For some reason, we keep leaning towards a trip to Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina for our 2016 road trip. We initially thought about heading up the Midwest or Northeast to pick up more states, but a relaxing week or 2 on the east coast sounds really good. There is a ton to see in both cities, a lot of history, which we like. We can even stick out toes in the ocean at Tybee Beach, go see the rich folks on Hilton Head Island, and even get wet at Folly Beach. There are plenty of campgrounds in that area, even some great state parks. This will be much cheaper and more relaxing than a jaunt to Maine and back. We'll see how it goes as summer approaches.
We're about ready to install a microwave in the van. It will just be a small off-the-shelf model from Amazon or Walmart, and we'll build a frame around it to secure it. The RV specific units are 3 times the price just because they claim to be for RVs. Sorry Camping World. This installation will also allow us to finish the upper cabinets. We'll probably order custom doors off eBay once the framing and covering is all done. Making decent looking doors is hard, and they are only $10 each on eBay.
We are so ready for winter to be over. It has been very mild thus far but still, the cold weather really limits what you can do outside. Even cooking a steak on the grill is no fun when a biting wind is nipping at you. Winter is tough on RVers, but you know what they say...
