The RV full timing Adventure – 2014
We officially became full time RVer’s on July 10, 2014 when we closed on the sticks & bricks. But on July 21, 2014 is when we pulled up levelers, and pulled out of the state of NY, where my husband was born, raised and worked and I lived most of my life. Our journey now begins.

So it must have taken us 3 hours to pack up and finally leave Hickories Park in Owego, NY. We were there just over a month and wow, I can not believe how much we had to pack. So with the dogs in the pick up, the cats in the Jeep with me, we head out. We had to pull over at the first rest stop because our radios were not working. That was a must because I had printed out directions from the Good Sam Trip Planner and hubby had the GPS for trucks. Well we finally got going and then it got close to our first destination, and hubby’s GPS bounced signal all over the mountains and took us on a highway way out of the way. Finally getting to our destination, running on fumes. We set up, got the animals situated and then went on another adventure just to find gas. Oh, brother. Well, the GPS is fired and my print out directions are the final word from here on out! The very first place we stopped was at Nittany Greyhound kennels in Port Matilda, PA ( http://www.nittanygreys.org ) This is who we adapted Corky from, and wanted to meet his foster crew and get his paperwork. Toni and her wonderful family put us up on her front yard to mooch-camp. We had some neighbors that entertained our kitties. These folks do wonderfulrescue and have a beautiful farm. We are so appreciative of their hospitality. I knew Corky wanted to come with us when he smiled and ran to us when he was in a dog run. Poor Tasha thought she was going to be left behind; both loved getting into the truck to go this a.m. The kitties do not like the travel, I don’t think any do. So we try to go 3-4 hours at a time. We pulled into Green Acres Lake Park Resort in Lake Milton, OH ( www.GreenAcresLakePark.com )today, for a two night stay with electric and water. We used the Passport America benefit for the first time and it did pay for itself – 1/2 price for both nights! It is a sweltering 95 degrees. From here we go to Elkhart, Indiana for suspension and brake upgrades. We are thrilled to begin our journey throughout America.
