There is something about taking off for another year of adventure that just feels right. Granted we have only been in Dallas for one month and 10 days of that was spent in Spain, it still feels like we are starting fresh again. We spent time with our families, let go a little more of our old lives and belongings, spent countless hours in front of computers backing up and preparing for the future. As we said our goodbyes and headed out of Dallas we almost immediately started feeling that strange adjustment in attitude with a new perspective in view. It still amazes me how a trip never seems real until the moment it begins. So here it is, our beginning to year 3 on the road again. Now, if we could have only started a little earlier than 8pm… Yes, we got a late start but it was a start none the less. We drove through to Snyder, TX and called the Rip Griffin Travel Center home for the night amongst at least a dozen trucks. There is nothing like the smell of exhaust and the sound of air brakes at a small town truck stop to start the trip off right. We slept like babies.
Buying an RV is a long process and a big investment which is why you want to get it right the first time around. Now, how to do that… We are 30 years old and we are getting ready to purchase our 4th RV, so needless to say, we know the process better than we would like to admit. Lucky you, we are going to share all of our hard earned, money pit, time consuming, mistake ridden knowledge on how to find the right RV for you. Or as my grandmother liked to say, “Let me give you some pearls”. First things first, let’s figure out what type or class of RV you want and how big. There’re sooo many different types out there; the easiest way to narrow it down is by asking some questions:
Update: We decided to keep Windy for the remainder of our RV travel's. We begged her to take us back and she did! As most of you know our Windy is for sale and we are looking for a new home on wheels! This will be our 4th RV purchase and needless to say, we know the drill!
There’s a lot we were told about the Pennsylvania Dutch Country but not one person told us about the beer culture! With a micro brew in every direction, and each brewery as good, or at least as interesting as the next. The beer (especially the Tap Room) was some of the best beer we have had to date! But now that we've shared a virtual cold one, let’s talk about the hype of Dutch Country. Now....we realize that some of you are all about the kitsch and there is a strong possibility you may be offended by our next statement, so you may want to skip this one.
