One month later…Tupelo to Gulf Shores!

The first week of November, 2015 and already we’ve spent numerous hours with our feet dug in the white sand, under an umbrella, yakking with the locals, and mesmerized by the waves. Pelicans, dolphins, an occasional shark, stingrays, and plenty of other marine life to keep us captivated. Even warm enough to get in and…

Discovering local parks! (Central IL)

Despite the ups and downs of not so nice weather, we’re settling into our camp volunteer gig quite nicely! I can check someone in almost fast as lightning and have mastered the camp store cash register with only one boo boo! Mr. Jer makes a fine escort (just saying) and is officially trained to fill propane. We’ve…

Ten days into the New Year, 2015!

Because I’m happy Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof Because I’m happy……… Camp “Happy” Sands is part of the Gulf National Seashore in Perdido Key and made for a HAPPY day full of sunshine and cool temps in the 50s. The ole’ geezer pass passed us through free of charge…

59 degrees, sunny and E wind at 1mph! HEAVEN!!! (Alabama)

Took off a little late today…destination Farmer’s Market didn’t happen. Plenty of Saturdays for that! “Let’s ride up to the Bon Secour NWR since the weather was so ideal, I asked Mr. Jer?” “I’ll pack a lunch, we’ll gather some more Christmas gift findings for my artsy gifts in my head, and just take in this fine…

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…

H = Hills and Heat! (Missouri)

The lessons we learn….”We’ll take the 80s over the 90s any ole’ day! Darn, it’s hot in southern Missouri!  And we’ve found the hills! We headed toward the Branson area for our next stopover, wanting to be able to sightsee the surroundings, side trip into Arkansas and Springfield, and work on a few mods and more…

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…

Happy Spring and lots of family time! (Illinois)

Everywhere we look, signs of Spring! How long has it been since the Easter weekend gave us perfect weather?!  We’ve settled in again and everything is a buzz! The robin left her egg on the edge of the driftwood…oops! The monarch has come alive.  The purple martins are thick. Cardinals singing!  Grass is the greenest ever! The…

Rev it up – this has been a long week!!

SO, SO TIRED for some reason!  So my co-worker just offered up an energy drink.  A ROCK STAR!  Well, I’m always open to trying new things…and it is labeled that it has all kinds of Vitamin Bs, 10 calories, humm…….  Don’t imagine it’s probably any good for me and I might be bouncing off the walls…

Weekend re-cap…Weldon Springs State Park!

We survived the weekend.  Next time hit the FESTIVAL early.  Gheez, I bet 200,000.  Managed to get thru the long line for ham and beans.  Apple fritters early and then apple cake.  Oh and not to exempt the fried apples for breakfast.  A bag of cracklings.  So much China made…and people with bagfulls.  So glad…
