Feb 26, 2015 - Escaped Again

When we got up this morning it was clear we were on the rain/sleet side of the snow storm. It rained last night and snowed a little later. The ground was mostly slush this morning. We decided to push on north. I was worried that we might run into some ice on the roads, but by the time we left RV Vacationland, the traffic on I95 had dried out the travel lanes pretty much. As we traveled north you could see that there was a band of freezing rain that had coated the trees and by the time we neared the Virginia border there was a band of snow...

Nov 4, 2007 - Andrews AFB, MD

To Capital and Capitol04 November - I had an easy drive through the Baltimore and DC areas on my way to Andrews AFB (The President's Airport). My ol' grade/high school buddy Russel works in DC and has an apartment in nearby Bowie where he stays during the week (he actually owns the house and lives in the basement and rents out the rest of the place). I'll be meeting him tomorrow around noonish. I'll be here on base for 3 nights then follow Russel to his real home in Richmond, Virginia where I'll hang out for a few more days before...

Oct 13, 2007 - Washington DC, a memorial day ...

Today we paid a visit to Arlington National Cemetery and the city of Washington DC. The cemetery is the only National Cemetery under the control of the Army. All the others are taken care of by the Veterans Administration. Arlington has about 28 burials each weekday. Currently there are about 330,000 servicemen buried on the 624 acres. All of them have one thing in common: service to ehier country. To each one, no matter what rank or station, whether decorated hero or unknown, belongs a place of honor. There are graves of persons from every...

Oct 11, 2007 - Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland

Carla here--we've left Wichita, spent three days traveling east and are now outside Washington, DC at the Andrews Air Force Base campground. We're here until November 6, so we'll have plenty of time to sightsee and not kill ourselves trying to see everything we want to see.

The Nelson's Travels

Oct 10, 2007 - Mt. Vernon

We are staying at Fort George G. Meade Army Post, just about half way between Baltimore, MD and Washington DC. The post is something else. The bugles sound off with Reveille every morning at 0630, and with Taps at 2100. (9:00 PM). The RV camp is really nice. Lots of room between sites, clean laundry with an air conditioned lounge. The office has a store with just about anything you need for your RV. It's not camping world, but the necessities are available. The commissary and the exchange are both huge. We got the laundry and the grocery...

Sep 23, 2007 - Day 1-- The Capital

Every bone in our bodies hurt.... Whet we don't put ourselves through just to have a great time...... Let me tell you about our day today, or at least start to tell you but don't be surprised if I fall asleep in the middle of my story...... Let's see... We bought a two day pass to see the sights of Washington DC on a double decker bus that has the top out in the open. The Grayline bus picks us up right at the campground in the morning and returns you there at night..... The problem is, it picks you up at 6:45 in the morning....... That...

The Beginning

Sep 22, 2007 - Cherry Hill Park

During the night it rained and when we got up this morning it was foggy. .... We didn't have too far to go to reach our destination today..... Washington DC is just down the road about 75 miles or so, so we took our time getting hooked up........ When we left Gettysburg it was still foggy........ I was so disappointed because the countryside was so pretty and we couldn't see much of it.... Our dinner at the Mountain Gate was so good the other night that we decided to give it a try for breakfast....... This time it wasn't such a good...

The Beginning

Aug 30, 2007 - Heading to Washington DC

August 30, 2007 Are we CLUELESS or what? So how long has it been since the 3 oz. rule went into effect? And how many flights have we been on during that time? And how many things have we had confiscated because we slipped up? LOTS!!! When Phil says to me Wednesday when we are packing that he is going to put our toiletries in his carry-on, I say, "whatever" - I have so many things to worry about getting together, the least thing I'm worried about is what to pack - and how. You see this coming don't you? We check our one nice compact...

Jun 11, 2007 - On To Washington, DC

June 11 Brenda arose Monday morning and got all prepped for her workout, only to find the equipment and the room broken and dirty. Needless to say, she was mad, not just disappointed. We packed our gear and drove onto I-81 north, heading for the suburbs of Washington, DC. It was our plan to spend 3 nights in the area prior to heading on to New York. My preliminary on-line search of hotels was fruitless, as we could not get 3 consecutive nights at a reasonable price anywhere...not an auspicious omen. I-81 took us through the rolling treed...
