Down to Hours!

Location: Catskill, NY (High 47, Low 37)

To say there’s a little excitement around here is an understatement. Tomorrow is departure day!! And the weather looks decent – tomorrow, and for the rest of our trip this week. If all goes well, we will be heading out tomorrow morning for PA. By the end of the week, we will be stopping in South Carolina for a little over a week. Just looked at the long range forecast for South Carolina, and those highs and lows look…oh, so nice!!

Yesterday was a bit more low key. We stopped over to my sister’s for a quick visit, and Harry took the pressure pro sensors off the tires before our trip for service today. We were going to try to sell the car before we left, but decided not to cram one more thing into this few days. So we left the car at my sister’s office and took the plates off. We will sell it this summer when we get back here.

Today we have a bunch of errands to run in Albany. Harry is enjoying the thought this morning that he doesn’t have to go to work, but we are still getting going at the same time. We are both looking forward to being down in South Carolina and having some time to relax and hang out! Won’t be long now!!

We leave TOMORROW!!

  10. Wishing you guys a wonderful adventure on the road. You've made it through some rough NYS winter weather as full-timers so I imagine you can deal with whatever weather you encounter. And, aren't you lucky that we've gotten these balmy temps today so you can run around getting all those last minute things taken care of. I'm looking forward to your reports of your travels as you head south. Sure hope you post things about your route and campground reviews since we're planning on heading to FL in March. I can see the Thruway from my window, so toot the horn when you get between exits 20-19. I'll watch for your rig driving past-lol.Safe travels...Lynn, Kingston NY
