2019 Travel Log

 

This page is our travel log for the year 2019. This way our family and friends can see where we visited and stayed at throughout the year as well as future confirmed reservations on where we will be staying or are planning to be staying at. We will update this page as we travel or should our travel plans change. The oldest entry is at the top of the page and the most recent entry is at the bottom of the page. We started traveling fulltime on June 22, 2011; we started living fulltime in our RV in May 2010 while we were preparing our home for sale and selling off most of our possessions. This is our 8th year of fulltime traveling and our 9th year of living fulltime in our motor coach.

Here is a link to Our Visited Places; this is our page listing all of the places that we have been to together "as a couple" since 1996.

Note: On Fri., 03/08/19 we did our third TT upgrade from Ultimate Odyssey I to Ultimate Odyssey II at the much discounted price of $2,150.00. We were informed we were the first TT members to ever do this upgrade. This Double Ultimate Odyssey update fixed all of our LTR, MA, and OW parks from a 90 day reservation window to 180 days like we were receiving for TT, NACO & Encore parks, it reset our yearly maintenance dues from $639.41 to $585.00 yearly starting in Jan. 2020, added 10 more years of free weekly Getaway cabins, 5 more years of weekly Cabin Rental rebate certificates, and 5 more years of $500.00 timeshare/cruise certificates. If we take advantage of the 10 years of one week free cabin stays, that will more than cover the cost of this upgrade. During our lifetime we may direct TT to issue a 5 zone Thousand Trails Camping Pass to up to four (04) family members or friends, and we may will up to eight (08) clones of our current contract for our relatives, so we wanted the highest level of campground membership for our 5 children to enjoy for their retirements too. This eight (08) membership limit shall be reduced by one (01) for each 5 zone TT Camping Pass we create for family & friends while living.
