Leaving NH for Chilliwack pickup

We thought the day would never come... But it has arrived and we are finally on the road, making the mad dash across the country to Chilliwack to pick up "Casa Blanca"!
First night's goal is Erie PA!

Thanks guys!
Padlin... Would be great to hook up with you and Deb once we pick up!
DonnaD.... I will def post pics along the way. I take too many(at least Charlie thinks so). Will prob post in the evening when I have wifi and can use my iPad instead of my iPhone. Tried to add a photo to original post... It kept kicking me out.
Cpaharley... Planning on mostly i80. We're stopping in CA before heading north!
Currently on the way to Troy....
To be continued!!

Long drive, but you should be able to make it in 4 or 5 days. I did Tampa to Ferndale, just nirth if Bellinham in 4 days. Past St. Louis in day 1, Fort Collins, CO on day 2, Twin Falls, ID on day 3, and Ferndale on day 4, late afternoon. The trip home was a bit slower. Took 6-1/2 weeks.

waterfront

If you have time in Erie, there is a nice waterfront area -- last year we sat outside a restaurant there and listened to music. This year we had the camper and stayed at Sara's Campground just outside the city and never made it in.
