Feb 27, 2011 - Getting Started

Just setting up my travel journal. Checked out a million of these sites but this one seems to be the easiest and cutest so far. Tons to do before Tuesday and haven't done anything. Still haven't figured out how I'm going to pack for 3 weeks. Besides being overwhelmed with the packing thing I am SOOOOO EXCITED!!!

Dec 19, 2010 - Marburys in Baltimore

The welcome at 29 Warrenton was its usual wonderful. It was an at home evening with just the four of us. Saturday, Nan Fran and Luke's sister Ann went to the Baltimore Museum for lunch and visits to the Cone collection and the Andy Warhol exhibit. I still cannot be excited about what he gave to the art world, but it was interesting, in the boradest sense of the word, to review his last decade of art making. The men went to Luke's club. Late in the afternoon, Alik arrived by bus from NYC; Rob and Will had done a local 5K road race in...

Nov 20, 2010 - National Harbor, near Washington DC

Greetings All – we are still here in Camp Meade RV Park, Ft George G Meade, Maryland and fortunately have been experiencing far better weather than we anticipated for November in the Northeast. We are getting close to our departure on Sunday after Thanksgiving and have been spending a lot of time with Judy and hopefully getting her to a better position to do things around her RV as well as maneuver her way around driving it. In fact, as I am here typing this, Jerry is out giving her a driving lesson to help her get ready to roll. This post...

Oct 30, 2010 - Arrived in Baltimore

Greetings - arrived at Ft George G Meade this afternoon at 1530 and 520 miles later. We were up at 0500 and out of the Welcome Center by 0530. First stop was to get diesel and to get some fuel (for us in the form of coffee, haha) and proceeded our trek. Knowing we didn't have any time zones to cross made such a difference and at least made us feel like we were making progress today! We got all checked in and unfortunately, they weren't able to put us next to Judy, but it's a nice walk to her coach and have already visited with her. Her...

Oct 4, 2010 - Baltimore, Maryland

We left Vermont and headed south through New York and Pennsylvania. Many of you have emailed us or called to see if were safe from all the rain the east coast was getting hammered with. Thank you for the concern, it is always nice to know people care. Thursday evening we camped in the Elks Lodge parking lot in Cobleskill, NY. We monitored our weather warning radio and were told there would be stream and river flooding in our area sometime within the next 12 hours. We kept our trailer hooked up to the truck in case we got a warning on the...

Sep 14, 2010 - Baltimore, Maryland

Sunday September 12th, Mary and I drove into Baltimore to see Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine. It was a dreary day with a constant light mist but we were fortunate to see the once a year reenactment of the defense of Fort McHenry when it came under British attack September 13th 1814. The actors were all in period military and civilian dress complete with a dress parade, flag raising and lowering, cannon, and musket firing and a fife and drum concert. This once a year event is called Defenders’ Day and has been a Maryland...

Aug 29, 2010 - Back to Baltimore Freightliner

After church we went back to Baltimore Freightliner because they are replacing the turbo first thing Monday morning. New guard, who didn't remember us, but we had a pass. We packed our bags so we can vacate the coach for the required two days of repair. You don't have suitcases when you travel by motor coach, but we improvised by using plastic boxes. In fact this is really the only way to pack. Very convenient.

NORTHEAST TRIP 2010

Aug 23, 2010 - Baltimore Freightliner

The first real hick-up of this trip. We arrived Monday afternoon for our Tuesday AM appointment at Baltimore Freightliner. The person that made our appointment had gone home sick and had failed to enter our appointment in the "book". So I ran head-on into Patrick Thomas. He tried to tell me it would be four days until he could look at the coach. The noise had increased to the point that we felt lucky to have made it to Baltimore and we weren't going another inch until it was fixed. Four days for a diagnosis was not acceptable. A mechanic...

NORTHEAST TRIP 2010

Aug 21, 2010 - Back in Baltimore

Em, Al, and I are spending the night at Theresa and Larry's in Baltimore so that we can get up early to attend Sunday service at St.John's Church tomorrow (Maria and Danny's parish). It will be the first time I will witness my niece and nephew performing Sunday service since they were ordained three years ago. It was such a comfort having them conduct Tom's Memorial Service in Detroit last January . I am sure tomorrow will be an emotional but joyous morning. Just recently I had read on the computer that a hamburger chain called Five Guys...

Aug 17, 2010 - Valley Forge N.P.

We all know the story of Valley Forge so no reason to write a history lesson. I will, however, write about the park itself . l) wear good walking shoes - I have never walked so many "ups and downs" 2) it's a long walk from the parking lot to Washington's Headquarters only half of which is easily handicap accessible ( half concrete path, half grass) 3) bring bug spray! The park offers ranger tours on a trolley for $12, CD tour for your car for $15, a free movie ( not terribly good), and a pamphlet that you can read at the stops on a driving...

Jul 2, 2010 - Goodbye Europe...

Well we are winding down and the vacation is over. All that is left is the wonderful travel day ahead crossing over the Atlantic, flying into Atlanta and then to Gainesville for our final leg. We have had an incredible time; so many memories, so much laughter--like moments when our stomachs and face muscles hurt because we were laughing so hard. This experience was terrific for the kids--an experience of a lifetime for them. They learned so much and tried so much and discovered so much---we all did. It was wonderful being together and the...

Jun 30, 2010 - Paris Day 2!

We had another great day in Paris. We went to the Louvre, rode the famous ferris wheel, walked through the large intercity park, explored the Arc de Triomphe and had crepes on the Champs de Elysee at 10:30 at night while the street and shops were packed with people. Sam is doing awesome with these night hours too! Got to see another great sunset as well; this time on top of the Arc. Tomorrow will be the Christian tour and we'll do Notre Dame and the Soucre Cour. Lots of small, day to day stories to tell when we come back!
