Our RV has been let out of jail. Jail being the heavy duty Ford repair shop to get the wheel bearings replaced. What? you say if you have been following this blog…you haven’t been anywhere yet. Yes, that is true. So I hope when we do head out there won’t be any mechanical problems. We are still waiting for the parts to arrive from Tiffin for the cosmetic repairs covered under warranty.
I’d like to say we are heading out soon, but we are not heading out until April, when we head all the way out to Primm Nevada (about 20 miles away from us) for a How to Drive RV Boot Camp. The RV club in our association is sponsoring it. I have to learn how to drive the rig before we head out on our across the country trip in the spring. This is preparation, just in case something happens to our primary driver…my husband – like he gets too tired to drive, or decides I have done enough back seat driving and deserve to have a turn at it.
Plans are still ongoing regarding the trip and the routes we will be taking. The fist caravan to Alaska we signed up for with Adventure Treks is not going now, so we are looking for another one to join that fits into our schedule. I have contacted Gilbert (Spike is what he says to call him) at Alaskan Discovery RV Tours Ltd. and we are on the waiting list to join their caravan. Oh the woes of waiting to hear.
The ‘How to Drive RV Boot Camp’ sounds like a great idea! The trip is coming up fast. It will be here before you know it. 🙂
Yes, Kristin. It seemed like we had months and now it is just weeks away. No good news from the new caravan yet, so we may have to make the Alcan highway trip to Fairbanks alone. There will be lots of other RVs along the way to chat with though, and we will have the freedom to travel when and where we want!
