Jan 21, 2012 - Reedy Creek Park

Today we knocked off two (well 1.5 technically) more of the 100 Classic Hikes in NC. Our first stop was in Charlotte at Reedy Creek Park & Nature Preserve, one half of hike number 29. It rained most of the way down, but was just drizzling for our hike. We parked at the Nature Center and hiked along the Umbrella Tree Trail. We missed the turn off and completed the loop back to the nature center and tried again. This time, we took the turn onto the South Fork Trail and headed a ways before crossing a bridge and turning right on the Sierra...

Jan 8, 2012 - Charlotte

Ok, things have been a little more relaxed the last couple of days. Firstly, yesterday need up being a bit of a boring day at home as Jack was quite sick and so he had to stay in bed and get some sleep. He was feeling I'll the night before and he did not look good at all in the morning. Rather than get worse and have to travel sick or even worse miss out on Disney, he opted to stay at the motel and rest. He slept for A good five hours straight! This meant wee missed the Wake Forrest game, but I was able to watch it on tv instead. Then in...

Aug 1, 2011 - Charlotte and Sandy

We headed inland on I-26 and then north on I-77 yesterday and stopped at the KOA in Fort Mill, SC, about 15 miles south of Charlotte, NC. Today, Sandy Thomas, a former coworker at Associates Commercial, drove down from her home north of Charlotte for a visit. It was fun catching up and reminiscing. Unfortunately, I am out of practice and forgot to take pictures. We head out in the morning into West Virginia.

Jul 14, 2011 - Goodbye, Tennessee, Hello North Carolina

Well, goodbye Tennessee, and hello to Charlotte, North Carolina, home of the Bobcats. Took a side trip on our way to Raleigh-Durham to Charlotte check out the Bobcats arena. Nice arena with a hotel attached to it along with a hospital next door (for all those injuries!) and the practice court open to the fans. We arrived a little too late to go to the team store but what I found amusing was that there were no Bobcats jerseys in the windows - only Michael Jordan apparel. Back to the road again.

Jul 7, 2011 - Charlotte - Day 1 1/2

Well! Phew! What a long drive that was! I'm glad it's over. Today we swim! I love it. Cindy took me out on a raft so I could stay cool, wet and safe. I don't like to swim too far. I only have little legs, you know. Cindy and Holly went with my Aunt Brenda to a great restaurant that my cousin Matt works at. It's called Bistro La Bon. Have you heard of it? Cindy said she yelped it. Is that like whelp? I know what that is, but I don't understand yelp. Anyway, they had something called gnocchi. It sounds like something was stuck in her throat...

Jun 9, 2011 - 3000 Miles West

Just a quick entry so the map gets updated. We drove to Charlotte, NC on Wednesday, May 8 and dropped Suzie off at Camp BowWow for a few days while we head west to visit Bret, Jolene, & the grandkids. She seemed happy enough although it is a much more regimented place than she is used to staying when we leave her in Florida. The next entry will be from California, so the map will certainly jump around a little; this is just FYI.

Mar 28, 2011 - Charlotte, NC

We left Brunswick, Ga on Sunday morning. It was cloudy and they were predicting rain, but Brad was very comfortable when he was outside hooking up. We were headed to Charlotte, NC, a distance of 337 miles which is more than we usually drive in a day. We stopped at a rest area in South Carolina and Brad got out of the coach and froze. What a difference in temperature. We also ran into some very heavy rain for awhile. Somewhere in South Carolina, the rain stopped and it was actually sunny when we got to Charlotte. It was still cool though. We...

Feb 23, 2011 - A day at En Gedi and Masada... Floating in the Salt Sea

Today was such an amazing day! We started out at En Gedi. It's the place where David went and tore part of Saul's cloak. It has become a nature preserve and is growing so beautifully. The Israeli people take such care to build up their land. I think if more people understood this, they would see that this land was created for this people and this people created for this land. I wasn't able to go into the actual cave because of time, but was promised that when I come back with Obed, we can do the hike. We went next to Masada. It's massive!...

Feb 21, 2011 - leaving Charlotte... the adventure begins

These posts are going to have to be in hind-sight for a bit as I get caught up with them Reader's Digest version may help, but that's just no fun....lol We made it out of Charlotte and after many hours of flying including a lay-over in Newark, touched down in Tel Aviv, Israel. I cannot express in words how that hit my heart. It was almost unreal. Customs was a breeze for all expect one of us. He was the one with the beard. Must have looked "suspicious" though how anyone could think that of our David I can't imagine. We all finally made it...

Feb 4, 2011 - Getting ready to go!

Hello all! I used this trip journal for my adventure in Denmark and thought it would be a good idea for my trip to Israel in Feb. It will be an easy way for you to keep up-to-date with those of you who have supported me financially and most of all in prayer. You can also send me notes more easily this way. I will be posting our itinerary so that you know where we are and how we are doing. Some of the pics from the adventure and most of all, what my precious Jesus is showing me along the way. Thanks so much for joining the adventure....

Jan 22, 2011 - Jet Airliner

Big ol jet airliner, don't carry me too far away-SteveMiller We had originally planned to drive to Florida today but we chickened out & bought plane tickets instead. We've done the long drive from NJ 4 or 5 times before but I guess our days of the hardcore long road trips may be over. We both agreed driving this time just didn't feel like a wise move. So last minute, we decided to fly to Florida with the kids. Hey, it beats driving, bottom line. We just landed in North Carolina for a connection flight and it's friggin cold here in Charlotte...
