The Voyage of 7 Months Begins!
We're off! The trailer has been re-packed with a few things added and a few things removed, we've finalized things with the post office, the dentist, the state dept of education (homeschooling), the insurance companies, and a thousand other details. We've even sent in our $10 dues to be members of the WBCCI Full-Timers' Intraclub.
First stop is somewhere in the Adirondacks tonight. We won't be leaving our campground in Vermont until late this afternoon, so I expect to drive less than three hours. We hope to arrive in Ohio by Monday sometime, but I'll have to post later and update that because we really don't have a firm itinerary. We're just going to wing it, with the goal of being in Jackson Center by Tuesday or so.
Today, we just need to get things hitched up, pack a few last-minute items, and go to a final family luncheon at 2 pm. Everyone thinks that just because we are heading off (and don't plan to be back for at least six months, except for Christmas) that we're falling off the edge of the Earth. Really, we're as close as our mobile phones and email, and anytime we need to come back to Vermont we can hop a plane and be there in a few hours. But it's nice to have a send-off.
If you stay tuned into this blog you'll hear more about the final trip of Vintage Thunder, and I'll post some pictures of the new Tour of America trailer later next week. In about two weeks, this blog will come to an end, and I'll switch over to the new Tour of America blogsite (to be announced)!
