks (in a beautiful one right now in Northern Mississippi).

We do all we can to avoid long stretches of interstates, RV "resorts", and Cracker barrels.

Nothing better than a great BBQ, with a campfire over looking sunset at a beautiful lake...like we did last night!
