Our BIG Travels Plans Catch the Virus!

 For the past year, Connie and I have been making plans to take our full time RV travel plans to the next level. As Johnny Cash sings, "I've been Everywhere Man". Reading the words in Johnny's song, there's only 5 or 6 places mentioned that we haven't been to (we think). Since we've seen most of the USA, we thought it was time to take our travels to Europe. We have several friends who have or...

Road Trip to Arizona

Mill Creek Corps of Engineer Campground, Berlin Lake, OH
It was time to get to Arizona and help manage my Dad's house. We usually don't like to "rush" anywhere, but it was important we get back to the west soon. We planned a 12-day trip to get from Massachusetts to Arizona. Not really "rushing", but a pretty quick trip for us. Normally, we like to keep our travel days under 5 hours. We also wouldn't be driving everyday. Since we couldn't get our last mi...

Family in Massachusetts

Near Fourth Cliff Recreation Area, MA
When leaving the Gifford Pinchot State Park in Pennsylvania, we had a small problem bringing in a slide-out. We discovered we had a stow-away family tucked up under the awning.

Exploring Pennsylvania

Gettysburg Battlefield, PA
Before leaving Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania, we made one last day trip out exploring. This turned out to be a fun filled day!While enjoying a beautiful drive on the Pennsylvania country roads, we stumbled upon the "Kings Bridge",  a 127-foot truss covered bridge. Originally built in 1806, it's been renovated about every 100 years since. Very nice and sturdy construction. Later in ...

Touring Michigan, Part Two

Mackinac Bridge Viewed From Fort Mackinac
Before leaving Sault Ste. Marie, we toured the Museum Ship Valley Camp. The Museum Ship Valley Camp was built in 1917 and retired in 1966. After 1966, the 550 foot long freighter was permanently docked on historic Water Street and transformed into a museum. The Valley Camp offers more than just a tour of her deck. Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...
