Apr 15, 2014 - Columbus, Ohio

Today we moved north, but decided to stay south of Lake Erie to avoid the cold weather and snow that hit southern Ontario. We drove north on I-65 to Louisville, Kentucky, and then took I-71 to Cincinnati and then Columbus. It is about 35F here this afternoon and no snow, so life is good. Tonight we are staying at Cross Creek Camping Resort. They have nice pull-through sites, open sky for my satellite dish, and acceptable wifi for some internet surfing. I think our plan is to move over to Niagara Falls tomorrow, and then home on Thursday.

Dec 9, 2013 - to Columbus OH (flew); 21/0

131209-Mon–Today we flew home from FL. The flight was delayed about an hour, so it didn’t get in until about 4pm. The long sleeve golf shirt I wore was hot in FL, but cold in Ohio. It’s about 29 degrees, compared to about 79 in FL. This will be my last blog post until we leave for FL again about Jan. 3rd.

Florida 2014

Oct 15, 2013 - Day 5: Tuesday, October 15

Up early - run on the Hockhocking trail for me. Up to Columbus and the Columbus Zoo - awesome. Shopping at a cool store called Marc's. Chose to cancel the Hampton, not so nice, found a Country Inn - very nice! Dinner at Tumbleweeds, pretty good, but slow - neat girl training, though. Laundry at hotel. Cloudy, comfortable day.

Fall Roadtrip - 2013

Aug 16, 2013 - Columbus, Ohio

We are in Columbus, Ohio. We spent Friday night downtown. Downtown is very active with concerts, water shows, food truck competitions, restaurants, fountains and waterspouts for the kids to play in. We got there about 4:00 and watched the kids play in the fountains. We took a walk along the river while we waited for Diana's brother and wife to meet up with us for dinner. We had a very good meal right on the river watching all the activities. We left downtown late evening as it was getting dark. There were thousands of people gathered for a...

May 17, 2013 - Lexington, KY to Columbus, OH

May 15-17 Balmy, sunny morning in camp. Last night we “debugged” the rig and I finally remembered to wipe off Pepper’s nose marks from the interior windows! Did not eat until almost 8:30 because of our big lunch. Took the scenic route to Columbus, OH and not the interstate. We have had nothing but problems with our GPS in KY so I switched to Google Maps. Are taking Hwy 68 through KY to the OH border where we were to have picked up Hwy 62 which we somehow missed in a small town. Not to worry though as we will get on interstate 71 a little...

Apr 1, 2013 - Columbus, Ohio

We have stayed the last 2 nights at Deer Creek State Park in Mt. Sterling, Ohio. It is just a little south of Columbus. We wanted to stop and visit the Kubota facility there and meet the wonderful folks who helped us for years. It was great fun to see them all. We are heading to the Amish country in Ohio for a couple of days and then, back to North by NorthEast!

Jan 18, 2013 - North Fort Myers, FL

For those of you who wondered, a much larger group of our Alaska pictures remains a work in very slow progress. I have made the 1st edit and still have 7000 images to organize. I have purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 to help me with the task. I will let you know when and where you can view more pictures as soon as I can. In the meantime, Jan and I arrived at Swan Lake Village in North Fort Myers FL at the end of December and we'll be here the next 3 months. This is our second season here as snowbirds. The people could not be any...

Oct 21, 2012 - Marathon Flop

Well that was disappointing!!! We arrived at the Cardinal Center Campground in Marengo, OH on Thursday afternoon. It is an interesting place because it is home to the Ohio Trapshooting Association. It must be a wild place during events because there are hookups available for over a thousand campers. There are about fifteen campers here now! It was completely quiet for our stay as not one shot was fired this weekend. Meanwhile, we went into Columbus on Saturday to pick up my packet for the marathon. It was a nice expo with a couple of...

Oct 19, 2012 - Pennsylvania

Today: On the road at 8. Hershey's Chocolate World at 10. Lunch, then the moving Flight 93 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania (listen to the brief audio clip of the park ranger telling us about the memorial). Then long hours back to Grove City, Ohio for the night. To my mind, the most beautiful foliage of the whole journey was late this afternoon as we drove through western Pennsylvania, as the light started to fade. Dense stands of trees in brilliant yellows with some reds and oranges lined the highway for miles. Tall trees and...

Oct 12, 2012 - Ohio, then Pennsylvania

A story from our tour director Tour director Joy Rissmiller organized a sack-decorating contest to help pass the time while we traversed four states on Thursday. She had alerted travelers to bring supplies for decorating the sacks, which she said would be used throughout the trip. She said the hotel staff would judge the sacks Thursday night, but road construction delayed our arrival at the hotel. When it came time, the hotel had no one available to do the judging. Joy, as an experienced tour organizer, devised Plan B. There was almost no...

Oct 11, 2012 - Skimming through four states

We are in Indiana as I tap-tap this on my phone. We are in our third state today, heading for our fourth. "We" are 51 people, most of whom were already friends before this trip started, and most of whom are experienced travelers with this tour company. It's a congenial group, which helps keep people from getting testy when the inevitable frustrations of travel intervene. Sitting here in a big comfortable seat letting an experienced and cheerful driver handle the bad drivers and construction delays is a comfy way to travel. Fall color so...
