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…

South Carolina Day Trip…Greenwood and McCormick

Our first real local road trip, we left earlier than usual one morning in hunt of a local farmer’s market. Knowing there is one in Augusta, our first thought was, “no way am I heading towards all of the Master’s Golf Tournament traffic.” So first market that popped up on a Google search proved to…

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…

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…

Off the Beaten Highway in Branson! (Missouri)

Being in the Branson area, it’s not all live shows, shopping, and traffic!  Thank goodness!!!! Table Rock Dam is one long piece of concrete….we learned it’s enough to span a sidewalk from Maine to California!  And crystal clear water….no kayak, yet!!! The Dewey Visitor Center is beautiful and is the start of a walking trail…

Take me to the 4H County Fair! (Indiana)

This week, taking advantage of more perfect temps, we headed over to the Elkhart County 4H Fair! The fair is held in late July in Goshen, Indiana. It is the second largest county fair in the country.  Over 250,000 guests visit the Fair during the 9 day event. This fair is known for its free grandstand…

Tart Cherries from Lehman’s and another MOD! (Michigan)

This week we crossed the state line again. This time in hunt of an orchard….word on the street was the tart red cherries were ready for picking! Not too far from Elkhart, you’ll find Lehman’s Orchard outside Niles, Michigan!  Ralph Lehman started the orchard back in 1929 with 40 aces of red tart cherries.  Through…

My husband is kidnapped (figuratively speaking, of course)! (Indiana)

Here is Mr. Jer! “You handsome devil!” The pre-birthday boy…3 days and counting, when his red, white and blue medical card goes into effect! Well yesterday he was kidnapped….per se. You see, he chauffeured my sweet sister off for her post surgery check, while I tended to a basket of laundry.  “See you in an…

Crossing state lines and a Carousel….(Indiana)

Less than five miles from the state line, we sometimes find ourselves in Michigan, while other times in Indiana.  Being this close to numerous produce markets we’ve been buried in asparagus and strawberries!  Next up, we are beginning to see the cherries. Not to say, we don’t still venture into Aldi’s.  You can’t beat the…

Whirlwind road trips! Goshen, etc. (Indiana)

Two days ago we were off and running….Mr. Jer was EXCITED!  A RV factory tour coming up!  After a few days research, I had a list of many things we might wanted to see in northern Indiana. Let’s check out Goshen! First up, The Old Bag Company! The facility was originally built as a four-story…

Beautiful days continue in Alabama…

Beautiful days continue at Gunter Hill walking the roads littered with bridges back to our sweet campsite. But my highlight was Sharon and Ron joining up from Tinycamper, in which you can read all about her visit too.  She was everything and more than I imagined.  Such a sweetness that is infectious.  I can listen to…

Living on the Mississippi…

Living on the Mississippi brings  a sense of commerce with endless barges, wildlife, new neighbors, and cool gently breezes.  While our trip comes to a close in Iowa and living on the Mississippi, we have sure enjoyed this stop.  Clark’s Ferry COE has been an enjoyable campground.  Well kept, fairly decent shower houses, and a…
