Apr 30, 2015 - Welcome to the World Ryleigh Alexis Kranz

Our second trip of the year has been on hold for the last two weeks awaiting the birth of our second grandchild. She finally arrived fashionably late on April 30. Ryleigh Alexis Kranz was born to our son, Shane, and his wife, Jessica at Christiana Care about noon today and weighed in at 10 lb. 12 oz with a full head of black hair. We now have book end birthdays in April with Sue's on April 1 and Ryleigh's on April 30. Sue and I got a chance to visit and hold the newborn a couple of hours after delivery, what a special experience. Good luck...

2015 Texas Trek

Apr 27, 2015 - Newark, Delaware

It has been a long day! The alarm goes off at 5:00. We need to be up before the workers arrive. We relax in the RV all morning. John spends time on the computer. I finish the book I am reading. Work is started on the RV at 12:30 when the parts arrive. We walk to Timothy’s for lunch. We planned on using the motorcycle today but it is overcast, windy and chilly. After lunch we have no choice but to sit in the lounge and watch TV. The RV is finished at 7:00. It has been a long day. There is no way that we are driving to a campground. We are...

Apr 26, 2015 - Newark, Delaware

Unexpected Report from Newark, Delaware: Last night we had an excellent dinner at Timothy’s. Timothy’s was in walking distance. We get a good night’s sleep. It is Sunday. We get the motorcycle out and head to Timothy’s. It does not open until 11:00 so we head to Main Street. The University of Delaware is in Newark. Main Street is great. We find one restaurant that is open early. We have another good meal. Everyone is very friendly. Our next stop is Home Depot. It takes us much time to get out of town. There is a “walk” going on. There are...

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...

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.

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...
