Welcome to the adventures of a couple of vagabonds. In 2009 we decided that we'd give the USA a turn in the holiday rota, skipping Essex, Malaga or the Alentejo. We decided to get off the beaten track, driving an RV from Seattle to New York.Read More
We know, it's been a while. It truly is amazing how busy you can get when doing very little. Especially with only one computer between us, and often only our trusty Mifi connection. Nevertheless, to catch up:Read More
Has been a bit difficult to update the blog because a. we had little internet availability b. my computer finally decided to expire. Very sad. My 8 year old MacBook Pro is no more :(
We often woke up at the Salton Sea, planning to leave, but then couldn't think of a single damn reason to do so.Read More
Hi. It's me again: Gully Bill. Robin spent four days trying to write the next part of the blog, and he got as far as this;
I'm quite relaxed… ...I'll do the blog tomorrow. lol.Read More
Cat-tail State Park near Havasu Lake City is a very pretty place. Quiet too, except for the raised fireside voices of the semi-intoxicated. And we didn't see any mountain lions, nor cougars.Read More
A bit of catching up to do, I believe. So let's start at the top: I promised a bit more about this being our last trip with Moturis/Camping World.Read More
Merry Christmas everyone!
We left Shady Lane and Barstow behind, and picked up the old Route 66 east.Read More
We drove approx 300 yards down the road from our RV park in Bakersfield to find the Camping World service centre. So that was easy!Read More
Day 1 with the RV started when we left San Leandro, Thursday lunchtime.
The usual first stop was Walmart; coffee grinder, coffee maker, coffee beans, coffee mug, and some other essentials: like food.Read More
Thanks to Gully Bill for filling in. He's right; I wasn't really in the mood. Generally speaking, we like flying with KLM, but this wasn't one of the best experiences.Read More
Hi there, friends!
A bit of a surprise today - Robin was such a miserable bastard yesterday that he was 'given some time' to think things over, and so they asked me to give this blogging stuff a bash instead.Read More
Do you know how irritating it is, when someone puts their seat back in the reclined position, and it stays that way for eleven hours?Read More
The title of this post is not meant to tempt the dreaded brown fate; those that have followed our exploits so far will know exactly where I'm going.Read More
Next time we're thinking to travel a square from Seattle to BC Canada, round the Rockies to Yellowstone, and back to the Washington or Oregon coast….. see you there??Read More
Final thoughts? We loved the vehicle this time. Much better than the Type Cs. And of course we enjoyed our trip; highlights being NYC and the Carolina Outer Banks.Read More
We've had a few domestic issues (!) to take care of since our return, so apologies for not completing the story properly. Although, as for Bilbo's wanderings in the Lord of the Rings, there's never truly an End.Read More
So, after our interruptions at Midway, and offering countless apologies about the behaviour of the British Army 250 years ago (I think they might struggle to repeat that now), we wereRead More
As usual on our travels, we stayed off the interstates, and dawdled our way south on the scenic highways. And as equally usual, this brought us an unexpected bonus.Read More
We've had a few internet issues, despite our Mifi doobie, so - apologies - we are a bit behind.
So let's catch up….Read More
