Flat Luke went on a whirlwind tour of our nation's capital, Washington, DC. He saw FDR's memorial, Abraham Lincoln's memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr.s memorial, Korean and Vietnam War memorials. He even had time to drink coffee and eat gelato. It was a long day!

Dec 3, 2014 - Washington, DC

We took the train from Richmond, VA to Washington, DC for the night. Brian wanted to meet with Senator Collins to discuss bringing industrial hemp back to the State of Maine. Unfortunately, she was " in session " voting so we spoke with another colleague. We did end up in the elevator with her,though! We have been doing a lot of walking around the City and even had to stop to allow the President's motorcade to cross in front of us! We have seen quite a few monuments, ate lunch in Chinatown and we caught the Lakers vs Capitals NBA game! ...

Our Road Trip

Oct 29, 2014 - Washington, DC

Hello Everyone, Today we traveled from Delaware to Maryland, and Washington, DC! We stayed at Cherry Hill Park Campground which is one of the closest campgrounds to downtown DC, and it was beautiful! They also offered a free bus trip into the city every day which dropped you off at Union Station where you could catch any of the trains/busses to anywhere in the city! We were there 4 days, and it was not enough time to see everything…but we tried! We visited the White House, the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, the Jefferson...

Oct 10, 2014 - Washington DC

We arrived at the Cherry Hill Campground in College Park, MD at 11AM and signed up for the night tour of DC leaving the park at 6 PM and returning 11:30. The monuments were beautifully lit up for night. The next morning we left on the day tour at 6:45AM and visited more of the attractions, monuments and museums until 6PM. Friday we drove to the metro station and took the train down to the Washington Monument. We were about halfway through the National Holocaust Museum when we were evacuated because of a fire alarm. After waiting an hour in...

Sep 20, 2014 - A Day in D.C.

I have to say I was dreading going to Washington today. I wanted to see the sites but you can't drive in so it was the Metro train in and then walking to see the sites. Well .. when we got there Chris had rented Segways for us and what a grand day it was. I only fell off twice but was much slower than your average rider. I had a great time and got to see all the sites. We were on the Segway for 2 1/2 hours. We then went out to eat and had a great meal before heading back to our campsite. It was great to spend time with Chris.

Sep 13, 2014 - Nashville to Washington DC - USA

When we left you it was Saturday 6th September and we we're exploring Nashville. We drove into the city centre and visited the Johnny Cash museum which was very enjoyable with various memorabilia and video footage of the majority of his career. In the afternoon we visited Centennial park and the Parthenon which is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. In the evening we went to the Grand Ole Opry which is a live show and radio programme that has been...

Sep 4, 2014 - Washington DC

Moved from Pennsylvania to outside of Washington DC. Caught the metro in Virginia and rode to the Capital on Tuesday the 4th. I loved it and Linda liked riding the metro. We have never seen so much traffic and it was moving not stop and go. I have been rating drivers on our journey's and they might be the best. They have plenty of room between vehicles and no cutting in and out. While I am on that Denver has the worst or the rudest they cut you off and won't let you in and next is Massachusetts they are the opposite they merge slow and it...

Don't wake me up

Aug 25, 2014 - Washington DC

First things first: CONGRATULATIONS TO HANNAH AND IAN ON THEIR 2ND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! Sorry there's so many photos, but the city demands it. We had one whole day to squeeze in as much sight seeing as possible, so our busy day started at 8:30am and we didn't stop until we crawled into the hotel bar at 10:30pm for a nightcap. In hindsight, Washington DC needs about 5 days to do it justice. When we arrived yesterday, we were able to meet up with a former colleague of Julie's who taught with her in Malaysia. Erin is an American from Ohio,...

Aug 24, 2014 - Stephens City, VA to Washington DC

Who said Julie would miss going to school? We arrived in Washington DC at about 1:30pm and had returned the hire car by 3pm, having driven a total of 5,127 miles over 6 weeks. No dings. No speeding tickets. No sunglasses (left them in the hire car). Fantastic hotel in Washington DC - well done Sandra. We'd recommend The Hotel George to anyone. Not expensive, brilliant position, great staff and free wine at 5pm each day :-)...

Jul 10, 2014 - Day 2 --- Washington DC

Got to Washington at 6:30 freakin am. (over an hour early) Everybody that we talk to is friendly. We got brave and figured out how to use the metro rail. We rode it to the closest station to the zoo. Um, then we had to walk a quarter of a mile up the hill to the zoo. But its OK, the zoo is awesome of course. Then, ok, I'll admit it, my butt is tired, so we catch a cab. The driver is cool and we have just enough time to run to the monuments before heading back to the station. Up to this point, we have had a great day. Now its time to board...

Jul 4, 2014 - Trip Rpt. No. 8. -- Free at Last; Frolic and Detour

Yes, I am enjoying my trip even more that I expected. And, I am learning a lot about history and geography as well as how not to pack a car for a five-month trip. Not surprisingly, I over-packed, but that is a genetic trait from my Mother's family. It is always the parent's fault. I was also a tad worried that I would not like the "transitory" lifestyle ("transitory" was the nicest substitute that I could think for "vagabond") -- but I have found that roaming around the country not knowing where I would be in five days and not having an...

Jun 30, 2014 - Capitol 4th...and then some!

After a few week of walking in the footsteps of our founding fathers and reliving events leading up to our country's declaration of independence, what better place to spend the Fourth of July than the nation's capital. Andrews Air Force Base will be our jumping off point for all the activities here for the next week - not to mention that there are three championship golf courses located within 5 minutes of the RV without leaving the base...time to get my golf on! Our first stop is the U.S. Naval Academy @ Annapolis, MD. We didn't realize...
