Jan 5, 2016 - Fredericksburg, Virginia

I went to my dermatologist on Monday. She removed the stitches from my side. The biopsy was negative. Susan and I have identical shoulder bags. She stuck her camera in mine by mistake Sunday, so we dropped it off and had lunch with her before we headed south. We spent last night in Allentown, Pennsylvania. We are in Fredericksburg, Virginia, tonight. It has been a trouble-free trip so far. We spent a few hours this evening with Gabriel. We took him out to dinner. He wanted to go to a Japanese steakhouse and then to a frozen yogurt shop...

Our 2016 Travels

Dec 12, 2015 - The GPS lady found the shortest route ... right through New York City

We hear the stories about the lady in the GPS telling you to drive over a bridge that was torn down 20 years ago, these modern marvels aiding travel aren't perfect, but I can't imagine traveling without one. I'm thinking about getting a new one after our trip from Nashua, New Hampshire to Fredericksburg, Virginia this week. The first part of the trip went swell, just a hundred miles to Nickerson Family Campground in Chaplin, Connecticut, a beautiful trip on a road winding up and around, passing post card views. The camp staff couldn't have...

Oct 17, 2015 - aAlman’s BBQ - Best Ever

Whenever we are in the area we ALWAYS stop at Alman’s BBQ, it is by far the best BBQ with vinegar bases sauce we have ever had. Great pulled pork with a thick (cooked) vinegar based sauce that Momma, Alman’s has been around since 1949 in the original building.

Sep 24, 2015 - On The way Home

FREDERICKSBURG KOA CAMPGROUND.....Fredericksburg,VA Thursday We rolled out a little before 8 this morning. I had breakfast and Edie had coffee. Then we began stowing for travel. Our trip today was only 208 miles, so there was no big hurry in getting started. It was 10:15 when we departed. About 12 miles west on US340 we stopped and topped off the fuel tank. From there it was west on US30(The Lincoln Highway) to York, where we got on I83 and headed south. There were quite a few hills on this route. Bypassed Baltimore on I695 west which...

Sep 15, 2015 - A pretty day in Virginia

FREDERICKSBURG/WASH KOA CAMPGROUND...Fredericksburg,VA Tuesday Another cool night with the furnace running off and on. A pretty sun shiny day, with a high of 80. Lots of leaves falling in the woods here. Took it easy this morning...seems like we do a lot of that now....then got out and aired up the tires on both vehicles to compensate for the cooler temps. Re-installed the tow bar on the coach to make ready for travel tomorrow. Had a few other minor chores. Edie washed her hair this morning, now that all her stuff is available with the...

Sep 14, 2015 - Fix it Day

FREDERICKSBURG/WASH KOA CAMPGROUND. Fredericksburg, VA Monday Was up at 0800 calling people. Turns out we have a super RV Dealer about 15 minutes away. After talking to Fleetwood factory support to determine if I could move the coach, I drove it over to Safford RV. I had imagined all sorts of huge repairs taking days. They went to work on it, found that a nut had come off of a bolt that held a drive shaft to a motor, and fixed it. At about 3PM we were back in the the campground and got set up again. Yesterday I had cancelled our future...

FREDERICKSBURG/WASH KOA CAMPGROUND...VA Sunday Both pretty tired today. Tried to relax some. Went and did a little shopping in the evening, for some things we couldn't access in the bedroom. Weather is nice..Cool..leaves are falling off the trees. Had supper at a Bob Evans restaurant, so I got a cornmeal mush fix. In the morning will get on the phone and try to get our house repaired.

Sep 12, 2015 - Onward to Virginia

FREDERICKSBURG/WASH KOA CAMPGROUND....Fredericksburg, VA Saturday A 304 mile drive today all on I95. Pretty good road most of the way. Drove through some torrential downpours in the Richmond area. Weather had cleared by the time we got here. Hooked up the utilities then started to deploy the slideouts. The bedroom slid went out about 4 inches, made a clattering noise and quit. Brought it back in and tried again...same result. Went outside to look and found that the room was cocked at and an angle and obviousley hung up. Brought it back in...

Jun 11, 2015 - Fredericksburg, VA

Today I made the 40-minute drive to Fredericksburg to tour some Revolutionary War-era homes and Civil War sites. This whole town just oozes history. I first toured the Rising Sun Tavern which was originally built in 1760 as a home by Charles Washington, George's youngest brother. It later became a tavern and inn mostly for the upper class. A meal was 25c and "bed space" was 21c in a time when the average annual income was about $200. Women and men were served dinner in separate rooms. It was about 50 miles to the next tavern which took...

Kizer Summer 2015

Feb 21, 2015 - Baptism for Audrey

We arrived in Fredericksburg, Virginia yesterday, after taking the worst possible route, winding up on the Washington "Beltline", paying several tolls, including a final one of $5 to travel about a mile. We'll be smarter next time. Checking into the Fredericksburg/Washington KOA about 15 miles from son Tom's apartment, we learned the water system there was frozen, the first time, they said, since buying the camp in 1975. But, we had our own 75 gallons and it wasn't a problem. Only a few other RV's this time of year, and most were up and out...

Sep 19, 2014 - Driving around the area battlefields

We drove through 3 of the 4 battlefields today and it was pretty disappointing. The battlefields have signs along the street you are driving on but the traffic is moving 55 miles an hour so there is no way you can look at the signs they have put up. I would say not very good planning on their part. There was one visitor center we went through and it was OK.

Jun 7, 2014 - Trip Rpt. No. 4. -- Potpourri

I covered a lot of ground since my last posting. All of it was fun for me, but a lot of it may not be interesting to others. The Wilderness & Spotsylvania Courthouse I went to both the Wilderness and Spotsylvania sites of the battles fought in 1864. The Wilderness site overlaps with that of Chancellorsville (1863) and the Spotsylvania site is only a short distance from the Wilderness by car (not so much if you happen to be toting a 40-lb knapsack and a heavy gun while wearing a wool uniform in a Virginia summer). These two battles were the...
