Thanksgiving with Friends

Cocoa Beach, Florida
 Time is passing by fairly quick, although we haven't been doing much other than relaxing. Isn't that what "not traveling" and enjoying a winter break is supposed to be about? Our traveling friends, Bob and Joyce Childre, have a "sticks and bricks" home about 90 minutes from here. We met these friends in the Arizona desert about 12 years ago. Since then, we meet up about every 2- 3 years and ...

Spending the Winter in Florida

Patrick AFB, FL Marina
Kentucky  While staying at Camp Carlson at Fort Knox we did see the United States Bullion Depository, but visitors aren't allowed and they don't give tours. They publicly state there's over 147 million ounces of gold stored there, currently worth over $216 BILLION  dollars. Photos aren't allowed, even from the highway, oops!

Goal of 50 States Reached!

National Museum of the US Air Force
Kudos To Us! ​Last month, I forgot to congratulate ourselves on our 15th anniversary of traveling full time in a motorhome! We sold our house in Arizona (and about everything else) and moved into our motorhome on September 9th, 2004. We've been having so much fun and new adventures with this lifestyle we don't when (or if) we'll ever stop. But who knows what the future holds for us. Tonight, we al...

From Michigan Into Indiana

Sleeping Bear Dunes, MI
From the Bay County Fairgrounds, we headed back west to the shore of Lake Michigan at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Park), MI. We had reservations at Platte River Campground for an electric site. Generators aren't allowed in this campground, but most sites have electricity. This National Park is known best for the feature which the park is named, the perched sand dunes ...

Touring Michigan, Part Two

Mackinac Bridge Viewed From Fort Mackinac
Before leaving Sault Ste. Marie, we toured the Museum Ship Valley Camp. The Museum Ship Valley Camp was built in 1917 and retired in 1966. After 1966, the 550 foot long freighter was permanently docked on historic Water Street and transformed into a museum. The Valley Camp offers more than just a tour of her deck. Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...
