It was nearing the end on May and time to move on. My friend, Louise, who I have been caravanning with needed to be in Indiana by May 6 and I was headed for PA. However, after traveling I 95 back and forth from FL to PA with my husband, when we lived in FL, I decided to take a more scenic route? After a few nights Walmarting
while traveling on route 27 going around all the big cities, up through the mountains in West Virginia, ending on I 81 in Shippensburg, PA, I visited with some family there. It was a nice trip and a new experience for me on the 5 & 6% grades. I wanted to try the grades out since I am planning to travel out west in a few months and wanted to test out my rig and Tow vehicle. I understand they have pretty many grades out there. I am glad to say I had no problems. But I will be using the Truckers Atlas & the rand macNally motor carrier atlas to avoid them when possible. The less wear and tear on "The Freedom and Tahoe" the better.
I am back in PA now staying with my son for a few weeks and enjoying kids, grandkids, great grands and family. My brother-in-law and nephew are doing some work on the "Freedom" for me. I will have the solar panels installed in about 10 days and will let you know how that goes. Then I will spend the month of June with my daughter and her family.
That's all for now. Safe travels to my blogger and RV friends. And Family - it's good to be home with you. Love to all.
