Tessa - your travels sound very exciting, especially as it's in Germany! My travels aren't quite as interesting but we will enjoy it.

We leave in the morning from our home in Zeeland, MI to our resort in Mesa, AZ. It will take us 4-5 days to drive the 2200 miles as we don't push it too much. It still seems like some long days for us if the weather is bad.

Hoping the weather across the country is as nice as ours is today!

We are in southern Germany (Garmisch Partenkirchen), in the mountains. Now that the rain has stopped (snow a little higher up) it is beautiful. We are using the german motorhome stellplatz (places motorhomes can stop over night for a small charge + some facilities). This one can take 100 motorhomes but is more than half empty at present. We'll move on tomorrow, probably back to Fussen where we were when the weather was terrible then north to the Mosel before we return home next weekend.

1 spot... i don't think having an older MH is any different than having a newer MH - they all require attention. i find that it is no different than when we lived in the sticks & bricks house - there were things that needed attention / regular maintenance / or 'broke down'.

we still prefer the full time motorhome living. and it is amazing that more thing work than don't work especially when you think of driving down the road (of which some roads are terrible) and what that driving must do to the "guts" of the motorhome.

cheers,

It's a bummer to have RV maintenance problems but you have to do maintenance on a home as well so I guess it's inevitable. The good news is that it sounds like your hubby is up to the task. It's so much easier when DH can do the maintenance. I hope you're back up and on the road soon.

we are at home working on the RV. My husband is redoing the header above the windshield one of the running lights was leaking water into that area so he replaced the running lights and the foam that had gotten wet. Having a 1997 MH means that there is always a project, today it's the steps and entry way he's replacing the rug with tile

Thanks Roxxy! We are getting excited, at least Norm is really excited. I'm not sorry to leave the cold weather but we have made so many friends in the community where we live that it's hard to leave for 6 months. Oh well, once I'm gone and see the friends from AZ, I'll be OK.

We leave one week from Monday, the 27th. It's coming fast but not much to do until the last couple of days. Then we'll be hustling!

Enjoy your trips south Sharon and Peter! As you know i am a winter gal so I am hoping for cold and snow here in Little Rock while you are enjoying the warmth! We will be heading to California for a couple of weeks in November - but we are flying since we moved most everything out of the rig into the apartment. :-( I see lots of day trips in our future for the next year or so!
Happy Trails!

a drive along highway two is highly recommended :-)

Thanks Sharon!

Regarding where to find free (or low-cost) city parks RV parking:

I only know of two:

(1) This one in Chanute, KS (because the Nuwa Hitchhiker factory was here).

(2) And then there's one in Columbus, KS. We learned about Columbus, KS having a $10 per night city park because they have an RV dealership in their town. There are only about 8 sites there, however.

I believe that each issue of the Escapees magazine lists free (or low-cost) parking all around the U.S.A. as people send them the information. Too bad that's not all listed in one book or one spot online for future reference!

Left Branson on Tuesday.

Traveled to Stockton, MO State Park where we stayed for 2 nights.
Absolutely LOVED the peacefulness of nature!

Traveled today to Chanute, KS. This is where Nuwa Hitchhikers are "born!"
Well, -were- born. Hitchhikers are no longer being made (except for the occasional rare one that is produced via the Excel production line).

Chanute has a city park with nearly 30 RV parking spots. The first 48 hours are free; after that, you pay only $10 per night. Water & electricity only---but of course there's a dump.

We will be here through Monday night... where we will watch (on TV) the Kansas City Chiefs play against the New England Patriots.

By Wednesday, 10/1, we will be back in Kansas City, MO parked in our little RV/mobile home park until after Thanksgiving. Then on to Tampa for the winter!

We sure did! There are 11 couples here from the team. Almost all the active posters! We are a large group so we go our own way somewhat but always get together at some time during the day to spend time together. Last night's pot luck and campfire was so much fun.

I haven't posted much on SP yet (I'll do a blog at the end of the week). However, I am posting pictures and updates on FB all the time. If you do FB, my name is Sharon Link-House. Feel free to friend me and you can see lots of pictures!

Well, I hope you can avoid any snow. It seems to be starting awfully early this year. Last year our group met in Custer and it was the end of Sep that they had a blizzard the day after we left.

