6/15/2019: Thursday, 6/20, we plan to head out on our Summer Western trip (we did a Spring trip to NM, AZ and TX in March/April). On our Summer trip we plan to head up to South Dakota via mostly non-interstates through western Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa/Nebraska. After SD we will drop down through Wyoming to Colorado where we will spend some time visiting and camping with three of our grown children and their families. When we leave CO the plan is for our two youngest grandsons to travel back to Florida with us. We plan to take them to the Great Sand Dunes and Carlsbad Caverns and maybe to see the Marfa Lights in Marfa, TX and maybe some other interesting places on the way home.
We recently purchased a Roku streaming device and will use it instead of the Amazon Firestick we currently have on the TV in the trailer. We recently switched from DirectTV back to Spectrum (10 times faster internet) and the Firestick does not support the Spectrum app, thus the Roku. The Roku seems to me to be much more sophisticated than the Firestick.
This coming Monday I will bring our new fiver home so I can do some pre-trip maintenance and systems checks and we can get it packed for the trip.
Our first stop Thursday will be at the Flying J in St. Augustine to fill up with diesel fuel and weigh the rig on the CAT Scale. I have downloaded the app on my cell phone and set up my account with them so the weigh should be quick and easy.
My plan is to do a daily update with pictures and videos to this blog, so I hope you follow along with us.
