Jul 17, 2016 - Niagara Falls

There are not enough adjectives to describe the views of t,e falls. Magnificent, spectacular, beautiful, awesome - all seem not to capture the true grandeur of the falls. We enjoyed exploring Niagara Falls State Park to see the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, and a panoramic view of Horseshoe Falls. But the true expanse of the falls is best viewed from the Canadian side which is also is also cleaner and more picturesque than the American side. Our obligatory ride on Maid of the Mist was fun and we did not get as wet as expected. We...

Jun 24, 2016 - Niagara Falls

We took a sightseeing trip to Niagara Falls today. We were disappointed as Niagara Falls State Park around the falls is under construction to upgrade the landscaping and walkways. Lots of chain link fence and construction equipment making it difficult to walk around. After enjoying the cool weather by Lake Ontario,the heat caught up to us as it got up into the 80's at the falls. We escaped from the heat inside the Top of the Falls Restaurant for a snack and a beer. All the seats face the falls and all of the food is from local vendors and...

May 17, 2016 - Erie Canal & Fort Niagara

The weather forecast is for better, warmer weather so we decided to stay another day and check out The Erie Canal, a short day trip from here to Lockport, NY. Very interesting and well worth taking in. Not yet Memorial Day and several of the attractions were not open, but Jean, as usual, struck up a conversation with a lady from the visitors center and got suggestions that we do the lake shore drive and Fort Niagara on way back. Most importantly she suggested we have lunch at "Toms Diner", which of course became a top priority. The diner...

May 16, 2016 - Niagara Falls, NY

Woke up Sunday morning to 31 degree temps and wind chill in the 20's, fortunately the rain and snow (yes, snow) had stopped. It was no fun crawling around on the cold wet ground getting everything hooked up. If I have to do much more of that, there may be a flat tow car in our future. As we headed into Canada, it grew even colder and about 10 a.m. caught up with the snow we slept through. Not enough to stay on the ground, but enough to blow across the road. Jean and I didn't bring our long johns, but if this weather continues we will need...

Sep 15, 2015 - Niagara Falls, Ontario and NY

We stopped near Niagara Falls at FourMile State Park (New York) where we planned to visit one of our oldest friends from Bishop - John Persich. The last time we saw John was when he came to visit us in Bakersfield when we were living in our 22 foot aljoa travel trailer while in college. Funny that we are now living in 31 feet! haha. John and his delightful wife Kathy were pleased to see us, and welcomed us into their lovely Ontario home with enthusiasm! Even their black Lab Millie was an eager participant, welcoming us and Duffy with...

Jun 25, 2015 - Niagara Falls

Jainan – I WENT IN A BARREL OVER NIAGARA FALLS!! Just kidding, I wanted to but mom wouldn’t let me. Anyway, we went to Niagara Falls. We went on the Maid of the Mist boat thingy, on the top deck. It was fun. We got big smurf (blue) ponchos. And we got WET, with a capitol smiley face. I enjoyed the ride but through the Horseshoe Falls it was so misty that I couldn’t see through my glasses. It looked like someone had put a giant white screen in front of the boat. Niagara Falls was a last-minute stop so we didn’t stay long, we went to the gift...

East Loop Trip 2015

Jun 6, 2015 - Niagara Falls

6-6-15 Niagara Falls We slept in today. Got up later than our usual, had breakfast, took showers, then moseyed over to the KOA office to inquire about Niagara Falls tours. Turned out one was leaving the KOA around 2:30PM. I signed us up for the tour. We had some time to kill, so we went looking for Julie’s special crackers that she has been looking for for the longest time. I said, “Screw it, buy a family size bag of Fritos and call it good,” but these are special healthy crackers made from the rare element “Unobtainium” and only they would...

Jun 5, 2015 - Vermont to Grand Island, NY

6-5-15 Burlington, VT to Grand Island, NY Broke camp and pulled out at 9:45AM. Weather was great, which is good as we have a long trip planned today. Today’s first snafu was losing Julie. We left camp with me driving the Winnebago and Julie following in the Toyota since we needed to gas up. This is normally a simple process. She just follows me, we fuel up, then I stop somewhere where there is room to link up a 52’ rig that can’t back up. While winding through Burlington looking for the place to link up, I was watching a black truck behind...

Oct 8, 2014 - The Falls of all Waterfalls ... Niagara

As you know, we've seen some beautiful waterfalls on this trip into western New York ... but none of them can top Niagara Falls. We visited here 20 years ago ... and were blown away by the beauty as profoundly as we were back then. Millions of gallons of water per second flow over this exposure of Niagara Escarpment. You gotta see it ... put it on your bucket list.

Oct 6, 2014 - Day 31

Hi Everyone, Well we began another full day with a short trip to Syracuse for Gaz to send some presents back home and for Smalls and myself to grab a few University of Syracuse souvenirs. Syracuse is very much an all American college town with a large student community and a fair amount of frat houses, so after completing our tasks we headed out of town towards Niagara Falls where we crossed the border into Canada. Even though we have all done a bit of travelling, there seems to be something about immigration officials that makes you feel...

Sep 16, 2014 - Niagara Falls

We finally are under way at 9:30 am following a few last minute items we needed to complete. The plan was to get to travel from Canton to Rochester,New York. That proved to be a really ambitious plan. Traffic going to Cleveland,Ohio was pretty heavy, along with the road construction. After entering New York,I could tell Rochester was a lost cause. So Sue started checking the Good Sam Trip planner we had setup prior,to our departure. In setting up the trip planner we had loaded multiple campgrounds along the way that we had prescreened. This...

Sep 16, 2014 - Where In Niagara Is Bill?

9/16/2014. Tuesday. Where In Niagara is Bill? It rained all night but this morning the sun came out and the weather warmed up nicely. The tour mini-bus picked us up at 11:15am but the driver had to pick up more peeps so we really didn't start our Niagara Falls tour until 12:30pm. We criss-crossed the Canadian border twice so we had to go through Canadian customs twice and the U.S. Customs twice during the day with passports in hand. Our first stop was the ride on the Maid of The Mist boat that took us on the Niagara River and right up to...
