Yesterday, Miss Terry and I got to do two things we always enjoy; we got to meet long time readers Carl and Sandy Greenbaum, and we got to tour a really cool place with a lot of history to it. Carl and Sandy are fulltime RVers who are volunteering at Barberville Pioneer Settlement, which is […]

We love exploring America’s back roads and small towns and finding overlooked gems that the tourist brochures never cover. In a series of weekly blog posts we will be sharing some of America’s lesser-known small town museums, historic sites, and oddball attractions, on a state-by-state basis. We don’t have room to cover each and every […]

Yesterday was another busy day of playing tourist. I’ll tell you what, being on a permanent vacation is hard work! 🙂 We spent the day touring Old Sturbridge Village, a look at life in rural New England in about 1830. The village is a collection of old buildings moved here from all over New England, […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, to make the 90 minute drive south to Mystic Seaport, Connecticut. This was one place I have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember, and I’m so happy we finally got there. If you haven’t been to Mystic Seaport, it is a […]

I think Terry and I agree that yesterday was one that we will remember for a long, long time. I mean, how often do you get to spend a day playing with the Pilgrims? Plimoth Plantation, in Plymouth, Massachusetts is a living history museum where visitors can meet costumed interpreters to get a feel for […]
