RAMBLING ALONG travel blog


Faye travel blog
Thank you for taking the time to read about our trip to the North West, Pacific North West, Pacific Coast and getting back by way of the South Western States. We hope to adventure through British Columbia and Alberta Canada. Our plan is to see at least 20 states.

I, Faye, will do the writing and most of the driving while on this trip. Bob will be the navigator and make sure everything is running properly to keep our travels smooth.

We live in Nashville, Tennessee. Bob was born in Nashville. I was born in Cleveland, Alabama. I came to Nashville in April of 1963 to work. Bob and I met on November 1, 1963. We were married just 45 days later on December 15, 1963.

We have 3 children Robby, Darrell, and Jennifer. All are married and live close to Nashville. Robby and Bethany live in Murfreesboro with their 2 children Lauren and Nicholas. Darrell and Melinda live in Dickson with their 2 children Austin and Dalton. They are expecting their 3rd child in September. Jennifer and Bobby live in Fairview with their 2 children Megan and Madison.

I retired in September of 2007 and Bob retired in January of 2008. We were planning on taking this adventure during the Summer of 2008. Due to the fuel prices and the economy bottoming out, we put the trip off for a year.

We started camping a year or 2 after we married. We built our first pick up camper for Bob's 1965 Chevrolet truck. Years laters, we bought a slide in camper. In the late 70's we bought our first motor home. It was a Class C Georgia Boy. In the fall of 1996, we bought a new 1996 Holiday Rambler diesel pusher to follow our dreams of seeing the USA.

Over the years we have traveled in the Eastern part of the US. This trip started out to follow the Lewis & Clark Expedition but then there was all the National Parks, all the major Dams (an interest of Bob's) of the Western United States, all the scenic drives, and towns that we have always wanted to visit.

We plan on visiting our friends along the way. We also look forward to the new friends that we will be meeting. We are just going to ramble along each day for a new adventure.

This trip will be a taste to see if we will go RVing full time.

I am new at the computer and all that it entails. Hopefully I will get better as our adventure goes along. Our departure date is May 18,2009. We plan on returning home for the arrival of our 7th grandchild in September.

We would love to hear comments or questions. Send us a note via the "leave a message link". If you would like to be notified by e-mail when I make a new entry, click on the "request for update link" on this page.

Thank you for joining Bob and I on our adventure.
