We spent the first 24 days of May still self-quarantining in Franklin, NC. Taking it week by week to see what is opening and where to go from here. On May 24th we finally said goodbye and drove over the Smokys to Tenessee to before continuing north into Kentucky. Our goal for this summer is still Maine!

New Clothes: $172.34

Our clothes bill has definitely increased living on the road. Obviously we now have to pay to wash our laundry but we also need to constantly purchase new clothes. It’s not that our clothes go bad, its that we do not have the appropriate clothes for the weather, hiking, etc… This could be just because we are from Arizona. Having a 6-year-old that’s growing like a week does not help.

RV Connectivity

$60 per month for Unlimited AT&T through OTR Mobile. This is truly unlimited (no throttling) and we use an average of 15 Gigs ber day! Our RV setup consists of a NETGEAR Nighthawk MR1100 SIM Card Router connected to two Proxicast High Gain, Wide-Band, Omni-Directional Antennas.
A writeup of our setup is coming soon!

We also bought a Thousand Trails membership… write up coming on that.
