Being foreign residents we RV in summers for 4-5 months in North America and spend winters at home with family and friends.
My wife and I are doing this since 2002, each summer we visit new States/Provinces storing the rig at the end of each trip and picking it up in the following spring, never retracing, next year will be the 10th RV trip….hard to believe.
What started as a long lasting dream many years ago became reality –and there is nothing like living the DREAM.
It did not come easy as it sounds lot of adjusting had be done especially mentally and financially but here we are after 9 fantastic RV summer trips and hopefully many still to come.
If you like to see some of the adventure please go to our website http://danyshula.blogspot.com/ it is always updated as we go.
We ended our 2010 (Bruce Peninsula Ontario/Pennsylvania/Maryland/Virginia/Ontario) trip in Toronto and the rig is stored for the winter just an hour North of the city, so our 2011 trip starts from there.
We just came back from the trip a month ago brought the house and the garden back to normal and I am on the net planning our 2011 summer trip, I must admit that I enjoy this part quite a bit.
We love nature, hiking, scenic drives, special events, music and meeting people, so the plan is around these issues, I Google, ask for brochures, post on the forum and get advice from people that have done these routes.
Usually we pick a central location campground and do day side trips with the truck till we feel that we covered the area before moving on, the end of the trip has to be a winter storage place next to an International A/P.
Our 2011 trip will start in June:
* Toronto area to Sue St Marie either by ferry or by land, Boarder crossing to Michigan.
* Exploring North Michigan.
*West Michigan coast.
*Crossroads RV manufacturer Indiana.
*Lexington area KE.
*Land between the Lakes KE.
*Memphis area TN
*Nashville area TN
*Chattanooga Area TN
*Smoky Mountains area.
*October -end of the trip in Charlotte NC just to continue from there in 2012 to the Carolinas.
I will be thankful for any suggestions regarding the route, MUST SEE places or any other relevant remarks.
Many Happy Trails, May it last and last …….
