Jul 26, 2014 - Ready to go!

Been a busy morning with a trip to the market, then three other stores for last minute stuff. Back to the house and packed up - and the cab has been called. To the airport in 45 minutes - then 24 hours or so into Copenhagen... But first Charlotte and Munich.

Jun 24, 2014 - Boston and back

After a too short night we got up at 3:30 AM caught the completely full airport shuttle at 4:20. To the airport and it took a while to get our boarding passes but we finally did - then in security we both got expedited security - kept on shoes and stuff. Nice. To the boarding area and boarded fairly quickly. The two hour flight to Charlotte was quite easy with no issues. I was sitting next to a 12 year old who was heading to St. Thomas to meet relatives. Talkative at times and quite at other times. To Charlotte and the plane to Lynchburg -...

Jun 10, 2014 - The Day Before

In ten hours the taxi will arrive to take us to the airport. Bags are packed and arrangements made. First excitement - other than finding we had to switch hotels due to a 6.5 earthquake last month - is that we cannot check in online. So now we have to try to figure out what is going on at 4:00 AM.

Jan 13, 2014 - All the way home

The flight was delayed about 40 minutes because the plane was there but the crew was coming in on another flight which was delayed. We left about 30 minutes late and the flight was quite bumpy most of the way. We seemed to slow down as we approached the airport but landed without any problems. It took them about ten minutes to locate steps so we could get off the plane though - and when we did it was indeed wet and cold. Luggage took another 20 minutes to arrive but I found the car without any problems, drove back to the house to flowers,...

All the paperwork is finally in hand. Tickets printed out. Car filled with gas. Pretty much everything I need is packed - even found an old wrist watch to take - though I might get a tan line :( Flight leaves Roanoke at 7:15 AM so need to be on the road about 5:00 AM... in the morning... Sigh. But on the bright side... Forest, VA - High 40 - low - 2 Playa del Carman, Mexico - High 75 - low 68 Belize City, Belize - High 79 - low 68 Antigua, Guatemala - High 75 - low 54 But rainy in all three.

Dec 22, 2013 - Cabin Fever - Lynchburg, Va.

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year. It's a day that I normally can't wait for it to come because I know longer days are on the horizon. Cabin fever overtakes our will during the dark days of winter. We are ready to travel. We are ready to head south. We are ready for some warm weather in Sarasota Florida. We can't wait for the day after Christmas to leave. We have never spent time in Sarasota. Last year on our Christmas break to Tampa, we drove down and toured the area. It was an area that we felt very comfortable and decided that...

Oct 19, 2013 - @Home

It’s much cooler, the yard is full of fallen leaves and there is 3 weeks of mail to go through. We are back home! Taking the Gulf coast trip in early October was a good time. We were lucky in that we did not encounter any hurricanes or bad weather and the tourist crowds were light. We were pretty spontaneous. All our RV stays were booked the same day. We truly ate our way along. South Texas BBQ was all beef, Cajun Gumbo was pretty salty and fried food is the norm. There was a restaurant in New Orleans that we wanted to have lunch ,...

Sep 25, 2013 - At Point A

Point A for the Landwanderer is her home, the RV Barn next to our house. It's a totally enclosed 50ft long, 16ft wide with 12ft high wall structure. Just the right amount of room for her 40ft length. The front doors are a total of 12ft wide which give a clearance of 4 INCHES on each side for the mirrors to clear. Darn good driving skills are required when backing her in. So far so good on my part! The weather is forcasted to be clear for our trip to Oklahoma, Point B. First we will stop to visit our daughter and family in Wytheville Virginia.

Jul 20, 2013 - A travel day

It was a busy day! We got up at 4:30 and put the final touches on our packing then the phone - our ride was here at 5:15. i went down and paid the hotel bill and Minna came down a bit later - the off to the airport. Not much traffic that time of day. we passed the old cathedral tower we had visited a few days earlier - this time from the road over the sea! All lit up - looked nice. At the airport there was quite a long line and when we finally got checked it it was too late to get anything from the duty free shop. Too bad. We got on the...

Jun 19, 2013 - Back to the USA

Up around 8:00 and ate some breakfast. Headed out in the intermittent rain to look for that last souvenir. In the tunnels there were herds of dark suited people – male and female - and the only sound was the click and thump of hurrying feet. I stood out in my green rain jacket – and walking on the wrong side of the path. Did find a place that was pretty good but sadly, in retrospect, I did not purchase any kangaroo scrotal sacks – either with hair or without. I know everyone wanted one… Anyway, back to the hotel and settled the tab, then...

May 31, 2013 - The day of departure

Up and final packing. Cab has been scheduled. Pile of stuff we're not taking. Must get the cat to the vet and who know what else. How do you pack a carry on for a 29 hour trip? Carefully! --- First couple of legs went well. Taxi showed up exactly on time and we were at the airport in 15 minutes. Plane was delayed 20 minutes out of Lynchburg but as we had a three hour layover, no problem. Got to Charlotte and had dinner, now at the gate waiting to head to Dallas. Got to Dallas with no issues as well. Played poker most of the flight. We'll...

May 30, 2013 - T minus one

The day before... The morning spent shopping for those last few things. Alice had her last day at school - "The most pointless day of school ever." All the documents seem to be in order and the schedule is set. Anticipation - and dread of the 29 hour flight...
