I’m baaaaack! Did you miss me?😄 The Great Road Trip of 2021 is officially in the books. This trip was originally planned for the Fall of 2020 but with COVID and everything, including campgrounds, shutting down, we postponed it until this year. This was the longest trip we’ve ever taken with a travel trailer. We were were on the road for 28 days from September 7th to October 4th.
Over the course of the trip we covered 12 states (including our home state of Georgia), and a total of 4,856 miles. States visited:
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- West Virginia
- New York
- New Hampshire
True, some of those states were only overnight stays but that all it takes for us to get a new sticker on the map. (My rule: if we don’t overnight in the state, we don’t get a sticker.) We changed our route back to give us a chance to overnight in a couple of states that we otherwise would not have. Even just overnighting in a state gave us a chance to see a new-to-us part of the country. Looking at our updated map makes me feel very accomplished, LOL.
I took my laptop with me so I could work on blog posts and the short story release I had planned for October. (I write under the pen name Isabella Norse.) I never took the laptop out of the closet, LOL. I spent my time just relaxing and enjoying the trip. I’ll spend the next few weeks sharing details. In the meantime, I’m glad to be back home and am busily getting caught up on all of the things that accumulated while we were away.
Until next time, happy trails!

I very much look forward to reading about your trip. We have not visited many of the states on the east coast, especially the mid and northern section. I’m glad you just enjoyed it and didn’t work on your laptop. The longest we have ever gone is 19 days. I could do 28 days though! We have the same “sticker” rule – we must stay overnight in order for the committee to award the sticker. Enjoy being home!

That was some trip! I would love to go to upstate NY, Maine and Vermont–maybe someday. Now I understand why you are catching up on blog posts. 🙂

The northern states are so pretty! New York, New Hampshire, and Maine were my favorites.
