May 2, 2014 - Almost Home!!

The Everharts had another long day....about 440 miles. But it was nice riding those green hills and country roads for a change. The deserts and canyons were amazing but I do love trees! Ended up in Cullman, Al for our last night on the road. The Shepherds had a shorter day as they had to deal with flat tire issues. They were lucky to find a tire at the Yamaha store that fit the bill. They made it to Hot Springs and found a $5 camping rate. You have to love the National Park system! Timing was good as Hot Springs was having their annual...

West on 2 Wheels X4

Nov 15, 2012 - Cullman Campground

It was a beautiful 150 miles from Hornsby, TN to Cullman, AL through mountainous countryside with the plethora of trees changing color. Our friends, the Dodds, live about 25 miles away and it is for a visit with them that we are here. This privately owned campground is nice and comfortable, a bit tight to drive around with the RV but the power and water are good. The town of Cullman is a busy little town with several things to see, such as the Ave Maria Grotto. As it turns out, our friends driveway has a wide spot that is somewhat level...

Sep 15, 2012 - Ave Maria Grotto

As we said in our update notice, we hadn’t planned on doing an update from Cullman, AL, but this grotto probably wouldn’t fit in very well with whatever we explore in Gulf Shores. This campground is unimpressive. It is well mowed but laid out in a very haphazard pattern between a pond and a grazing field for horses. We hadn’t expected to find anything to visit while here; it was just to be a stopover on our way to the gulf. However, in the office there was a brochure for the Ave Maria Grotto on the grounds of the only Benedictine monastery...

Mar 4, 2012 - March 1st

Well we woke this morning and decided not to go on the bird walk. We thought we might stay a few days a little further West on the Florida Peninsula. Sally called to try to get reservations, but none were available is several state parks. We think the Spring Breakers are here. Well given that, we decided to start home. We headed up through the Florida peninsula into Alabama. There was a little wind but not really that much. We went North and slightly West and got on Interstate 65. We drove on for a few hours and at dark we stopped at a...

Florida 2011

May 24, 2011 - Finally on the road again

Last Thursday Tom and I pulled out of Top of Georgia Airstream Park near Helen, Ga. Our first few weeks on the road will be the first leg of our summer travels. Thursday we drove about 250 miles to Cullman, AL. The days travels were uneventful and really not a whole lot to tell about. This is always a long day. The travels are mostly on 2 lane roads with lots of hills and curves. Tom says after a day of driving these roads he doesn't need a gym. We past several areas that had damage from the tornadoes a few weeks ago. Matter of fact, we had...

SILVER TRAILS

Nov 20, 2007 - Cullman, AL

November 20 The Ave Maria Grotto was really cool!!!! Brother Joseph was the man who made the grotto. While I walked on the path there was a sculpture of miniature buildings everywhere I looked and I liked them all. Then we traveled on to the millcreek RV park. When we got there I helped father set up the RV. This includes hooking up the water, plugging in the electricity and putting the antenna up.

Sep 26, 2006 - Cullman, Alabama

Some have complained that I do not post enough pictures, but there are a couple of good reasons why I hold the number of pictures down. First, I haven't been retired long enough not to be impatient and pictures upload at the speed of a racing snail. Second, when you are seeing things in person, pictures just don't seem to tell the story. I'll try to do better. I've mentioned it before, but it's worth repeating; for anybody thinking of this life style, use a checklist every time you move the rig. It's easy to get careless and forget to do...

Pinder's On the Road

Sep 9, 2005 - From A Bee Hive Of Activity To Complete Peace & Quiet

We got everything ready to go this morning. Then we went over to the pavilion to say goodbye to the volunteers that we had met and the campground staff. None of them wanted us to go. The park superintendant felt like he was forcing us out by moving us off our site, but we assured him that it was just time for us to move on. The campground manager found us a site in a nearby mobile home park with full hook-ups for $180 per month - everyone made it pretty tough to leave. But, many of the families that had arrived while we were there were...

Jun 5, 2005 - Atlanta to Scottsboro, AL

John and Shirly had a committment with their friends for breakfast and Gaye and I me Betty and Harold. We had discussed the next stop and all agreed that it would be intersting to go to Scottsboro, AL. You are probably wondering whey go there - well we had all eard about the unclaimed baggage store in that city and decided a variation to the schedule for a little shopping would be in order. The trip took longer than anticipated but I will say that the area is beautiful and we stayed at a very nice RV Park. Gaye planned a very nice meal that...
