Sep 14, 2014 - A Cold Cough

There was a time this morning that I thought to myself that we were not going to make it home. We had driven about 400 miles yesterday and spent the night at a Walmart Parking Lot in PA. Our plan, get up by 6am and be on the road by 7am and be home by by 2pm. We woke up in the cold with the heater off. It was 52 degF outside and very foggy. As soon as we left the Walmart Parking Lot, there was this big hill we had to climb. The Dutch Star would only go 25mph and transmission alarms sounding, semi behinds blowing his horn….It was worrisome....

Aug 12, 2014 - There and back again

Boarded our flight in Munich at about 12:30 with a whole bunch of children. We also had seats in the middle of the row - it was an uncomfortable flight. Two young kids (2 and 4 or so) in front of us were constantly moving about, one even hitting the man in from of him on the head with a stuffed toy. Both fighting and squabbling the whole time. The mother (I guess) sat on the end and did little about any of it. There were also several babies who seemed to cry sequentially rather than simultaneously. Then there was the woman who kept her...

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...
