Jul 10, 2014 - Ending our first day at Planet Lodge

Our first full day at Planet Lodge was a wonderfully relaxing day! Our group went into town to obtain local currenty -- the shilling, which is 1.6 to our $1.00. So, 10,000 shillings would be approximately $6.25 in US Dollars. We went to the local grocery to stock up on supplies -- i.e. alcohol and snacks. Afterwards we were going to walk through the town, but our driver advised us not too, as he was concerned that the locals vendors were out numbering us and he felt that it wasn't too safe from pick-pockets, etc. I have to say the local...

Apr 11, 2014 - 4/11/14 Houston, Texas

Spent a wonderful Thursday evening at Charity's beautiful house having a girl's night. I met her friends and found every single one of them to be funny and friendly. We had a good time telling stories about being ripped off by plumbers and haunted houses. I even drank some Sweet Ass wine and was able to leave her home at midnight sober. I now have a new friend on FaceBook from that gathering... hope she can take the somewhat questionable discussions that always seem to happen on my page! (Not naming names Di and Ann Elida!!) LOL Picked up...

Mar 20, 2014 - Houston, we have a problem

"Houston, we have a problem", those words we all remember Tom Hanks, playing astronaut Jim Lovell, saying in the movie Apollo 13. In actuality it was: "Houston, we've had a problem" was said by Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert, played by Kevin Bacon in the movie, on April 13, 1970. I remember the first flight of an American, Allen Shepard, riding Mercury 3 'Freedom 7' Redstone rocket into space. Then the missions were controlled from Cape Canaveral Florida were the actual flight was launched. All Mercury(one astronaut) program fights and...

On the road again, destination Huston TX. Pete bought a LED Light strip for under the motorhome at the PPL (RV store and needs to pick it up there, excuse). We canceled the prior reservation we had and decided just drive to another RV park, unfortunately they were full so Pete decided that we will drive to PPL, to get there we had to drive through downtown Huston. What a ride, I was glad that we finally arrived. I got a headache from navigating here. PPL has few spots for customers so we staying on the parking lot but had water and electric...

Mar 11, 2014 - Houston Rodeo & REO Speedwagon

Hello Everyone, Well, we finally made it to TEXAS! We started off in Houston because they were having their famous Houston Livestock & Rodeo! In addition, they have a live concert every night, and when we went on Monday, it featured one of my favorite bands, REO Speedwagon! For the first time since we started this cross country trip, we were forced into separating the Truck Camper from the Truck because the roads around Houston were so big and fast - way too fast for the scooter! At the Houston Rodeo, we saw everything from newborn Calves,...
