We peeped at prairie dogs and petted a puppy cousin, marked major milestones and made memories, and I’ve now got a rock solid reason to drink more wine in order to save money. Or at least get our money’s worth. You’ll see.
Here’s the summary of our 2nd quarter travels, mapped with a little help from Google.
RV miles traveled this quarter: about 2213
Kerrville & San Antonio, TX, April: April in Texas meant lots of things: Lots of bluebonnets, lots of waiting rooms, lots of special moments, and lots of hail.
Kerrville TX, May: We ended up working as camp hosts again (surprise!), watched our youngest nephew graduate from high school, and our younger son graduate from UT-Austin. Yay yay yay!
On the road, June 15-30: Outbound at last! We made some fun stops.
If you are interested in widening your overnight options to locations other than big box store parking lots — places like wineries, breweries, farms, golf courses, and museums — we recommend investing in a Harvest Hosts membership. If you use the link here in my post, you get 15% off, and we receive a little extra wine money. Thank you!
We cannot say enough good things about our first DRV owners‘ rally. Not only did we enjoy informative seminars, organized tours, a lot of catered meals, and personal interactions with members of DRV’s corporate team and other RV industry suppliers, we also spent invaluable time with new lifelong friends — and two of those couples have been following our adventures since before we traded in our old RV for this one!
Right now: We’re in Erie, PA, spending 4th of July week with 5 cousins, an auntie, and a new puppy (!) on Tim’s side of the family. So generous of one of them to offer up his nice big driveway for our moochdocking enjoyment, yes?
Where to next? We’re going right back to Indiana for our second round of warranty service at the DRV facility in Howe. Then we’ll head to the top right corner of the country, to check a few New England states off our list, including Maine for an Escapees Hangout in August. From there, we’ll be driving the diagonal alllllll the way southwest to San Diego for our autumn workamping gig. Crazy much?

We started full-timing in August of 2015, but I didn’t think to do an annual review until the end of 2016, and it was just a listing on Facebook of places we’d visited. After that, I started using a quarterly format.

Sounds like a very eventful quarter. Congrats on your new addition. What a cutie!
Just a borrowed one! She belongs to our cousins, but we intend to get our fill of puppy snuggles while we’re here.
It was great finally meeting you and Tim in person at the DRV rally! Congrats on the “all clear” cancer checkup, WOO HOO! All that running seems to be working. You’re the only person I know who can run from Indiana to Michigan and back all in one morning! 🙂 Wishing you both a great 3rd quarter as you venture East to West.

Hahahaha! I was telling my brother about my 2-state run, and he said he does the same thing when he gets sent to Omaha, NE, for work. A jog across the river takes him to Iowa.
Hope to meet up with y’all again soon. We’ll be back in Texas in the springtime!
