May 7, 2018 - Problem Found, Resolution On Its Way

These folks at Cummins Service Center, Albany, GA have been great so far. Ran diagnostics, located the suspected issue, ran more tests, confirmed the issue, part on its way. Apparently, it was a bad module. I'm sure Doug would be much more specific (and he can edit this post later); but for now, the needed part should be here tomorrow morning. As such, we hope to be back on our way north sometime tomorrow. Although, we'll stay longer if necessary. We want to make sure it's fixed completely before we hit the road again. The rest of the day...

May 6, 2018 - Another Day Catching Up

Today we were fortunate enough to visit with our neighbors from 89-92. Dorothy and Byron were adopted by us as grandparents for our girls (2 and 5 at that time). Thankfully they did so willingly. The family related grandparents were not local and Dorothy and Byron were right next door. Our girls (and us) could not have been luckier to have them in our lives. A lovely visit revealed that Dorothy and Byron are again/still adopted grandparents for a new batch of blessed (because of Dorothy and Byron) children. Hearing all the news was not only...

May 5, 2018 - Long Time Friends Reunite

As I mentioned previously, we were stationed in Albany from 88-92. Back then I worked for a MGySgt that was married to a GySgt and I worked with a SSgt. These folks have remained in Albany for all these years. We have all retired from the Corps and gone on to second careers. Several of us have subsequently retired from the second careers. We were fortunate enough to get together for lunch and drinks. It was like old times and an amazing visit. We feel very lucky and blessed to be able to travel and re-connect with friends that will never be...

May 4, 2018 - Looking Around the Old Stomping Ground

After a very lengthy stroll down memory lane/walk around the base, we realized while some things had remained the 'same' there had been a lot of changes in 26 years. We then headed off base to check out some of the local area. We drove by our old address. We lived in a mobile home back then. The house is no longer there, but the neighbors are. We stopped in but they weren't home. We will check back later this weekend. We had lunch at Harvest Moon. A local pub and pizzeria. Food and service was good. Atmosphere was very casual which is our...

May 3, 2018 - Lights Flashing-Love Bugs Splatting

Today was our first travel day. Polk City, FL to Albany, GA. The drive was easy and took less time than we planned. However, it was the most stressful ride to date. At least for me it was. Doug kept telling me to stop worrying about the lights. You know those pesky engine warning lights on the dash. Sure, just ignore them. Kind of like telling John McClain to "come on out to the coast." I'm happy to report that we did make it safe and sound. And had no performance issues. So maybe, just maybe, Doug wasn't wrong. Now, let's talk love bugs....

Nov 5, 2016 - Albany, GA - MCLB Albany MCCS RV Park

Our trip from Montgomery, AL to the Marine Corp Logistics Base Albany just east of Albany, GA was an easy 167 miles, mostly on US 82 which was two-lane through most of Alabama and then mostly four-lane through GA. It was tree-lined most of the way with an occasional cotton field, some picked, some begging to be picked. We are staying at the MCLB Albany RV Park on the base which has 20 sites, all but about three being used by semi-permanent residents. It is a very nice park with large, tall pines throughout the park. We have a 50 amp, full...

Oct 16, 2014 - Sylvester, GA - MCLB Albany FamCamp

It was a very easy 166 mile drive to the Marine Corp Logistics Base near the county line between Albany and Sylvester, GA. We had no rain for a change and was quickly set up after arriving. There are a few love bugs still around so we had to wash them off before leaving to visit friends. The FamCamp is very nice with 50 amp full hookup sites that are very long pull-throughs that are unlevel enough we like to put boards down under the low side so as not to stress the jacks. We have good Verizon and a satellite acquisition was quick and easy...

WHAT'S NEW IN 2014

Jul 13, 2014 - RAY CHARLES

We went to Albany , Ga to see the flint river. The river was inportant to a town, people would travel by boat to get around the country in the eaarly days of the U.S.A. This earthcache was for us to see the coral rocks that was in the river and we got to see and read about the area. This area was under water millions of years ago by the oceans of the world. Now we get to see the river bottoms that was once a coral reef. We also got to see a toll bridge house that would charge people to use the bridge to cross the flint river, as yoy came...

WHAT'S NEW IN 2014

Nov 5, 2013 - Albany, GA - MCLB Albany FamCamp

Our trip from Clanton, AL to Albany, GA was 208 miles under varying intensities of liquid sunshine: from a light drizzle to heavy downpours. I guess I should have figured that would happen since we just had the Mothership washed and waxed. Fortunately, it was still raining so hard when we were setting up, it managed to rinse it back off pretty well. Unfortunately, it negated taking any pictures of the trip. I know this will upset some of you but most will probably take this more favorably!! :) We did nothing here but have a great visit with...

Oct 8, 2012 - Albany, GA - Albany MCLB FamCamp

It was an uneventful, easy ride of 108 miles from Macon down to Albany, GA. We left a little earlier than we had wanted due to a storm system coming in and we managed to miss it except for a couple of sprinkles. We are staying at the Marine Corp Logistics Base FamCamp just East of Albany. They have installed eight new 50 amp, full hookup, pull-through sites in the middle of the loop that is mainly used by transients like us. On the outside of the loop they have 12 more back-in sites that are used for long term stays. The eight transient...

Jun 1, 2012 - On the road again!

There is something exhilarating about sliding behind the wheel of the motorhome, firing up the big diesel engine and rolling out of the campsite at the beginning of a new adventure. It is fuel for the soul. It’s a beautiful day ~ bright sunshine, blue sky and puffy white clouds. Too soon I will be stuck on crowded interstate highways, so I opt to stay on back country roads for the first leg of this journey. True Americana ~ two lane country roads, passing farms and fields lush with cotton, corn, peanuts and cattle. Farmhouses and abandoned,...
