Today, we have a scenic two and a half hour ride to Blanchester, OH. We arrive at two thirty in the afternoon. We take our time getting ready. We have breakfast in Georgetown. We pass over the interstate and head east to Paris, KY. From Paris we head north toward Maysville on the Ohio River. Twenty miles south of Maysville, John slows the RV. “There is something wrong. We may have a flat tire.” Safely off to the side of the road, we both get out. The passenger side tire on our trailer is flat. We have the tools and ability to change it but...

It is another relaxing day. John heads to the pond early to fish. I make my coffee and join him. It is a beautiful morning. This is what we have been waiting for. Alice fixes lunch. She handles making a casserole on her own better than making margaritas with my help! We are well fed! Alice and I spend the afternoon visiting. I even get some laundry done. We travel to Wilmington for dinner with Geneva. We have time to visit before heading to the dining hall. We are really well fed! We are well relaxed but tomorrow we need to continue west.

We have breakfast in Galena with Peggy and John. It is again wonderful. After breakfast, I prepare the RV for our departure. It is time to move on. We take the scenic route around Columbus. We stop at a Wal-Mart for supplies and a picnic lunch. We continue on to Blanchester. We are greeted by my friend, Alice, who is determined to celebrate Cinco de Seis. She has directions for mango margaritas. After much laughter, we realize that neither one of us can follow a recipe. Alice, Pat, John and I head to town for dinner. We are really getting...

John is awake early and heads to the pond to fish. I sleep in. I am up in time to travel with Alice for the day. Alice is taking her mom, Geneva, to a doctor’s appointment outside of Cincinnati. It is a scenic ride. At the doctor’s office, I read about a deactivated missile site near Alice that is for sale. She does not seem interested in buying it. On the way home, we turn onto Old 3C highway. Alice explains that it runs between Cincinnati, Columbus and Chillicothe. That makes sense. We use Old 3C when visiting Peggy and John. While we are...

For breakfast, Peggy’s John fixes us a wonderful veggie omelet. Peggy is already out working. My John has promised Peggy a ride on his motorcycle. When she finishes her barn work, Peggy is ready to go! Her dog Jack watches and waits impatiently for her to return. When John and Peggy pull back into the drive, she has a huge grin on her face. Jack is relieved. Our grandmother would have told Peggy that she had “slipped a cog.” Before noon, we have said our goodbyes and are on our way to Blanchester. My friend, Alice has a light lunch ready...

We travel south today. The GPS points us to the Interstate. We get out our maps. Route 68 will take us where we want to go. We have traveled this route before. We go through towns we have visited. By noon, we are at my friend Alice’s home. She has lunch ready. What perfect timing. It is time to relax. We have been driving for six days without stopping. We need a rest.

Today is again a day for visiting and resting. John is awake early and heads to the pond to fish. At 10:00, he heads back to the RV. The fishing has been good. John fixes stir-fry for lunch. The afternoon is spent cooking, doing the laundry and watching baseball. It is cold in Chicago. I hope that weather does not head our way. We have a dinner engagement with Alice’s mom, Geneva. Dinner is wonderful. Everyone enjoys looking at John’s carvings. Back at Alice’s, there is one more trip to the pond. Thank-you Alice and Pat. Our batteries are...

Today is a day for visiting. John H. fixes us breakfast. We sit around talking. I take pictures John gets John H. set up on Facebook. It is a great visit. We head south to Blanchester, Ohio. My friend, Alice, lives here. This is another “regular” stop. Along the way, we see one of the Ohio Barns. Alice takes us out to lunch. I rest a little while John and Pat head to the pond to fish. They both catch fish but Pat once again catches the largest! Alice’s mom joins us for dinner. There is a lot to talk about. Before we turn in, John and Pat...

We start our morning trying to turn our RV and trailer around. We do not dare leave the blacktop. Alice has had a lot of rain in April. The back field is very muddy! We finally disconnect. We add a front wheel to the trailer and turn it around by hand. There is no problem. Alice and I join her mom for a pre-Mother's Day brunch. The food is again great. There is entertainment and we again have time to visit. It is a good morning. The brunch is Mother-Daughter so John stays at the house. Tomorrow we start our final trek toward home. He needs...

We wave goodbye to our campground hosts. We take the wide road out of the campground. We have breakfast and a Wal-Mart stop. We are now ready to move. We take the interstate toward Lexington. As we get off the interstate, there is an accident up ahead. We sit and wait. Finally, cars begin to turn. I push the detour button on our new GPS. We wind our way through a neighbor and find ourselves on a road through horse country. This is the high-end neighborhood! Every estate is huge with iron gates. It properties are beautiful! I may start...
