One of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of being on the road again, in my opinion, is heading out with incomplete plans. Things always work out, even if you have to go to a funky little campground off the beaten track for a night or two.

There can be magic in exploring, in playing the hand you are dealt . . .

PS Bob, my last post seemed to have missed conveying the sense of excitement that comes with heading out for a journey, even if the plans are incomplete! I am stoked for your upcoming trip, and a bit envious that our next outing will probably be after winter here in the NE. Sorry if my earlier comment seemed a little like a lecture.

Peter

If you haven't done so, continue to check for reservation cancellations at all state parks you'd like to stay at. You may have a good chance of getting a spot where you want to stay

Someday I’ll tell you a Milton Friedman ~ William Buckley story I heard along this thread. Coincidentally this was also the quote in my 66th BD card recently. Cosmic.

I tend to lend my project management skills to vacation planning a bit too often. You’re absolutely right…key is hitting the road. Thanks for the reminder. We’re just so excited about this trip…19 day maiden voyage; Oregon to SD …to my old alma mater and where I met my wonderful wife and back home. Not to mention a nice break from the rains of late. I heard it never rains in Autzen Stadium or San Diego

Subfan1, thanks to for the reminder to recheck. Seems Crystal & SC both have openings and SD proper worked out for the better too. Not sure what’s up with Morro Bay…but I discovered Morro Strand….which has opening, bingo. One of those places you drive by a million times and you look past it at the ocean.

Thanks Bob, looking forward to hearing the MF/WB story during my CalDream16/17 trip next fall and winter! [edit -- oops, not sure if putting this notion out there is a good or bad idea?]

For everyone's enjoyment, TerryC has offered some interesting thoughts on his recent move from the FC20 to a new FC25 FB Twin here:

Pete - Well, you've let the cat out of the bag and now you have to spill the beans and come clean about the 16/17 CalDream trip! (Mixed metaphors x3 = subtle challenge)

Peter, it’s a great idea…I suspect the music playlist, which must be already spinning in your head, is well ahead of the trip planning progress. Remember, most surf shops rent boards and wet suits, how do you say Swami's here I come. CalDream 16/17…sounds like an awesome adventure! Woo Hoo!

Peter - Are you going to document your trip here? Blog? Maybe a series of YouTube videos with music...?

Thanks Bob and TCwheels, the general plan is to stay on the east coast, especially New England, for the spring and summer with shakedown trips, then head west in the fall. The On The Road sub-forum here will be a more appropriate venue IMO. Not sure about more than that for now. YouTube or blog? Probably not . . .

Thanks for all the new music Bob on the OTRA Music I thread. Will give it a listen later today.

Stereo / TV replacement?

Hi all -

Has anyone replaced the Sony Stereo in their rigs yet? The stock one makes an annoying fan or buzzing sound when its on and is really a pain in the arse to adjust. Also, it's set up for a MP3 player. I don't really need that. I'd like to find something that sounds really good and is simple to use.

Then there's the Samsung TV. It already has a vertical white streak running through it. Is there a replacement that can use the same support?

Thanks!

Having my Sony replaced next week on my 2011. New deck has Bluetooth so I don't have to mess around with connecting cables (that didn't work anyway) to iPhone or iPad. I'll post specs after install.

Happy New Year "20 Footers"!
We decided to attend our first rally at Alumnapalooza 2016.
Any other 20 Footers planning to attend?

Are you referring to this rally and location in South Carolina?

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...on-143824.html

Palmetto Cove RV Campground - Welcome

The 3/31-4/3 dates probably won't work for us, but something a bit later and closer to Long Island NY might work.

End of April in Asheville NC? Or maybe Cape Hatteras?

Peter
