  1. Hi folks, great to hear from you! We departed Maine a few days ago and are currently in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Left much later this year in order to take care of some personal obligations and enjoy some holiday social functions. Not sure of our plans but will unlikely make it much further west than the Texas Gulf Coast. Hope you had a great Christmas and are enjoying a Happy New Year!

    • Hello!!
      On the road again!! Willy
      You should have stayed here in Maine, so warm, no snow either!! LOL
      They do predict a few inches Tuesday and Wednesday, but it sure has been soft thus far!
      All the smelt colonies are awaiting some real cold temps.
      will look forward to future updates.
      Stay safe and warm! Enjoyed all the updated figures on your years of travel. Do the park rental daily cost reflect your military discounts and for fuel?


      • Hey folks…yep, we left under cover of darkness last Friday and are currently in Northern Tennessee heading south. The trip stats for fuel and campsite fees do reflect all discounts and adjustments…yea, it isn’t cheap to meander about the country for six months! Take care!!
