Aug 17, 2017 - New York Prepare to Repair Aug. 4-5

On the way to Batavia, NY we took an exit to use the restroom and get fuel. It required crossing the highway by way of a covered bridge and entering an area with the westbound people. The place was packed with tourists going to Niagria falls, McDonalds, pizza, a souvenir shop, carnival machines, and a pretzel booth. Fuel was on the east bound side not available to those on the west bound side. It was odd and it made me think about who drew the plans to build it that way. The next day we headed for Albany, NY. It was time for an oil change...

We slept sooo good last night!! Mom was right! The rice made us sleep better! Our tummies were so ful l when we went to bed at 7am we slept until 430am woke up and ate a few ounces and went right back to sleep until 7am! We got up and ready to meet Amelia at 9.

Mom stayed with us to show her while dad went to do a few errands before work. We really took to Amelia right away. She was so...

Happy Sunday! Today we get to hang out with mom and dad before they head back to work tomorrow. We went on our morning walk downtown again, saw some new stores that we didn't see before and then came back to get the car to go get dads hair cut.

Aug 12, 2017 - Hanging out in Troy

Well we did some bumming around Troy today and also found some pretty cool little cities around us. We went for a walk downtown to the farmers market they have here every Saturday from 9-2! We bought some fresh veggies, fruit, pesto, bread and stopped at a few shops that were open and came back home. Dad did laundry while mom hung out with us, we didn't do much today since we have been so busy every other day since we left home. We are getting excited to see our Nana on Friday even though we know we will have to wait until Saturday to see...

Aug 11, 2017 - Carriage House

Good morning! We slept pretty good last night for our first night in the carriage house! It is really nice out so mom and dad decided to take us on a nice walk after we ate! We loaded up in the double stroller and took a walk into town to see all the shops! Downtown is pretty cute but small. We hope this is a good sale for mom and dad. After walking around we went to Target to get a few things and mom was in heaven. She said she wished it was closer lol After Target we came back and unloaded our things and walked back downtown to have a...

Aug 10, 2017 - Finally in Troy

We slept really good last night! Dad got us a late check out so we got to sleep in and take our time this morning! We went down to the lobby and had a really good breakfast, stared at a lot of people, and watched dad pack up the rest of our stuff. We drove the 1/2 mile to the carriage house and met the owner Mary there. She was really nice. We walked in and mom and dad were a little disappointed...it was much older and a bit dirtier than photos and not worth the amount they paid but after cleaning up a bit, it will be fine for 8 weeks. Mom...

Aug 9, 2017 - Last stop, Troy, New York

Well we got a good night sleep in Syracuse now onto our final destination Troy! We are excited to almost be there! We got to town in a couple of hours and mom was a little disappointed...dad reassured her that it would be a good sale. Let's hope he is right! We checked into the Best Western in town ( the only hotel but really nice) and walked across the street for some Dinosaur BBQ. It's not really Dino that's just the name of the restaurant ;) After lunch, we walked around town a bit to see where mom and dad would be working, mom took us...

Jun 1, 2017 - Starting Out

Hit the road on May 1st, right on time! We've been looking forward to this trip for more than a year now. The first week we traveled across I-90, a highway we know well having lived in Ohio and traveled back and forth to visit family. while traveling we identified a few things that needed repair on our 5th wheel so we made an appointment to take it to a repair shop in Shipshewana, Indiana, near the Cedar Creek manufacturer. Shipshewana is a community with a large Amish population. We spent three days at the Shipshewana RV Park and enjoyed...

Alaska Or Bust 2017

Feb 14, 2017 - On our way

We had a long, but not particularly eventful, travel day. (Clinton - Albany-Ft. Lauderdale-Quito) We got to our hotel about 12:30 am. It is an old Italianate mansion converted into a “boutique” hotel. Our room is high-ceilinged, in cream and gold. The bath is modern, but as in most developing countries, there is a bin by the toilet for paper. One does not flush paper no matter Its condition. The bed is quite comfortable, with a crowning headboard.

Leaving Niagara Falls at 10 am Wednesday morning and shooting for Albany New York. We have developed a leak in our fresh supply filter, so our plans now include a stop at the Camping World Store in Rochester New York. It seems the O=ring disappeared some where during the preparation for this trip. ( Go Figure )A Few hours later and some additional money in Tolls and we have a new water filter and our leak is solved. Did I mention that I 90 is a Toll road from Ohio through New York. Boy do they clip you with this setup. All though we have...

Taken by Storm

Jun 23, 2014 - Amsterdam to Albany

June 23 Amsterdam to Albany Day eight of our ride.  Packed up the bikes with all our gear one last time and hit the trails. Quite a hot one today and the trees sheltering the trail gave welcome shade.  Early this morning while biking down a country road with Peter in front, I was startled to hear another biker pull up beside me. We quickly exchanged pleasantries and each of our destinations. This was a group of three young guys, early 20's, very fit, bicycling from Seattle to Boston!!!!!! They said they had a RV following them and providing...

Oct 1, 2013 - Day Twenty Two

If there were anything I would change about this trip, it would be the long days...but of course, that would mean more days and more money.... Another 6:30 wake up, bags out the door by 7:00 and on the coach by 8:00. Had another fabulous breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, muffin and coffee and juice (buffet style) included. Waking up to the red, yellow, orange and green colours were spectacular even though there was a bit of fog in the distance. Called Mom to wish her a Happy Birthday before boarding the coach. First stop was at...
