Our Rv adventure, sunsets, gas price & problems as we travel to the West Coast!!


We have made it to our final destination, Washington state!! Yay! As we traveled across the country to get here we went thru 12 states, hopefully I didnโ€™t miss any but they included New Hampshire, Massachusets, New York, Pennsylvania,, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minneapolis, North Dakota, Montana & finally Idaho!!

What a joy it was to cross all those states!! Well. mostly, there was one day we drove what seemed like all day & I just wanted the movement to stop so I could sleep!! Itโ€™s not fun trying to sleep in the back bedroom of a moving vehicle!! Hahahaha but we had an amazing time driving across the U.S. in our Rv ๐Ÿ™‚ we stopped at two excursions! Our excursions included Niagara Falls State Park & Theodore Roosevelt National Park!! We took advantage of Walmartโ€™s policy that allows for boondocking ๐Ÿ™‚ staying in their parking lot!! It feels weird & awesome to be able to shower then walk out of your RV to shop!! Hahaha

Rv mishaps

So at one of our stops along the way my husband decided to change the steering stabilizer, It was rusty & the Rv seemed to go all over the place when a big rig went by!! Amazingly it made a huge difference!! So glad he did that!!

So after overhearing in Massachusets, this was the only other problem we had along the way! Weโ€™re so glad Both things were not big deals! We are so relieved things have worked out thus far!!

Gas situation

So when we initially planned this roadtrip gas prices were reasonable, since then we all know prices have gone up in everything including gas!! So to our surprise prices were less expensive the further we moved from Maine!! It was 5.20 even at one point but in the middle of the U.S. prices are still under 5 dollars ๐Ÿ™‚ wonderful we thought!!

So here we are in washington & prices are much higher & even higher than they are in Maine!! Oh well!! We paid $5.399 the other day ๐Ÿ™‚

We are getting about 10mpg when we go about 55mph ๐Ÿ™‚ So as we travel along we will get there, we will just be alittle behind the average vehicle ๐Ÿ™‚ another thing we noticed is outside the city after Chicago there were fewer cars on the road ๐Ÿ™‚ could be gas prices who knows but it felt weird at times!!

So far weโ€™ve used about 421 Gallons of gas total, at a cost of $2054.97 which includes our trip to Rim Rock ๐Ÿ™‚ we are using an app called Fuelly to track our progress & fuel spending ๐Ÿ™‚ letโ€™s hope gas prices drop alittle for us all ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Here are pics of some of the views we seen along the Way!! It was gorgeous!! I especially loved seeing the sunsets in Minnesota, those are pictured here!!!

Im a mother, blogger and have come to enjoy the wonderful outdoors living in Maine for over 20 yrs!! Its been a whirlwind of change and never ending projects at our homes that helped me see the need to be physically active and work towards healthy eating, and a balanced mind!! My passion in life is inspiring others to make good changes, besides getting out and exercising what has helped me is the bible and its message of hope :) My Blog is all about the many projects in life we have, the good eats-food (vegetarian, and vegan included) that im cooking up in the kitchen, and the gorgeous nature inspiration: all of which helps me feel happy!! I love sharing with you!! follow along & be inspired!!
