Wayne and Margy's Snowbird RV Adventure

Wayne and I have been planning for our first Snowbird road trip in the new RV we purchased last April. It's a Forest River Sunseeker 2250 that we selected specifically for this adventure.

It's getting darker, colder and wetter at our float cabin on Powell Lake. Sun and warmth is calling. Just like the geese, we are migrating south.

I invite you to come over to my Margy Meanders Blog to follow along on our trip. Here's a preview of my first post to get you started.

The overall 24'4" length of the Sunseeker packs in a lot of living space.

An early November departure is perfect. We can beat snow and ice in the mountain pass between Oregon and California, and we can skip winterizing our RV. That's a win-win.

We've planned a three part trip.

Part 1 - takes us south from Bellingham, where we store our RV, to Southern California. We'll explore and camp along the way. In mid-December we'll put the RV in storage and go to USC for basketball. Then we'll fly back to Bellingham for a break.

Part 2 - starts in early February when we fly south to pick up our RV. We'll drive to Arizona for more exploring and a stay in Tempe for Arizona State University softball. Are you seeing a trend here? College sports? In late February we'll store our RV in Tucson then fly back to Bellingham for a second break.

Camping in public parks gives you more privacy and nature.

Part 3 - starts in late March. We'll fly to Tucson to pick up our RV for the final leg. There'll be more ASU softball before heading back north. We hope to make it to Oregon State University for more softball, and anticipate arriving back in Bellingham in mid to late April, after all of the freezing weather has passed.

Private RV parks offer more amenities and full hookups.

Does this sound complicated for a relaxing winter vacation? Maybe, but we aren't the kind of Snowbirds that like to stay in one spot. Our good friend John says we live a complicated simple life. But that's the way we like it.

Come along with us at my Margy Meanders Blog to see what's happening on our Snowbird RV Adventure. I'll write posts along the way when we have Internet. I hope you enjoy our trip as much as we do. -- Margy

  3. Margy - "a complicated simple life" - totally appropriate for you. I find complexity brings joy through different experiences. Looking forward to being on the ride with you both!

  4. We took our first RV trip in Alaska a few years ago and I was surprised at how much we enjoyed it. It was a 32 foot with our daughter, her husband and our two granddaughters. Later did the same in Arizona and had a great time. Your plans are so appealing.
