Do We Stay, or Do We Move?

Staying at Joint Base Charleston, SC
We originally planned to be in Charleston, SC for 7 days. We've now been here 53 days, following the self-isolation guidelines. We know we're very lucky to have been able to stay at the military campground here, as we have full hook-ups, free WiFi (we don't use it), shopping near by, and are very secure. They closed the campground shortly after we arrived, but they allowed existing campers to stay...

At least y'all were lucky enough to be "stuck" in one of our nicer FamCamps. If we were you we'd take the attitude, 'a bird in the... Read More

Living an "Isolated" Life

Joint Base Charleston RV Park, SC
After arriving at the Joint Base Charleston in South Carolina 22 days ago, the COVID-19 situation in the USA got a lot more serious. After only a few days of arriving, we got word that the RV Park was closing. Soon, other military campgrounds, state parks, and federal campgrounds were announcing that they were also closed. This sent our heads spinning. Since we live in our motor home, we needed so...

Plans are Flexible

Just a quick update... After we arrived at the Joint Base Charleston RV Park, SC, we visited downtown Charleston for a quick visit. We just walked around a historic area of Georgian row houses, avoiding people. Many of the row houses from the mid-1600's have been renovated. It was an interesting walk. But it was the next day that news on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the USA quic...

Finally - Traveling North

Camp Blanding, Starke, FL
These past few weeks haven't been very exciting. No sightseeing for us. While waiting for RV service, we've mostly been working on our software development for a client. They made some last-minute changes and the software has to be ready for delivery by mid-April. Staying put ended up being a good thing and we're back on track for an on-time delivery. While we only planned for a one week stay, our...

New Happy Wanderers Video

Kaylee, Khloe, and Leslie
 I've been playing around with creating and editing videos. In addition to this Blog, I thought I might try making some more videos of our travels and experiences while living and traveling full-time in our motorhome. We'll see how that goes, and hopefully they'll get better. So here's Episode 1 of The Happy Wanderers videos. Let us know what you think of the idea on making travel videos.
