Chief Ladiga and Burning Bridges

Oh My!  What do I say about this trip?  Wow! As I stated before we are “winging it” this summer.  No reservations, just the general direction of North or Northwest as our heading and using camping apps as our guide. “Chief Ladiga!” I exclaimed while viewing Allstays.  https://www.chiefladigatrailcampground.com/ https://www.allstays.com/ “I remember seeing information about this… Continue reading Chief Ladiga and Burning Bridges

Campsite Numero Uno

After a long sometimes brutally hot day anywhere is nice. We used Passport America to find our first nights stay. We are at Ingram’s Marina and Campground near Quincy, Florida. It’s easy enough to find. Sites are well spread out and seem kept up nicely. The lady at the office was very pleasant and said… Continue reading Campsite Numero Uno

Here we go again.

Two years seem to be all Goodyear tires can give us. Every year we have a flat tire on one side or the other. Last year it was the passenger side, this year driver’s side. Fortunately, a Wal-Mart was nearby. Unfortunately, all they have are Goodyear. Oh well, it’s better than nothing. Next year we… Continue reading Here we go again.

Cross City Crosses

Taking the country roads has added benefits the highway doesn’t, being able to see American life. Cross City is a small town. It has a nice bike trail and a sense if patriotism. Way to go Cross City.

On the Road Again

Another school year done, another summer to begin.  This year promises to be quite interesting as we are changing things up a bit.  Normally, Capt. Jim prefers to make reservations for the whole summer.  This year we are “winging it.”  NO RESERVATIONS!  We plan on heading north, northish.  (Originally we were to go to Colorado… Continue reading On the Road Again

Roan Mountain Visitor Center

If you visit Roan Mountain, the Roan Mountain Gristmill visitor’s center is a must see.  The Gristmill has clean restrooms, a very nice gift shop, some educational areas that kids will especially like and the Mill itself, which has artifacts throughout.  Part of the river runs in front of the Vistor’s Center.  Fly fishermen were… Continue reading Roan Mountain Visitor Center

Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Sadler State Park turned out to be quite a gem, 395 Acres of beautiful forests on a peninsula of Lake Hartwell (56,000 acres).  We stayed on Loop #1, site # 1, a pull through that abutts up to the water. After quickly setting up, little man and I took a walk down to the beach… Continue reading Sadler State Park South Carolina June 4th 2017

Flat Tire  6-4-17

Thump, thump.  Flat tire on US1!  The front left passenger side of the camper suffered a flat tire.  Actually, flat is an understatement-it was shredded.  Not to worry, Capt. Jim was totally prepared.  The best tool he carried was an impact wrench, as it made quick work of the lugnuts.  He was a Pit Stop… Continue reading Flat Tire  6-4-17

Gordonia State Park, Georgia

Gordonia State Park was hard to find due to poor signage.  We almost missed it.  There was a separate entrance that we happened on while heading to Walmart.  We followed the GPS even though the sign on the road said “Dead End.”  It wasn’t a Dead End.  Go figure. It has a lot to offer;… Continue reading Gordonia State Park, Georgia

Laura Walker State Park

Laura Walker State Park is in Georgia. This park has pleasant staff. I loved how the Rangers talk to the kids as they played.  We watched as he even went over to a teen boy on a bike and shook his hand and had a short conversation.  This is a quiet, clean, well kept campground.… Continue reading Laura Walker State Park
