We love getting off the interstate highways and taking the two-lane roads whenever we can. As I have said many times before, a Denny’s or a chain hotel at an interstate exit in Kansas is no different than one in Michigan or California. But the two-lane roads will take you to the real America. Small […]

Just a short blog today. We are in Jacksonville, where Terry has been going through a series of tests and medical exams at Mayo. If all goes according to plan we will be home tonight and the blogs will be back on track. I am going to be making a change to the blog schedule. […]

Note: I have already shared some of our activities while we were in Ohio and the trip there from Florida in previous blog posts. Now I will do several posts telling you a bit about our trip home. After our night in Charleston, West Virginia, the next morning we got on Interstate 64, a toll […]

After our very long day driving through West Virginia that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, we were both exhausted and slept very well at the Hampton Inn in Wytheville, Virginia. One thing Terry and I discovered on the trip is that king size beds seem to be the norm in hotel rooms these days. […]

Ever since I first heard John Denver sing about West Virginia I always wanted to go there and see those beautiful mountains and green valleys he sang about. While I always enjoyed the man’s music, apparently the part of West Virginia that John Denver was familiar with wasn’t along US Highway 52. We’ve covered a […]

Just a short blog post today. Terry and I got home last night from an eleven day road trip that took us from our home in Edgewater, Florida to Alabama to visit my son Travis and his wife Geli, and then just north of Nashville to meet up with long time RVing friends. From there […]

Magic Carpet Ride

My father was a voracious reader and a great storyteller, and from as far back as I can remember, he would tell us stories about Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn rafting down the Mighty Mississippi, John Henry beating the steam drill and dying with his hammer in his hand, Paul Revere’s midnight ride, and magic […]

My annual checkup at the V.A. hospital here in Lexington, Kentucky was scheduled for 10 a.m. yesterday, but we arrived a half hour early, and within about 5 minutes I was in an exam room where a nurse took my vitals, and then she took me in to see my doctor. He read over my […]

The Flying J at at Catlettsburg, Kentucky had several dedicated RV parking sites, but we were the only RV there Saturday night, which is a first for us. Usually Flying Js fill up with RVs early and they stay overnight, taking advantage of the company’s RV friendly hospitality. I don’t drink coffee because it might […]
