Where are we now?

So, where are we now?

We left in the middle of June, going from Atlanta to Cape Cod, MA for a campground job there.  Unfortunately, we had issues on the road.  Seems that most RVers have something go wrong at some time.  And this time it was our turn.

Upon our arrival in South Carolina,  we discovered that the full wall slide would not go out. The motor had broken (for the second time in two years). This meant that our roughly 400 square foot motorhome was now about half that size.  

So…we spent the next few weeks in Forest City, IA, at the Winnebago Service Center getting our coach repaired.  

This past week, we finally got the go ahead to hit the road!  Slide is working, doggies are happy, and our job in Boston/Cape Cod is still waiting on us.

We are currently on the roughly 1400 mile trek from Forest City, IA to Boston, MA.  We should be there by the end of the week.

I’m keeping in touch with my new granddaughter who just so happens to be a Face Timing champ!

And…we should be sharing lots of great photos from the Cape Cod area very soon!  Stay tuned!

  1. I hope you will give a tour of your RV someday. I wonder how many square foot living space, and how much storage inside and out, and where your sewing area is if you have one!

    1. Hi Karen!

      You can find a tour of the RV here: http://rvlifecamping.com/2015/04/a-look-inside-our-rv/. The coach measures 37 feet long and is 12 feet wide with sliders out. We have tons of storage underneath- a virtual basement that holds quite a bit of my craft supplies. My sewing machine is currently stashed in the bedroom closet, but as soon as we become stationary for a bit, I plan on taking over the dining table. Or the picnic table on a nice day! LOL!

      Thank you so much for following along!

  2. Saw your RV on the road in Maine on Saturday I think it was around Portland- Hadn’t heard of you but saw the graphics/website on the RV- had to check it out!

    Looks like a fun website- I will visit again!

  3. Hi Suzy,

    We just returned from a trip to Muskogee OK to visit son and family and dodged some really bad weather on the way home. We always travel with a portable weather radio and always make sure we know what county we are in to say on top of weather conditions. Travel safe and don’t miss the train from Williams AZ to the Grand Canyon!

  4. Lucky you! The area between Williams & Flagstaff is one of my favorites. I’d love a little piece of property to spend summers & then travel back to So. Cal. for the winters. Enjoy!

    1. Yes! After traveling around for a bit in every direction, we are very glad we chose this area for our summer job! I love the fact that it is never too hot outside. Who knows? We may come back here to live some day! Hope you are having a great summer! Thanks so much for following along!

  5. Suzy,we are presently camping at Cummins in Forest Park waiting to get our AC fixed. Wouldn’t you know that both would be out at the same time! Anyway we saw your RV here and wanted to say Hi and let you know we are also full timers as well. Hope we get to meet you sometime soon.

    1. Hi Linda!

      So nice to meet you! Hope your air conditioning problem was solved. They are definitely a necessity this time of year! We dropped ours off for the necessary services. Seems that maintenance is a high dollar item. But repairs are higher, so there you go.

      We are currently staying with my daughter in Douglasville. We’ve been parked in their driveway since the beginning of April. Our first grandchild was born on April 20 and we are here in town for that. We will be hitting the road around mid June for our next campground job in Cape Cod, MA. It has been great being home with family, but we are ready to get back on the road. Lots of things to see and do!

      How long have you been full timing? Do you work at campgrounds or just do the traveling bit? We are at the point now where we can take a few months off here and there, but still have to do a work camping job now and then. Maybe we will see each other on the road sometime! It is definitely a small world out there.
