On the road, if barely
The day started early, about 5:30 a. m.. It was -27 and the diesel van showed no interest in starting. It was scheduled for a state inspection and oil change at 9:30 in town. By putting a small electric heater under the engine, and closing up the area with tarps, it warmed the engine enough for it to turn over.
It took about 12 hours to get the van loaded up and the house squared away. Finally, we hooked up the boat trailer and drove down the road -about 14 miles to my daughters house. We were too beat to put in any miles.
I also discovered the trailer had the wrong plug. I was so tired that I tried three times to make it fit before I noticed it was never going to happen. In the morning I'll cobble together an adapter.
My lovely wife and I took a good look at the weather forecast for our route to Texas. We decided Texas can wait. The current plan is to head directly to Florida. That way we do the Texas route in the spring when it's warmer. There should be more parks and sites open when we cut across the country back to home.
So we are all loaded up and the house is winterized. Once the plug is fixed we can head due south in search in warmer weather.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
