Our family home for a week

Minnie In a little over a week we will be heading on a road trip to New Jersey and New Hampshire. This is the vehicle we've rented for the trip - a 24-foot "Minnie" Winnebago. I'm looking forward to the adventure! In my travels (around most of the US, Europe and Australia) I've always packed a little heavily but often stayed the night under somewhat rougher conditions in a tent, hostels, or my old truck. We're still trying to figure out where our two girls will sleep, but it probably will involve bringing the two folding cribs so they can't get into too much mischief. FloorplanI'm still hoping for some good recommendations from my friend Ellie who just retired into an RV full time with her husband last year! I know I won't get in much training time on the road, so I'm trying to get a little ahead in my training this week, if that's possible. I also have to work on not getting an inferiority complex about Tri-geek's rig for Wildflower....

Wow! Fantastic! Just what the doctor ordered, a little R&R in style.

Sounds like a fun rip especially to the Garden State....you can sing the song "On the Way to Cape May" as you drive down the road.

Cool! I love the idea of getting a camper and heading out. One of these days! We have family in Colorado, so that would be a fun trip!

Boy, that looks like fun. You'll sure enjoy traveling in that RV. Something to look forward to!

Must be nice, think of me will you while I sleep in the horse trailer this weekend with No heat and it's only 26 degrees F. this morning.
You have a great time now!

My mom used to own an RV. She was driving one day when she looked in her left rear-view mirror and saw a car just like hers coming up on her left. She watched in horror as the car veered left into the median, slowed and stopped. Then she realized IT WAS HER CAR, having come loose from the hitch. No harm done and off they went with said car re-attached.

Have a great time and, if you take your car, make sure you check the hitch!

You thought I would have a personal chauffeur? ;-)
