Oct 9, 2013 - Wednesday, October 9 2013

We turned on the television this morning to check the weather in the Kitty Hawk area on the outer banks of North Carolina. That was going to be our next stop, along with Creswell North Carolina where my father’s family is from. The weather did not look very good because the storm from the Gulf was moving up the east coast so we would have enjoyed more rain and very chilly temperatures at Kitty Hawk. We had a discussion if we should go to Kitty Hawk, or look for somewhere with better weather. It was decided that we needed the better weather,...

2013 North Carolina

Oct 3, 2013 - Virginia Beach,VA to Charlotte, NC

(Sandi writing) We left Virginia Beach, VA and have stopped for the night here in Charlotte, NC. We plan to head to Altanta, GA tomorrow, skipping the Smoky Mountains, another national park which is closed. Also, we are too early for the Fall colors, so another reason not to go that direction. After Atlanta, we'll just work our way home, hoping to avoid the tropical storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico.

A lot wiser and in need of good sleep but all in all we are no worse for the travel. Not in Baton Rouge yet but a few hours away. It's sooooo good to be in America!!!! I hope you enjoyed it.

Our trip started off slow, but now we are up and at 'er...not. We are taking it easy this morning, before touring the NASCAR Hall of Fame. It opens at 10, so we we're able to rest a bit after our long travel day yesterday. We toured the HOF 2 years ago, and we are looking forward to seeing all the additions and checking out all the interactive things they have to do. This evening we travel and stay over in the Richmond VA area (a couple hrs drive), on our way to Washington DC.

Met all of neighbors and enjoyed the...

Dec 5, 2012 - In the Belly of the Beast!

Wow! I haven't posted since September! How sad is that. Driving my life away for sure. Let's see.....the name of this post was regarding........oh yes! Los Angeles! I don't know if its because the map of the area reminds me of a stomach, or that, as your entering the surrounds of the city, you descend from the mountains like you're sliding down a throat into its dire depths. Either way it's a nauseating feeling that lingers until you are safely back in Arizona. The fact I know the multiple highways of this area better than my own state of...
