Tuesday, September 13, 2016 – We’ve finally done it. We’ve visited all of the 48 connected states (or to use a big word, contiguous states) in the United States.
We left Hammond, Louisiana in early May, 2013 and it is now September, 2016. We’ve taken it slowly and have enjoyed everything we’ve been blessed to see and do. The people we’ve met along the way were the best part of our travels.
This years journey has taken us 4,635 miles so far (that’s just in Dora.) We’ll add close to 1,000 more miles to that before we reach home in November.
Our current travel plans have us staying in Shelby, NC for one week at the home of a Boondocker’s Welcome couple. We won’t be totally boondocking since we’ll have 50 amp service. A highlight of our time in Shelby is that we’ll get to meet my boss Deborah and her husband Aaron on Thursday! We’ve only worked together through Skype and email before now. Ill bring my computer with me and we’ll get to work together in the same room! We have so much in common, our love for our Lord being a big one and I really enjoy working with her.
When we leave Shelby, NC we will go to Cleveland, GA (north of Atlanta) for 10 days and go to see an Atlanta Braves baseball game. One of the last games they will play in Turner Field, ever. A new ballpark is being built for the Braves opening next year! We’ve loved the Atlanta Braves for years and have visited Turner Field a few times over the years. They are in last place in the standings this year but that’s okay, it’ll make it easier for us to get tickets!
From GA we will go for a week to Dandridge, TN which is near Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg. We especially want to go to Dollywood to play while we’re there! Then on east of there to Crossville, TN for a week. We chose to go to Northern Georgia and Tennessee end of September through mid October because that is when the leaves will be changing colors and I LOVE TO SEE THE LEAVES CHANGING COLORS.
Our plans past there are open. We have about a month before we need to be home to go to a Cajun RV Rally in Lafayette, Louisiana so we’ll see where life takes us! We may go down to the Gulf Coast and hang out there for a while!
Future travels will be short enough to take our granddaughters with us, or for just Roy and I to go for two to three months during the summer. Our health and our funds will be big factors in how our future travels go!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
