In two days we will be celebrating a full year on the road in our 2022 Alliance 310. We thought we’d share with you some of the highlights and lowlights in a series of very short blog posts titled “How do you Measure a Year – of Travel?”
We have started a list of things to cover, such as how many miles we have driven, how many stops we have made, what lessons we have learned.
If you have any questions about our time on the road, drop them in the comments!
Here is our first one.
How many miles have we driven the rig so far?
We started out when we picked up our rig in Elkhorn, WI on March 14th, 2022. We have driven the rig just under 9,000 miles. While we tried our best to stay on interstate highways, there were occasional trips through small towns and through hills and valleys. There was even one turn around in a shopping center parking lot.
Tim drove the vast majority of these miles, but I have convinced him that I should be able to drive in case of an emergency, so I have done one leg from mid Florida to the panhandle and I’ll be taking the wheel from Abilene to Odessa, Texas next!
Those are just the miles of moving the rig while attached to our Ford F350. We got the truck a couple of months before we picked up the Alliance and it is our get around vehicle after we drop off the rig at an RV Park. It has taken us to many beautiful sites and on all of our errands! The truck has just over 30,000 miles on it so far!
