Farewell Gulf Shores, AL…off to GA!

Snowbirds were disappearing by the dozens…we watched the calendar knowing it would be soon be time to pack up and leave the Gulf Shores area of Alabama! What’s always felt like our little bit of Paradise, it would soon be biding us a good-bye! It was time to take down the camp and find homes…

Six months later…back on the road to Alabama!

After six months completing a camp volunteer gig at Double J Campground in Chatham, IL, we are back on the road! Jimmy landed and I knew all would be good! We’ve had dragonflies, hummingbirds and lastly, this adorable grasshopper land before take off time…I took it as a sign! Our final days, we took in…

Back through Mississippi to our summer gig in Illinois!

Like two lost souls just floating around on the pond…contemplating life! We’ve made it to our summer destination from Gulf Shores, AL, alive and kicking. Both the Ford diesel and RV ran like the berries and we were super impressed with their performance. I guess a new computer and alternator kicked things up…pulled like it…

Bye Bye Gulf Shores! Off to western AL!

We got the green light and it was time to prep, say good-byes, and hit the highway! First up, good-byes to our friends Tom and Madelyn who spent a month in our park. They were the icing on the cake to our last month, not to forget their niece and husband, Angie and Jeff, tickling…

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…

Alive and kicking! (Alabama)

We’re still alive and kicking and we turned the corner back to where else – the Gulf coast! Now this wasn’t planned….we have this nasty water leak as you may know and we’re almost at point where the dealer is going to uncover the whole mystery!!! We left Hattiesburg and headed south to Gulfport, MS…

Continuing on our Pre-Tour! (Mississippi)

Making our way south to Alabama…and I’m calling it a pre-tour. I’m making notes of everything I want to come back and see! We left Greenville, MS and glided toward Hattiesburg, MS. Down Hwy 1, east on Hwy 14 thru the Mississippi Delta to catch four lane Hwy 49 due south. Farmers were out in…

The final days outside Branson! (Missouri/Arkansas)

MOO!!! Hey guys, did you miss me?! It was our last day outside Branson, MO and we decided to make one last walking tour on the trails and grounds of the College of the Ozarks. While we anticipated taking advantage of a month long rate, three weeks was well enough in this area.  We were…

Another National Battlefield and some Italian goodness! (Missouri)

We busted out of dodge and headed North for the day. Destination…Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield but not after a stop or two in Springfield, Missouri. We took a quick run through a RV show … nice collection with about six dealers with their inventory. Still drawn to the Keystone Alpine 5vr someday, but not making any…

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…

Back in home state! (Indiana)

This is “Take 2!” Just about to publish this post….gone! Not sure what I did, but it’s gone. Starting it over could prove to be a short and sweet update as I’m irritated! I need to be back here! We are camped out at Elkhart Campground and digging this place.  Quiet, nice neighbors, and who…
