When asked by our good friends Ruth Ann and Frank if they could catch up on our plans by looking at the blog, I realized it had been "a while" since I'd updated our itinerary online...I guess the time HAS really flown, because, when I looked back I realized that "a while" was 5 months ago!  Our year is half past, we've both aged a year, fuel has increased about $2 a gallon since last year...and we can't believe that we've been living this incredible life on wheels for two and a half full years...and we're still loving every minute of it!   Because of the cost of fuel, we are scheduling very carefully - staying longer in each place, utilizing our membership campgrounds as much as possible to avoid paying for our campgrounds, and planning the direction of our travels for the most efficient combination of miles driven and membership campgrounds utilized.

So, here's what's ahead for us the rest of this 2008:
