We are way under prepared, and likely to fail miserably! That said, next Tuesday, we (my husband Jeff and our 3 Italian Greyhounds, and I) will embark on a journey across America. We have never had an RV, and have not done much camping. I'm sure we have no idea what we have set out to do.
But, to make it more interesting, Jeff is going to run cross country while I drive and handle logistics. So any issues that come up, I will be dealing with. Along with finding him adequate calories and water, etc, to keep him properly fueled.
We bought a 28' Forrester C class, as I thought I wanted something smaller and more maneuverable. We have chosen not to tow a car, but I will just drive the RV all the time. Since we won't be anywhere for any length of time, we felt that was the best choice. (We could be wrong... like I said, we have never done anything like this before!) Since we don't know the actual pace he will be moving at, as that can change, he might need a day off, etc., we have not made any attempt to make reservations anywhere. So we are winging it.
I plan to be blogging about our adventure, as it is for a good cause, so that people can follow us. I'm sure the things we do wrong will be far more entertaining than the things we do right! Lol....
I will probably spend a good deal of time looking for answers in this forum, unless I am so overwhelmed with the logistical issues and things I cannot even imagine at this point!
Oh, we are starting in Coos Bay, OR, on 5/31, and plan on getting to NYC for the 9/11 ceremonies in September. Hope his feet and my nerves hold out!
Any suggestions are more than welcome!
