It’s been only a week since our last long haul of 650 miles/15 hours and we’re already gearing up for another. We’re gluttons for punishment apparently. Fed up is an understatement when it comes to how we feel about driving all day!

However, sometimes it is necessary to make quick work of the many miles that separate us from our end destination – and now is one of those times. We’re leaving Chico, California where we’re visiting family to go visit more family and spend the Holidays in Seattle, Washington.

This will be the first time spending Winter in the north since we hit the road as full time RVers. As many of you know we’ve avoided cold and snow like the plague by snowbirding each Winter down in the comfortable dryness of the Arizona and California deserts. This year however, we’ll be spending most of Winter in the exact opposite climate – cold and wet Seattle.

Before we get there though we’ve got one last long RV travel day to battle through!

    Traveling with so many animals really up the stress level. You kids are a great team.

    Fed up with your 20-30 minute long videos. I like watching you guys but do you look at your stats? I would watch more if these were quicker.

    I have had a cold for two days, (not covid!) and have binge watched your videos all day. We just got a 19rbs Vintage cruiser and your thoughts and adventures have been note worthy. Literally not e worthy, I filled up a pad……anyway…I am 62 and my hubbie and I have never done trailer at all. To us trailers are for people who just don't really like camping…we are hypocrites….you two are adorable. I have been geeking out on the whole solar, dry camping, thang…..I have learned a new language….that is how you stay young learning new things…….

    Old trucker here first check your seat position you need to be upright sitting high legs at a 90ish angle to the pedals this relieves pressure on your spine allowing you to move your feet wiggle your toes keep doing this every little bit so your moving your muscles and blood around !!!
    Then aline your mirrors for best effects clean your glass inside an out mirrors too!!! Then lay in some simple snacks the lays potato chips in the tubes work well for holding mixed nuts and m&m's cereal ,, along with some drink type of fluids now begin your travels with a smile keep it there on your face !!!! as the little old lady cuts you off short the moron that has to pass you on the right as the lanes narrow down to 1 lane mother nature takes a dump on your route and of course Mr Murphy gives you a visit !!! You will arrive in great humor with grand stories to tell anyone that is near !!! LOL
    Hard rule never to be broken by either of you when your body says rest sleep you are to park rest even for a couple of hours instead of commiting suicide on the grill of my truck I've been driving for over 36 YEARS I don't wish to see anymore bodies scattered on the highways bad enough I've witnessed the bodies coming out of parked tractors us old truckers die sometimes alone an forgotten by all but the delivery that is late !!!

    How about a litter pan or box in the truck, it doesn't have to be huge. Or in the case of my cats, they decide not to pee when i'm traveling. They hide instead.

    I can't believe that you didn't take your time and drive up the Oregon coast highway 101. We drive over 2,000 miles almost every year to make that trip. There are so many things to see it's like visiting Yosemite Yellowstone the Florida keys and Disneyland all at once. There are whales and sea lions, seals and a couple aquariums. I have posted videos of wildlife along this route that I have taken with my thermal camera.

    Put the route in Google maps and click on "attractions along the way" and if you go north to south all the pull offs are on your right. Parking overnight has never been a problem and waking up to the sounds of the waves crashing below and looking out over the Pacific Ocean is the experience of a lifetime.

    There is the tillamook air museum, and when you are about to hit the California line you can swing over and visit Creater Lake.

    I prefer long R&B travels days. Ray Charles and James Brown approve of this message.

    You may already be gone from The Big Wet (btw, I'm in The Big Easy) but if you are moochdocking or plugged in somewhere, run your main A/C unit. That will dehumidify the RV faster than anything else.

    Why would anyone pulling a bedroom behind them not stop halfway and sleep?

    Never drive that long. Takes all the fun out of traveling. Do 250-300 miles max (5-6 hours) then stop for the day. Swap drivers ever 2 hours. Try to be off the road by 5PM so you can get a good camp spot. When we have a long way to go we rest a day in between travel days. You arrive rested, refreshed and ready to enjoy. Easier on the pets as well.

    With cats, if not fed on a regular schedule time wise, acid builds up in their stomach in anticipation of food coming and often they will vomit after feeding. Also, when they eat too fast. 🙁 This is what I have read, anyway. Enjoy your videos! Maybe someday it will be the hubby and I! 😊

    Wait till you have kids that get carsick after a long drive, it's worse, way worse.

    We do RV trips with two house cats and have traveled across country several times with them. We have found that our cats would not take litter box breaks when we stopped for an hour long lunch break. We used to let them out of their carriers so they could get some water, food and use the litter box, but they chose to hide instead while we had out lunch. So, now we limit our road time to no more than 8 hours per day. The cats can tell when we have set up the RV to camp overnight and they wait until everything is set up before they use the litter box, drink and eat. Really, they do choose wait this long.

    We have found that shorter travel days gives us plenty of daylight to set up camp, to make minor repairs, to cook dinner and to watch a DVD. And we can have a leisurely start the next day with time to cook a good breakfast, take showers and break camp in the daylight. Long travel days are very tiring and the opposite of the pleasant RV travel we want to have. I recommend you either allow more days of travel to get to your destination or just do not travel so far away from home so you can keep your road time to a reasonable length each day. You will be less tired and your cat will be happier.

    That's a long trek. Yes, I've driven it. Now that I am the only driver, I have to limit to 300 miles, more would be deadly. As it is, I've gotten good at the 20 minute nap.
    Hope you had a great holiday, sounds fun but busy.

    If I need to get an early start you bet I'm gassing up the night before. One less thing to do in the morning.

    I thought that life style was whatever, whenever, these folks make it sound like a job, I never understood all the animals in a small space, animals need to roam

    Heyy! How many miles on your truck and how has it held up? Looking at an '06 Chevy Duramax…thanks!

    Great video. Days like this you could really use the TSD RV fuel card. It would have saved you some on diesel fuel…
