Last Leg Home from First trip

We are at the Hanna State park in Jacksonville tonight on the the last leg of our trip from picking up a new AS 31 08 Classic in Lakewood NJ. We left our home in Ft. Lauderdale over 2 1/2 weeks ago. We are new RVers coming from a boating lifestyle. I have a lot to post with photos and questions and some answers to my own. I will attempt to post when we finally return tomorrow night. We will have a short rest of 2 weeks and then off to the PNW on a round trip of 6 weeks.

Gayle & I just finished a 3 month (10,000) 13 States in our 77 Argosy. This was the first time that eight of us has ever taken over a 2 week vacation. I have to correct of the 10,000 miles. We did about 8500 miles in the Argosy and purchased a 03 AS on the road but the AS was in Tampa, FL. The rest of the mileage was in our Safari coming back from Tampa. What a trip it was. We are already planning our next trip next year.

Hah! I knew the title of your earlier post couldn't stand for long. That was the one titled "Trip of a Lifetime". Now we see that you've got the bug bad, and perhaps this will have been just the first of many, Trips of the Year!

And many happy miles to you.

Pat

Great looking rig. Beautiful photographs. Sorry about your tire problem, but the people at the Austin Discount Tire were tops when I lived there. I wish there was one in Little Rock. Where was the "flying saucer" located?
