Six Flags: Great Adventure

After Philly, we took a short hop over to Jackson NJ to check out Six Flags: Great Adventure. Both Mike and I are coaster freaks and we do love checking out the biggest and baddest. When we lived in a sticks & bricks, we would try to visit Cedar Point Park (roller coast mecca) at...

Our First Weigh-In

Above: Kathie standing next to a raw 24,000 lb. rated chassis. Just like humans (and dogs), RVs need to stay a healthy weight. In fact, if your RV is overweight, the consequences can be costly (chassis or axle damage) or deadly (decreased braking ability).

Historic St Augustine

After Space Coast, we decided to head to St. Augustine and Jacksonville. Driving Rover continues to get easier and easier, thank goodness! St. Augustine is a great historic city. Its official title is the “oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States”. Basically it’s the oldest constantly occupied city in the...
