New Mode: RV Traveling! First Trip

Meet our new mode of travel purchased during the Covid-19 pandemic when our international travel came to a complete halt!


We knew that eventually we wanted to travel the USA in a motorhome but it was further away for us.  Well, circumstances changed.  The pandemic hit and our youngest son took a new job in Virginia and they currently live in southeast Florida.  They have a newborn and were trying to figure out how they both could safely look for a new home and do some exploration of their new city!  Well, “Miss Daisy” our class C, 33 foot Gulfstream Conquest came to the rescue!  She became ours the first week in May!

Our first adventure with our new mode of transportation was to travel from Ohio to SE Florida, Newport News, Va, back down to Florida, and then home the third week of May!  We really learned quickly what we needed for traveling in the RV, what was working properly and needed fixed.  On our way to Florida it was the two of us with our rescue dog Matilda.  She was quite nervous when the RV was moving.  When we made it to the Ft. Lauderdale area we picked up our newest granddaughter and her parents for a trip to Virginia!  Now it was 4 adults, a 7- week old baby, and our 15 pound dog.IMG_2278

We camped at the beautiful Newport News State Park!

It was perfect for keeping safe.  We prepared and ate all of our meals in the camper or at our campsite.  We watched the baby while the kids wore their masks and looked for a new home!
