We have finally set the date to start our epic adventure. We leave May 10, 2015 and hope we will make the entire planned journey, which should take 5-6 months and 18,000 miles. We are headed to the north-east coast and then to Alaska and the Alcan Highway first! After that, we traverse across the US into northeastern Canada and then down the east coast and to the Great Smoky Mountains. Next we drive down to the Florida Keys and then back through the Midwest and home. Yes, I admit is it very ambitious for new RVers, but hey, what the heck? If you don’t choose to live life to the fullest you miss out. What is the worst that can happen? We change the itinerary or we come home early. So, then we sell it or start out again. (Depending on how we fared and if we are still talking to each other. We do have boxing gloves courtesy of our friends,Vickie and Thayne.)
The RV is in the service department again for all those minor cosmetic repairs and to have some after-market stuff put on. One is a stabilizer and the other some type of stabilizer tow bar. Okay, I might have to check with my husband to let you all know what they are really called.
We will be making a trial trip to Zion this month, with the Sun City Anthem RV Club. The trip should show us if everything is in good shape before we leave on the big trip. If not, then we will have a week or so to fix or adjust. It is also a trial for our two loved, happy, but yappy Pomeranians to see how they do.
Photos from Zion to come after the trip!
I think you will be heading to the north-west coast first?
Yes, we are visiting an old school friend in Fresno, then my brother in Sacramento, then heading to the Redwood Forrest and then to Vancouver before we head to Alaska.
Sam & Jan are thrilled to share in your journey through this blog. We have often wondered what it would be like to take such an adventuresome journey. The details are so very interesting, already! We wish for you both, to have an amazing, fun & safe trip of a lifetime, for real! xxxoooooo

Yes, it is a great undertaking, but the worst that can happen is we come home early! I think it will be a real adventure.
Do not fear……..it will be awesome!!! We hope that you will want to return to this “boring” stable lifestyle, afterward!
