On the Road with Sue: Zion National Park

Day One on the road has taught me that this trip may not really be about the destinations – it’s the journey. The breathtaking scenery we found driving through northern Arizona and southern Utah was overwhelming. I had recently asked a very well-traveled RVer (49 states in seven years) which was his favorite state to travel, and he immediately answered “Utah.” I was shocked, but now I see why. Fortunately, we live close enough to go back – many times, I’m sure.

On the Road with Sue: And So It Begins

Well, not exactly. We’ve loaded the rig, stored our car and motorcycle, and hit the road. We’ve traveled all of five miles out of town, and are camped for three nights in the local campground. The reason for all of this is that our house sitters have moved in to our house, but there’s a local event we want to attend. So we just moved into the rig.

On the Road with Sue: Planning for the Big Trip

Both my husband and I are somewhat experienced RVers. He’s owned both trailers and a motorhome in his past life, and I have worked in the RV industry for 35+ years, certainly taking my share of RV trips and stays. Nine months ago, we bought our first RV together – a 31’ fifth wheel, and since then, we’ve taken a number of weekend and vacation trips in it. But this time it’s different – we’re heading out on a 10 week trip, without a specific itinerary in mind.