We should arrive in Branson later today. We just went through St Louis and made a wrong turn due to construction so that slowed us down a bit but we're back on I-44 making time now.

Our first MH was a Winnebago and we loved it and it had the heat feature you mentioned. We would still have that MH except it didn't have any slides so we felt the need to upgrade.

We have stayed at a couple KOA's that have restaurants on site but they are usually pizza or sandwich shops. Finding one that serves rib eye steak is a rare find indeed. A lot of the KOA's are old and don't accommodate our big rigs very well we've found.

hi Sharon
lol... I know... there's snow in the west! not where we are, but where we plan to be tomorrow they have had snow. we had some rain for the last hour of our drive today, but it's to clear over night and warming up tomorrow. when we arrived here, we put the furnace on as it was cold. we had the coach heat on while driving today. our itasca has a control up front, so while during, you can put the heat on high or low and it heats the entire motorhome (from the heat of the engine) while driving. love this feature.

we are at the koa at exit 170 on the i90. typically, we are not fans of the koa, but this place is great. they have a restaurant on site. never seen this at a koa. tonight's special was rib eye steak for $11.99 - and yes, it was delicious.

so when do you arrive in Branson? I've never heard of a walmart with dedicated rv parking. who knew!

safe driving and enjoy the drive :-)

Have you encountered any of the snow in South Dakota? I hear it's pretty cold there.

We left this morning at 9AM and are on our way to Branson to meet up with the group from this team. We drove through rain most of the day. It's cloudy and cool but it's stopped raining. We are spending the night in a WalMart parking lot in Vandalia, IL tonight. We went in WalMart and purchased over $100 worth of groceries so we aren't saving money except we needed the stuff anyway. This WalMart has a regular Truck & RV Parking section with big long pull through parking spots. We are not alone! Norm counted 20 spaces when he walked Bailey and they are all full.

Rocky - so sorry the timing is all wrong for you joining us in Branson. Everyone is getting pretty excited

PDQ - will you be going up in the St Louis Arch. We enjoyed that and the museum at the base. Have fun!

We are just outside of Branson at an Army Corps of Engineer park (Old Hwy 86 Public use park is the official name). It's on the lake and gorgeous. Sadly we leave on the 11th so I will miss all of you. Such bad timing but we have to be back in Little Rock for a few days. From there we will stop at Crater of Diamonds State Park outside of Mufreesboro, AR for a few days on our way back to Austin. Happy Trails everyone!

Our next trip is next week when we head to Branson to meet several members of this team. It was planned last year when we were at Custer together so we've been waiting a whole year and now it's almost here. Most of us will be in Branson from the 13th-20th. Anyone on the team is welcome to join us!

Oh, I hope you enjoy Dollywood! It was such a nice amusement park. Lots of entertainment and what we enjoyed the most was all the mature trees in the park. Can you tell it was a very hot day when we were there?

looks like you're starting your trek to Iowa! I was hoping you would check out Myrtle Beach while you were so close. I love that area.

hi one;
thanks for the tip on the park
this park is okay, a little noisy (righ beside the road), but you could ask for anything closer to the town!

hi sharon;
lol.... we too wonder where our travels will take us. the general goal when we departed may 11 was newfoundland. the current general goal is forest city (to the winnebago factory). but any and all points in-between is up for discussion.
while in rehoboth beach, we decided to head south, not north as we first thought we'd do. thus we landed in williamsburg. we care currently thinking nashville, but that could change :-)

PDQ - I guess I have never asked where this trip will be taking you! I have loved following your travels and always wonder where to next!

ONE - Darn! No one likes to have to cancel reservations. At least you have your RV in getting the attention it needs so you can get back to the serious business of having fun in your RV!

we are having the brakes checked after driving in the mountains of West Virginia; meant we had to cancel our reservations for Newport News Park. We go there often; it's about a 15 minute drive from Williamsburg. you can drive down 143 (Jefferson Ave) and drive right by Newport News Park

Gosh, you should take your car and go visit Manhatten especially Ground Zero. Our daughter went there a few years ago took in a Broadway Musical and visited Ground Zero and said it's a must if you're in NY. AND The Statue of Liberty! So much history right where you are. I'd love to visit that area!
