Apr 15, 2018 - Rainy day discoveries

Sunday, April 15: Anderson/Lake Hartwell via Clayton, Georgia Weather: cloudbursts beginning about 11:00 did not let up until 18:00 Route: Greenville, SC → Tallulah Gorge SP (GA) –> Anderson/Lake Hartman KOA, SC Highlights: - We were all looking forward to the fresh eggs, even if we had to wake up at 7:30 to have time to eat them. Our host did them true justice – a simple egg, sunny-side up on a toasted blueberry pancake from yesterday followed up with a piece of fudgy chocolate cake and ice cream. Hubby had 3 pancakes and skipped the cake....

Dec 6, 2016 - TV Towers USA

. Last month, we spent a couple of weeks in Nashua, New Hampshire, parked in my son Glenn's driveway. Glenn even had a 30 amp plug installed for us. .

May 25, 2014 - Anderson, SC

May 25, 2014 Took a nice long walk through the neighborhood. Lovely streets with large trees, municipal parks and little lakes. Not too warm. Drove around Anderson. As with many towns, the downtown has lost the character it once had. Municipal buildings are maintained but other commercial enterprises are gone. The town population is about 26,000 but has nearly every mid-range car dealership along the main highway through town. Anderson is the smallest of the three primary cities that make up the Update Region and is nicknamed the “Electric...

May 24, 2014 - Greensboro, GA to Anderson, SC

May 24, 2014 Packed up the rig for our trip to Atlanta to have lunch with the Thompsons at the Capitol Club. We had to sport our “golf” togs so Bob put on a new polo shirt. It was so thin and poorly made that Denis took Bob to the club house to buy a shirt! Bob bought me one as well and flattered me with buying a “small”. NOT. So Denis and I went back to the club to exchange it. Poor Denis! All of this work before Denis made breakfast. Denis is well known for his poached eggs on toast. Mmmmm. Max made some fruit and it was a delightful...

Jul 31, 2013 - Mid Sized Anderson and Dinner With New Friends

I've mentioned the small towns of Westminster and Seneca, the nearest towns to Chickasaw at 11 miles away with a WalMart and gym we joined. Then we visited the larger town of Greenville at 67,000 that we fell in love with - about an hour away. But inbetween the two is the medium sized town of Anderson at 26,000. Although small, it has everything one would need with all the major chain stores, as well as a quaint downtown district where we found a nice place to have lunch. Anderson is named for General Robert Anderson, a Revolutionary...

Nov 7, 2012 - Long Day

Those of you followers of our blog know we don't travel long mileage days or at night. Well we broke both rules yesterday traveling about 500 miles and sampled 3 states. After voting in FL we drove the camper and Shirley's truck to GA. Stored the rig at Darci's, had dinner and off to SC for the night. We watched the election results and went to bed disappointed. The sun did come up in the morning after all. Computer is still down. Perhaps we can get it fixed on LI. PA or bust tonight. Sorry, no pics to enjoy. PS our 20 month stats will be...

May 23, 2011 - Anderson SC

Only 273 miles today and it took us 6.5 hours---lots of slowwww roads and hardly any Ryno Scenic Roads---lots of scenic roads, but they were suppose to be there! Sure love having S & T back on line (Streets and Trips-a navigation program for the laptop). Sam says he really liked it better and it worked fine until about 25 miles from our destination. A key was hit accidentently, the f bombs flew, and I had to look for a place to pull over and fix it. Of course, I'm so engrossed in getting it re-set that I don't realize I'm pressing down a...

Nov 18, 2010 - I hope you laugh as much at this as we did!!

Let’s see.... where to start... where to start... hmmm Well let’s just start with the fact that the needs of dependents you are traveling with seems to rise exponentially with the number. When we traveled with Brandi, it was a piece of cake. She hops in the car, settles down and enjoys the ride until we get where we’re going. The Ki added herself to the clan... and you all know what happened then to Phil’s lap and our ears when we first start out on a trip.. she doesn’t settle immediately... but adapts readily except for the lap bit. Then...

Jul 8, 2008 - Do rubber flip flops prevent being struck by lightening?

We left Alabama today, and spirits are low. I think we needed one more day there. The kids are feeling sad to leave all the new-found cousins and sweet aunties. We enjoyed the family get-togethers and hanging out in the Alabama river and the creek, but there just wasn't time see everyone and to do all we wanted. Today was hot and muggy. The trip was slow going, as once again, we didn't account for the time change. We had to add an hour as we crossed over the river into Georgia, so 2:00 became 3:00, and we ended up going through Atlanta...

Jul 1, 2008 - Back online

Anderson, SC Well, it's been a heck of a week or so. Last Monday we arrived in Pigeon Forge, TN to meet Butch & Anne, Joe & Carla, and Pat & Ralph. That evening while watching wrestling, the computer blew. It just quit, not to be started again. DEAD. I called Toshiba for instructions, and they sent me to a place in New Market, TN. So, we took a drive the next day and dropped it off. I was bummed, I'll tell you. The tech called me the next day, and said he couldn't find anything wrong with it!! He said there was a BIOS bulletine about the...

May 18, 2008 - Still in South Carolina

Some of you said you liked the pictures, so here are some more! I sent a video clip also and it may take a few minutes to download. We've had a very relaxing couple of weeks. Did some sightseeing, read some books, went for walks and hikes. One day we packed a lunch and the 3 of us went hiking waterfalls in the Blue Ridge forests. We had a great day and we all slept very well that night. We saw Brooke again and took her to dinner on Saturday and watched the college baseball game with her. Danny is playing golf today with the linebacker...

Q's Journey 2008

Oct 14, 2007 - Maggie Valley, NC to Anderson, SC

We continued on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, enjoying more beautiful foliage and terrific scenic viewpoints. We've been very impressed with the Blue Ridge Parkway and highly recommend it, particularly during the Autumn. We stayed in Lake Hartwell KOA - SSSs, which really isn't on the lake, but we enjoyed the stay, BBQing, drinking and watching football.
