Right now I'm helping a good friend work on his property in VA., with 16 acres there will always be lots to do. We are also building a Ginny Coo[\p for a new generator that he purchased, for thoise days that the power goes out; frequent here in the country.

Will not take the trailer up to New England as I have to make long mileage on a couple of days, and not sure about towing on all the narrow roads. I will be traveling for only a couple of days, staying with friends, so it won't be to bad. When I get back to VA. I will pick up the trailer and head south. First to pick up my wife in N.C. the on to S.C. and then taking our time down the East Coast to Miami. So there is a lot more to come, and I will keep people updated.

We have been having a great time visiting friends and staying State and County parks along the East Coast. Many beautiful places to visit, and we will be back to see many places that we don't have time for on this trip. We have toured some of the parks that we would like to return to visit.

We are now in Jacksonville, visiting friends, and will leave here Monday to go to Hutchington SP near Tampa. We will be there a couple of days before heading to the Miami. Not sure where we will stay when we are there, but are going for a wedding.

The truck and trailer have performed without a fault. Very glad that I checked and serviced things before we got underway. I think doing the work in advance and not having surprised along the way is a much better way to go.

After Miami I will be headed to San Antonio, to check in with friends and our accountant, then we will drive back to Prescott, AZ. When we get home we will have completed about 8,000 miles. I will report on gas mileage, the parks we visited, and other things that we found during our 7 weeks on the road. Yes we have covered a lot of miles in a short time, but that is life.
