Dec 4, 2013 - Brunswick, GA

We left Selma yesterday getting on the road at 8:15 - early for us. Because we got away so early we decided to drive to Brunswick, Ga instead of Darien, GA as we had planned. It is about 20 miles further. We put on 381 miles which for us is a lot. We prefer to put on 250 to 300 miles. We are in a park that we have been to several times before and love. Ever since we hit Amerikamps RV park in Ashland, VA the parks have been very full with people heading south. We are amazed at how many are heading south now, we thought most people would wait...

Jul 31, 2013 - Brunswick, GA

31Jul 13 - We arrived in Brunswick GA. around 3:30PM and are staying at the Coastal GA RV Resort for the next week while we tour the area. Driving through Charleston area reminded me of the many trips I made when I was working. The sweet grass basket stands are still along 17 and look to be the same ones even. I remember my good friend and co-worker Lynn wanting to buy one until she found out how much they cost, we both were shocked! The drive was good until we were about an hour out when it started to pour rain. The rain continued until we...

Jul 14, 2013 - Overnight in GA

From Brunswick, GA ... On the Road Again Sunday, July 14, 2013 We left home at 8:00am this morning. We started out driving in steady rain in VA. After an hour or so, the constant rain ended. But then we drove through intermittent rain off and on all day. Fortunately, it was mostly brief showers. But it's still always fun to drive in rain on I-95. :) We stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel in Santee, SC. After lunch, I took the wheel and drove the rest of the way to our destination for the night. We arrived at the Best Western in Brunswick,...

On the Road Again

May 3, 2013 - More Rain

We woke up to more rain. We had planned to go to St. Simon's Island today and wanted to go to the beach. We did go to Polly and Keith's motel and rode with them as we were determined to go. We found the island but kept getting lost trying to get around and everything is in a big circle. We did find a dock that went to the beach. We walked up on the dock and the wind and rain was so bad we did not go any further. So we did what anyone in our position would do. Found Will and Sarah along with Will's Mom and Dad (who were on the island...

May 2, 2013 - Graduation Day

Well, the rain did let up during the morning which was a blessing for the graduation. We had to be signed in and checked out before we could enter the facility as it is a Homeland Security campus. They did let us in. There were about 46 men and women graduating. An Air Force officer came and explained what an OSI Special Agent was and did. I was very impressed. The graduation took awhile as they had to introduce everyone and then give all the graduates their shields and wait while each family group took pictures. Afterwards Will's Mom and...

Spring Trips 2013

Apr 21, 2013 - Moving Northward

It’s time to start the move north! Today we drove north on I-75 to Brunswick, GA and stopped at the Golden Isles RV Park. We have used this park as a stopping point in the past. It has convenient pull thru sites and good utilities. Sue is starting the recovery process from a torn lateral knee ligament. She is walking like Tim Conway and does "up with the good, down with the bad" on stairs. The doctor says it will be two to four weeks for full recovery. P.S. Rick is doing fine and recovering from pneumonia.

Apr 8, 2013 - Coastal Georgia

Slight change in plans. We're not due in Savannah for the HOP until Wednesday and the KOA where we will be staying didn't have any sites open for Monday and Tuesday. We decided to stay in Brunswick after a short trip to St. Simons Island for a DDD fix. This trip has been short on DDD visits so for lunch today we went to Southern Soul Barbeque. It looks like an old renovated gas station and it's located on a traffic circle (rotary or roundabout for those of you who live in other parts of the contry). This presented a problem for Winnie as...

Apr 7, 2013 - Brunswick

”. We had a nice get together with some of the other people from Camping World at our favorite bar for wings “Uncle Fats April 7, 2013 First week retired! Not a perfect start, backing up the truck to pack items in the shed I backed into the neighbors slide out denting his siding and pulling off the corner molding. Also destroying the rear dually fender on the truck. After a couple of hours work his siding and corner strip looked almost as good as before it was hit. The truck fender will have to be replaced but I was able to get...

Jan 9, 2013 - Brunswick, GA

The last three night we have been at Coastal RV Park in Brunswick, GA. We stayed here two years ago on our way home from Arizona and it is one of our favorite parks. The site we have backs up to a lake. The ride down was uneventful. Coming down through South Carolina we started seeing the live oaks with the moss hanging down. Yesterday we spent the day around the campground getting laundry done and getting a few groceries and just taking it easy. Today we went over to St. Simons Island. We went over there two years ago but just went to...

2013 - Florida

Dec 29, 2012 - Back "home" we go

After a busy week in Ontario it was time to go back home. Christmas eve was spent at Matt's parents home and after our Christmas morning at the Smith's we headed to Toronto for a family dinner with Matt's extended family. This week was a change for us because we had to wear coats and had snow to deal with. We sure have not missed that. An overnight snowfall made the wait at the airport an extended one. Boarding was on time, but the de-icing line-up made for a two hour delay. Once in the air things went much better. After landing in Atlanta,...

Dec 28, 2012 - Brunswick, GA

Had a good day today. We thought we'd be driving into rain, but it was dry the whole day. We started out early--on the road by 8 a.m.and 41 degrees. At 2:15 it was 51 degrees in Manning, GA. We are in Brunswick, GA for the night (reached 58 degrees), and covered 601 miles. We'll have 346 miles to cover to get to North Lake Estates, in Lakeport, FL (346 miles). No problem! We're glad that we'll arrive in the early afternoon, because we'll have a bit of work to do to get the house "up and running." Mike will have to turn the water and...

Nov 23, 2012 - Weekend plans - edited

Packing a small suitcase for our stay in Jacksonville tomorrow after a visit to St Augustine Beach. There is an evening light show on the river. Boats of all sizes will be decorated with lights and parade along the riverbanks in the downtown area. The night will end with a fireworks display from barges. We will spend the night and try to head back before all the crazies head home after the Thanksgiving weekend. Pictures to follow. The beach was deserted on a cool but otherwise beautiful day. We strolled on the beach and visited the...
