Jan 23, 2011 - Retrieving our stuff
Reluctantly we headed again to Cocoa to retrieve the car which had been left there to be fitted with a hitch. A few more frustrating days passed...refits, inverter installed, etc. Finally we struck northward to Va again. Jean capably drove with the "dinghy" in tow like a pro! Arriving on Sunday, we were able to park our unit close to the old one & start emptying. Monday saw much of the same except now we had 2 issues with the new RV: the batteries were not being charged as we travelled & lights were staying on. Of course, the guys found...Jump to full entry

Stuzzi Restaurant Info
Peter Caserta About Us Their homely fare dispatch’d, the hungry band
Invade their trenchers next, and soon devour,
To mend the scanty meal, their cakes of flour.
Ascanius this observ’d, and smiling said:
“See, we devour the plates on which we fed.”

Sep 20, 2010 - home sweet home added some new pics
well we made it home yesterday with no issue. The flight was long but good. We took the day off today to rest, shake off the jet lag, do mountains of laundry and get ready for the rest of the working week. Thanks for the notes along the way and following us on our journey. I will not subject any one to the hundreds of photos and countless stories like people did back in the day. I hoped that this journal would do that for us. However if there is anyone who really wants to hear the tales and see the pictures we would be GLAD to re live it....Jump to full entry
Jun 9, 2010 - Richmond to Cape Hatteras (again)
We had stayed two days at Asheville, and now drove into Richmond, Virginia, the capital. We took a look at the state capital building (of course) and would have liked to go into the Confederate "White House" to see the museum there, but parking was impossible due to road construction. So, we headed onwards the coast again, crossing over the Chesapeake Bay by it's more northerly bridges/tunnels. We drove down onto the North Carolina outer banks, and headed to the National Parks Service campground near the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, where we...Jump to full entry
May 16, 2010 - Seeing the Old Dominion
Hi Everyone! We left Hilton Head on Friday, May 14. That morning we took a brief ride into the Sea Pines Plantation (gated communities are called plantations), which was filled with very large yachts in the harbor. After about 3 hours of driving, we were in Bishopville, South Carolina. There, we saw topiary done by a private homeowner. It was amazing! Every plant, bush and tree on his property (and some on the neighboring properties) was perfectly manicured in beautiful shapes. Wait until you see the pictures! One of my car tires had a slow...Jump to full entry
May 1, 2010 - Richmond Raceway
Arrived at track early Thur morn for an easy pull in and set up. Surrounded by a lot of Canadians eh, funny to see Molson Canadian, Blue and Keith's after seeing nothing but Bud for last month eh. Everybody seems to say eh a lot eh. LOL. Camping right across the street from the track was worth the little extra money. Weather is heating up again tho so the duvet comes off again. Bright and sunny day on Fri, walked the track area and souvie sites, lots of gypsy vendors here. Anybody need a used race tire or a hood. Got our tixs watched the...Jump to full entry
Oct 17, 2009 - Museum of the Confederacy
For the first time since spring we have encountered a stretch of poor weather, it has been raining with temps in the mid 40's, so we are restricted in what we have been able to do. Thursday we checked out The Museum of the Confederacy and the "Southern Whitehouse" which are located downtown in the middle of the Virginia Commonwealth University and Medical College of Virginia's medical complexes. Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy and so much history is in and around this town. The Museum was well done and the Presidential...Jump to full entry
Oct 13, 2009 - Richmond, VA
Lancaster County, PA during harvest time was a terrific experience, seeing horse teams cutting the corn fields, Amish buggys trotting about and acres of pumpkins being picked. Alas it is time to move on, so today we drove the 225 miles south to Richmond, VA. We will be here for a few days stay tuned.Jump to full entry
Oct 6, 2009 - Richmond-Hollywood Cemetery
Richmond was supposed to be a big deal for us and we saved it for the end of the civil war part of the trip but it turned out to be a flop. We drove downtown to visit the Capitol of the Confederacy and White House, the Civil War Museum, Tredagar Works, and Canal Walk. There was no parking anywhere. I called the museum, they told me to park in hospital parking on 12th street. The security guard at hospital told us to go to the other hospital around the corner. Those people told us to go two blocks up but that was employee parking. People...Jump to full entry
Jul 4, 2009 - Another Walmart...maybe 2 for today.
Saturday, July 4th. We pulled out at 7:30am after having a coffee from McDonalds. Sleeze Sally, (My GPS) says it will be a 4 hour ride to our next Walmart in Mechanicsville, VA. Within minutes of getting on the freeway Wilma spotted a Cracker Barrel ahead about 26 miles. So we decided we would stop and have our breakfast. Back on the road getting close to our destination of Walmart when Sleeze said we reached our destination! NO WAY…only a Holiday Inn X-Press and another motel which I didn’t catch the name of. No Walmart in sight. Now some...Jump to full entry
