Sep 29, 2020 - Time is flying by

Well where to start before we left Brandenburg we had lunch with friends in the park. We had rode the Surrey down and as we were leaving a young gentleman came over and asked about our ride. He was going to write and article about the river front for the Meade County paper. Anyway we ended up in the article with a little information about us and a picture it is a conversation starter. If you didn't know, we bought a Jeep Gladiator in June. So you know how kids are someone in Canada started ducking jeeps. It's called #duckduckjeep also...

Aug 12, 2020 - Back to Flordia

It was good to get back to the beach. Thankfully the storm that we waited out before we came back didn't amount to anything. I've been riding my bike in the morning. Down below the pier on the none driving part of the beach there are still 21 turtle nest marked off so the tides didn't even get high enough to wash them out. Which is good they have a hard enough time making it to adulthood. A lot of critters like the taste of them probably taste like chicken. I've been getting my cleansing in the ocean it's warm like bath water. It's just...

Jun 5, 2020 - Still Kicking in Florida

Almost 2 months since our last post. Everything Is getting back to normal. May 4th restaurants opened starting with 25% occupancy then on the 18th it went to 50% the hotels opened up the 23rd. I'm like a lot of people I don't understand how they determine which stores should be open and others closed if your doing safe distancing. I continued to bike ride up to 6 miles on a good day also picked up trash on the beach a few times. I don't understand why people throw cigarette butts down. Linda's been doing the pool exercise thing and...

Mar 18, 2020 - It's good to be home

I ended up getting a plane ticket for $53 and I would have paid whatever to get back down south. Everyone in Kentucky said they hadn't had a winter but I tell you it felt like winter to me. I was cold the whole time there and I had my winter clothes on how's that for a lot of whining. I flew out yesterday the 17th and the plane was empty. I got on last and I counted around 40 people. I had a window seat all to myself no one on my roll. My Uber guy showed up right when I hit the door almost. I believe Linda was even glad to see me. Today I...

Jan 22, 2020 - Winter in Daytona Beach Shores

We hope everyone that reads this is having a Blessed Year. January seems to be winter here the ocean is down to 63 degrees. The week of the 12th we had a low of 43 degrees but during the day it would be in the 60's and 70's and sunny. That's not bad if you live on the south side of the building because it blocks the wind coming out of the north. Yesterday was windy 20-30 MPH winds,today we are having gale force winds getting gusts up to 45 MPH. The temp is 52 with a wind chill in the 40's now that's cold. We have heat so it's not a problem...

December 12th Linda had surprise visitors. Tammy had talked to me a month before about coming to Texas and surprising Linda for her birthday.

So she decided they would fly in the Dec.12 to Florida Linda had no idea they were coming she thought Tammy was out of vacation. They had came down last year for Christmas and hated that they couldn't come this year. She even made the statement that maybe we should be in Kentucky next Christmas. I knew she was missing them and...

Nov 1, 2019 - Just some pictures

That was the 2nd bicycle the building manager has given me. Someone stole the first one it was an old Disney bike. I was pretty sure someone would take it. It was too nice for me I don’t have to worry about this one. There has been a lot of big cruisers heading south on the (Halifax River)intercoastal waterway for the winter. We have done a few things went out to the big flea market. It goes on Friday thru Sunday and the 1st Saturday of the month they have a car show. Daytona Beach Shores had a Oktoberfest with music and a German meal....

Oct 30, 2019 - I'm Back

It's been awhile since I have updated the trip journal. I thought about quitting but there are several people that still follow us. For 7 years in our travels we handed out cards with the trip journal information on it. We don't know who reads it but we still have lots of followers. We pray that everyone that reads it are having a blessed life. Our lives seem pretty dull anymore but I'm not complaining. Most days consist of a bicycle ride down to the pier to talk to the fisherman or other people I have gotten to know walking the beach or...

We flew back Sunday the 22nd and it was a good flight with a good Uber driver hauling us home. We also had a good driver on the Kentucky end Tammy. Her and Cassidy picked us up Saturday evening and we spent the night with them. Then hauled us to the airport for a 10am flight we were home before 1pm. Time is flying by once again now that we’re here It’s Crazy. Went down to the farm to see how the timber is doing. Looks like some of it is ready to cut. I still do the same thing when I'm in the woods. Looking or hunting as soon as I see a...
