Timely discussion - we've been retired for 16 years - the retirement goal? - visit all the big Parks on the continent - and now?? - well - we've made a helluva dent - but the rest take a lot of travel time to get to - our solution?? - looks like we're gonna sell the Bambi - fly to our destination - then rent a camper van ..... yikes ...... life without the Bambi is not something I'm real excited about ....

I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done. Lucille Ball

personally i wouldn't do it, i would hope that when i get to that dishion point that i have exhausted all possibilities. have you? how about drive to your destination, then when you're done store it in the area and then pick up where you left off next year or next month, whatever time you decided.

Secret to Happiness

What is the Secret to happiness on the road?.. It's a common topic of discussion around the camp fire. My wife and I are full timers and work from our Airstream. We learned to make time we spend on the move an important part of the experience. Road time shouldn’t be something simply tolerated in between the good spots or allowed to become a test of endurance. I offer guidelines that I believe to be the Secret to Happiness on the road.
1. Stay off the freeway whenever possible.
2. Avoid toll roads.
3. Take the time to Plan a Route in detail, but stay flexible.
4. Avoid large metropolitan areas.
5. 200 miles a day is too many.
6. Keep track of your friends on the road.
7. Avoid sleeping at truck stops or freeway rest areas.
8. Keep your equipment clean and in good repair.
9. Make the time to walk a couple miles every day.
10. Relax and Enjoy the Ride.

I can handle #7, but I have a couple of my own.
As a fulltimer I avoid rolling on the 1st of the month, and weekends.
I leave those for the gotta move today loads flapping on the freeway, and weekend fun hogs that need to work, hurrying to and from short vacations.
