Betty and I leave in a few weeks for our summer RV trip. I've received enough emails wondering if we will be going through a particular town or area that I decided to post these maps.
The first is for the trip to Wisconsin. I haven't noted every stop or all the places we will be visiting in Wisconsin but you can see the general shape of the journey. It will take us 24 days to get from Scottsdale to Egg Harbor.
After spending three weeks in Wisconsin the trip back has been left much less detailed. We have a general idea of how we'd like to make our way home, but we have no firm plan. We have no reservations or need to be home on a particular date. We will let our moods dictate the final route. The Badlands and Mt. Rushmore are the only "must sees." I expect the trip home will take about a month.
Betty has made several built in bookcases, medicine cabinets, and extra storage places in the RV. So, we are just about set. It will be quite an adventure and something completely different for our satisfying retirement.
As a sort of warm up trip, we spent the last few days in Flagstaff with the whole family. We took the RV and rented a small cabin at the campground for my oldest daughter's family. We celebrated (a very much delayed) Betty's birthday, our wedding anniversary, both of our daughters' birthdays, a granddaughter's birthday, and a satisfying life in general.
We also enjoyed temperatures almost 30 degrees cooler than at home. At this time of year, that is no small blessing!
