Getting ready to leave

We have spent almost 5 months at our winter location of Destiny RV in Goodyear AZ and cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. When we started full-timing we had no idea that we would stay any one place for this long but the winters here are so nice, plus it is great to recharge after spending 7 months moving every week or two. Those 7 months provided us with a lifetime of vacations but as October rolled around we were pretty much ready to be back here.

We also realized that we have not been blogging as much as we do on the road but that is to be expected. Our big days here are eating breakfast out and going to our home away from home - Wal-Mart, or other shopping. We did some sightseeing while here but mostly spent it enjoying the weather and the good restaurants and some of the park activities.

We are making sure we leave here with a pretty good pantry and other supplies. We like the Viva paper towels so got a bunch of those today along with cat litter and some stuff for the pantry. We also made sure if we could we got our prescriptions since that is sometimes fun while on the road. We usually end up in places with a Wal-Mart so we can restock along the way. Bob will put everything up outside the day before we depart but there is more here than normal since we have been here so long.

Bob is scoping out our travels and it looks like another great year. We will spend time near Prescott AZ then Lake Powell then Bryce Canyon National Park then Salt Lake City. We will add Idaho as a state and stay in Idaho Falls. Also adding Montana we will stay in West Yellowstone and visit Yellowstone National Park and then in Billings. There is another stop in Montana and a couple in North Dakota (adding that as a state visited also) that have to be figured out then it is in to Canada for Bob's fishing trip. After Canada we will spend the summer on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota. We will stop in Iowa and the KC area in the fall and then back to Goodyear AZ for the winter in early November for an appointment.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Safe travels. It sounds like an exciting year ahead:)

  2. Great itinerary you've got for the summer!

  3. When do you think you'll be coming into Montana. We'll be in Billings about the middle of June through the first week or so of July and then over to Helena for a couple of months.

  4. I'm planning a trip tht i only a few weeks long, and that is kinda fun.
