The campground at Naval Weapons Station, Joint Base Charleston – Foster Creek Campground – is a lovely place to stay. We truly enjoyed our time there. Saturday was a leisurely start and we planned to take care of a few errands. Preventive maintenance is always high on our list – so the truck received a […]Read more "October 12 – 14 – Goose Creek, SC…Adventures and Misadventures"
Bill was a sleepyhead this morning! He didn’t crawl out of bed until 0930 hrs. Needless to say, we had a late start to the day. We didn’t have a firm plan – until yesterday, we were planning to visit a volunteer organization that had sounded interesting 2 years ago. Yesterday we decided that we […]Read more "October 11, 2019 – Harmony, NC to Goose Creek, SC (And A Joyful Realization)"
Today was moving day – it was supposed to be yesterday – but we extended our stay to spend a little extra time with Beth. Tuesday found us exploring Manassas – the Battles of Bull Run.

Beth joined us around 0815 hrs. this morning, and we set off for Shenandoah Valley National Park. There are […]Read more "October 7 – Shenandoah Valley National Park and Appalachian Trail, Luray Caverns"

Most important is to get the coffee on for Bill! I start packing up each room – a successful move requires […]Read more "October 6 – PA-MD-WV-VA"
How Bill starts the morning – coffee and apple dumpling: Today we decided we would visit Delaware. Apparently, you can’t get there from here easily. We avoid toll roads when possible. We did have a lovely drive, reminiscent of the old “Sunday Afternoon Drive”. Our travels took us through Amish Country, we shared the roads […]Read more "October 5 – Delaware and Keeping It Real"
Time for a little catch-up here. Wednesday was a day to tidy things around the house and enjoy the campground. We went to Walt’s house for dinner and to wish him well on his trip. Thursday was designated Gettysburg Day 2. Great plans – but we forgot to designate one of us to be responsible […]Read more "October 2-4 – Maryland, Gettysburg Day 2, and Pennsylvania"
