On June 13, 2016, we took possession of our RV, Barney, from a dealership in Tupelo, Mississippi. After a couple days of learning about our new home, and learning how to safely drive it, we headed back to Virginia where we finished winding up our old life and preparing for our new one. We hit the road for real on August 3, 2016, heading up the east coast, with the intention of visiting my family and going to Acadia National Park. Our plans were derailed in Massachusetts when I broke my leg, leading to a three month encampment there. Once I was medically released, we high tailed it down the east coast to spend Christmas with Kevin’s family in St. Augustine.
2016 Travel Map
After spending the holidays in northeast Florida, we began making our way across the Florida panhandle, stopping in New Orleans, Galveston and our westernmost point, San Antonio. In order to be back in Virginia for a wedding in May, we’ll start curling back east, stopping in Kentucky and Tennessee during the spring. In June, we’ll head back up the east coast to visit the places we missed last summer.
