My husband and I are from NH and have been RVers since 1996. We have upgraded 5 times and now own a Gulf Stream Sun Voyager. We retired in Jan of 08 and immediately set off on an adventure. We are Nascar fans and went to Daytona. From there we travelled out west to Las Vegas for the race there. We are big lovers of Zoos, caverns, mountains, lakes, waterfalls and everything in nature. We stopped in Oklahoma City on the way out west and went to the zoo and the Arboretum, both of which we loved. We took Rte 40 most of the way starting in TN. We went over the Hoover Dam and had to go through HomeLand Security. Apparently they are worried about someone blowing up the Dam. They were very nice and looked our motorhome over thoroughly. They are building a big bridge to bypass the Dam. The bridge looks monstrous. We didn't stop at the Dam as we have been there before. After leaving Las Vegas we went to Lake Havasau AZ where the London Bridge is. We fell in love with the place. Unfortunately we didn't stay as long as I would have liked as we had tickets to the races in Bristol TN. After that, we stayed in a nice campground called Lake View in Bluff City TN for almost two weeks. IThe staff treated us like family. t is part of Passport America where you only pay half price if you are a member. We are life time members and love it. Anyway we travelled to NC a couple of days to go to Chimney Rock, Linville Caverns, Linville waterfall and Grandfather Mountain (a must see with its mile high swinging bridge you can walk across). After that we went Martinsville VA (our favorite race track). Then we headed to FL to visit ailing relatives. After leaving there we camped at Stone Mountain outside Atlanta GA. Awesome place. We loved the laser show. Then we came home to Lake Winnisquam in NH.
I hope I haven't bored you with my quick trip notes. We did not dare head west this year with the economy the way it is. We hope to head back to AZ next winter.
In other trips we have been to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (awesome!). We have been to every cavern in VA and many more in the PA, IN, TN. We have been to Quechee Gorge in VT, impressive with quaint shops and Cabot cheese. We have been to Lake Champlain in North Hero VT (to visit family). When coming back from Grand Canyon we were on Rte 70 with Tornados hitting all around us. With just stayed behind a tractor trailer and by the time we camped for the night my jaw was killing me from gritting my teeth. We had on a local radio station and I was looking at a map, and the tornado hit several spots south of us, and then immediately north of us. We never actually saw the tornado.
We actually eloped to Roanoke VA in our motorhome in 1997 after the Martinsville race and went on the BlueRidge parkway on our honeymoon. We saw a lot of deer and a hiked to a waterfall. We spent the next weekend at the World of Outlaws sprint car races in Williams Grove, PA.
We would love to hear of others adventures especially out west. We are very anxious to see Bryce Canyon, Old Faithful and much, much more.
Welcome to our group... :)
My husband and I have been camping a while - we have had two camping trips that were very exciting. The first one we went with my husband's family in their motor home from Colorado to Washington DC, New York City, into Canada, down thru Michigan and Wisconsin and back to Colorado. Besides it being so memoriable - we had our oldest son who at that time was 3 years of age and I was pregant with our youngest son.
Our second memoriable trip was when our sons were teenagers - we took them to Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore,then back to CO.
Each of our trips have their own memories but I am hoping that we get to travel to those places again and other places but only time will tell.
