Apr 9, 2014 - On the move!

We got a pretty good start this morning, after saying our goodbyes, and headed north on I95. We have decided to do some outlet shopping at Destin, Florida. From Ormond Beach we drove north-west toward Lake City on County Road 100. It was a secondary road, and a lot more interesting than staying on the Interstate to Jacksonville and then heading west to Lake City. Tonight we are camped at Big Oak RV Park in Tallahassee. We had intended to stay at the nearby Tallahassee East KOA, except when we stopped to register they told us their wifi was...

Apr 9, 2014 - April 8 - Day 5

The only good thing about leaving Key West was the beautiful sunrise we drove toward as we left on Rt. 1 We listened to Jimmy Buffett as we watched the Keys disappear in the rear view mirror. We headed back toward the "mainland" and drove toward the panhandle and are now heading west! As we starting driving west, I noticed Chooie twitching as we went by swampy areas. I asked if he was ok, and he was, just having Ranger School flashbacks!! For those of you who don't know, the swamp phase of Ranger School is conducted near here. This was the...

Mar 20, 2014 - Mission San Luis

We visited the Mission San Luis State Park. It was the site of a 1600's Spanish Mission and home to as many as 1500 Spanish settlers, soldiers and Apalachee Indians. Some of the major buildings have been reconstructed and the park staff conducts living history in period costume. We went to MoMo's Pizzeria and brewery for lunch.

Jan 18, 2014 - Dining and Traveling

Yesterday was a relaxation day with a visit to the Tybee Island beach thrown in. For dinner we found ourselves at Uncle Bubba's Seafood where we agreed the Charbroiled oysters were quite worthy of being a house specialty which could easily have been a main course. Oysters, shrimp and scallops made up the main course and there were no leftovers on my plate! I decided dessert should be had, but Linda passed, or so she said. Our very kind server suggested I sample the key lime pie. When it arrived, an extra spoon had been placed upon my plate....

No Snow For Us

Dec 14, 2013 - Bookclub Party and Vern CPA

Thursday night, Blanca and David has the annual Book Club White Elephant party. Pot luck dinner with everyone bringing a dish. So very good! Then as always, there were some popular books which were taken several times and some Christmas shopping for readers in families. It was wonderful to see and catch up with former neighbors: jobs, children, health, fun and challenging times. This is a group of world travelers and having them describe their adventures was confirmation that God made a beautiful world. Friday met with Vern Sanders, our...

Dec 11, 2013 - No brakes on rig- love Capital Hitch

Danny took rig into Capital Hitch as follow up to our stop into town. We were anticipating electrical issue to the brakes. Dear Father in heaven, We praise you for safe travels! Discovered that our brake pads were covered with grease and worn to nothing in spots. In June, we had our brakes pulled and lubricated in Goshen by a reputable company. Jim educated Danny on the difference and positives to disc brakes. We will put those on our wish list and do in two years when these brakes will need to be replaced. They only had one set of pads in...

Dec 8, 2013 - Tallahassee

The landscape has noticeably changed now that we're in Tallahassee. There's more pine trees and less palm trees plus there's hills! Our RV Park was nestled among the pine trees and provided a nice change. Some more strange rules though. This one said no washers & dryers - huh? Barb thought maybe she should ask before using her curling iron:) One funny moment - a $2 million dollar Prevost motor home pulled in and after getting setup, they walked over and used the park's showers (which reminded us of outhouses). What a shame to let that...

Dec 7, 2013 - Game day with the Saxons

Watched FSU VS Duke, so one sided at Gail and Fred's. Gail had lots of photos on her IPad to show. They have enjoyed these first months of Gail's retirement and a 25th wedding anniversary. Fred grilled, Gail prepared vegs, Danny brought a pound cake for a special meal with special friends. It was wonderful to catch up with them. We tried to convenience them to join in our travels and mission work. They are already looking at options, I am certain that by this time next year they will serving the Lord where he wants them.

Dec 5, 2013 - Meme and Danny's glasses

Saw our ophthalmologist, Judith Clay on Wed. Danny's glasses were adjusted lower, now he can see thru the appropriate lens without moving his head so much. The little things in life! We also had a wonderful chat to catch up on each others lives. We are so blessed to have a healthcare provider who is a friend. Today we stayed with Meme during the day, had the chance to see her in therapy. We also obtained a one handed fork and plate bar for her, which OT expects to provide her with more independence with her feeding. She has no movement in...

Oct 13, 2013 - Tallahassee FL

And again, nothing thrilling to report, but we were busy all day. We left here at 10:00ish and met Mark at his apartment near FSU and gave him some surprise 7 Layer Bars. Well, not really a surprise – Michele makes them for him every time we see him up here – she also made some for Kyle, Sara and Kyle’s new roommates. They are a big hit and I fear she now has them expecting them every time we come through here. She is a lot more popular up here than I am – go figure. We left him because he had to pack to go to Universal Studios Halloween...

Oct 12, 2013 - Tallahassee FL

Today worked out pretty much as planned except for one minor glitch. We took off right at 10:00 with the intent of doing some errands before the kids came over. We were at McDonalds grabbing a quick, delicious, nutritious breakfast when the campground called and said we had to move. Seems the spot they gave us when we checked in was already reserved by someone – their fault – so we finished eating and MB left me off to move the bus while she did her errands. In the grand scheme of things, no big deal, just an inconvenience. MB did her...

Oct 11, 2013 - Tallahassee FL

We are back in the home time zone so we are officially one step closer to the end. Since today was a drive day there isn’t much to report. We went to breakfast and then packed up and were on the road at 10:30 for the painless 3 hour drive to Big Oak RV Park in Tally. Just like Camp Red Bay, this place is starting to feel just like home too. We got set up, I scheduled an RV service with a shop in Ocala for next Tuesday, I fell into a nap and then we went to Publix – there; that pretty much sums up the highlights of our day. Tomorrow we will...
