By the way I told the wife the trip couldn't get worse it did! We got caught in a hail storm damaged the front of the travel trailer as well. We had trouble with our new Coleman trailer on a trip but that's a whole nuther story.
Oh, never say it couldn't get worse!!!! That just means that Murphy's Law will come around and bit you!!!!

Oh the joys of retirement.
We are hoping for a Ft. Wilderness vacation in April. Nothing nailed down, yet. My wife and I will be married 25 years in April, and I told here that she you pick where she wants to go for an anniversary trip. It is between Branson and Ft. Wilderness. When she tells me, I'll know.

I see you were at Mackinac. Was this for the National Rally? If it was, were you parked on the end? I've seen your unit, or a unit just like yours, and I'm thinking it was Michigan. We enjoyed the place so much that we stayed an extra week to check out the U.P. Had a great time. We want to attend the rally in North Carolina next year.

Regards,

Update: Didn't go to Death Valley as planned, but went to Joshua Tree National Park instead. Hit Slab City for one night (that was enough for me), then headed up to Quartzsite, AZ and stayed at the La Posa South LTVA for about a week. Now I'm at the Imperial Dam LTVA in Southern Cali, near Yuma AZ. I'll stay here at least until I have to dump my tanks, and after that, who-know's-where I'll be going.

Well.....

Haven't sat down and figured out where we traveled completely. Started the year out with my old fifth-wheel from CrossRoads on a trip from my home in Virginia Beach to Daytona Bike Week. No problems and a great trip. Traded that unit in on a 2009 Jayco 36 Super C. Started out our offroad motorcycle racing season in March. Over the year we traveled from our home to many different races in Virginia (around 15 events), New Jersey (five events), Maryland, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and South Carolina. While in Pennsylvania, stopped off on the way home at Hershey so the wife could ride some coasters. After several trips to Hershey, we finally made it to the auto museum this year and loved it. Wanted to take a pure camping trip over the summer months but didn't find the time. Finally winterized our RV this past week when the temps finally dipped into freezing. Hoping to hit Daytona for Bike Week again this year then the racing starts up again in March.
