Jun 28, 2020 - Major Changes to Our Plans

Every day is a new thought with the Corona Virus. Given the fact that our original route took us through a number of cities that were hot spots, we have changed our itinerary significantly so we can avoid the cities. We thought it best to avoid Phoenix Chicago and Robinson where we hoped to visit family, given the fact that we would be passing through some very 'sick' areas. Our new route adds quite a few new spots, primarily in Utah as recommended by a good friend. Once we get through Utah, we will decide if it is ok to continue out to...

Sep 20, 2019 - The Trip Comes to an End

Another great trip has come to an end. We arrived home safely with a lot of great memories from the trip. The bad part of this is the amount of work to get reorganized and get back to normal life. We traveled a little over 7000 mile in the RV and put about 2800 mile on our car on the little side trips. Now we begin planning our next adventure. Our plan for next spring is a trip west through the southern states, along the Rio Grande, up to the Grand Canyon and then a tour of about 7 of the western national parks. We aren't sure how long...

Sep 8, 2018 - We Made it Home

Well it certainly has been a great trip and one that we will never forget. We had been planning this trip for over 15 years and we are so thankful that we finally got the opportunity to do it. After 3 1/2 months of travel, you would think that being home would feel great. Frankly, I wish it wasn't over yet. It is nice sleeping in our own bed but being on the road was an extremely free and exhilarating experience. So, for a recap, we traveled 16000 miles in the RV and another 2000 on the scooter. Total of 18000 glorious miles. In an addition...

Jan 26, 2010 - The Indian River or is it?

Tuesday....January 26, 2010 Oasis RV Park, Grant, FL We are enjoying the warm weather and really are glad we decided to come south. It is so cold and icky at home, I don't envy anyone for the weather they are having up north. I feel a little guilty that we are having such wonderful warm weather...but I'm going to enjoy it anyway ;-D The water here is like what we had in Arizona, so we've been getting bottled water to drink and cook with. It's hard for me to imagine that it doesn't come from the tap tasting so good, like the water at home...
