Who knows where we will end up this year - we don't but sure enjoy getting there.

I've posted the travels so far on our blog On The Road Again. We started in Maine, small TC repair at TC Warehouse in NH, and then on to Assateague to meet up with TC friends and enjoy four days of beauty.

Was good to see so many who read here at the Mid Atlantic TC Rally. From there we travelled to OBX, camping at Frisco Woods in an almost underwater site. Ferry to Ocracoke and incredible beach walking, then on to Cedar Island to the Croatan National Forest. Tonight we are in Myrtle Beach State Park. It is amazing that the state was able to save this stretch of wooded beach area from developers. Truck will get serviced tomorrow and then onward to ???? We know we're headed in the general direction of Vicksburg with the thought of continuing on to Arizona if it isn't in the 100 degree temps by then. Retirement is wonderful, diesel is probably as inexpensive as it's going to be for a while, so we'll go til we can't any more.

Lots of photos on the blog link above. Anne and Joe / TwoMaineiacs

We're in Oklahoma. Tomorrow supposed to be 93 but then a cool down.
Diesel at Walmart Murphy station in Chickasha OK is $3.84 per gal. If you use a Walmart credit card you get 5 cents off. ($3.79 per gal. net). We also get cash back on our credit card. Every little bit helps.
If you get into Arkansas, check out the new RV park in Hot Springs on Lake Catherine. Catherine's Landing. Very nice park.
Can't believe you're actually leaving the beautiful state of Maine! LOL

I'm sure it's great to be "on the road again" for an extended trip in your palace on wheels. You'll probably run across the Farctics again somewhere out west. You might make sure it's not the lower elevations of Arizona as we had 105 the other day and even with the really big cool down into the 90's it is still too warm for us to camp in. Hope you'll be updating as you go, have a safe trip!

Weather radio went off last evening with a warning of 40-50mph winds, quarter size hail and heavy rains. We watched the small storm cell with the red eye as it rapidly approached us from the west remembering that tornado we ran into last year. Then it just seemed to disappear and the larger rain dipped south of us. We got only a minor shower. I don't know if those weather radios and I phones are a curse or a blessing. Worry or don't know? Guess it's always better to know what's coming.

We'll explore a bit today after the oil change/service and then head south to Hunting Island near Beauford, SC.

Don't know about the Farctics. Last seen they were tucked away in City of Rocks looking quite content to be a stone.

Hi Anne & Joe, It was good seeing you and the Yankee Contingent at Tall Pines.
We're heading for the Bull Pen on Assateague, the surf is calming after the big blow, we hope to put some tasty Striper in the freezer.
We're hoping to get to the Montana TC Rally, we've had Glacier NP on our Bucket List. We shooting for a mid-May departure, heading thru the Upper Peninsula, we see some tempting "Blue Highways" on the Northern routes away from the heat of AZ and the collisions of disparate air masses. Keep your weather eyes peeled.
