We're picking up our Ollie (hull #488) on July 3 after a fast 4-day, 36 hour drive from Oregon. It just occurred to us that we may be running into full campgrounds, dodgy weather and recent flooding as we make our way west for the return trip. So far we've got reservations at Davey Crockett SP July 3 and Natchez Trace SP and July 4 to make sure all Ollie systems are checked out before we leave Tennessee. We're unfamiliar with camping in Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and are concerned about the recent flooding and storms that may have knocked out many campgrounds. Does anyone have suggestions on where to camp en route? We're shooting for spending a few weeks in Northern New Mexico/Southern Colorado before returning to Oregon. What kind of daily mileage do you recommend for someone new to towing? Many thanks, ahead of time, for your advice.
My wife and I are building a garage on a vacant lot in the Florida panhandle. Our plan is to store all our personal possessions in this building while we travel all over the country. I am told we need to purchase commercial insurance because we do not live there nine months per year and there is no house built on the lot as yet. The structure is 2x6 frame w/ threaded rods for hurricane and wind, all plywood sheathing roof and sides, metal roof, and cement-based siding (like Hardiboard). The windows are impact resistant with wooden shutters. The structure is built like a tank and climate controlled. Does anyone have any ideas how to go about getting affordable insurance for our building and contents? The quote we got was quite ridiculously high and I need some guidance. Surely we are not the first people to build a base camp for our RV. We have sewer, water hookup, and 30 amp service.
