Traveling this weekend

Friday I set out on the first long road trip from Florida to Wisconsin. A few observations; the right lane of interstates have very rough pavement, and bridges going on and coming off can cause quite a bump. There were times I thought I would lose the trailer!

1417 miles and I did not see one other Air Stream on the road or parked anywhere! I felt like the "ugly" duckling n the rest areas as I was the only aluminum bullet in the area. Lots of new plastic units, but I was holding down the "classic" class.

Now parked on my son's lawn and about to roast marshmallows with my grans kids. Life is good!

I agree roads edges rough. We just took four grandkids camping, it was wonderful. Now we head to Chicago for a week to work and camp. Enjoy kids.

Happy 4th!

Have a wonderful time with your son and grandkids! Sparklers tomorrow!

It's funny, the comments overheard at rest stops---Oh! I like that, I didn't know they still made those, etc., in the World of plastic and vinyl.

I try staying in the center lane unless it's a two lane Interstate. In areas where 18 wheelers are prohibited from the left lane I keep right as the middle is their passing lane. For us RVers driving 65 mph the right lane can cause some white knuckling with on ramp merging traffic, that's why I prefer the center lane. Bumpy roads are just a part of towing adjust if you have to or just live with the situation.

I agree Joe on the merging with the right lane, I also stay in the middle when I can. All is well, I'm parked, it's level, and sleeping with Wisconsin 60's temps at night is wonderful after Florida heat. Happy Fourth to all!
