My husband (65) and I (53) have made the decision to throw in our jobs, rent out our house and come to the US to be "Grey Nomads" as they call it here in Australia. We will have to buy a motor-home when we get to wherever we land in America.
Everything is fluid at this stage and this is only day 2 of 365 days of preparation, but I would like a starting point please. Maybe there is a great thread/blog out there that already discusses this type of plan? Please point me in the right direction if so.
During the 2 years we would like to see as much as we can (in a leisurely fashion) of Canada, Alaska, USA, Mexico and possibly other central American countries - as far down as the Panama Canal.
My first big ask is about the seasons and the right time to travel in each location - in a general way as each country is BIG I know.
For example, I read that the best time to travel in Canada is June-August if you have a motor-home.
We may have to go up and down and all over to see each location at it's peak/shoulder time. Maybe we can do a full circle? Up the east coast, across and back down the west coast into Mexico. I really have no idea as you can tell. :0)
I am sure we will not buy a massive MH so we hope to be able to take it to all countries, but I would appreciate general advice for driving a MH in Central America. Should we or shouldn't we for starters?
I think we are going to be great friends and I look forward to talking with all of you.
