First Tour of the United States of America Completed – We Made It Through Unscathed – We Feel Blessed and Grateful to the Lord for Success – What Was It Like – AWESOME –

a-post-today-1We traveled 6,885 miles and camped at 35 RV parks over a period of six months. We visited family in Texas, Florida, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, and Michigan. Coming or going we passed through the additional states of Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Colorado. There remains a huge portion of this great land that we have not yet seen.

We had a blast visiting our families, Steve’s and mine. We enjoyed the entire trip, but having fun with family we hadn’t seen for a long time cannot compare with anything else we did. Now we think every trip we make may involve family.

We are camping in Arizona for the winter the months. We have friends here, and we are glad to see them again. I picked the photo above because it represents our (RV) home. Wherever we went we had our home and whatever part of the above extension of it we chose to erect while we were there. Some places we camped overnight and continued driving the next day. Other places we stayed longer. Three times we spent an entire month, in Florida, Pennsylvania, and New Mexico.

Now that we are here in Arizona, we do what we have done during the six months we were traveling. That is, we both cook and clean. Steve maintains the coach utility system that makes this place a real home with inside plumbing, hot water on demand, etc. Life in our motorhome is much like life in the stick-and-brick home we left, minus the landscape duties. Often we go out to eat, sometimes we visit a church, Often we shop for supplies, and occasionally we go to movies. We see the local sights. We like to explore. We see America, plain old beautiful America.

  1. So glad you had a good trip! I’ve enjoyed following along, even though I haven’t always commented. (Things get so busy around here at times!) Blessings to you in your winter camp!

    • Thank you, Jennifer. We are enjoying our winter camp. When we stayed one month in three places, I have to say that the time flipped by so fast it seemed we just got there when it was time to leave. Staying a few months longer in one place will be a good thing. Blessings of good health and prosperity to you…

    What a wonderful experience–and opportunity to see so much of our nation. Seeing family is the icing on the cake!

  3. Yes, seeing family and having fun with them was wonderful. We can’t wait to do it all again. We talk about next year, but we haven’t made a plan yet.
