Oct 26, 2008 - Winston- Salem, North Carolina

We spent Halloween in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. That's near the southwestern entrance of Smokey Mountain National Park. We drove through that part of the park from the Cataloochie Valley entrance and enjoyed the autumn leaves in all their glory. One of the highlights of our visit was trick or treating on Halloween. Not only did the RV Park have the usual costume contest and trick or treating for kids, but they also did the same for pets. Even some cats allowed themselves to get decked out. We all sat out in front of our RV's handing...

Sep 11, 2008 - TO WINSTON-SALEM

September 11, 2008 – Thursday: This was a sober kind of morning, remembering September 11, 2001. What innocents we were – and maybe still are. We left Tennessee under an overcast sky and headed across the Smokies on I-40. As luck would have it, we found ourselves close to Maggie Valley, NC and another car/motorcycle museum. Wheels Through Time claimed to have the largest collection of antique motorcycles (mostly Harleys, but some early Indians) in the US and surely they did. There were models from 1903 through the mid 1980’s, and a lot of...

Jul 25, 2008 - Something out of a horror movie

June 25 We got up early, but after showers and breakfast we still did not leave the site until 9:00. AJ and Grampa went for a walk. The other campers were walking their dogs, but AJ was walking his Grampa. AJ travelled very well. He sat in his seat and then we let him move around. It is hard for him to understand that he cannot play with the switches while Grampa is driving. Sara’s Aunt and Uncle live in Charlotte, NC. We were making good time and were ahead of schedule, so we called them. They were happy we were going to stop and visit....

Nov 15, 2007 - Galax, VA / Mt. Airy, NC / Winston-Salem, NC

We awoke to a dreary day and cold rain. Not eager to start on our way, we decided to get caught up on laundry and emails. Finally the sun broke through and we were ready to go. We were on our way to Mt Airy, NC otherwise known in TV land as 'Mayberry". Andy and Opie were everywhere to greet us and we really got the feeling of the small town atmosphere that the 1960's TV show emulated. Our guidebook suggested we could not leave town without sampling the world famous "pork chop sandwich" served only at the Snappy Lunch Restaurant on Main St....

Oct 24, 2006 - Stoped over in VA

We left Lake George and the kids, and headed south. We needed to make a clean break, or we were afraid we'd be so used to being with the girls everyday that we'd never be able to leave. And, we just couldn't take the cold another day. We drove to Charlottesville, VA and was able to have dinner with Rhea and Bill. We left early the next morning so we could meet up with Ted and Lin Miller in Woodstock for coffee and some catching up. The next day we were on our way to Salisbury, NC to stay with Bob and Sue Lewis for a while. The weather here...

May 15, 2006 - Winston-Salem, NC -- WITH PHOTOS

Monday, May 15, 2006 -- For phots of the gardens, see the "Botanicals" entry above. Before heading off to Clemmons, NC (a 'burb of Winston-Salem) Saturday afternoon, we made a stop at the MAST store in Asheville where we remembered to by the chocolate (and many other things!). We arrived in Clemmons in the late afternoon. Don and Sandy got there just before us. Their daughter, Della, lives there with her family. Della and her brother, Eric, grew up with our children when they all lived in Cleveland. Della and Chris were extremely gracious...

Aug 8, 2005 - Third Time the Charm?

Well, I have decided to give South America another try and have booked a flight to Buenos Aires for Monday, August 22nd. I have a return flight booked for December 16th. In my previous entries, I have gone into some depth about my plans and schedule. This time, however, I am not going to make such plans. I'm going to take it little by little and see how it goes. I might be back in a week.... I might be back sometime next year. Until August 22nd, I am going to hang out in Winston-Salem for a few days and then spend a week or so at my...

Apr 29, 2005 - TTN - Forest Lake

Thousand Trails Forest Lake Preserve is our TTN home preserve. We joined this preserve originally in 1986 while we lived in Lillington, NC as a weekend and holiday getaway campground. Thousand Trails is more than just camping. Each preserve offers recreation, that includes horseback riding, shuffleboard, horseshoes, tennis, golfing, arts and crafts just to name a few. We believe that Forest Lake is one of the best of the preserves. We have been to several others, but plan on visiting more in the coming months. If anyone would like...

Jan 14, 2001 - 1989 June 17 - Old Salem

Today I visited Old Salem. It is a very pretty village with employees dressed in period costumes and performing tasks as they were done in the mid-1700s. Salem was founded in 1766 by members of the Moravian Church, an early Protestant group which traces its beginnings to the fifteenth-century martyr, John Hus. In the early 1700s many of them emigrated to Germany to escape persecution and founded the town Herrnhut. In 1753 a tract of land was bought in North Carolina for the purpose of establishing a community, which was named Bathabara. In...
