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. Unfortunately, I'm now a home wrecker and baby murderer. One of the eggs broke while I was removing the nest. A couple months ago, we wrote that since Cape Cod cancelled our reservations, we didn't know where we were going....

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...

Thanksgiving with Friends

Cocoa Beach, Florida

 Time is passing by fairly quick, although we haven't been doing much other than relaxing. Isn't that what "not traveling" and enjoying a winter break is supposed to be about? Our traveling friends, Bob and Joyce Childre, have a "sticks and bricks" home about 90 minutes from here. We met these friends in the Arizona desert about 12 years ago. Since then, we meet up about every 2- 3 years and ...
