Today was the day we've been
waiting for, for 3 years.
Yesterday was preparation day.
George put the bikes on the back..
..and moved the things from Harvey
that he wanted in the truck..
Our little buddy was getting impatient..
So today was the day!
We got all hooked up..
..the neighbors (cousins) came by to
help and send us off..
A few pictures of our departure..

Coming out of our street,
we just made it past a tree limb.
But finally, we're on the road!
We drove 5 hours, and
stopped for the night
at a Flying J.
Tomorrow, on to Elkhart, IN!
CONGRATULATIONS!!! You finally made it. Freedom at last. So glad you had a great first day of travel. We've been thinking about you today and hoping all went well. Have fun!!! :)ReplyDelete

Safe Travels and Happy Trails....
My husband and I have just become interested in the RV life. He will retire in 3 and 1/2 years so I'm already selling the STUFF out of the house.
We have a lot to research and learn. I will be following your adventures and hopefully learning a lot.
Looks like your off to a great start.
