We filled it as much as we could with our portable then a little more with the one they had at the RV Park, then went on our way, stopping at the first truck stop to add more air. We made it safely to our next destination in Galesburg with a tire going flat and the check engine light on in the truck. When we got here we found a...

West Coast Trip 2011

Sep 26, 2009 - Galesburg, Illinois

Another day on the road has brought us to the east side of the Mississippi River and the small community of Galesburg, Illinois. This is just about 40 miles west of Peoria. The campground is an old KOA so it has that look--long pull-thru grassy sites, big trees, A-frame buildings and camping cabins. It is now a Holiday Trav-L-Park. We didn’t even unhitch; we want an early start tomorrow. Two more days and we should be pulling into our site in Nashville. You may be wondering why we are making such a mad dash to get back to Tennessee. The...

Oct 5, 2008 - Travels with Glenda 4-13

Travels with Glenda 4-13 As we headed back to the Mississippi River and the Quad Cities area we encountered another rainy day. It varied from a light mist to blinding downpours as we went west and the front moved east. We managed to get the rig set up between the raindrops. The next day we headed into Moline, IL to visit the John Deere factory and then over to Rock Island and the Army arsenal. Rock Island started as a munitions factory and also served as a civil war prison. The factory is still in operation producing various weapons for...

Travels with Glenda

Mar 4, 2008 - Home Again

Well, here we are back in Galesburg. There jst isn't much to say since we had hoped to be traveling by now, but the house still isn't sold. We had a wonderful time traveling down south and spending a few moments with some of the guys who served in Vietnam with 7th Communications Battalion, 1st Marine Division. It was amazing when Cecil Byrd and I were comparing stories and discovered we were both at the NCO Club when an artilery shell landed very close to us. We were in different Companies and didn't know each other at the time, but this...

Jan 22, 2008 - Home and Exhausted

Well, we were released to come home this morn. After processing out in Peoria, we got home around 2:30PM. We found about 4' of new snow on the drive which of course I had to use my snowblower on. After a short nap we went out to eat at our favorite restruant and then I went over to church to continue help with the Narthex building program. Still waiting for a buyer so will be here for a while yet.

Dec 20, 2007 - Home for Christmas

Thursday morning we heard that another storm was heading for Tulsa. Since the roads were clear we decided it was time to run for home. Leaving the Tulsa area we went up I-44 and made it to Rolla, MO, by dark. We stayed at a camp ground and emptied all our tanks and drained what we could. On Friday we stopped near St. Louis, MO, to visit with Ron Elkins, another 7th Comm'er who is helping me plan our next reunion. After coffee we ran for home, arriving just after dark. So this concludes our traveling for awhile. We plan on being with family...

May 6, 2007 - Sandburg Country

May 5th We spent the entire day at the antique center until we both were pooped - bought several boxes of books that we shipped home. It was cloudy with misty rain blowing in the wind - a good day to spend indoors. May 6th - Mile 972 A pure Interstate day. Sundays are good Interstate days - fewer trucks and less traffic in general. Finished all of Ohio and Indiana before lunch and then did more than half of Illinois in the afternoon. Ohio improved in the western half - not exactly beautiful - just not so awful ugly. Indiana was better than...
