I’ve been RVing since 1995 and love it, though not full time as you are doing. I’ve seen some freezing on the roads that was very frightening and without much advance notice. I commend you for taking the kids on such a trip. It will be so educational for the children. Happy hunting in finding your ancestry! Be safe. Maggie

If you keep an eye on the local Cleveland weather stations you should get plenty of advance warning if Mother Nature decides to get cranky. We have something called “Lake Effect” snow where the moisture comes over Lake Erie and gathers steam until it dumps tons of snow on the eastern counties – Ashtabula, Lake and Geauga in particular. The folks who live in those areas are pretty used to seeing lots of white stuff which happens until the lake freezes.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us! Pat

The kids love learning about wherever we are. What a great idea to focus on your family history too. If you want to meet other RVing families as you travel, find fulltime families. Our kids have wonderful friends we meet up with in different states. :)

By: LGroup2220@aol.com Tue, 13 Nov 2012 18:49:13 +0000 Sounds fun. We have only ventured out on a two month trip in the fall – also
to research family history. We overnighted in many Walmart, Lowe’s, Cabela, Sam’s Club parking lots. But as we approached the east coast – found that it is not allowed in many cities.
The negative for us then, was the distance we had to drive to get to a campground – far away from the libraires, historical societies we wanted to visit. I am always concerned about pipes freezing when the temp drops, but maybe the newer RV’s have some magic way of preventing that. Our’s is ancient. GPS was helpful in some cases – not in others. Was not good about taking the height of our Rv into consideration (underpasses). We just ordered a small solar panel that is
for the purpose of charging cell phones.
Found that when sitting in one spot for
several days with no hook ups can be
interesting– especially when our generator was on the fritz. I think one of the best parts of our trip was the wonderful people – so helpful, so friendly – restores my faith in this country. Continue to have a great time – and continue to keep us informed
