Aug 27, 2010 - Dayton, Ohio

Yesterday we arrived at our campground Tomorrow’s Stars in South Charleston on the outskirts of Dayton. Today we spent the day at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton. This world class facility is comprised of 400+ planes and missiles housed in three gigantic hangers that total 17 acres. We spent 7 ½ hours viewing only part of what they had on display. We had to leave as they close their doors at 5 PM. We also visited an 84 acre pasture known as Huffman Prairie Flying Field. This is a National Monument at the site of where...

Aug 25, 2010 - Air Force Museum, Dayton, OH

Our next stop was the FamCamp at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. Our purpose for this stop is to see how much the Air Force Museum has changed since I last visited in 1967. Yeah, at that time the entire history of the Air Force was in one small hangar with some planes and a separate building for other “knick knacks” and, believe it or not, it has really grown since 1967. I guess every plane (or a copy of one) the United States has ever had anything to do with was on display in one of the three, huge hangars or right...

Aug 1, 2010 - Final Days in Farmland

After the hectic weekend, we were ready for some down time, but that wasn’t going to happen yet. On Monday we were finally able to ride the motorcycles for the first time. We were meeting my Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Bill for lunch in Troy, and since it was a gorgeous day we decided to ride. We took all back roads, and it was so peaceful riding through the farmlands of Ohio…I had missed this. Growing up we had lived in the city, but my relatives lived in the country, and seeing all the beautiful farms, growing crops, and small rural towns...

Jun 30, 2010 - Glasses emergency

Oh well, Ryan's nose piece on his glasses broke off today. We need to hunt for a place to repair them. Unfortunately, it's not the screw or pad that came off, it's the soldering on the metal that gave way. Bummer. Maybe we'll throw some duct tape on it and call it a day. ;-) Bobby

Jun 30, 2010 - Stop over before St. Louis, MO

We had a good drive today and stopped at The Dayton Tall Timbers Resort ( Ohio http://www.daytonkoa.com/index.html ), in/near Dayton Ohio. The KOA is lovely. Ariane and Ryan went for jog and we all went to the pool and took a swim. Pool was heated... sort of. But it felt good. We had a camp fire tonight, and the kids played a new card game called "Fluxx". Ryan learned about this game during one of his Scout Camping trips. Next stop St. Louis, MO. Bobby

Apr 30, 2010 - Air Force Museum

On the 30th, we drove to Dayton (about 30 miles north of Wilmington, where we had the motor home parked) to go to the U.S. Air Force Museum. The IMAX show was on the Hubble Telescope, which was a treat to watch, especially the close-up pictures of the shuttle launches and pictures of the shuttle crews as they did repairs in space. The museum is a wonder to behold. It consists of three huge – really huge – buildings. The exhibits are organized into six areas – The Early Years, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Cold War. In the hallways...

Apr 20, 2010 - US Air Force Museum

Woke up today to our second "problem" of this trip - the electric lift gears on one of the RV legs stopped functioning. Can't move the RV unless the leg can lift up. So Mr. Fix-It Bob was challenged once again to temporarily "fix it" so we could get on down the road. Decided to visit the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH on the way to a fix it place in Richmond, IN. What a great collection and display of aviation - beginning with a 1909 bi-plane to present day missles and other experimental stuff. Do you know why pilots and Snoopy wore a...

Westward Ho - Again

Mar 26, 2010 - Preparation

We have been preparing for our trip for quite some time. Since this is our first real trip we aren't really sure what we need and once we get started we will be on the road to Albuquerque. So in preparation I have taken the following steps: 1 - Installed sensors on truck to ensure safe towing. 2 - Packed up what we thought we needed for us, Nataleigh and the dogs. 3 - Obtained CGVW at 13,443 lbs. We are heavy!

Jan 23, 2010 - Arriving Home

Woke up early this morning cold. The heat strips work, but can't keep up with the 40 degree temps outside. Turned on the furnace and within a few minutes I was toasty warm. At this point I couldn't go back to sleep so I packed up and got on the road. Arrived back home about 3 in the afternoon.

Oct 31, 2009 - Welcome

Well, we have been more than a little remiss, no entries in more than 12 months. We will try to get you up to date. We took two trips to the Smokies in the fall of 2009. The second trip was part of moving the coach to Florida for the winter. Good excuse to avoid winterizing. We did leave for the winter on Dec. 28th; the car was full.

Sep 26, 2009 - One step closer

An offer was made and accepted on the house in Mayfield Hts! That puts us in a very happy and exciting situation. The house in Florida (Dad Morris') will close on Weds, Sep 30th, and our buyer for the Mayfield house wants to close the deal by the end of Oct. Our Realtor says it may get pushed a week or so, but providing everything goes well, we will sign it over to the new owner, just after we "hit the road" (isn't faxing and e-mailing great! we won't have to be here!). We are currently, today, in Dayton, OH for Ohio Eastern Star's Grand...
