Leon and I and Benni our 110 pound Weimadore took off on Sunday, August 26th from New Mexico in our small 5th wheel RV (no slide-outs) and headed East. Leon has been working practically non-stop for months and accumulated almost 5 weeks of Comp-Time. So we decided to go for it. It can be a grueling drive but we think it's worth the trip...to see friends and relatives and to camp near the beach in Provincetown, MA.
Since moving to New Mexico we've been to California beaches but something about Cape Cod and the beaches in P-town is just comforting and familiar and carefree.
The first leg of the trip included only two overnights. Because it was brutally hot and humid we needed electricity to run the AC, so decided against "dry" camping. The first night was at an Indian Casino in Oklahoma (free) and one night in Ohio at a city park ($25). Both had hookups.

We then checked in at Mountainside Campground - an all male gay camp - for the Labor Day weekend and took a day hike to the Rock River where Leon and I met 30 years ago! Hard to believe, 30 years. We met young guys there who weren't even born 30 years ago.

Today we went to the Flea Market.
That's all for now.
On Tuesday morning we head to Cape Cod and Provincetown. I'll be updating with photos and commentary in the coming days and weeks. Thanks for checking in.
