Howdy All,

this is the first entry for our cross country trip blog....

the idea for the trip started about a month ago.... and now has growned into an actual "go do" thing..

One of the things to deal with trip planning is just too much information available... there is AAA auto club, Good Sam Club, FMCA, and others.... whew!

We've sorta settled on using the Good Sam trip planner as it will identify rest areas, dump sites, fueling stations, state road conditions. We use that along with a AAA TripTik. And then Google maps gets used.

The other effort has been getting the RV ready for a long trip.... the Newmar Kountry Star only has 32,000 miles on it... but I still check tires (I plan to replace the steering tires), engine tune-up, diesel generator tuneup, the 2 slides, and the list goes on.

We gave up on satellite TV, it got way to complicated... and you have to sign up for two years... so we'll make do with CG cable and the RV tv antenna, along with movies.

Dear Trudy & Doug:

This will be such fun reading about your cross country adventure! When I was married to Jay, we crossed the country from Indiana to California! Jay was pulling our trailer and I was driving our Avanti car! I am not sure if you have actually left yet but will keep checking your Blog!

I sent a Birthday card and check to your house, Trudy, for Lexi! Wasn't sure that I had her correct address!

So have a wonderful trip and I have so enjoyed what has been written so far - great sense of humor!!

Love,

Gloria Wolper

Hi Gloria,

Trudy enjoyed your comments... she explained who Jay was to me. And Avanti cars were awesome!

Anyway, as you have probably gathered, each blog entry is listed on the right side of the blog page. This FMCA blog software is not the best there is, but it will do the job.

We leave this coming Saturday, May 30...

Love from us,

Trudy, Doug, and Dale the Dog :unsure:
