Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
So many years in planning and preparing Jeeps and Campers. We left yesterday and drove for almost 600 miles. Made it to the Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky. Camped on the lakeshore and woke up to this.

Now that’s a view to wake up to.

more to come. We will wheel the badge trails today, before heading to Hot Springs Arkansas.

That's great! Hope you guys have a blast! We used to go to LBL all the time when I was stationed at Fort Campbell. There are some great trails out there and the catfishing is pretty good too!

Once you get close to the border, watch your vehicles and gear closely. Always have someone awake in camp at night. I never travel south of San Antonio without a pistol anymore. The people crossing from Mexico are a different type lately.

Which route are you taking through Texas?

I echo others in that I'm jealous of your trip.

When the kiddos are gone and we can downgrade our trailer I want to live this life.

I am eagerly anticipating your updates on this journey. Kudos to you for working so hard towards what looks like will be an amazing and enriching retirement, and thank you for sharing it with us schmucks still grinding to get there!

Painfully and unfortunately true. Grew up in deep south Texas and have wonderful memories that unfortunately cannot be replicated today, it was a different world.

Subbing. Hopefully I have my gears fixed and through break-in by the time you get to Washington! We miss the UP soo much.

Yep. It’s kinda crazy down here right now. Most of those crossing illegally will give you no problems and actually want to avoid you. But there are now more than ever now will give you problems. You are going to see them because there are so many. The Border Patrol is overwhelmed, so only call them if you come across those who are aggressive or in some kind of danger themselves. Carry extra water in case you find some who are in real need of it.
