Updated 8/8/20 – It has almost been a full year since we sold our house and moved into our fifth wheel full time. If you are just now starting to learn about our travels or looking into RVing full time, please read about the many disasters that slapped us in the face before we started.
Well, it was an eventful first year. We spent late October to April on the road and came back to Montana early because of COVID-19. There were many challenges along the way, but all in all — I LOVED IT!
Even though the flu season is worse than ever before and the strain is not going to leave without a fight, we plan to continue our journey exploring the U.S. and looking for a place to buy land. Now that we know “masking up” is the answer to staying healthy, we will just keep our hankies in our pocket when we hit the road again next month.
Last year we traveled to 21 states. We are planning a reverse path this year to spend more time in the places we couldn’t. When you look at our Google map, you will see the teal squares as the places we visited last year and green flags with the places we want to hit this year.
Our Running from Winter Route for 2020
We plan to head through Yellowstone Park and into the Grand Tetons. We won’t hang around and check out the sites. It’s too much with all the traffic during the summer. We are just looking for a pretty drive.
As we learned last winter. We love Utah. Such a surprise to us. We will head to Moab for about a week and then head to southern Utah near St. George. It is a more costly area so we will have to offset the cost by boondocking some. We will explore the Narrows at Zion and Bryce Canyon. We will be here for at least a month.
St. George Utah: Avg. Temp in October 79° / 53° & November 63° / 40° (rain 2 days)
I fell in love with Lake Havasu. It was hard to be there without a boat. However, this trip we are bringing our kayaks so we can hit up the lake for a bit that way.
