Where Are We Now?

Home Four - Our First Full Park - OVERFLOW

Publish Date: 
Seaside RV Park | Tracy Marie Lewis

We only had a 40 minute drive into Oregon for our next stop. So far we've not made any reservations. We tend to be more spontaneous and haven't adopted the 3 week schedule that so many Thousand Trails members who full time use. Our membership allows us to stay in a single park 21 days, then we have to move to a different park (it can be a Thousand Trails property) for 7 days, then we can come...

Home Three - Very Nice For Walking

Publish Date: 

Having no internet at our rig makes keeping up on our travels a challenge. I am amazed at how little we actually accomplish each day. Without fail, we workout as our health was a primary reason for taking this journey. There isn't enough space for us both to work out and the space we use doubles as my office space. We work out first thing so we can roll up the workout mat and slide my desk in...

Home Three And We are Finally Too Far To Easily Visit Family | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We finally decided we'd prepared all that we could and it was time to leave our home base area. For our first journey far from home, we chose a 4 1/2 hour drive to the Thousand Trails near Long Beach. Of course it was dumping rain when we arrived and most spots were under water. We chose a spot that looked like it would not pool any water on the door side of the trailer. It did have a small...

Our Second Home - Strange With No Cell Or Internet At Our Spot

Our New Home In LaConner | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We moved from Birch Bay Thousand Trails down to LaConner. What a difference. It is like night and day between the two locations. Each has its plusses and minuses. Birch Bay was flat and had major water issues. We chose a pull through spot on a hill this time. We did choose a sewer spot again which has been lovely.

We've now been here over a week and the biggest issue is lack of cell or...

Travel Report - Through Day Four

Saw Sweetie On Day Three | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Our first days have been spent getting ourselves organized. We have experienced some unforeseen issues with using our broadband data. 1. Steam is a gaming platform that rocks, but it also auto-updates in the background and 2. OneDrive is the devil! I only sync a few folders but made the mistake of switching to DHs login and voila - 2 gig eaten up in short order before I realized that his...

We've Finally Embarked On Our Journey!

Our First Camp Spot! | www.stuffnthingz.com

We finally saw a window of opportunity to leave on Thursday 3/23. It was the ONLY low rain % in the forecast, and it was 20% at that. But we figured we were ready enough. Even though this felt like prepping for a long vacation, it wasn't. We were prepping to bring all of our responsibilities and lives with us on this journey so the packing was somewhat different.

We left some of our...

The Beginning Of Where Are We Now

Our travelling home in the very cold weather | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

January 27th will mark the last day of work for me. I am retiring from Corporate IT work. We've been working toward this for some time. Last year we bought our lovely new fifth wheel trailer and an older truck to tow it with. Shortly thereafter we sold our primary residence of 15 years. I had hoped to stay with my employer through a transition from our very old web platform to the new one we'...
