Getting ready for a long season of travel

 Getting ready for a long season of travel

We're off for a long summer season of travel that will see us and our RV crisscrossing the country. We've spent the last couple of weeks getting the RV and ourselves ready.

That meant tire rotation and rebalancing, an oil change and new fuel filter, topped off fluids, safety checks and routine maintenance for the RV. We throughly cleaned our 2017 Roadtrek CS Adventurous XL 4X4, I added some new cameras, we planned out our route and Jennifer made sure we have a place to work out on the road.

Scroll down for a video that shows how we prepared:

We are now on then road and we promise to do our best to follow our 330 Rule of driving no more than 330 miles or stopping by 330 PM local time so we have some time to explore the area.

How will we do? We will try and do daily videos as we travel so you can follow along.

See you out there!
