As you know we were in New Jersey for a few weeks and we’ll have some posts about some of the places we visited family including Amish country (Intercourse Pennsylvania). Even though it was a very somber trip we were able to find a bit of solitude and peace in the outdoors. After spending so much time there though we were ready to go home soon after some tearful goodbyes. Saying gooodbye to family is never easy but with our new life plan we’ll be able to see much more of them soon.
We hit the road Southbound in the mini van on Valentines day and intended to drive straight through til we got home but we stopped to visit a friend in North Carolina. After our visit we stopped for dinner at a steakhouse and got back on the road. Somewhere around midnight we both started getting tired but a hotel for a few hours would have been a waste so we opted to hit a rest area for a few hours.
South Carolina rest areas are posted with a 4 hour maximum so I set the alarm and crawled in my sleeping bag while Jo opted for a reclining seat. 4 hours came and went, before I knew it I was seeing a beautiful sunrise out the window and nobody had made us move. We cleaned up a bit and hit the road again. We stopped for breakfast at a great little restaurant called The Omelette Cafe which we’ll tell you about in our upcoming review page. From there we hit Savannah Ga for a bit which we’ll tell you more about soon too!
The night after I made the last post I started working on a few videos and went to bed. That night we received a phonecall that put everything on hold. Joannes mother passed suddenly and unexpectedly so we hit the road northbound as fast as possible. We are currently in New Jersey til at least Feb 12th and we will keep you all posted as much as possible. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayers.
So we’re still semi boondocking in a family members driveway and it’s a pretty easy commute to work. Yesterday I was going to run back to the RV and walk the dogs so I decided to take the bike. Last December I was finally lucky enough to get Six Bends Harley Davidson to finance my first ever Harley, a 2007 Softtail. Anyway when I went to start her up the battery was too low to start.
We had this same problem on our trip to Rainbow Springs after my alarm went off for part of the trip….. Mental note keep the fob on the trailer when hauling lol. Anyway I was going to make you a youtube video about this awesome portable jump charger we bought up there and jumped my bike right away.
So last night I grabbed my camera and the booster and started recording. Needless to say something went wrong and I didn’t get her started. When I tried again this morning I realized the booster had been set wrong and my bike was a victim of operator error. I’m going to finish the video soon as the booster recharges and I get the Harley running so keep your eyes open for our youtube channel coming soon.
In the meantime you can find more pics and adventures following me on
Ok guys and gals, JW here. Well at least thats one of my surnames/nicknames. Over the years my wife and I have had some pretty crazy adventures in life and captured many of them on film. Our latest adventure includes renovating a 1997 Holiday Rambler for some boondocking nomadic adventures while documenting it for you to enjoy with us.
We’ll be posting links to parks, BLM lands and youtube videos for you as well as awesome deals we run across for equipment, travel and entertainment too. We’ve already started our journey into the boondock lifestyle a bit so heres a few shots of what we’ve done so far.
Heres a link to the camera and some equipment we use for most of our outdoor and travel shots:
