Default Trippin Soon!!

Connie and I are about to start this summer trip. Soon we should be heading west (to Reno) then further west and north. We just need to dodge all the oil spills, earthquakes, floods, volcanos, fires and illegals on the way. We hope to cross paths with many other Newells.

Hey Matt,

Is the coach still in Reno?

I've heard that Northern California, Oregon, and Washington state is beautiful. I always wanted to see the Oregon coast.

Maybe next year!

Have a blast and don't worry about hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, oil spills, and anything else.

Keep us updated.

Enjoy your trip! Cindy and I are heading to north Alabama next week to her niece's college grad. and then spending a week at Desoto State Park. We'll take another couple week trip later this summer, can't go longer just yet. Need to get her to quit work first! Hey, why aren't you following Tuga to Alaska? We may go next year or the following. Enjoy.

Just got back from Yuma. When we left the Cabin it was 45 degrees and 95-98 degrees in Yuma! We just got home and it is about 47 degrees up here, what a difference. I do not want to see the Desert again until October.

howdy all,havn't posted for some time, to busy learning,fixing and enjoying our new coach. We have ended up in Ruidoso NM for the next few months then on to the factory for somework. The problems we have had relate to poor maintainence from the last owner, example, 120v compressor was making lots of noise, vibrating the coach, I found all four nuts mikssing on the hold down legs,you need fingers like ET to replace them but it can be done, could go on for an hour but won't. It's to early to compare Newell to our ex bluebird, I'll keep posting on this as time goes on, I do find many of the systems are very much alike, Newell does ride better, Bluebird was a school bus not a road bus.

Thanks for the post Lee. Since several of us looked at Bluebirds prior to purchasing Newells, we are interested in your comparisons. I have several friends with Birds and they are nice coaches. You are correct in that many of the systems are very similar within the same general time frame.

Glad you got the compressor legs strapped back down. Vibrations can be frustrating for most folks and Newell owners are more finicky than most folks.

Steve, glad you are back in cooler weather. As Clarke and Elaine can attest, it is warm already in Austin, especially here by the lake. It was in the 90's today (both temperature and humidity). Just remember that Yuma is dry heat so it doesn't bother you (yeah, right).

We have spent time in Chanler Az with my sister after the Nascar race, then to Sedona, on to Las Vegas for a wedding, man was it hot. After we talked we will meet up with you guys in the next week, need to take the bulldog back to the house. Will leave the Newell in Wa. leave for Alaska the 27th, then will catch up again.

I feel for both of you. I just am not ready for the heat of the desert.
Funny story .. I went to work the next day after returning from Yuma, my windshield was dirty so I hit the washer....it froze! I had to pull over and wait for the defroster to work. I still choose this over that heat, dry or not. (it is 45 right now ha-ha)

We don't need windshield washers here, it's either raining or humidity is so high dirt just slides off!
Hey are we gonna do a mini-rally this year?

I am still interested in meeting up with the willing in Santa Fe, NM. Talked with Michael Day when we visited he and Georgia in Austin last Sunday, and they are very interested in Santa Fe in the Fall of 2010. The summer is pretty much a wash for us due to Elaine's job/time commitments, but it looks like she may be able to carve out 10-12 days in September, or October. Anyone interested?

Either way, the Hockwald clan is planning on being in Santa Fe in the Fall.

October would be good for us, although we are now Newellless. How big does your couch fold out to, Clarke? lol. We would rent a place in town if we can get there. I would recommend the Sky RV Park. It is on the south side, right on the Interstate 25 and has a nice clubhouse with 5 star facilities. The spots are gravel but the views are magnificent. We have stayed there twice, and it is Big Rig friendly. They have a website. Some really cool art communities on the back road to Albuquerque.

That would be soooo cool, David! Our fold out couch is always available to you.... Sky RV Park is exactly the park we are looking at, and that was also recommended to us by Michael.
