North to Alaska 2019

Oct 19, 2019 - Bushnell, FL

Today was rainy, we went for breakfast and left around 10:30 for the RV. We had BLT’s for lunch and went to the 3pm attitude adjustment. We went to dinner (pot luck) and played games until 9pm. We then watched the Yankee’s play baseball. Nothing for pictures....

Oct 20, 2018 - relaxing trip

I left Walmart about 8 AM with half a bottle of Pepsi for my caffeine and some Belvita bites to munch on for a breakfast. Three hours later, I stopped for gas and ate lunch at Dennys - a patty melt and fries. I stopped again at my favorite rest area on 75 because it has a walkway to view a prairie. I couldn't stay because it is still quite warm and the mosquitoes love it! I did grab a letterbox there, though. I got to the campground mid-afternoon and took awhile to set up because it isn't level. The front tires are still off the ground, but...

Mar 17, 2018 - Distilleries, Wineries and Breweries and some History too

Another long one, if you want to just look at the pictures here's the synopsis: some cold weather (even frost), baseball, beach with friends, St Augustine FL, Savannah GA, history, distilleries, breweries and wineries, more golf and activities at the park, finally getting warm again. Otherwise, read on and enjoy! Our wonderful and different winter in Florida, and our time in Paradise, is slowly coming to an end. In one week we will head out and start our way back home. The weather back home is still snow and freezing, and just so those back...

Feb 20, 2018 - Another Day In Paradise

Getting used to being in Florida could take a while. The weather here has been up and down... some mornings we have the heater on and then in the evening, the air conditioning kicks in. Some days you wake up to fog and then it burns off by mid morning... and it's boat drinks by the pool...we look at the weather that our families are having back home we realize how privileged we are to be spending this time south for the winter. Since our Key West trip, life has been pretty boring....we have filled our days playing a little pickle ball,...

Jan 13, 2018 - Begining of Winter

As we look at the calendar, we see that we’ve been here almost two weeks already. Now many of you reading this I know will understand how we feel… We’ve been here 2 weeks and still haven’t had a chance to go for a swim… it’s been just terribly cold down south. We even had a couple of nights with frost… it’s just awful. The first day back we packed up and took the bus to get new front tires (the old ones were over 10 years old and starting to crack and buckle, definitely time) and filled up on propane… knowing that the weather was going to...

Jan 2, 2018 - Back in Paradise :-)

Just a quick note today to say we are safely parked at the bus in Florida. It was another long day of driving with lots of traffic (we’re certainly not the only snowbirds heading south!) and Mike was again getting frustrated with slow drivers in the fast lane! While we talked about the traffic and accidents yesterday, we didn’t mention some of the beautiful scenery. As we passed the tip of Lake Ontario, the trees were covered with huge dollops of snow, from the lake effect snow dumps they had last week. This morning, heading into the...

Jan 1, 2018 - It's Winter

It's a new year and like we say to each other every year, this past year has been the best, and it has. When we were last speaking to you all we were planning on our trip home for the holidays. Well we knew our twin grand daughters were due within the next few weeks so it was time to pack up our bus and start heading home, better safe than sorry. Mike winterized the bus (he put antifreeze in all the water lines), we put away all our lawn stuff and pulled in our slides, only leaving the fridge plugged in. We were ready, so we jumped in the...

Dec 21, 2017 - Update from Bushnell Fl

Good morning to our trip journal followers. It would appear that our writing is a bit behind. Anyone who is retired or not might understand how days turn into weeks and time flies without even realizing it. So we have a little catching up to share all that has transpired in the last three or so weeks. Our visit to Orange City was a wonderful time spent with Jack & Loretta. From there we packed up, loaded the toad (car) on, which we are starting to get the hang of, and headed out. Next stop proved to be a bit of a disappointment due to our...

Nov 9, 2017 - Florida in the Fall

Hello all. Life as retired old persons seems to treat us well. We've been parked here now for almost a month and it's getting to be time to head back north for the arrival of the twins. Since we've been here, we've golfed a half dozen times at a crazy price of $15 each - with a riding cart... and the course is great, only problem - Michelle has beat Mike every time. Mike thinks that the committee needs to re-evaluate the handicap system. We can't wait to get back to resume our golf routine in the new year. We have enjoyed seeing all the...

Oct 24, 2017 - Slowly Settling In

Michelle had a great time in Ottawa visiting the kids and in Toronto, at our neice's baby shower. When she was done, it was time to do the 20hr drive back south to the RV in Florida. While Michelle was away for the week, Mike got caught up on chores. Michelle had left a HoneyDo list on the whiteboard of things like insulating back windows, putting up sun shade extensions on the large awning, fixing little bits here and there and he changed the water filter under the kitchen sink. He also washed part of the kitchen floor after noticing the...

Oct 10, 2017 - North South North South North

Okay, what could ever go wrong when your travelling the dream trip of a lifetime? Yesterday we pulled into our park for the winter... with both of us we in the 'Here for a long time' frame of mind. But then the reality hit us. Michelle had to head back to Canada for our niece's baby shower, and it seems that all the rental cars in the area were evacuated along with the arrival of hurricane Nate. After setting up camp yesterday, today we ended up having to pull up our jacks and drive back north 30 miles to a local airport where there was the...
