We survived our trip.
We added a few extra stops along the way as we had time. I added links to the camp sites we stayed at just in case anyone is interested.
Pictures and videos posted here. All are from my camera, still need to upload from my wife’s
2015 Cross County RV vacation - Dias Family
Started from Lincoln Ca
Hemingway South Carolina to visit my wife’s Brother and his family. We also picked up my Father-in-law who flew into SC from Italy
o Stayed a day to visit and rest. We made it from Lincoln California in 4 days. Very aggressive driving
Virginia Beach – Father-in-law wanted to visit a few friends there
Washington DC – Checked out a number of the Smithsonian museums and local sites
o We stayed at a great RV park called Cherry Hill Park
o City bus came right to the park and took you to the metro line. You could also sign up for 1 day and 2 day tours. We decided to do our own thing and walk around
Gettysburg Pennsylvania – had time so we went and checked out the Gettysburg museum
Hershey Pennsylvania – Couldn’t miss checking out the Hershey chocolate factory and spent a few days at the amusement park
o Stayed at the Hersheypark Camping Resort
o They had a free shuttle to the Amusement park. Very nice park, we had a spot along a creek and could hear the water at night. Little ray played in the water
Niagara Falls – we went to the Canadian side and took a few tours
o We stayed at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario
o Lots of things for the kids to do and they had an inexpensive shuttle to the falls
Graceland, Nashville Tennessee – had some time so we checked out Elvis’s museum and Mansion
o We just passed through but saw an RV park right next to Graceland
Krum Texas – stayed at my brother’s ranch. Kids had fun playing with all their cousins and riding horses
Grand Canyon Arizona – Pictures do not do the depth of the place at all. You get a little woozy looking over the edge
o We stayed at the GRAND CANYON RAILWAY RV PARK
o We took the train ride into the Grand Canyon. At 2 hrs and 15 minutes it was a little long for the little ones and you only had 3 hours to walk around. We only saw the south rim areas and would have gone to the north side if we had a car.
Las Vegas Nevada – Took a day and walked around Vegas at night. Can’t beat the light show
o Stayed at the Circus Circus RV park
o Basically a parking lot with RV hookups but it was right next to the casino and not too far from the monorail
South Lake Tahoe California – We stayed near the lake to watch the 4th of July fireworks.
o We stayed at Camp Richardson Hotel & Resort
o A little rough getting in and out but not too bad. The beach wasn’t too far of a walk across the road.
Back home late afternoon- unpacked, and put the RV to rest
o Total miles ~7,600
