Search and discovery…more of GA and SC!

When our day shifts at the gate house are over and we’re not being lazy or resting our paws, maybe even plopped out on some tree limb like these dudes, we go out searching new discoveries! Sometimes it just a quick run to the north side of Augusta, GA and the burb of Evans or…

One month later, still hanging in Illinois!

Sometimes it feels like we just got here…most days it’s “when do we get to leave?!” But camp store hours seem to come and go, week by week and days off are like gold. We learn more and more what a camp volunteering gig can contribute to one’s substance in life. There have been ups…

Life can be a zoo or not, while we monkey around! (Gulf Shores, AL)

Wide window shades fully open, more blue skies, and lots of sunshine. This has been one fine month for December, 2014! I hope I’m not repeating myself. As if I’m not forgetting what I logged last time, there are the posts I already made to Facebook and Instagram. Guess if one app goes south, the…

Back to RV Living…yipee! (Alabama)

We escaped Mobile!!! Going back at least a few weeks to getting rid of the trashed Keystone Sprinter TT and moving into the new Grand Design Solitude 5vr, I’ll try to record a little history. Mr. Jer was involved in the initial water leak which was fixable. Then came the issue with the slide falling…

Biking Lake Simonton & the Studebaker Museum (Indiana)

Today, we Goggled the map for Simonton Lake just across yonder for a late morning bike ride.  “A” marks our take-off spot! Simonton Lake is the largest natural lake in Elkhart County. We managed to figure out wide enough lanes to get across to the north shore while taking in 10 miles today checking out…

Rainy day Wednesday! (Indiana)

The week is flying…  Knowing we are getting things updated, started, and crossed off the list…I still feel like many stones left unturned.  The cabinets were emptied and the files were rearranged.  I feel so organized and ready to take on routing this summer’s travels!  We will soon reach our ONE year anniversary and are…

Time is flying…15 days down, maybe 10 to go! (Illinois)

We can’t believe we have been here sixteen days already and only about ten left to go. We’re on the fence what day we actually pull out for Michigan, as this time of year the weather predicts the days you travel. And let me say, this was not the week to travel!  So many have lost…

How we spent EARTH DAY! (Illinois)

It’s Earth Day!!!! It’s Earth Day!!!!!! Can’t think of any better holiday to celebrate the beauty of our surroundings!  How tickled we are to be able to be out in the middle of it, day by day!   Traveling this great land, we have such a great appreciation for its beauty and always strive to leave…

Tis the season to REJOICE and be THANKFUL!

We left the weeks of whirlwind changes in a rig, direction of travel, and regrouping for holiday fun!  And what better place that the shorelines of the Mobile Bay and Gulf of Mexico! We’ve been lucky to have had pretty seasonal weather so far.  While a few nights we jumped into the low 30s, each…

Enjoying ALABAMA!

  Weathered the storm in Mississippi….just woke up to a few pine grass sprigs and twigs plastered to our rig.  Nothing a fast drive down the highway won’t get rid of!  I do have to say, you can’t hardly hear or feel the wind of a storm in our tight ship! We are now parked outside Montgomery, AL…

BOO! It’s going to be our 1st Halloween on the road!

We couldn’t ask for a better backdrop either.  We’re located on the Davis Lake in the Tombigbee National Forest in upper Mississippi and it’s a jewel!  Seems there is Tombigbee in Alabama, as a river, as a state park, etc.  The rich colors that surround this 220 acre lake have been so rich in hues…

House-sitting gigs can be GRAND!

Love it when family offers up the driveway, or even a chance to house sit while they take off for Disney!  One week down and one more to go.  What a lovely home and we were totally lost going room from room instead of wall to wall.  A mega washer and dryer that we could…
