Family visit (Badenweiler, Germany)

Journal entry for Friday 17th Mar, 2017 (day 3, miles 69782)

Today we had a specific destination, the village of Badenweiler, which is located in the Black Forest and is known for its thermal spa. There is a nice campground in the town (that we have stayed in previously) and it is close to where our son and fiancee live (when not in Berlin). We plan on staying in Badenweiler 5 days or so for a "family catchup".

Back in Europe II (Kettenheim, Germany)

Looking over the map last night we discovered that our overnight spot was close to another jumbo supermarket and so once underway this morning that was our first stop.

Back in Europe (Venlo, Netherlands)

Journal entry for Wednesday 15th Mar, 2017 (day 1, miles 69610)

We flew into Amsterdam last night and stayed in an airport hotel to allow some of the jet-lag to wash away and then this morning took a train to Eindhoven and taxi to our friend Erik's place (the power behind adventure-trucks.com) in the little village of Sint-Michielsgestel where our yellow GXV has been stored for more than a year.

The doomed trip II

Posted Sunday 26th Feb, 2017

Tuesday morning 21st Feb we departed Rancho Colina at 7:00 am to make our way to Dyers RV Repair in San Luis Obispo. Kathy and Rick Howe followed us in their car just to make sure we had support if anything unpleasant happened along the way; like that bolt finally falling out and the camper body being set somewhat adrift from the chassis. However no disasters ensued and we arrived at Dyers a little before they opened.

A doomed trip

Posted Monday 2nd Jan, 2017

After returning from Lima we spent a little while at our house in WA catching up on business and imposing ourselves on our friend Todd who rents our house from us. Not wanting to outstay our welcome we decided that we would take our trusty Earthroamer south for the month of Feb with the goal of escaping from the rain and snow of Washington and also give Todd a break from us.
