It’s only been 10 days?!? (Part 4)

Above: Florida’s Lovebugs are truly horrific only a half-hour into our drive. Part four, the final battle. After the usual dog walks, Sunday morning was spent getting Rover ready for travel. We have a checklist (still under construction) to make sure no steps are missed. We’ve read horror stores (and seen photos and videos) of...

It’s only been 10 days?!? (Part 3)

Above: Rover perfectly backed into our first campground spot. What a team! At this point in our story (Friday), the protagonists are ready to move the Mothership (aka Rover) to his first campground. Mike figuratively flexes his muscles, takes a really deep breath and drives Rover out of the dealership and down the street about...

It’s only been 10 days?!? (Part 2)

Above: Walking the dogs through the used luxury RV lot. We knew this week would be busy and we didn’t want the dogs underfoot during the entire process.

We’ve Chosen A Motorhome!

Choosing a motorhome turned out to be an exhausting but very educational experience. Unlike car shopping, we found reliable information hard to come by while RV shopping. There are many makes, models, and options, and we spent about three months researching just to understand how to shop for an RV. After visiting dealers and the...

Researching RVs

above: class C motorhome When we started shopping for RVs, we knew there would be a lot to learn. We weren’t prepared for quite how much though! It really makes me wonder how we made smart decisions before we had all the information in the world at our fingertips through the Internet. We quickly learned...
