Westward Ho!

KARE Project update – Westward Ho Chapter

20140508_124338-1

Well, Spring has finally sprung and we finally left Florida . . . Westward Ho!  Our last week in Florida was very wet and it rained heavy three or four of those last days there . . . we were in Panama City Beach.  One of those last days it rained over 8 1/2 inches.  That was the day we discovered we had a leak in the roof.  I found water running down the wall in the bathroom . . . more like streaming down the wall.  We called Winnebago and they told us that the leak and any damage would be covered under our warranty . . . good thing but we needed to stop the leak now.  So not having any control of whether it rained or not we left.  It rained the day we left and it took us 1/2 the day to get out of the rain but finally blue skies south of Montgomery, AL. We stayed just outside Montgomery for an overnight and then headed west from there the next morning with bright blue sunny skies.

HomeySweetHomey
When we started out on our journey, we thought that it would be like all of our other trips, just better because it wouldn’t ever end.  As time went on though, we discovered that there are a few differences between taking a camping trip and full time RVing.  So we decided to take a moment and point out how you can tell if you are a full time RVer in true “Jeff Foxworthy” style… Continue reading

Waiting for Spring to come . . . .

Hope Everyone had a Happy Easter!!!!

Well, it’s been a few months since the last KARE Project update (KremerAmericanRvExploration Project).  I have always done my KARE updates through emails but since Happy Camper has been slacking in putting out a blog I decided to make my KARE updates into our blogs. Last we reported in February we were in Inverness, FL where we stayed for a couple of weeks before we moved a bit further south and east to Kissimmee, FL.  We met a very nice couple there . . . Torben and Nancy.  They were staying there while the house they just bought in Inverness was ready to close.  They have now since moved into their new house and we heard from them that they are enjoying it very much.  In Kissimmee we stayed for 6 weeks at a great park called Tropical Palms Resort.  We had stayed at this park last fall and enjoyed it a lot so we decided to stay again while we waited for Spring to come to the rest of the country.  Here was our “Homey” at Tropical Palms.

Houston, We Have a Problem… Our Visit to the Houston Space Center

Space Center
Last weekend we made the trek from Livingston, TX to Houston.  Our plan was to visit the space center in Houston after a stop at the Apple store.  Unfortunately what we were hoping was going to be a quick in and out visit to the “Genius Bar” to fix a boot up problem with my Mac turned into a five hour ordeal.  No space center for us!  It would have to wait.  This weekend we tried again and the mission was a success.
