Life has a way of changing our carefully made plans! We had expected to travel south to Florida in March and unexpected ice/snow and other things kept us home bound in New England. So finally, after what seems like a very long time, we are ready to ramble!!!!
Here is a look at where our previous two years of travel have taken us!
Now we are putting a blank map on the new Winnie, and will have to start all over again! Tough job, but someone needs to do it.
We expect to leave on our Great Alaskan Road Trip on May 17th, and will take our time and enjoy the journey over the next few months. We have studied maps, weather, and road reports; and are currently wrapping up all the mundane details that need to be taken care of when you are on the road for an extended time. Minor details like mail, canceling cable and internet, cleaning out the fridge, vehicle registrations, property taxes, and the like!
We are excited to be towing our Jeep this trip! The Blue Ox tow bar and the Patriot braking system have been installed and tested. We have actually practiced hooking, towing, and unhooking the Jeep Wrangler.
Charlie has built a bicycle carrier in the back storage area, has a solar suitcase to supplement battery power while boondocking off the grid, and has the rig in tip top condition.
We really are ready to ramble!!!
