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!
