Aug 1, 2011 - August 1. 2011

August 1, 2011 This is the first time I have looked at my email since we left Baltimore. There are so many "adventures" in RVing that we are experiencing. Greg has really been a trooper and continues to be excited by each "adventure--CHALLENGE" that occurs. We have not yet gotten a tv hookup. So, here we are facing the end of the first month and "no tv"!! We have both been extremely surprised at how little we have missed it. We have obviously read a lot; listened to lots of "oldies", especially the Beatles and enjoyed establishing new...

Jun 4, 2011 - Camp Shelby & Winter Plans

Thursday, June 2, 2011-- Hattiesburg, Mississippi HOT! HOT! HOT! Today is forecast to be 100 degrees. No matter how nice a campground is, in this heat, we really cannot enjoy it. You know it is hot when our Basset, Maggie, stays indoors. She normally spends 90% of her day outside, lying in the sun. The weather has been almost “good.” We have not had any rain or strong storms and we are thankful for that. We have been checking Weather Base for average tempatures and have found that we will have to go north into the mountains of Tennessee to...

Jun 1, 2011 - Northbound

Tuesday, May 31, 2011--Hattiesburg, Mississippi Northbound at last!! We have spent the first month of our summer travels this year, moving due east along the Interstate 10 corridor. We have traveled a total of 744 miles eastbound and finally have turned north. We had a nice travel day today and only moved 106 miles. Smooth roads, very little traffic, scenic country. When we travel on the interstates, we move along at 62-65 MPH. That speed is the “sweet spot” for our diesel motor. Much faster than that and the gas mileage drops radically....

Apr 21, 2011 - In the boonies near Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Posting this a day late as we had a very weak WiFi connection!! Well we had a very nice, interesting and short trip today. I did not feel sleepy once! We also stayed off the interstates and found it a lot more interesting driving the back roads through small town America. Of course my rejoicing is going to be short lived. Tomorrow we will be driving a hundred more miles than today. But we are slowly and steadily moving towards our goal. Our biggest concern is the weather … which we are watching like hawks. Today we arrived at Okatoma Resort...

Living our RV Dream!

Mar 5, 2011 - Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Travel adventures. Today being a travel day, I woke up early – unintentionally - but since I was up, I figured I might just as well do what I need to do to get going. So after taking care of necessities, the trailer was hooked up and ready to roll by 7:30 a.m. After a stop at the dump station – for you non-trailer folks, that’s for the trailer, not for me (sorry, that might be a bit gross for some of you). Anyway, I was on the road at 7:45 a.m. After having 2 pretty good weather days on the beach, today’s report was not so hot. Possible...

May 21, 2010 - Hattiesburg, MS

Today we left Angie's much to my dismay - she might be moving back to Germany and this could be the last time I see her before she leaves. After some tears on my part, I looked to the trip ahead. This is a travel day working our way to California - we are trying not to travel over 300 miles per day so we stopped in Hattiesburg going toward I20. We stayed at the Hattiesburg Elks Club which had a camp ground for only $10.00 per night - overall our feeling was that it was not a place that we would go again as the campground was very hilly and...

May 14, 2010 - Family Visit in Hattiesburg

Dear Friends and Family, We traveled from Perry, FL, and arrived in Mississippi on Friday, May 14. Since Friday, we stayed at Paul B. Johnson State Park in Hattiesburg. Dad's sister June and brother-in-law A.C. were there in their motor home, too. Family came Saturday for supper, and everyone brought something. It was really great to see Uncle Johnny and his wife Linda. A big surprise was that Hardy and Ricky also came (our nephews -- same ages as you, Rob and Ken). We haven't seen them in sooooo long. There were about 25 of us all...

Apr 7, 2010 - Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Today we left our winter home RV park, Anchors Aweigh RV Resort in Foley, AL and started our trip north toward South Dakota. So that we could see that everything was working right we decided to make our maiden voyage with our new motor-home a short one and our first destination was Hattiesburg, Mississippi just 140 miles from Foley, AL. The campground we picked in Hattiesburg is the Shady Cove RV Park. It is conveniently located right along highway 49. The park is kind of rustic compared to Anchors Aweigh but it will serve the purpose for...

Mar 18, 2010 - Hattiesburg, MS

Time to leave the state park. I was sure the tree at the left corner of the site would cause huge problems but as usual I was wrong. Keith simply hooked up on the other side of the tree and pulled right out. Piece of cake. Ronnie Gibson agreed to let us stay at the airport for the night. We parked inside the fence, flew for about an hour and a half, then loaded the trike. We had a nice dinner at Crescent City Grill. Routing: 16 miles

Winter/Spring - 2010

Nov 26, 2009 - A Surprising Thanksgiving

Last year we had the good fortune to be in Milwaukee during Thanksgiving, spending the holiday with our family. We hadn't done that since 2005 before we went on the road. That was very nice, but pretty impractical for us now, since Milwaukee at the end of November is not someplace we look forward to being. So in our usual travel style, we looked for someplace quiet to spend this Thanksgiving. While we've become 1000% more social since we first started fulltiming, and have made lots of really great friends all over the country, we still...

May 27, 2009 - Thur a few states

Last night was a long wet night in our tent. It rained from 2 am till 8 am. Everything was soaked. We finally got everything packed and on the road by 1 pm. The first stop was in Texarkana, AR and Texarkana, TX. One on side of the street is Texas and on the other is Arkansas. This is the only town that was built on any state boarder. We drove thur Ar, TX, LA, and then MS today. We were only in Texas for 20 minutes before we drove into Louisiana, we did not stop - it was rainy. We did stop in Vicksburg, MS. This is one of the battle fields...

May 21, 2009 - Hattiesburg, Ms

We left Destin this morning and headed for Hattiesburg, Ms. We got onto I-10 and got to enjoy driving on a very straight road for a number of miles. The terrain along I-10 is very similar to North Carolina and not at all like Florida. We crossed into Alabama and got to drive through and I do mean though Mobil. Interesting port city. The battleship USS Alabama is there as well as several old southern mansions. Some very nice areas, but also a lot of poverty. It is also the home of the University of South Alabama and there were some large...
