Sep 9, 2013 - Blanchester, OH

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...

It is a day to relax and visit. We know a place in town that we like for breakfast. John fishes and catches fish. Alice and I talk. We go out for lunch. In the afternoon, I get the laundry done. We watch some TV. We have dinner in Wilmington with Alice’s mom. The food is wonderful as always. Alice has the baseball game on in the evening. This year her team is doing well and my team is not. We both enjoy baseball. It is a great way to spend the day. Our batteries are recharging. Tomorrow, we continue our trek home.

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...

John and Tom start their day fishing at Alice’s pond. They are catching many fish! We have breakfast in town. We have a favorite restaurant we discovered the last time we visited Ohio. The rest of the day, we go exploring. Lunch is at the Clifton Mill. Alice tells us it is beautiful at Christmas. It is beautiful now. We head to the Clifton Gorge. I find a trail that leads down to the river. It is a great hike. We then head to Yellow Springs. We have visited Yellow Springs before. We think Tom and Anna will enjoy it. Tomorrow we move...

Happy Mother’s Day We are up early. Peggy’s John fixes us a great breakfast! Peggy tells us that the Mare we saw yesterday had her foal during the night. Cool. We spend time outside with the animals. It is a much nicer day than yesterday although still a little cool. To Linda: “Come Visit Us!” - Peggy/John We are off again. As we drive down the road, I yell to John. “Look, there’s Milton Burro watching for us!” We head south to Blanchester, OH. We are on the interstate again but it is a much easier ride. As we near Alice's, there is one...
