May 2, 2013 - Planning the trip

We decided to go to Alaska this year. We put together an itinerary to leave the third week of June from Palm Harbor Florida and return mid-October. We have a 2013 Coachmen Concord 220 LE Motorhome and will not be towing a car. Our basic plans are to make our way from Florida through Illinois, South Dakota and Montana, crossing into Canada at Sweet Grass (I-15), then on to Prince Rupert, BC where we will put the RV on the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry on July 23. We will roll off at Juneau and stay there for over a week, using our two-for-one...

Jun 20, 2012 - Dunedin brewery

We didn't get up too early today, we decided on a lazy day. Went for breakfast at Rodie's as the food was good and great value for money. I had corned beef hash with two eggs on top. Gaz decided on eggs, bacon and hash browns with toast and also had a side order of one pancake with strawberries on. He eat the lot and thoroughly enjoyed it. More shopping was the order of the morning, so we headed back to the Mall and visited Kohl's again too. It is so nice to walk around a mall in the US as they are never crowded. As lunchtime approached we...

Jun 17, 2012 - Palm Harbor

We got up this morning and had a lovely breakfast out on the rear deck of our hotel overlooking the lake. It was so peaceful, we really didn't want to leave. Anyway, 228 miles and just over 4 hours later we arrived at 4174 Seton Circle, Palm Harbor. The villa is situated on a small development of just 59 houses. We stopped off to get an ice cream in Dairy Queen and ended up having a mushroom swiss burger. It was gross, as soon as we heard the microwave ding we knew we'd made a mistake. We just never learn, in future we will stick to eating...

The Dunedin RV Resort held its talent show last night. Sue organized a group of campers into a comedy troupe that presented a skit based upon a skit that we saw a couple of years ago at Sherwood Forest. I have uploaded a portion of the skit (including Sue's part) for your enjoyment and amusement.

Jan 2, 2012 - Theresa Comes to Visit

New Years Day was brightened by a visit from our good friend Theresa Wilde. Theresa took advantage of the one-night stay at the Blue Moon Inn (right here at Dunedin RV Resort) that Sue and I won in a singing contest! She flew in late on New Years Day and right back out the next evening. Although it was a short visit, we had a great time visiting with Theresa. Sue and Theresa had a sleep over at the motel on Sunday night and then we drove to St. Petersburgh for lunch at the Columbia Restaurant. Although the weather was uncooperative (cold!),...

Dec 29, 2011 - One Month in Dunedin and an Anniversary

It's been a quiet month in Dunedin, FL. We have settled in to Site 29 for a four and a half month stay. It's a pleasant site although we are backed up to a swamp area and access to the roof is difficult. Sue and Arnie quickly returned to the doggie beach on Honeymoon Island and have visited regularly throughout the month. Scott came to visit for a week beginning on the 21st. We had a good time visiting Clearwater Beach, spending Christmas together, and dining at a variety of local restaurants. On the day after Christmas the three of us...

Jul 5, 2011 - Final Entry for this trip

For some reason I could not sleep this morning so I got up and went fishing in the local pond/lake. Caught two nice size Catfish on my ultralight gear. Time to get going but it is really foggy. We were planning to stop in Perry, GA but we pushed on and drove on home. Long drive but we are here safe and sound. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and updates during this trip. Dave and Vonna

Jun 3, 2011 - Home

Well the day is finally here. I have been planning for weeks for this trip and I am sure there is something I have forgotten. As we took the last items this morning to the 5th Wheel it started. The storms we had last week apparently knocked out the electric at our storage site and the battery was so low we could not raise the electric jacks!! After a little thought and a few words not normally heard in Church, I had a last resort Idea. I took out my converter that I use in the truck to run a computer and plugged it into the camper. After...

Feb 10, 2011 - "Mostly Good News"

Ken and Dee Davis arrived on the day of Sue's surgery and have provided support during the waiting period since. It is always fun to get together with them. We sat down with Dr. Apte this morning to get the results of the clinical workup. He said, "it's mostly good news." Not exactly what we wanted to hear, but better than it might have been. The good news is that they found no cancer cells outside of the uterus. But the cells in the uterus were aggressive and had penedtrated deeply into the uterine wall. So he has recommended and we have...

Jan 31, 2011 - Successful Surgery!

Today was a long day, but with a happy ending. We arrived at Moffitt Cancer Center at 6:00 a.m. for Sue's pre-op. Dr. Apte, the surgeon, said that the surgery would take between three and a half and four hours. I left Sue at 8:10 to begin the vigil. They have a board in the waiting room that shows where all the patients are at any given time. The board indicated that Sue entered the operating room at 8:20. I walked a few miles, ate a little, and returned the waiting room at about 10:30. By 12:30 I was getting nervous because the damn board...
