The Great Migration, or... birdwatching!

We've been on the road cross-country for 7 days now and I'm currently heading up the East Coast corridor. Once again, it simply amazes us at the sheer volume of snowbirds on the road especially during this week.

It's quite a tribute to a particular life style for so many of us. And, what a truly significant financial impact for so many businesses such as fuel, food, overnight fees to mention but a few. Campgrounds and RV Parks along the core routes are either at or near capacity and good for them. The park I stopped at tonight just off I-81 had a steady line up of RV's checking in like clockwork around 4 to 5pm. Glad I called ahead for a reservation.

We've seen some absolutely wonderful sights along the way, and we also witnessed some sincerely crazy driving, too. Fortunately we didn't see any accidents in over 5,000 miles.

Anyway, and speaking just for us, we're really anxious to get home after 14 weeks away. Like they say... there's no place like home. So, cheers to our fellow migrating "birds" and safe travels!

We ran across snowbirds on the Natchez Trace at Jeff Busby SP. Two families of French Canadians that had spent the winter in Brownsville, TX. Nice folks. They said it would take them 6 days to get back to northern Quebec.
Another guy at another SP had a sad story about his neighbor finding his house broken into and emptied. He was from Buffalo.
Works great for some and not so good for others.
