We've decided to move to NH within 1 month.  

It may be tough to pull off if you have all those pets along with you, but the timing of when you plan to move aligns pretty closely with my Liberty Caravan. If you do drive across the country, we could try to hook up and travel together. Check out the website for the caravan (www.libertycaravan.org). The dates when I am planning the caravan for are from Sep 6 - 17 (or maybe just until the 14th as the date to arrive in NH), I will be driving from Utah for this move.


All of the cats are new editions. We're attached but have decided it would be easier to find them new homes here. The dog is very low maintenance when traveling. We are in NC so I'm not sure if our paths will cross before we get to far from NH. If thy do then meeting your deadline sounds good. We plan on leaving September 15th 2 or 3 days plus or minus.

It might be warm enough that you could live in the RV for 3 or 4 weeks, so if you find somewhere to park it (but not live in for the winter) then the RV might still make sense.

We don't have the rv yet. If we were to purchase one we'd like to stay in it for awhile. The purpose of using it would be to offset rental cost and be mobile.

Well, if you travel up the coast we could meet somewhere in NY (or maybe PA if I go via Philadelphia), you're right that would just be the last day of the trip. Still it might be worth considering, esp if I can get anyone else to sign up for this thing.

That sounds like a plan.  I'll confirm next week exactly what day we're leaving then go from there. I can pm you or contact you via the website.

RVing in the winter is possible, in NH.  I know folks who've done it.

RVing in the winter, and having running water, in NH, is not practical.

So you'd need to find a place with bathroom facilities, if you wanted to do that.  And you would potentially need to be running outdoors to use the bathroom, in the middle of blizzards.

It is, technically, possible to have an RV with running water, here, in the winter, but it typically requires modifications to keep the pipes from freezing, and to keep the water pipe in and the waste pipe out, from freezing, as well.

There is a poker room in Milford as well if I am not mistaken.

http://www.apartmentsforpets.com/apartmentdetail.asp?apartment=2655  Countryside Village in Manchester....more reasonable than the links in Nashua.

You want furnished AND month to month AND takes dogs. Anything else??

Some furnished winter places near the beach:

2 BR - $1000 - pets negotiable - lease - avail 10/1
http://nh.craigslist.org/apa/2553397448.html

http://nh.craigslist.org/apa/2535145134.html
3BR - $1200 - pets considered - avail 10/2

http://nh.craigslist.org/apa/2532869004.html
3BR - dog OK - $700

You might have to delay your arrival until after 10/1 to find a place at the beach...maybe stay in a motel for a couple of days....and it might just mean calling dozens until you find one that is OK with the German Shepard.

You've answered my questions.  Yes its doable but doesn't sound practical.  Purchasing the RV then ending up having to stay in a hotel or attain a rental doesn't fit in financially.  Lots of wisdom Joe.  Looking forward to meeting you.

Thanks.

It's certainly do-able, but it's not simple.  If someone was dead-set on RV-ing, it might make sense, but otherwise, it's cheaper and simpler to rent.

I think I would like to arrive on the 16th, actually. There is a huge marijuana freedom rally in Boston on the 17th, and though I am not a marijuana user I would like to go to it. I also don't want to drive through Mass during the move if I have any guns, they have draconian rules about transporting them ( I would avoid New Jersey for the same reason, if this is an issue for you). Anyway, I would suggest we try to meet around Albany NY on the 16th, and drive over via Vermont if this schedule works for you.

I'm not encouraging you to drive through Mass, but FYI, if you're driving on the Interstate, and you have the firearms locked up in the trunk, you're covered by Federal laws.  They have to be locked, inaccessible to the driver, and any ammunition must be separate from the firearms.  You're allowed to make stops for fuel and food, but no extended detours.

Various groups have made up little pamphlets that you can hand to cops.  Or, more importantly, since they won't even know you have guns unless they're searching the vehicle, that can be taped to the cases, so they can't help but see them as soon as they see the gun case.

But the drive over through Vermont is fairly pretty, so that's likely a good idea, anyway...

Do they have to be in a locked case, inside the locked trunk, and with the ammunition in a separate locked case inside the trunk? That's what I seem to recall hearing before.

Pretty much.

I don't think the ammunition actually needs to be in a locked case - just outside the locked case containing the firearms.  But I couldn't swear to it, and I would not suggest doing it otherwise, as they generally need a warrant to open a locked case, but only probable cause to search anything unlocked in a vehicle.
