2/14 - We left Tucson headed for Florida on Friday morning; hit a campground in Pecos, TX Friday night; the Cracker Barrel in Lafayette, LA Saturday night; in a campground Countryside RV Park) an hour north of Tampa, FL at 9:30 PM Sunday night! We sure love that Volvo! It never missed a beat and the computer (which is usually a bit optimistic) shows 8.8 MPG running 70 MPH all the way.
We caught a glimpse of the start of the Mardi Gras parade going through Mobile, AL this AM. Fortunately had good weather all the way, did not even get the truck dirty!
We will be at Dennis' mothers bedside sometime Monday morning. Hoping to find a campground close to where she is tomorrow.
We are both retired and embarking on what we hope will be many years of extended traveling.
Our home away from home consists of a 1999 Volvo 610 with a custom deck that carries our 2011 smart fortwo (replacing the 2005 smart that sacrificed itself in the name of driver protection).
Our fifth wheel is a 2005 Newmar Mountain Aire, 37 feet long with three slides. All together we are 60 feet long and weigh just over 37,000 lbs!
