Volo Auto Museum

I wanted to stop at the Volo Auto Museum after I saw it on Roadkill.  If you haven’t watched Roadkill, I highly recommend it.  It is car guy reality TV without any faked up drama.

One of the first things you see when entering the museum is their Dusseldorf collection.  Nicole and I both agree that these cars have to be the height of automotive manufacturing and design ever.  We also learned a fun fact.  The phrase, “That’s a doozy” comes from peoples admiration for the car.

Another cool thing about the Volo Auto Museum is that it is basically the worlds largest hotrod car lot.  You can buy about any tricked out car you can think of.IMG 0010IMG 0009IMG 0008

They also had a ton of movie and TV Show cars.

We only spent a couple hours there, but had a great time.  I highly recommend it if you are ever in the area.

On the Road Again

Nicole and I left Centerville on Monday, Oct1, 2018 to travel around New England with our friends Flash and Lisa.  Our plan is to pick up Flash and Lisa at the airport in Boston, MA on Friday.  We’ll be taking them to an RV rental place where they are getting a Class B RV to convoy with us for 10 days.  We don’t know what we are going to do for 10 days, but I’m sure we won’t run out of things to see.

After our friends head back to Iowa, we are going to head south to stay out of the snow.  We’ll probably be gone for 4-6 months living on the road.  I’ll try to keep the blog updated with what we are up to.

Nicole wanted a map to track which states we have been to.  We stuck the map on our refrigerator as you can see below.

So far on this trip we have been to the Volo Auto Museum, in Illinois, and Niagra Falls.  I’ll post separate blog posts for each of those.  We’ve been driving for 3 days now, so the Northeast United States is getting filled out.

We are currently in a Walmart parking lot in Westborough, MA for the night.  The sign when you enter this Walmart says “No Overnight Parking”, so we’ll see if we get over looked or not.  We purposefully built the van to not look like someone is sleeping in it for this kind of situation.  We’ve done multiple nights in Walmarts that banned parking before, so I don’t expect any problems.  I’ll let you know if we get rousted.  🙂
