2019 Summer RV Plans

Before I start on our upcoming trip, there is one other change that has recently happened to our family. If you remember, one of the unfortunate things that happened to us was the accidental death of our dog Montana. Those of you that have pets know that they become part of the family and are really missed when they are gone. Montana had traveled over 23,000 miles with us, and it just didn’t seem the same traveling without him. We had planned to get a new puppy in the summer after Montana was hit by the truck, and we had actually picked one out. A beautiful Australian Shepherd from a breeder in North Carolina. However, Liz’s accident resulted in us cancelling the new puppy. Well, once Liz recovered we decided to go ahead and still get a puppy. We contacted the same breeder and on January 22nd we picked up our new little girl, Brandy. We decided on the name Brandy because of the song by the same name. Some of the song’s lyrics contain the words, “She’s a fine girl with eyes that would steal a sailor from the sea”. We thought that really described her. She will never replace Montana, but she will be with us as we all start a new chapter in our lives.

  1. Hi Steve,
    I just ran across your posts. I am so glad to hear that Liz is re-cooperating so well. I can’t imagine what you two have experienced through this ordeal.
    I agree with your sentiments on half-timing. As much as Angel and I enjoy traveling, we still enjoy coming home and after a short period of time get that excitement to get back on the road. Our road trips usually last around 6 weeks. We made the NE loop in reverse order from your trip. We went up the coast to Bar Harbor over to Niagara Falls and then south. I loved Niagara Falls and Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. Don’t miss the little bakery in Bar Harbor and their blueberry pie!!!!!!! We take delivery of our new DS in July so we’ll be traveling out West to Utah and the 5 National Parks there in Sept/Oct. Would love to see you guys again.

    1. Allen,
      It’s great to hear from you and Angel. We are doing well and enjoying the start of our trip. We have had a few “whoops” moments but nothing that we couldn’t overcome. I’ll probably talk about them in our next post. We are looking forward to our trip to the Northeast. Liz is from MA so we have traveled in that area quite a bit, but haven’t been to Maine very much. Thanks for the tip on Bar Harbor. We have a little over a week stay there. Neither of us have been to Niagra Falls since being kids so we are looking forward to that too.

      Congrats on your new DS. I’m curious as to why you decided on another DS so soon? We are happy with our Ventana so far. It’s provided good service with only minimal issues. Of course I would like a ne London Aire but I don’t think that is going to happen. Enjoy your trip out West. We love it out there and Utah is on our bucket list.

      Please keep in touch and safe travels to you both.

      Steve and Liz
