Jun 30, 2012 - Leaving Home On I-95
The BIG STORM, from last night, still has our electricity out, what are we to do? Should we continue with our plans or do we wait and go when the the power is restored? This is the second storm in a week to knock out our power, and this was a much more widespread and damaging system. While we decide, we get ready. I fill up with gas, get the luggage by the back door and B readies the cats. Yes, we plan on taking the 2 cats, Duke & Ella, with us to Florida, their first car trip. Timing is critical, if we wait too long, we may as well wait...Jump to full entry
Apr 10, 2012 - DC - Day 1: A Journey Continued
This morning we pulled out from the Spain Inn at 9:20am without a definite idea of where we’d wind up. Certainly somewhere along I-95 but how far north was to be determined by traffic and road conditions. Ralph set the speed about 60 mph and we stopped whenever we felt the urge. Lunch was sandwiches in the camper eaten at a rest stop. That’s a wonderful thing about bringing your home with you. We made a couple of other stops for gas, restrooms, etc. Speaking of gas, it’s running $3.73 to $3.91. The closer we get to Washington, the higher...Jump to full entry
Oct 13, 2011 - Richmond VA
The weather was kind of iffy when we got up but looking at the radar it showed that things were pretty good looking down around Williamsburg so we got on I-95 southbound to I-295, around the east side of Richmond then onto I-64 and slid off at the Colonial Williamsburg exit – after a short stop at Cracker Barrel. We pulled in to the Visitor Center and as we walked up to the building a guy approached us and asked if we had tickets – which we did not. He then gave us a pair of passes that were good until closing time tomorrow that he was not...Jump to full entry
Oct 12, 2011 - Richmond VA
It started raining overnight and got worse from there. Not real heavy rain, but off and on (mostly on) drizzle all day. I made a run to the store for some necessities while MB caught up on some laundry and computer issues, we ate a couple times, walked the dog a couple times and that was about it until about 3:00 when we took off north on I-95 to Fredericksburg to meet friends for dinner. We left earlier than necessary to see what the town was like, but because of the rain we didn’t get to walk around, only drive. It’s a really old town...Jump to full entry
Oct 11, 2011 - Richmond VA
We left the campground for the short 2 hour drive west around DC on I-495, then south on I-95 to the KOA campground just north of Richmond in Ashland VA. The plan is to go see her cousin and family tonight, and then use this as a base for some more visiting and touristy stuff over the next few days. We are probably going to head over to Williamsburg and get a dose of pre-revolutionary war history and see what else the area has to offer – we aren’t too familiar with this part of the world so we will have to do a little research before we...Jump to full entry
Jul 19, 2011 - Day 8: Richmond and beyond
Had a leiurely morning, leaving the campground around 10:30. Drove back into Richmond to visit the Civil War Museum. The first place was the Tredagar Foundry which I'd never heard of. It furnished most of the cannon for the Confederate states. One of the rangers demonsstrated how to load a cannon - fascinating! It took a crew of 8 to load the cannon... and they could do it in 30 seconds!! The Civil War Museum was disappointing. Years ago we saw the Civil War museum in Gettysburg that was truly impressive. This one had a definite bias toward...Jump to full entry
Jun 23, 2011 - A Pleasant Surprise, But $$$
We got the word from the RV Repair Shop in Richmond that our mirrors were in, so we left Thursday morning heading inland hoping to get them fixed that day. We got there around noon, left Otto in their hands, and took off to do some errands. One of the main chores to be done was to replace our Garmin GPS which had stopped giving us directions. Since we use it every day, it was a kind of a necessity. We headed to Costco where we had bought it, receipt in hand, and were told that they could not do an exchange or refund as we did not have all...Jump to full entry
Apr 17, 2011 - Richmond, Virginia
Richmond, Virginia What a day!!! Since it rained all day yesterday and we were stuck in the RV, we had to make up a day of sightseeing. We put two days of exploring into one day. We rode into Richmond on the expressway which wasn't too bad since it was Sunday. We visited many places in Richmond: 1. Poe Museum -- This was so cool! It was a series of buildings that were purchased by supporters of Poe and turned into a museum of photographs, first editions,written manuscripts, furniture, artifacts that were part of Poe's life. The first...Jump to full entry
Apr 15, 2011 - On Our Way to Richmond, VA
On Our Way To Richmond, VA We left Myrtle Beach early Friday morning. We took a rural route to get to I-95. The sights of rural NC was really nice...lots of budding flowers and trees. I found that there were many old barns and outbuildings along the way. I found them particularly nostalgic because many were very rustic while others were in total disrepair. It was sad to see how time had taken its toll on once very important buildings to the farming community. We finally hit I-95 at Fayetteville, NC. The traveling was fine until we hit...Jump to full entry

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
