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

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

The Country roads are taking me home

We discovered this summer that Betty Deux is our home not just a house on wheels. For whatever reason, there is a comfort level achieved there that is not present in our brick and mortar house. Sure there is only a fraction of the room. We are limited on the things we can take with… Continue reading The Country roads are taking me home

And then comes along some Rooster with a creative brain and voila you have a made from scratch yard art!! This was one of the neatest shops we have been… Continue reading Funky chicken

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

Plan, Prep, (pray)

We have planned. We have prepped. We now pray. And this being spring and summer of 2020 we do a lot of praying. It’s inevitable. Something will happen, it’s going to and nothing you do stops it. When the Coronovirus hit we prayed majorally. We prayed, like everyone else, for it to be some big… Continue reading Plan, Prep, (pray)

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
