Our Cup of Tea

Say the words “Let’s go camping,” and each person will conjure up a different scene in their head. When I was younger with small children, camping meant pulling out the tent, sleeping bags, coolers full of ice and goodies and of course, lots of bug spray. Not any more. I’m too old for sleeping on… Continue reading Our Cup of Tea

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

Time for a Change

Finally figured it out. It was time for a change. I have changed the name of our site domain. Although 2bikes1boat.com served us well for many years, it’s just not as relevant anymore.

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

When the Coronovirus hit we prayed majorally. We prayed, like everyone else, for it to be some big… Continue reading Plan, Prep, (pray)

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

Little River Campground

Just outside of Ft. Payne, Alabama lies a quiet and most pleasing campground.  We found Little River Canyon Campground on the Passport America app.  We had driven quite a ways and was ready for a break. The campground wasn’t hard to find and was fairly close to Ft. Payne, which made day trips to town… Continue reading Little River Campground
