Jul 29, 2011 - Apalachin,NY to Ashville, NY

Left the Scheffer home this morning going to the Scheffer house on Lake Chautauqua,NY at 9:30. We made a pit stop at a rest stop so Alec could take care of his business. It was starting to get cloudy and we ran into some rain between the Indian Reservation and the lake. We thought it was going to be a bad weekend, but it turned out pretty nice and Alec had a chance to get in the water. Everyone was tired so we all went to bed around 10 pm. Tomorrow is suppose to a nice day in the mid 80's. That means that Alec and the kids will get to do...

Sep 13, 2010 - Apalachin, New York-The Scheffer Resort

We arrived at Jim & Cheryl's home for the final leg of our vacation. Tomorrow we will start unloading our home on wheels and packing the suitcase's for our trip home on Sept. 22d. We have a lot to do. This weekend I will go with Jim to his house by the lake and help him bring in his dock. We will probably do some fishing before we do it. Don't know if there will be anymore pictures unless we catch a fish big enough to brag about. Hope you have enjoyed what will probably be our last trip across the United States in the Motorhome.

Jun 28, 2010 - Apalachin, New York-The Scheffer Resort

Haven't done much of anything up to this point. We have just laid around and relaxed and enjoyed life. Tomorrow Chica goes in for her scheduled surgery, needless to say I'm a nervous wreck already. Today we will load our clothes and other stuff into the RV. Weather is hot and humid. Uschi is really enjoying it, HaHa. Probably won't have any pictures until we get to the lake.

Jul 30, 2009 - Clam Night at the Terrace Tavern-Apalachin,NY

Jim was at sea on the USS Eisenhower with his grandson for the the last clam night at the Terrace Tavern, but we decided to enjoy the last night without him. As you can see by the pictures most everyone was there. Would have liked to have stayed longer with all of the guys & gals, but I had to drive to Philly the next day. This officially ends our Coronado Tour for 2009. I took some video and if possible I will add it to the website once we get settled in back at home. We hope you have enjoyed the pictures as much as we enjoyed being there...

Arrived safely at our final destination at the Scheffer's. We will spend most of the week getting the RV winterized. Sounds funny when you think about it cause who winterize's their RV in the middle of July. My goal is to get everything done and the RV put to bed by Friday. Don't know how many pictues I will take before we leave on the 31st.

Jun 7, 2009 - The Scheffer's

Other than getting the RV ready and enjoying our some time with Jim & Cheryl we really haven't done too much. Cheryl had her first Horse competition on Sunday. Cheryl and Bob took a 1st and 2d place in her two events. The good thing is that this was her first competition. Bob acted up getting into the trailer, but he was at his best when it counted.
