Monday, May 16 dawned a little foggy and muggy after a rainy night. We packed up, hooked up, and headed north. Our intended route took us on I-65 all the way to Indianapolis, then 31 to Michigan. As we approached exit 263 near Athens, AL, we were enjoying a Tom Clancy audiobook. I heard a […]Read more "Fort Rucker – Athens, AL – Columbus, IN – Hopkins, MI…More Adventures"
After a wonderful weekend with Mike, we pulled out Monday morning and headed for Arkansas. Travel was pleasantly uneventful, and it was a blessing for both of us to be traveling in the same vehicle again. We left our Fiesta living in “Uncle Mike’s” pole barn for the summer. Conway Arkansas was our target for […]Read more "Oklahoma to Fort Rucker – A Tale of (Mis)Adventure"
After a visit to the ENT doctor on Tuesday, we received the green light for me to travel. My ears are still a bit clogged/hearing is muffled – but I can hear, have no pain, and am ready to try this! We left College Station on Wednesday, May 4 with Bill in the lead and […]Read more "Third Time’s The Charm!"
It seems that I am being offered the opportunity to catch up on the blog. So our last blog post found us at Engineer Beach RV Park at Fort Rucker in October. Since then…… We traveled to Mayport, back to our favorite Osprey Cove at Naval Station Mayport (Jacksonville, FL). We knew when we arrived […]Read more "Catch Up Time"

Interesting place, the Red Roof Inn in Birmingham! Many of the other guests were indulging in a little recreational weed – and it seems like the gathering spot was right outside our door. It took a little experimenting to learn that in order to operate our room TV, we had to plug it in to […]Read more "October 25, 2021 – Engineer Beach Campground, Fort Rucker, AL"
After fiddling with the leveling system, again without success, our “on-the-road” time was 0930 hrs. I was surprised to learn that Arkansas is a major source of rice! As our travels continued, I also learned that cotton is an Arkansas crop as well. For a while, I thought that someone lost a huge load of […]Read more "October 24, 2021 – Arkansas/Tennessee/Mississippi/Alabama!!!"
After thoroughly enjoying Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with Mike, we packed up this morning to hit the road. What a delight and treasure it is to spend time with family! Traffic was light, and the construction sites weren’t too congested. I-40 East in Oklahoma is an interesting ride…kind of like riding over corrugated roads. It […]Read more "October 23, 2021 – Edmond, OK to Morrilton, AR"
We seem to be learning, and having the lesson reinforced often – that flexibility is key. Have a plan, but don’t tie your success to it. Be willing to adapt. Our departure was a tad delayed. The automatic leveling system seems to be taking intermittent holidays. I am willing to go with the fact that […]Read more "October 19, 2021"
After an amazing sunrise and quiet, restful night, we topped off the diesel tank and hit the road. Leaving Gilman at 0845 hrs., traffic was light and travel was again pleasant. The sun made an all-day appearance for us, and there was little to no wind. Temps were cool to start – mid 40’s, but […]Read more "October 18, 2021"
