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,...

Aug 9, 2011 - Hershey's World of Chocolate

Went to Hershey's World of Chocolate today. What a treat watching all the candy being made and learning the history of how our candybars make it to the supermarkets. They bring all the cocoa beans and sugar in by train as there's too much of it for trucks. They actually go through 230 Million gallons of milk a day in production, can you imagine?! The cocoa beans are shelled and crushed and go through lots of refining to get to the soft cocoa powder. Then they add sugar, milk, flavorings and other ingredients to make the candy. They...

Aug 7, 2011 - Maryland/Pennsylvania

Left Georgia on our way to Pennsylvania. Went through Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland getting here. All of these states are beautiful farmland and Pennsylvania, which is Amish country, has the greenest grass I've ever seen for this time of year. It's absolutely beautiful. Instead of seeing storm evacuation routes like we do down south, they have snow evacuation routes here. Really pretty country, but wouldn't want to live here because it does get really bad in the winter....

Jul 3, 2011 - Plains, GA/Marine Corp Logistics Base Campground

We're staying at the Marine Corp Logistics Base in Albany, GA until we return home later this week. It has a nice campground out in the woods where deer come visit everyday, but it's only a mile down the road to the commissary and exchange, so it's very convenient. We drove over to Plains, GA today to visit Jimmy Carter's childhood homeplace. We saw where he currently lives, but the public has no access obviously and there's a large fence around the property and has a security gate. He grew up on a rather nice farm. There are still horses...

Jun 6, 2009 - Montgomery to Albany

We left late again and followed the GPS to Albany....however, it took us all the way up to Columbus and not on Hiway 82 as we had originally planned. The longer trip along with the time change caused us to be late for the wedding. We arrived when the pictures were being made (Sherwood Baptist Church). We were honored to be asked to have a photo with the new bride and groom. We met Tommy's dad Jim and saw his mother Sheila again. The reception was great with tons of good food. We also ran into Jay Flynt (Ben McDonald's cousin) who played at...

Nov 8, 2007 - To Albany, Georgia

Today was "one of those days." In the wee hours I was awakened by the chirping of my carbon monoxide detector. I had to crawl out of my warm bed to change the battery. I had set my thermostat on 55 degrees, so it was a bit chilly. After this, it took me a long time to get back to sleep. It didn't help that a train came through every thirty minutes or so. When I got up again at 8:00, I discovered that I had forgotten to turn the water heater on. I reset the alarm and went back to bed to wait until the water was hot. By the time I was...

Oct 1, 2007 - Fixing the Slide Out

Well, today, we have to get the RV sorted. Up early and now we need to go and find a sheer pin!!!! Hopefully that will do the job and we can head out of Florida into Georgia. Will keep you posted. Right...trip into Ocala to get sheer pins. Very nice guy called Nick helped us out and for the sum total of $5 we have our slide out in so we will set off in about 30 minutes for our 5 hour drive up to Albany in Georgia. We haven't tested the slide yet but will wait until we are in Montgomery for 3 days to try it. Not a problem - we can easily...

Jun 13, 2007 - Chehaw Wild Animal Park

We drove to a small animal park out side of Albany, Ga, they have a campgrounds also. We spent two days there, gary and norma were about the only people in the campgrounds. This was first part of June and not a lot of people or dog's were camping. It was nice to be able to walk around the zoo and to be able to take your time and not have to run from place to place like at Disney Word. The small zoo had every thing that a big zoo has, but not the people elbow to elbow. Or paw to Paw !!!! Gary started a fire that night and we all had seats...
