A Relaxing, Waterfront, Ho-hum Week

  Once the rest of our 6-month repairs were completed on Rover, we made our way to Carrabelle, FL. Our route west put Tallahassee as our next likely destination, but after some research we decided we’d prefer something a little quieter and away from big cities. Carrabelle is about 45 minutes south of Tallahasse, right on...

It’s better (and worse) than I thought

We’ve been full-timing in Rover for six months now. I might as well get it out of the way now—holy crap, it’s been half a year already?!? Rover feels like a home to us, we can go pretty much anywhere (weather permitting), the dogs have adjusted well, and we get to visit places we haven’t...

Six Months Down, So What’s Next?

In the six months since moving into Rover, we’ve traveled from Tampa Florida to Peterborough New Hampshire and back. We’ve challenged the narrow, bumpy, and expensive route onto Long Island NY, the steep and winding local highways through the Vermont mountains, and countless of miles of US Interstates. Our GPS has faithfully kept track of every mile....

A Change of Pace

Our last two weeks have been a little different than usual. Since we were back in Florida we decided to have our Tampa RV dealer, Lazydays, repair a bunch of little issues that have cropped up during our first six months. Rover has a one-year warranty so we’re about halfway through it. Fortunately we’ve had no...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter

After Savannah it was time to head to Universal Orlando (yay!). The last time we were there, they were still constructing the new Harry Potter section, so we only caught a glimpse of it from behind fences. We also timed this visit to meet up with Gray and Cindy again during their van-based travels through...

Myrtle Beach by way of Augusta

Myrtle Beach

After Dragoncon we spent a week and a half in Augusta Georgia. It wasn’t on our list of places to visit, but it was a good halfway point (give or take) on our way to Myrtle Beach, which we were headed to for our first RV Rally. I’m both embarrassed and pleased to report that...

Dragoncon 2014

Last week was a whirlwind of activity as we attended our second Dragoncon. For those not in the know, Dragoncon is an enormous science fiction/fantasy convention held annually in Atlanta. It’s similar to the more famous Comic-Con but rather than a corporate-sponsored event it’s a 100% volunteer-driven convention. Estimates for 2014 attendance are in the 60,000...

Northeastern Friends and Family

I think we finally out-ran summer! After picking up Rover in Florida at the end of April, we’ve been slowly making our way North, but not fast enough to escape some brutal heat and humidity. By the time we made it to New Jersey it was already July and summer was in full swing with days...

No really, how much is the toll?

Since the only reason we went to Jackson NJ was to visit Six Flags, we stayed for just three nights and headed out on Friday morning to try our hand at driving Rover onto Long Island NY. Since many of New York’s bridges are not tall enough for trucks, Mike had to be absolutely positive our...
