are several maps on this page. Each map represents a different year of our RV travels - some longer than others, but all were an adventure! Be sure to visit our Current Weblog to read about our trips. If you are on your own journey, we hope that you will find some of our stories helpful in choosing your own destinations. We've received a lot of great recommendations ourselves, and hope to pass on some too.
As of April 1st, 2007 we were the proud owners of a Datastorm (til we sold the RV in 2009). Whenever you wanted to know where we were, you just needed to look up our location on the DatastormUsers Map. We were Dish #4822. As of Sept 2009, that is no longer active.
Our Trek (2009):
RV Odometer Start: 33,420 - 35,980
Ele Odometer Start: 45,474
This year I started playing with Microsoft Live Maps to see if it would be a better choice. I can't find a way to show an image of the Live Map, so you'll have to click on a link for it instead. The big difference between the two maps is that the Live Map shows the RV Parks where we stayed with a quick review, where the map above just shows our driving route.
This year we stayed at home. We took a couple of weekend trips only. For stories of our trips and our year in general, please visit our blog. This map shows the places we visited.
Every year that we have an opportunity to travel, we make it our goal is to visit new states or see new places. This year (2007), however, will be more of a challenge since we're heading West again. From the beginning we found ourselves on the same roads, and twice in the same campgrounds. We'll just have to try harder!
Our Trek (2007):
RV Odometer Start: 23,290 End: 32,411
Ele Odometer Start: 30,731 End: 38,182
Our Trek Around Florida (2006):
RV Odometer Start: 21,944 End: 23,277
Ele Odometer Start: @28,000 End: 29,480
2006 and we are getting ready to go back on the road short-term
(planning on just traveling Florida for the present time).
I started to look at these maps (routes from 2004/2005) and get
ideas for where we might want to go in 2007, when I found a map
that I could 'click' on to select the states we've already visited.
Thought this would be easier to see (at-a-glance) which states we've been to in our RV.
Our Trek (2005):
RV Odometer End: 21,670
