My DH and I just retired and plan to travel the USA leaving May 15,2012. My husbands boss gave him a great retirement gift. A ford f350 4x4 Diesel Pick up fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. Then we Went out and bought a 2009 34' Cougar by Keystone 5th wheel with 3 slides. It was used and used very little, got a great deal on it $23,500.00. Now we are getting her loaded up and ready to go. We are so new to this I wonder if I will forget all kinds of stuff. Any Advise from you old timer RVer's is appreciated for sure. I am trying to map out a way so we do not back track at all. We will start off in Tempe Arizona where are home is and head out to Las Vegas 1st heading over to the California coast on up to the Redwoods and mostly national parks. More advise if anyone has it for this part also. We have not decided if we want to pay for satalite for our 8mo. trip across the USA. Been looking into it but my husband does not want to deal with sitting the dish up each time, he says it is a pain, more advise need.
we will only be doing the outer part of the united states. The west coast, North top ,East as far as Erie,Pen. ,South and then back home. 8mo. we have set aside for this trip. Do you guys think we can do that?
I plan on have my computer so we will be able to look stuff up. I plan to buy the 4g Verizon wireless. We also have the Kindle Fire which hook up for quick access to the internet.
We bought the Honda parallel generators 2000i new, super quiet they are.
It just seems like I maybe over stressing on bringing everything ecluding the kitchen sink.
Oh did I say we are going on a Cruise to Alaska while on our trip, leaving out of Seattle, Wa. June 26th, I did find a great RV park up there to park our rig while on the Cruise. Lake Pleasent RV park they only charge $3.00 for storage while we are gone and we are plugged in to electric the entire time. That was a great find. It also looks beautiful so we decided to hang out for a few days before and after our Cruise. Want to go into Seattle and look around.
Well any ADVISE you guys on this forum that could help a rookie like me out to prepare for this trip will be greatly Appreciated.
Glad to be apart of this Forum. Thanks everyone.
