On the roads between PA and NY we had a few problems. One of the problems was The night before leaving I set the destination in the GPS with the via points so it would go where I wanted it to go. In the morning when I set the destination, it ‘forgot’ the ‘via’ points (or I did not know how to recall it) anyway it is really no fun being lost in a vehicle that is a total of about 60 ft long. Brothers and Sisters, it is hard to do a U-Turn in this outfit (but I have done it, when I must make a u-turn, I miss Texas!).
When traveling in a motor home everything that is loose, must be secured some way. Sherry puts the countertop stuff in the sink. We put a long bungee around the Kitchen chairs so they do not wander.The sliding doors have snaps and the shower door has a hasp.
Rattling things bother Sherry (because she hears). So the iron skillet and broiler pan comes out of the oven and go on the bed.
With all the precautions, when the roads are rough, stuff still shifts, things fall off the wall and secured doors and drawers somehow open. OR when I approach a turn too fast and brake too hard, things move.

SOOOO although it was a good trip, we did incur some problems. Nothing life threatening, just rough and nerve wracking.
We look at it like the test pilot who said, “Any landing you walk away from is a good one.”
So we consider any trip that the tow vehicle is still there, and we have not lost anything, to be a good trip.
The bright spot was the view from our picture window, and the fresh cherries and blueberries we had to snack on.

Hey, I just want to thank you for stopping by. That was nice of you, I really mean that.
Traveling in the summer you will live with road maintenance, especially north because it is hard to repair in cold weather.
