Hipcamp Craziness

It saddens me that one of the first post for this summer’s trip is going to be a sad one. But, unfortunately, that is the way it is sometimes with this way of life. Can’t all be sunshine and Kumbayas. We have had many days of point A to point B travel. We’ve stayed at… Continue reading Hipcamp Craziness

Chennault Aviation and Military Museum

Stayed overnight at a really cool Harvest Host. Chennault Aviation and Military Museum. Took tour this morning. The docents were amazing and so passionate. Kaye and Roy were so kind and really knew their subjects. And, yes, Kaye you made me tear up a little. You watch a short video that makes you understand what… Continue reading Chennault Aviation and Military Museum

Goodbye yellow brick road

When are you gonna come down?When are you going to land? Elton John Swallows were common sights during our travels, often seen flying over fields, barnyards, and frequently right in front of our truck. According to https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Barn_Swallow/overview “Barn Swallows often cruise low, flying just a few inches above the ground or water. True to their… Continue reading Goodbye yellow brick road

Rainy Day blues

Jim looking out of the back window of Betty Deux at Limon, Colorado KOA.

I have decided to change my format of my blogs. Keeping it simple. One photo, a tid-bit of information and a personal connection. Nothing more, nothing less. Willie Nelson sings that “If you don’t like this rainy weather you better pack your bags and move.” The wind howls and screams past our little home, rocking… Continue reading Rainy Day blues

Wanderlust

Wanderlust settles in me like a too tight favorite jacket.  I’m excited about wearing it, but it pinches all the same.  School wraps up this week and the countdown begins.  With that comes intense anxiety.   Can I get everything done in time?  What will I forget?  I’m adding to and amending my packing list constantly. … Continue reading Wanderlust

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

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

No coffee in the house

Saturday,  June 3rd,  2017 After an uneventful, quiet night at Laura S Walker State Park we are once again on the road. Having no coffee “in the house” causes one to pack quickly and efficiently. The gas problem was solved five miles down the road in a teeny tiny town called Hoboken. I kid you… Continue reading No coffee in the house

The people are home but no lights are on

Friday June 2nd, 180 miles into the trip. How can a whole town be without electricity? We stopped for lunch along Highway 121, Brandy Branch Road AKA Brady Brunch Road, according to Captain Jim. It was a quaint, meaning tiny, little gas station. We pulled in and decided to have some lunch and a much-needed… Continue reading The people are home but no lights are on

Boondocking and Internet

Current Temperature:  57 degrees Current Location: Ellsworth, Maine Current Campground: Seawall Campground Acadia National Park I will keep this short as we are sitting in a Laundromat waiting for clothes to dry.  One of the problems with camping, especially boondocking, is the lack of internet opportunities.  No, we do not have a hotspot.  If we… Continue reading Boondocking and Internet
