Apr 25, 2015 - Newark, Delaware

Life is an adventure. We planned to leave on April 24 but we decided to wait a day. Instead of rushing we can have a relaxing start to our trip. We hook up the trailer and get on the road. The trailer brakes are not working correctly. Also, the old trailer hitch would have been better. We head to breakfast and then to our nephew’s shop. The brakes are now adjusted and we have switched back to our old hitch. It is 10:30 and we are on the road. We cross the Delaware Memorial bridge and head south on Route 13. We pull up to a stop light and...

Feb 27, 2015 - Home

We made it home late this afternoon, but not without a stop in Baltimore for a visit with Finn. Since Mom was still sick, Finn and Kyle met us at G&M Restaurant, home of the best crab cakes in the US, for a late lunch. Finn was the center of attention in the restaurant. Everyone that walked by commented on how cute he was. I guess he has a good gene lines. Beside being cute he was well behaved and scarfed up crab meat and french fries as fast as his Dad put it on his plate. We were glad to be able to see Finn again and hope that Annie gets...

Dec 15, 2014 - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We will be spending the Christmas season at home visiting with family and friends. We hope that everyone is able to spend the holidays with those that they care about. Please take some time to remember those men and women who are still serving the nation in places far from home. They can use our thoughts and prayers. In 2015 we will be entering our 7th year of travels with Winnie. It's been fun and we hope that every one that keeps up with our journeys have enjoyed them as much as we have. Stay tuned to see what adventures the new year brings.

2014 Christmas

Nov 28, 2014 - Home Again

Instead of going straight home, we decided to visit Finn, Kyle and Annie in Baltimore. We drove into the Baltimore area and parked Winnie in the Pikesville Lanes parking lot and unhitched the Fit to drive to their house. We got there in time to have lunch. We spent a nice afternoon with the family. It still amazes me how much babies change in a short time. It been 3 months since we've seen Finn and he is crawling and starting to stand on his own. It won't be long before he is off and running. We left for home late in the afternoon as I...

Oct 3, 2014 - Day 28

Hey Everyone, Well today we reached the halfway mark of our trip and what a full fun day we had beginning with a morning visit to the US Capitol for a photo opportunity and a look around the Hall of Statue's. Next we made our way down the National Mall for a visit to the National Air and Space Museum, but along the way we along with all the other tourists in the area where offered free lunch packs by some volunteers handing them out on behalf of a company called Applegate. Now let me tell you, these lunch pack were good, they had a yogurt...

2014 Cross Country 2

Jun 29, 2014 - Wrap Up

After spending the last 3 weeks at Lake Raystown RV Resort working, The Great Circle Tour has come to an end when we arrived home this evening. Since leaving home on March 25, we traveled 7,782 miles with stops in 22 states (23 if you count my flight to New York back in May). It took about 975 gallons of gas to cover the distance. With all that travel we added two new states, Mississippi and Washington, to those that we’ve visited in Winnie. We experienced about every weather condition that you could imagine as we traversed the country....

Mar 24, 2014 - Waiting for the Snow

As we prepare for our next trip, we are waiting to see how much snow shows up tomorrow morning. If we’re lucky we’ll only get a light dusting with nothing more than wet streets. I’m really not looking forward to starting this trip with snow covered roads. Usually, I’m waiting for Sue to get her stuff together the night before the trip. Not his time, she’s packed and we’ll be starting out around noon because I need to go to the dentist for some torture. Before I go to the dentist, I need to go to DMV to get Winnie inspected and a title...

Feb 21, 2014 - Home in One Hop

We got home late last night and I was too tired for an update. There wasn’t mush to see on the trip home. It was foggy and raining almost all of the way. We managed to stop at a DDD, the Black Duck, in Connecticut. This place would qualify as a Dive. It looks like an old river boat located right on the river (not in the river) under the I95 Bridge. I stopped here once before and the food was pretty good. We had burgers this time, but no pictures because were got there in time to watch the 3rd period of the USA-Canada hockey game. What a...

Feb 10, 2014 - Safely Home Before the Next Storm

We arrived safely home this afternoon. On the way, we stopped at the Blue Beacon Truck Wash to give Winnie and the Fit a wash to get the road grime off. It turned out to be a mistake. By the time we got home, the Fit was covered by salt residue from the roads and Winnie had some residue of the back wall. I should have waited. Looks like there may be another storm headed this way Wednesday or Thursday. I guess we got home just in time. We'll be home for a couple of days before we head north to Massachusetts for a visit with some friends in...

Dec 25, 2013 - Christmas Day 1776

While we spend tonight in the warmth of our home’s with family and friends enjoying Christmas, take time to remember that 237 years ago a rag tag Continental Army set out from their winter encampment along the Delaware River to cross the river to attack a British garrison of Hessian troops in Trenton, NJ. Washington’s army was fresh from a defeat at the hands of the Redcoats that caused them to lose New York City. The Army was dispirited, hungry, and ill clothed with many of the enlistments of the soldiers expiring. Genera Washington...

2013 Christmas

Dec 19, 2013 - Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

As we enter the Holyday Season, Sue, Winnie, and I would like to wish everyone who followed our travels in 2013, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but to cover all the bases have a Happy Ramahanukwanzmas. As you all have read in our recent journal, December was an eventful and blessed month for our family. It will be hard to top a wedding and a birth in 2014, but we do have one son left and a newly married couple so we'll see (not to put any pressure on anyone). In 2013, Winnie traveled 14,366 miles through 30 states. Early in the...
