It is time

Got the MH out of storage yesterday, to get ready for our trip to the 'lower 48'. It sure felt good to get it out and drive it for a little while. It will get de-winterized on Monday, and then finish getting everything loaded. We leave on the 15th of April and looking forward to the trip. I suspect that we will be passing the 'snow birds' that went south for the winter, coming back up. We also expect to be among the ones coming up for their vacation in Alaska, in May when we come back.
See ya all on the road, have safe travels and enjoy!

Enjoy your trip. I just called our resort in Lake Havasu and they say many rigs have left now....funny- I think this month and May are great times to be there. October is great as well. At any rate, enjoy your time after you brush the cobwebs off.

Definitely time! Got up this morning - made a mission to the grocery store and grabbed fixin's for good dinner. Then came home and filled the water tank, flushed the pink stuff, refilled it with a sanitizing "bleach" ... then drove up to the nearest state park (roughly 30 miles up the road from home). Dumped, the holding tanks once (got rid of the pink stuff...), drained the sanitizer and dumped that, refilled with fresh water then drained and dumped that ... installed new filters in the house system and the refridgerator - and filled a final tank of fresh. The season is officially underway!

With my for the day is done ... I already got in a good nap ... and am now getting ready to cook up my seafood pasta that the wife really likes. Nothing beats a spur of the moment camping trip!!!!!

You should send this in to Motorhome Mag....Bob Livingston likes these kind of stories. Sounds like a perfect day!

Well after 1500+ miles, we made it to Dawson Creek, BC. For the most part the roads are not in too bad of shape. From our place in Palmer heading south, the section between Glenn Allen and Tok had the usual frost heaves, for about 20 miles. Just slow down and take your time to avoid any issues. The section between Beaver Creek, YK and Burwash Landing is up to its normal condition, lots of frost heaves. Again slow down and take your time. We also noticed that the big trucks seemed to be a little more considerate, as they tended to slow down and move over to their right side a little more. The wild life viewing was real good, seeing caribou, Dall Sheep, Stone sheep, Elk, Bison, deer and coyotes. The weather was good with only a little rain as we got close to Dawson Creek. We will be spending most of the day in Dawson Creek, before heading to Washington State.
Have safe travels and have fun!

Wave as you go by! We had to retire from the RV life - too expensive on a limited budget. Still have our 2 Labs, both approaching 12 years old, both rescues.
