I am finally able to go get my trailer!
I am REALLY hoping the weather cooperates and the highways will be clear. It is a long drive going halfway across the country, taking three very long days to get there. And, of course, it’ll be a bit slower on the return since I’ll be pulling the trailer back. I did not want to go this early; it was actually my first thought a few months back but I decided to wait due to the possibility of bad weather. Life being what it is, I don’t have the time other than right now to make the trip before I start back to work due to several last-minute things beyond my control that have come up.
I have actually been quite a bit busier with work stuff this winter than I thought I would be. My off-season has ended up being rather short. It has cut into my traveling and I have not really been able to do as much as I wanted. But, on the other hand, it has definitely saved some money by staying put. With all that happened this past year I missed a lot of work so the money saved is definitely good on the bank account. It is also a transition year for me so I’m okay with that. I’ll have time to travel this summer and in the off-season plus I’ll have a trailer to travel in.
Not too sure of the route other than going southeast. I have to stay flexible in case I need to re-route my travels. And of course that takes more time to go a different route, translating to more money spent on gas. I plan on “dry-camping” at campgrounds on the way back so I can use the electricity to keep warm and use the microwave (maybe some Rosedale ribs!). That will help save money on meals and propane. It’s so much cheaper than a hotel room but some of that is made up for with the additional fuel needed to pull the trailer.
Whichever way I go I am positive it will be an adventure.
