Sep 19, 2019 - Back Home in Indiana

Not a bad day of traveling. We switched back and forth from I70 and US 40. I70 is a terrible road east of Indianapolis with lots of unevenness and pot holes that shook Winnie. Much smoother driving on US 40 and very little traffic and much more relaxing. I screwed up when we got to Indianapolis on US 40 when I chose top get back on the Interstate. the ramp onto I465 South was closed which was the way I wanted to go, so I got on I465 North and after a short distance it was bumper to bumper as far as you could see. Another bad decision to get...

Jul 28, 2019 - Day 16

Today we had two goals for the day. We wanted to visit Rockville, billed as the covered bridge capitol of the world. Second we wanted to get closer to Chicago, Monday's destination. We started the day with our usual routine, and were on the road around 10:15. It was a 1.5 hour drive to Rockville. After stopping for gas, we arrived around noon. We drove around the town for a while, expecting to see signs or something to direct us to the bridges. Nothing. We did see a sign painted on a building that said the covered bridge festival happened...

Cross Country Train

Oct 7, 2018 - Waterville, OH to Terre Haute, IN

Didn’t even need the air conditioning last night as the rain cooled down the temperatures. Mickey and Jim made us a wonderful breakfast of egg, mushroom etc. scramble, bacon, salsa, avocado, toast, yogurt berries, granola and coffee! Mickey had us all laughing with tears rolling down our cheeks. Told her she needed to save some for April when she comes to Sonoma. Got on the road about 9:45 heading south towards Fort Wayne, Indianapolis and finally Terra Haute (about 300 miles). Got very warm as we moved west and the sun came out. Listening...

Jun 7, 2018 - Horseshoe Lakes TT 6/7 thru 6/9. IN

Hi the stay here in Indiana was quiet and relaxing,pretty setting but not much to see they are known for a covered bridge festival in October, but mostly miles and miles of corn crops.we ended staying 4 nights instead of 3 because on scheduled travel day we awoke to rain and tornado warnings on our phone, good thing we stayed because a horrible storm hit that afternoon with winds exceeding 70mph,scary afternoon. We now head to Illinois for a one nighter.

THE GREAT LAKES LOOP

May 27, 2017 - Celebrating Christopher!

Christopher reached the ripe old age of 22 and graduated all in the same month! We were so fortunate to be able to celebrate both events with him. May marked the end of his time at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, rated by US News and World Report as the Best Undergraduate Engineering School in the country for over ten years running! Christopher managed to complete college in three years, graduating Summa Cum Laude in Computer Science with a minor in math. He loved Rose-Hulman and even found love in Terre Haute. He acted in various...

Apr 27, 2017 - Cool day trips from Terre Haute

Given Terre Haute's limited attractions, we've spent some time exploring the surrounding areas in Indiana. Our first outing was to Bloomington's Buddhist monastery, established by the brother of the Dali Lama! We absolutely could not believe we were driving up to such authentic Tibetan buildings, stupa, and prayer wheels right in our home state! Heading inside the temple, we heard a monk's soft, monotone chanting. What memories it brought back! He stopped his prayers to show us around the temple, including a display of a variety of...

Dec 31, 2016 - New Years in Terre Haute, Indiana!

Following the death of our beloved eggplant, we packed just about everything we owned into sister-in-law Val's Ford Escort, Sally. I don't know which impressed me more--the room we found in Sally or Fran's packing abilities! We headed out from Oregon in freezing conditions but managed to dodge major snowstorms. We made it to Indiana in three days, and just in time for New Years festivities! Now, it is no secret that we are not fans of Terre Haute. There really isn't much to do there! The big draw for us was that our son (Christopher) and...

Jan 30, 2016 - Terre Haute Indiana

Finally we got on the road for our trip to the west. After the bad weather we had in January and the illness we both had it feels good to get moving. Our trip will take us down US 24 to Ft. Wayne Indiana to I-69 south thru Indianapolis to I-70 and west. Our first stop will be in Terre Haute Indiana for the first night of our trip. Could not ask for better weather to drive in other then the wind we had to drive straight into all day. We stayed in the KOA Terra Haute for the night. KOA’s are a little pricey but there are not a lot of...

2016 Westward HO

Sep 20, 2015 - Terre Haute

Today we travelled from Grand View Bend to Terre Haute. My GPS suggested a short backtrack to the interstate and a route through Indianapolis, but these intrepid adventurers ellected for the "Road less travelled". We travelled through Lafayette In. and through "The Shades" to get here. We saw several covered bridges enroute and the Shades State Park had very narrow roads with extreme tree cover. We are spending tonight at the Terre Haute KOA. KOA's are like holiday Inns for RV's A little more pricey but you always know what you will get....

Jun 14, 2015 - Back to Indiana!

After lots of hugs and promises to keep in touch, we left Surfside RV & Resort about 8AM. We drove into a little rain but by afternoon the sun was shining. We saw loads of blooming Blue Bonnets, the Texas state flower, along with several other roadside wildflowers in coral, red, yellow, purple and white all along the road. The redbud trees were blooming and prickly pear cacti were plentiful. The further we went the redder the dirt got. The Texas Hill Country is truly beautiful! We drove longer than usual – a little over 7 hours - arriving...

Nov 10, 2014 - Finishing up in Terre Haute

We continued to “live” at the Terre Haute KOA while my 5th round of chemo was delayed for 2 weeks because of my low white blood count. Once I finally had the chemo, I got 2 out of a possible 5 daily shots to stimulate white blood cell production. During this time Brad developed a toothache which became an infection he needed 2 root canals. Before they could fill the tooth, another tooth started to hurt and he needed 3 more root canals! Trying to keep busy, we visited Candles Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Candles is an acronym for...

Nov 2, 2014 - Fall in New England and the Midwest

Sad to bid farewell to our adopted city of St. John's, we began the loooong trek to Terre Haute in order to see Christopher in his first school musical at Rose, Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. What a change a month made in Newfoundland! The hills were painted with gold and other fall colors, and the busy beavers had built winter homes everywhere! Because of earlier ferry delays and tales of bigger problems, we made sure to leave ample time to make Christopher's show. Due to our excellent planning, we had no ferry problems at all....
