New Lucy Hits The Open Road

Well, we're at it again. Fred, Ethel, and New Lucy headed out from Santa Rosa Beach, Florida this morning. That's right, we actually were wheels up before the crack of noon. This time we are making the trip with the New Lucy. Last October we traded Lucy in on a brand new 2015 Airstream. This is our first big trip in the new Lucy. We have spent about 60 nights in her already, mostly pretty near to home. This is New Lucy's first cross country excursion.

We plan to make our way to Maine over the next week or so. Today we headed north through the Alabama countryside. We did have to make an unscheduled stop at Jackson Chevrolet in Andalusia, Alabama. Fred the truck had a slight computer glitch, and we spent about two hours getting it straightened out.

We continued north into the evening. As darkness started to set in, we found a nice little campground in Hartselle, Alabama, and got settled in for the night. We covered about 360 miles today. We did get a few pictures along the way.

Can't wait for the rest of the story. On a side note did you need a hitch extender to hook up the AS behind the truck camper? Peace,jim

We do not use a hitch extender on our truck as the truck camper doesn't extend past the truck bumper. Since we use a Hensley, there is enough clearance to fully open the camper door.

On the road again

Brian,
Look forward to hearing and seeing you latest adventure.
Amy and I will be headed down your way (SRB), lots this Summer.
We found a lot after all.
It's just down the street from our current home and 1 minute from the beach....and no HOA!
Thanks for having us into your home and showing us all your very cool toys.
Safe travels.
George & Amy

Looks awesome Brian. Some gently rolling slopes, and lots of quiet roads. It doesn't get any better. Safe travels to both of you, and keep the pictures coming.
Kind regards,
Gavin

Moosetags is on the loose! We enjoy your travel threads, well done. We're in our Airstream too, just a short trip to Denver to visit our sons and then back to Minnesota. We wanted to explore the southeast, but it will have to wait until next time. I had strong headwinds driving out here, really cost extra fuel consumption. I'm glad diesel is 2.70 or less now as I used quite a bit more of it pushing in those winds.

I can't wait to hear about your Jackson Center visit.

David
