Well it’s Friday and I was up and had my coffee with Donna.Then she was off to the truck company and then the restaurant. I believe then she will be off until Wednesday morning.

Our company should arrive tomorrow, we are watching their progress as they blog west across Ohio, Indiana,& Illinois.They are taking it at a much more leisurely pace than I did last December when I raced a snowstorm home from Pa. and drove from 05:30AM EST until 07:00PM CST. 980miles in 14 1/2 hours. Needless to say I now look forward to all of our future journeys to be in the 300 mile max a day range where you can sit back and enjoy the ride.

Hopefully we will have a few pictures for tomorrows blog.

Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Its nice not to have to hit it so hard when your traveling,,,,But I love to drive and I love to get up early......I can hit the road at 7 or 7:30 and get 400 miles under my belts and be all set up by 4pm....Pieace of cake. In a few weeks I'll be doing just that headed to Tallahassee, FL to see kids, grandkida and great grandkids....ffun, fun, fun!!

  2. They are getting closer ~ bet you guys are excited too!
    Have fun

  3. Three hundred miles in a day is just about perfect!

  4. Okay - we need to have a talk. Even 300 miles a day is too many. But 980 is incredible. Even when we left Montana to outrun a snowstorm we didn't cover that much territory. Glad you made it okay. Just remember the 2-2 rule. 200 miles or 2:00 p.m. whichever comes first - then you stop for the night or week or month. Have a great time.

  5. I remember that race you did last year...don't EVER do that again...you have your home on wheels...Just pull over and get some rest.

  6. Ha! Our normal is 120 miles a day...! There is too much to stop and see!

  7. I remember you're blog about that trip home Sam and was happy to hear you'd made it safely.

    We generally like to travel about 200 to 250 miles in a day while rving.
