Apr 1, 2017 - Classing up Auburn :)

Well, here we are in Auburn – Tiger Country – or as our many Auburn fans say, God’s Country. Funny how many Auburn fans have come out of the woodwork on Facebook since Steve and I checked in here. People that NEVER comment are telling us what to do, where to go, etc. Thursday, I made a Wal-Mart run early in the morning and then did a load of laundry (free here at the park) while Steve went into the Post Office in Auburn. When he came back, he stopped at the laundry and then went to grab us some vittles. We ate while sitting on an Auburn...

2017 Life in our RV

Mar 30, 2017 - moving on up

Moving on up Our days at Meaher State Park flew by! I had a short conversation with the Scoutmaster of the Boy Scout troop that was camped near us. I politely asked him to talk to the boys about not walking through our campsite on the way to the bathhouse. I stopped him when HE was walking through our campsite, so I am guessing he was part of the problem. But after that, the kids started walking on the sidewalk, so I guess he did have a chat with them. We enjoyed having our friends, Ron and Louise Clifton, camping nearby and we hung out...

2017 Life in our RV

Sep 16, 2016 - Auburn, AL

The Aire is parked at Elks Lodge 1834 in Auburn, Alabama. We are boondocking in their parking lot. Friday Sept. 16—We arrived early on Friday, had lunch in the rig and headed out to visit Tuskegee and Horseshoe Bend. The lodge is just a couple of miles up the road from Auburn University, who had a home football game on Saturday. Tailgating begins Thursday after work, and the surrounding area was a zoo already. We took a quick drive by the front of the University and got a couple of photos. Tuskegee Airman—In July, 1941, 13 young African...

East Coast Bound!

Oct 22, 2013 - Day 22. Mobile To Auburn, Alabama

There is a battleship and a submarine in the harbour. The US ALABAMA and the US DRUM. Of coarse we couldn’t leave Mobile without a visit to these two monoliths! In true American fashion they had been restored beautifully even down to the recorded noises and vibrations in the engine room. It was quite spine chilling to imagine the lives of the marines on board these ships during wartime. So on to our next destination. The next two weeks will take us on the return trip to New York through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, West...

Jul 15, 2011 - Auburn, AL

En-route to Gulf Shores, AL to spend a week with my son, his wife and her family. When our children were growing up, we spent spring break at Gulf Shores State Park for nearly ten consecutive years. The Kulovitz family has spent summer vacations in Gulf Shores forever. As a result, Gulf Shores is near and dear to all of us. I had originally planned to leave early enough Friday to drive all the way or most of the way to the Gulf Shores, AL area. Earlier in the week, the water pump failed on Jo Ann’s car and we had to take it to a garage...

May 8, 2011 - Auburn, AL

/// Sunday - May 8, 2011 HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.....! We departed Gulf Shores, AL at 8:00 AM. Found very little traffic on Hwy 59 north through Foley, etc. I managed to hit mostly green lights(for a change). Once we hit I-65, I was surprised to find much more traffic than I expected given it was a Sunday and Mother's Day. The road conditions were good and we had no issues with today's trip. We made just two stops, at Rest Areas, and arrived in Auburn, AL by 12:45 PM. Today's trip was 238 miles. We are staying at the Leisure Time Campground. We...

Oct 21, 2010 - Auburn Football - Lousianna State University

This is a big game for us. Auburn ranks fourth in the polls with a 7/0 record. LSU is also having a good year and ranked fifth in the polls with the same 7/0 record. The Auburn offense is among the best in the country and the LSU defense holds the same position. After this weekend, one of the programs will maintain its high position and the other will drop like a rock. Thursday, October 21, 2010 (Auburn, AL) During football season, our home time is just three days – Monday through Wednesday. We have learned how to manage our packing. There...

Oct 14, 2010 - Auburn Football - the University of Arkansas

Thursday, October 14, 2010 Having just returned from our trip to Albuquerque, our departure point for this game was the Hoover RV Park. The Sprinks are joining us for this game so we need to get our prime regular spot at Auburn. We left Hoover at 11:00 AM, stopped at the Wal-Mart in Pelham for fuel, and made it to Auburn by 1:45 PM. Since the field does not open until 2:00 PM, we were undecided on whether we should stage at University Station of go right to the field. As we drove past the Hay-Field, we noticed people all over the field in...

Sep 23, 2010 - Auburn Football - the University of South Carolina

Thursday, September 23, 2010 This is game week number four. We have won two at home and one on the road. This week it is the Old Ball Coach – Steve Spurrier and the University of South Carolina. Everyone is anticipating a great game. South Carolina has started very good this – their defense in improved and they finally have a running game. Auburn has been great at times and poor at times too. We left Hoover around 11:00 AM. This puts us into Auburn about 1:00 PM. We drive to the Hay-Field first to check the situation this week – nothing...

Sep 2, 2010 - Auburn Football - Arkansas State University

Thursday, September 2, 2010 (Auburn, AL) After waiting almost a year, college football season is here again. In the state of Alabama, college football is king – the common topic everyone talks about all year long. For Auburn fans, the start of the season year is important. Last year our instate rival, the University of Alabama, won the national championship. For a whole year, those Alabama fans have constantly reminded us of their achievement (as if we did not already know). Now with the new season starting, everything is equal again –...
