Horses, chickens, and cows, oh my!

Lancaster County PA, where the cows and chickens truly are free-range, almost everyone has livestock and a garden (with corn) in their yard, and horse poop is a common sight on the road. We made it to Amish Country in PA and stayed in a little town called Intercourse (on the way there, we passed...

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...

Hudson River Rail Trail

We just spent a week in Red Hook New York and had our first opportunity to break out our bicycles (newly retrieved from storage while passing through Maryland) and go for a ride. Not too far from Red Hook is the Walkway Over The Hudson, a 212-foot high railroad bridge built in 1888 and converted to...

In fact, if your RV is overweight, the consequences can be costly (chassis or axle damage) or deadly (decreased braking ability). Rover’s front axle is rated to carry a maximum of 9,000 lbs, his rear...

Replacing our kitchen faucet

Overall I’m very happy with Rover and all his amenities. We’ve been in our coach for a little over 2 months now and we’ve adjusted very well to living in an RV; however the kitchen faucet continued to drive me bonkers! The factory faucet is something out of the 80s, it’s short, close to the...

Just a pit stop, then home

We wanted to get back to the DC area within six week of purchasing Rover so we could pick up the rest of our things. Since we took a side trip back to Tampa (to fix a few things) and then to the Space Coast, we were running a little behind. We decided to make...
