Apr 28, 2013 - Tomorrow is the day!

We're heading out in the morning to begin our trip towards Michigan. Not sure of all the stops... weather in the midwest is weird, to say the least. We'll head thru Alabama (Montgomery), Mississippi (Vicksburg), Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Then we'll see.... If you aren't interested in following the trip this year, just let me know and I'll remove you from our list. I understand that not everyone is interested so don't stay if you don't want to. We'll be back in Florida late September or early October, God willing and the waters don't rise! Of...

Apr 2, 2012 - Finishing the journey

Our trip last year was interrupted by quakes and 'canes! Hopefully we can complete that journey now. We're heading out Sunday, April 8; first stop, Charleston. On Tuesday we'll head out for DC where we're staying at Cherry Hill Campground in College Park, Maryland; staying there til April 19. Then it's on to New Jersey where we'll visit Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, and Philadelphia. By the end of April we should be in Newport, Tennessee; as KOA hosts we'll be doing a variety of tasks but will have lots of time to travel the area. Hope...

Today it's really raining and tomorrow's forecast is more of the same. But since we're involved in the Power Squadron's ABC class which runs from 8am to 5 pm, I don't guess it matters. Sunday and Monday...

Jun 19, 2011 - Getting ready

We are getting excited about our next "big" trip! This time we're headed - ultimately - for Nova Scotia! Last year's trip to Alaska put a whopping 17,000 miles on our red truck; this year's trip appears to be about 8-10,000 miles. July 12 is our departure date, and the first stop will be in Charleston. After that, we head up to Wilmington and the Outer Banks. I'm sending out this notice so I can be sure that I have the emails for those of you who want to enjoy our trip.

Jun 27, 2010 - Home - at last

Our trip has ended. In many ways we are saddened to see it end. Of course we missed folks in our community, but we have decided that RVing is definitely for us! We thank all of you that kept up with us, encouraged us, and prayed for us! It was truly the trip of a lifetime and we will relive the memories as long as we live. I'm already starting to research our next trip which will be up the east coast to Nova Scotia, taking in the Outer Banks of NC, Washington, Ellis Island, Boston, etc. It will probably be 2012 before we set out since we're...
