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

Invade their trenchers next, and soon devour,
To mend the scanty meal, their cakes of flour.

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
