Hi, we’re Suze and Lee Weaver

We hope you will join us as we transition from our very "normal" life to something a little less traditional. We are not experts in downsizing, minimalism, early retirement, or full-time RV living. In fact, we’re not experts in anything! Our goal for this blog is simply to share our travels and adventures with our friends and family. Along the way we hope to continuously learn, grow, and laugh.  

Our first time hitting the road towing our new home.

Our first time hitting the road towing our new home.

I (Suze) was a bit fearful about the whole driving/towing situation. A bit, is putting it mildly! When we got our driving/towing lesson the day before, I determined that my “comfort zone” is driving around an empty parking lot at about 12 miles per hour! Looking back, (all the way back to 3 days ago) I see that was not realistic! And yet I convinced Lee to take the “long cut”. It was a crazy, twisty, turny, hilly, narrow, country roads, drive. It took us about 3 hours to drive about 120 miles!

Our destination was a Harvest Host located in Kutztown, PA. Our Harvest Host was Saucony Creek craft brewery + gastropub. Harvest Hosts is a membership where businesses allow rv ers to park overnight on their premises. They are mostly craft breweries and wineries but there are also farms, golf courses, and museums that participate. Lee pulled into the back parking lot and we settled in.

After we settled in a bit, we headed across the parking lot for some beer and dinner. We were able to meet the owner, Ian. He was very nice and welcoming. We asked if he would allow us to stay 2 nights and he said yes! We enjoyed a couple of good beers and some good food.

With Ian allowing us to stay over 2 nights, we were able to get a lot of stuff done without feeling rushed. We worked around the truck (Ol’ Blue) and trailer (Goldie) and ran some errands. After we were too tired to go on, we walked across the parking lot (again) for more beers and dinner. This time we got flights of beer and filled our growler to take back home.

We really enjoyed our experience at our first Harvest Host. Friendly host, good beer and good food.

On our way to our first, full hook up campground.
