Dec 6, 2016 - Cindy Gilbert Makes Cookies in Michigan

I dedicate this entry to all the newbie Betty Crocker’s out there. I hope you enjoy! Even though we had a house before, our lifestyle was much too hectic for me to stop and bake something. David got enchiladas, rice, and beans only once a year, that ought to tell you something right there. So, while in Michigan, with access to a full-sized kitchen… I took time to have a little fun with some of Miss Judy’s cooking gadgets: A mixer, cookie cutters, large mixing bowls, and an oven! David and I liked eating chocolate morsels as a cheap and...

Dec 1, 2016 - Our Two month Home Body Life in Michigan

Hi there!!! Bet you thought I’d given up on this journal writin’ thing, nope, not yet. This entry is a little different. It doesn’t have anything to do with truck camper life, but it just has to do with what I like to call “The Home Body Life”. During our two month stay in St Joseph, Michigan, we heeded Miss Judy’s instructions and made ourselves at home. We had the run of her 3-level home, complete with a fenced in backyard, beautiful views of a wooded ravine and a garage. There was also plenty of room for Breezy to lay about and view,...

Jul 29, 2015 - We Came, We Saw, We Conquered!

Well, we came (we drove over 8,000 miles), we saw (109 lights) and we conquered (the 8 pages of Excel lists of lights to see). And we had a great time doing the list! Along the way we had snow (just a little bit in Minnesota, while we were sleeping), high winds and big surf. We were invaded and swarmed by the hatching midges and lately sweltering in high humidity and heat. But we kept on the hunt for the next light. We also had a great visit with my cherished friend from elementary school and her husband, Michele and George. I also had the...

Jun 7, 2013 - Chicago and the shore of Lake Michigan

Out a bit later than usual this morning knowing we were facing more toll roads and the drive into and through Chicago. However, between having studied the maps last night and my GPS, Dad managed to handily maneuver through the city and on to the southern outskirts of Chicago by noon. Mom and Dad said the drive was similar to their last trip through here, though the roads have at least been improved since then. Another hour and a half and our last time zone change travelling this direction and we arrived at the Coloma/St Joseph KOA for...

Sep 26, 2011 - South to St. Joseph

On the spur of the moment, we headed out of the coach shortly after noon. We were going to get the long overdue Wal-Mart shopping done and behind us once and for all. Wal-Mart is the one-stop-shopping experience enjoyed by the two of us. Me for the reduced prices on groceries when not near the Commissary, and Jerry for the RV supplies he can normally find here at greatly reduced prices. However, when the sun started to come out and the sky started to turn more blue than gray, we realized we should try to at least get out and explore some...

Jun 13, 2011 - Ohio/Michigan

June 11 - 13. After leaving Gettysburg we headed across Pennsylvania towards Ohio and stayed at a highway service area for the night. We found we were near Shanksville where Flight 93 crashed on September 11 and decided to visit the memorial there. I had been here before in 2003 and found work started on a permanent monument for the people who died on this plane. Another very moving place to visit and feel the sad loss of life. Saturday saw us in Akron Ohio and an afternoon with many wonderful HAI people. Our hosts looked after us very...

Aug 11, 2007 - John & Jill's ...Thurdsday Aug 9

We promised John & Jill we would stop and visit them. They live in Stevensville, a few miles from St Joseph. We got there about 8:00. They showed us their home, which is beautiful. They did a lot of remodeling and it looks gorgeous. We sat outside under their pergola (they built) and of course; being Sue's daughter, she served us a ton of food. Since we are comfortable in the MH we opted to camp in their driveway. Love to all Chuck & Donna
