Jan 30, 2011 - Florida and the Gulf States

We flew home to Washington State for Thanksgiving and Christmas to see friends and family. Our whirlwind five-week stay included first of all, helping two of Kathi's brothers sort, clear and clean up the apartment of Kathi's Mother who very sadly passed on in early November. We made two trips to Everett for routine doctor and dentist appointments and seeing friends, then back to the Tri-Cities where we spent most of our time visiting with friends and family. Stephen and Sara hosted a very artful brunch of turkey and gravy over homemade...

Oct 1, 2010 - We made it! God called us to the Panhandle of Florida, we're here!

After a few trips from Oklahoma City to Montana via United Airlines for a visit to my family. Then from Oklahoma City to Livingston TX to Waco TX back through Steve's ole stomping grounds and a visit with friends to ...Milton FL. So, we made it! We arrived last Friday afternoon through some torrential rains, couldn't see through the window type rain! Slowed down to about 25 mph and still it was bad! We could see it from a distance but wasn't sure where we would roll into it at! But sure enough, within 2 miles of our destination it was upon...

Sep 24, 2010 - It's been 14 days since I last wrote, who's reading this anyway?

Good Morning from Baton Rouge LA! Signs read as you enter the city via bridges! Boudin and Cracklins! Cajun foods here! Yummy! NOT! I like Boudin, if I don't know what's in it! It's a wonderful sausage sometimes with rice but it also has brains, guts, major yucks in it. The spices are flavorful and delicious in it but the thought of putting that in my gut, UGH! What a whirlwind of activity and traveling. We spent 5 days in Great Falls MT, my home town! It was nice to see family. The plane ride wasn't bad either. Denver Airport is nuts! Not...

Apr 3, 2010 - Baton Rouge, La

We got out of Baytown this morning in the FOG.... arrived in Baton Rouge @ about 3PM.. It is warm here, was about 85 when we got set up... the storage drawer under the couch fell apart when Sandi got into it, so we had to make a Home Depot run to buy some corner brackets and Gorilla Glue to put it back together.... Another one of the joys when traveling in a RV... Tomorrow, we will probably go to a Outlet mall, Cabela's and a Bass ProShop to do some looking... Our friends Jerry and Cathy are in Iowa City attending a function for their...

Mar 27, 2010 - Day 5: To Houston

Little did we know when we parked at Wal-Mart in Baton Rogue that the IHOP near us was a local hangout after the bars closed! Needless to say, there was a lot of traffic during the early hours of the morning. But being the intrepid sleepers that we are, we managed. After breakfast we hit the road to Houston##photo=State #4## The welcome station had a neat nature walk. We found another Wal-Mart. This one was great! Next to a high wall there was a grassy area where we could put chairs out! So we set up the grill and Ralph cooked hamburgers...

Jan 13, 2010 - Hammond to Baton Rouge to Vicksburg

We had our RV repairs and some shopping done by Noon, and headed north towards Baton Rouge. There we went first to another plantation, with a similarly-designed house. This was also a sugar plantation, and was originally built by an Irish immigrant, then sold to a French Creole family. We had our own private tour here (they were NOT busy), then walked the outbuildings ourselves. Then we drove into the centre of the city, right on the Mississippi banks. The state capital building (1936) was a huge stone art deco high-rise on the outside, but...

Jan 2, 2010 - California Day 20

California Trip -- Day 20 We are nearing the end of our trip and wanted to take some time to see several sights in Houston that we didn't get to see on the way out. Our first stop in the morning was to the National Museum of Funeral History. Yes...you read that correctly... This place was the coolest place I think I have ever been. It was a museum totally devoted to the art of the funeral. It contained hearses, unique coffins, and other things that are related to the funeral. There was a traveling exhibit about the death of Pope John Paul...

Nov 30, 2009 - Day One

I hate driving in the rain. And I really hate driving through construction in the rain. At least it was only about 50 miles worth. We left the house at about 8:15am and drove until I got tired which was about 6 hours later. We stopped outside of Baton Rouge in a place called Cajun Country RV Park which by the way is a Good Sam park. I really don't think I would ever stop here again. You didn't do good Sam. At least it was not bad price-wise only about $28 a night but the mud is pretty deep and the Johns are few and far between. Two showers...
