Would be great to rendezvous with some Airstream clubs/trips along the way.
First off, you’re going to have a blast! Second, don’t stick to an agenda... a general idea of the state and maybe attractions perhaps but leave the specifics to what fires you up at the time. Anotherwords, how you feel in the Smokey Mountains may be different than time spent gazing out at the Caribbean from the coast... Also, from keeping an eye on the forums, you’ll for sure find a rally or two to join up with and you never know what places you’ll learn about from those there that may send you off to a new location for a few days. Or weeks...
We sold our house in Austin, TX & everything in it several years ago and took off on the road. Traveled all over the country with only the homes of friends and relatives being the real “specific” locations we knew we’d have to go to. Everything else was up for grabs. We did have trips and places mapped out for at least a month or two ahead and pretty much decided where to go, on the go.
We use Escapees Club (Escapees RV Club
), as our mail forwarding service and in 5 + years, we’ve not had one problem with them. They also have RV parks around the country that are good to use with great prices. They’re very easy to use and when you call from say, Tucson, AZ and ask them to forward your mail to you, you’ll get it within 3 days. 4 max. They can overnight (for more $$), if you need.
Take your time, Tom, now that you have it. Remember, every day is Saturday, every night is Friday...
