Took a nice trip in May-June 2018 from California to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Took 6 weeks and visited friends and relatives along the way. Here are some quick pictures. I learned several things along the way...
- I can do better in MPG without Cruise Control (Avg 13.7mpg)
- Most expensive diesel was $4.35 (didn't buy it).
- Least expensive diesel was $2.35 in Alabama.
- Do NOT lubricate the bearings on a trailer too frequently. :-/
- The BEST campgrounds are remote and labled as "campground/camping"
- The WORST campgrounds are labeled as "RV Park." Too many perms.
- The BEST highway conditions are in Nebraska
- The WORST highway conditions are in Michigan
- The BEST food was in Wisconsin
- The WORST food was in Virginia.
- Hardest rain was in Pennsylvania.
- Hottest day was in Nevada. (122)
- Coldest day was in Maine. (34)

Here is a video of the SS Badger departing from Ludington Michigan on its way across Lake Michigan to Manitowoc. Its the last of the coal fired ferries.

I wasn't sure how to go about posting this or if I was allowed to just do it. If this violates the format for this section, then please feel free to remove it.

Last year (2017) Yoly and I traveled 8,700 miles from Georgia to British Columbia and back. I made a couple Introductory videos to introduce the Playlist before final editing of all the videos was completed. This Playlist basically documents our journey on a day by day basis with each day producing its own video. Hope people find it interesting.
