Jul 12, 2019 - Michigan City

We are in Michigan City for one night - on the road again. Yesterday we just vegged at the Eagle and it was a comfortable day as the cold front has come through. Weather is just outstanding. We are here one night and then on to Oshkosh to see how coming in a week early will be.

Apr 17, 2019 - Michigan City, not in Michigan

Well today was a good day... some might say. We were up early again and with no rain yet, we got on the road before the storms arrived, rolling by 7:30am. Today we did 3 states - again. We left Wisconsin, drove quickly through Illinois (except for Chicago!) and then into Indiana driving around the bottom of Lake Michigan. Now let's go back to this part about Chicago. When we were last here, 20 years ago, the drive seemed to just zip by then, why would it not be a repeat of that trip? This time through Chicago was ... well, let us just say,...

Mar 15, 2019 - The Dangers of Quitting Drinking Cold Turkey: Grand Mal Seizures, Dehydration, and then some

One out of each 12 grown-ups in the United States experiences liquor reliance, making liquor the most normally utilized addictive substance in America, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) reports. Drinking a lot of liquor routinely can make the mind become acclimated to the manner in which that liquor meddles with synapse transmission, development, and assimilation. At the point when liquor enters the cerebrum, it causes dimensions of dopamine and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric corrosive) to be expanded. Both are...

Jul 30, 2018 - Michigan city

This is a good place, we are in the same spot as last year. No problems getting through Chicago. Their tolls are $45+, adds another 75 cents each time for who an out of state toll clicker. We didn’t buy diesel at the first oasis but should have because for some reason the other ones have higher prices and are just fully packed. No place to park so we parked on the side of the road on the outbound ramp along with other trucks. Very noisy. Had to put the shades down so the cats wouldn’t be so affected by all the traffic.

2018 Trip

Jul 30, 2017 - Michigan city

The drive from Oshkosh was rough and congested. Milwaukee is still under construction and the road is in terrible shape still. Chicago was mainly heavy traffic, the ezpass lane was slow too and then we went through construction on I94 that slowed us down. Michigan city campground filled up, we didn't speak to other coaches but I bet some were from Oshkosh. In the AM we were sagging toward the front, called Troy at Fleetwood and we are going back there as he can look at us Wednesday. I called several chassis places - all one to three week...

Jul 13, 2017 - Hello New Transmission

. "Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, Healthy, free, the world before me, The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose." - Walt Whitman (1819-1892) . Whitman wrote his poem before the invention of paved highways. If I were following "the long brown path before me" today, it would mean the RV ahead of me has a leaking holding tank. . Day 1: Saturday July 1 . Hazel and I had a breakdown on Interstate 80 this afternoon, about 50 miles into Indiana. Not sure, it might be the tranny, but our noble beast "The Hazel...

Jul 9, 2014 - Arrival in Indiana

Another easy driving day through Ohio and into Indiana. Beautiful farms in Ohio and not too great service centers on the Indiana Turnpike. Ohio's service centers, however, were worthy of our presence. Tomorrow will be a test of our driving comfort as we travel from southeast to northwest Chicago on our way to Wisconsin. Praying for a shortage of "precious" drivers. Sorry for the picture shortage, but we're just rolling along and haven't stopped to look at anything. Here are a couple of Destiny pics for your viewing enjoyment.

May 13, 2014 - Michigan City

Drove by my old house in Michigan City's Long Beach. It took awhile to recognize the neighborhood since part of the land had been used to build two large homes and therefore the original house, which is small, was hardly visible. Sometimes CHANGE is hard to deal with! Had wanted to take Justice to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore; home to the biggest living sand dune in the area, Mount Baldy. Mount Baldy is roughly 125 feet tall & shifts about four feet per year; burying trees and everything else in its path. Unfortunately the park was...

Sep 6, 2013 - Michigan City, IN and a side trip to Chicago, IL

Our next stop was to visit great friends in Michigan City, Indiana. This was a sort of Carrollton -Farmers Branch friendship reunion, since we met up with Steve and Barb Sobkowiak (who were visiting Steve’s home town of Michigan City), Mary and Wayne Harris again (we stayed at the same RV park in town), Ken and Kimberly Brand (ho were staying with Steve and Barb), and Steve’s good friends Craig, Terry, and Donna. We took a tour of Steve’s home town, narrated in detail by Steve, walked out to the Michigan City lighthouse on Lake Michigan....

Jun 12, 2013 - Temple Square

Our host at Wild Flower B & B, Cil, served us Eggs Benedict for breakfast this morning. This was not Ron's thing, but I enjoyed it. We found our way to Temple Square again. While Ron was on his own (He bought me a lovely silver necklace with a forget-me-not on it. My favorite flower.) I worked at the Family Research Center for about three hours. With the help of a, Sister, I found a 1910 census of my grandfather Schroeder's family when my Dad was 12. It also stated that he came here in 1903. Next I went to the second floor where the records...

Jun 10, 2013 - Wagon Wheel Ruts

After leaving our cozy little cabin we had to drive a while to find a restaurant. We found a cafe/gas station/bar and grocery store. While waiting for our food I bought a small bottle if Dorothy Lynich salad dressing for $4. Its made with tomato soup. From there it was easy to find Ash Hollow State park and the first evidence that a wagon train passed this way.They were at a distance, but we could see them. We met a Lady with her grown daughter coming down from the rocks above us where you could actually step into them. They were from Santa...

Jun 9, 2013 - Dorothy Lynch salad dressing

We started out in the morning with gray skys. The white windmill farms we passed along the way were in stark contrast against a dark gray sky. The scenery was lush and rolling. Every once in a while the sun would pop out and highlight the distant farms. I asked Ron to take the parallel road so I could see the farms better. The ribbon of a road went up and down past many an interesting farm. Ron let me wander for a whole five minutes and then we turned back. We were on the Lincoln Highway. Before we crossed into Nebraska at Council Bluff we...
