Today started before we really wanted it to. Neighbors in a coach nearby decided to warm up their rig at 0500 hrs., prior to their 0600 hrs. departure. Not a very neighborly thing to do in close quarters…please be considerate of your fellow travelers! We hit the road at 0845 in bright sunshine after another […]Read more "14 October 2020 – Georgetown, KY to Calhoun, GA"
It was a dark and stormy night…. And unbelievably windy last night. That all changed this morning as we were greeted with a cloudless blue sky and gorgeous sunrise over Lake Erie. We quickly packed up, and departed Sterling at 0935 hrs. Travel was very pleasant – traffic was light and moving well. We did […]Read more "13 Oct 20 – Monroe, MI to Georgetown, KY"
We departed Wellston at 0910 hrs., a full 20 minutes ahead of planned departure. The colors have been glorious the past few days here is northern Michigan. It was, as always, hard to say goodbye to Mom. She handed me a bag (very heavy) full to the top with travel snacks. Bill says we will […]Read more "October 11 & 12 – Wellston, MI to Monroe, MI"
Normally, I wouldn’t post a link to my personal blog – but wanted to capture this adventure on both sites. We will be hitting the road again in a few days – so more adventures to come!Read more "Dumonts Are On The Road Again with Thelma and Louise!"
Yay! We are back in our RV in Heart of the Forest Campground in Wellston. I know my Mom has to breathing a sigh of relief. She graciously invited us (and we gratefully accepted!) to come a stay with her while Bill recuperated from surgery. That was 23 days ago. Bill is doing remarkably well.

This is a very late catch-up post. We left Houston on the 14th. Beth joined me for a walk before we left – we walked in what started out as a mist and evolved into a serious soaking rain. She headed off to work, and we commenced to pack with a thunderstorm sounding it’s warning. […]Read more "Back In Michigan – Monday, May 18"
May 12 – We are enjoying Texas and spending time with Beth. Bill is really enjoying the “fruits” of her labors – she brought over warm berry crisp and left the extras for his breakfast. Today Beth took us to Rose’s Seafood Market and was my navigator in the store. We came away with the […]Read more "Home Sweet Texas"
May 10 – Another early start – we were on the road by 0915 hrs. This whole pack up and hit the road thing is coming back – just like riding a bike. The traffic in Louisiana and Texas is significantly higher volume, but polite. Our travel was pretty light – we covered 214 […]Read more "Hello Texas! It’s Been Awhile!"
May 9 – Day 2 en route to Houston. We switched to CST yesterday, so woke earlier than we planned. Wheels turning by 0901 hrs, and pointed west, still on I-10. Funny thing about being in one place for a long time (we were stationary for 6 months!) – you run the risk of getting […]Read more "Milton FL to Dusan LA – 4 Warps!"
It has taken three attempts for us to be on the road again – this time we did it! We left Osprey Cove at 0935 hrs. and traveled I10 West for the day. Last week we were getting ready for our first try and the truck developed a severe case of fatigue – seriously lost […]Read more "On The Road – Take 3"
