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

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

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...

Sep 16, 2009 - Outing to Ohio

Before I start, let me explain why there are no pictures. Some of you on FaceBook already know this, but for the others, my computer crashed! Kaploot! I lost all our pictures, videos, and Word and Excel documents since the first of the year. You see, I saved everything on disks at the end of the year which I now know is not at all a wise thing to do… I need to do it more often. The good news is the hard drive was still under warranty, so Dell replaced it at no charge and they got it to me the next day. Yea, Dell! Tim and Justin at Radio...

Jul 11, 2009 - We had no idea..

I have loved history since I was a young girl. In fact, I can clearly remember being taught about the Wright Brothers and the events that occured in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Mans first flight left quite an impression on me. With the naivete of youth I just 'assumed' that they made a plane, flew it and that was that. Never once did I think to question why Kitty Hawk. I wasn't curious about if that first flight was all that was necessary to launch man into the heavens or even if the Wright Brothers may have had competition to be first....

Jul 6, 2009 - Driving to Dayton

We spent most of the day driving through rich farmland in Illinois, Indiana and now are resting up in Dayton Ohio (after a great maple frosted donut at TIm Hortons!). Tomorrow we are getting an early start to enjoy the Air Force Museum!
