The Shake Down Trip

Now that we are both retired, it is time to begin our next adventure. The camper is being packed, groceries are being bought, and the direction of the trip is being discussed. We leave on May 18th with excitement (and a little trepidation.) The trepidation is on my part as I watch the tornadoes and storms hitting in places we are planning to go through.

Our shake down trip was at Blackwoods Campground in Acadia National Park on May 1. The weekend temps were a little cool but the snow was gone (okay mostly gone as we saw a couple patches of snow) and the sun was shining brightly. The camper checked out all okay with a minor refrigerator problem that John has since fixed so we should be good to go.

The Daileys and Barkers celebrated with us for toasting to our upcoming trip.

View the slideshow below and come along for the ride as we travel state by state. We will post pictures and commentary as we go along and hope you enjoy reading about our adventures. Click on the arrow or each individual picture.
