2015 Family Cruise

Sep 10, 2015 - Thursday, Temperance MI

This will be a short journey but a very important trip for us to celebrate the Bud Waitas Memorial Pig Roast in Lawton. This was something that Bud wanted to do this year so Joan decided that she was going to have it to remember the life of Bud. She is having the local pig roast expert provide everything so she has to do little. We will have it at the local park here in Lawton so she don’t have all the people here at the house. We left home around 9:30 am so we could stop at Bontrager’s in White Pigeon Michigan. Bontrager’s is a RV salvage...

Another great day on the road. We did leave home around 9:30 am for the start of our next journey. We will travel to my sister’s, Jo, in Lawton Michigan to load and prepare for our trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a couple of weeks with a stop at Darcy and Mark’s for a few days. Lucky for us Mark will be getting home on Sunday from the oil fields for his 10 days off. We will make some stops along the way at Mackinaw Island, Tahquamenon Falls, Picture Rocks, and the Glass Bottom boats. There will be other stops but we will need to...

Last night as we were approaching Wytheville the motorhome started acting up again so we pulled over so Katie, Candy and the kids could take the truck onto the hotel. Chip and I took the motorhome on to the hotel and it ran fine. It was decided that I wanted to try and get home so someone that has worked on the motorhome could look at it instead of having a place along the road look at it. Chip, Katie and the kids took the truck to drive home so in case we did have another issue they would not be waiting with us. They left and so did we,...

Jul 24, 2015 - Michigan, How Depressing

Back to our Roots The Ohio Nightmare: the roads around Columbus were designed by psychotic dyslexic backward Ohio STate engineers, no doubt. I am sure that there were people on the road that had been trying to get home for weeks but just couldn't find the right road. Findlay was a parking lot and both together turned the short drive into a exhausting marathon. We stayed at a Good Sam 10/10/10 campground. Very nice place but we were on top of each other. Also they had Christmas in July which was a bit weird for me. The neighbors turned out...

Travels with Teddy

Jul 23, 2015 - Thursday Temperance Michigan

As we awake to another new day and our next adventure. The sun is shining with the birds singing to welcome the new day. We are preparing for our next journey which will take us to Massillon and onto Myrtle Beach South Carolina with the Chip Belanga family. It is always a special day for us when we are on the road again, but this is also a special day for Chip and Katie. Today is their 10th wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since that day when down in history. We got on the turnpike and headed east to our next...

Interesting situation today, we could not get out of the motorhome. The door latch broke and there is not emergency way to get it to work. We ended up Bud passing tools inside so I could drill out the mechanism to get the thing open. Finally got it open after an hour working on it. Called Gulfstream to get a new door mechanism but they didn’t have any, would have to order it at a cost of $160.00. Checked on Amazon and they had them for $69.00 plus shipping but it would be tomorrow before we could get it. I know there are some RV surplus...

2015 Westward Ho

Jan 10, 2015 - Clarksville Indiana

This trip started out at 11:00 am with snow on the ground and the temperature at 0. Thank you to Roger for all the help loading the motorhome for this trip. If not for him we would have had to leave later. I decided to keep the motorhome winterized until we reached Memphis because of the cold temperatures on the way down, we would stop at a hotel on Saturday night. Our route was taking US 24 to Fort Wayne IN to south on Interstate 69 to Indianapolis Indiana. The wind was brutal driving on US 24 because it was hitting me straight on in the...

Jun 26, 2014 - Thursday, June 26, 2014

We got our start around 3 PM today because as an older person we need to get our doctor appointments taken care of. Thanks to Roger for helping me get the motorhome ready again for another trip, he is so much help for us it is difficult to explain. After getting everything loaded and the truck hooked up, away we go. Today’s drive will be to somewhere in Kentucky before we stop for the night. I forgot there was a NASCAR race this weekend at Kentucky Speedway, which is next to I-71 between Cincinnati and Louisville. As we approached the...
