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

Touring Wisconsin

North Point Lighthouse, Milwaukee, WI
After leaving the Sugar Bottom Corps of Engineer Campground in Iowa, we headed north into Wisconsin. This is another state we've never spent the night in, so it gets marked off the "bucket list"! We're now down to only 5 US states left that we've never spent the night in together. Our fist destination in Wisconsin was the Pine View Recreation Area operated by the US Army at Fort McCoy, near Sparta...

Visiting Minnesota and Iowa

Lake Superior North Shore Scenic Drive, MN
Wow! We've picked up the pace and have visited many places in these past couple of weeks! After the Corps of Engineer park near Minot, ND, we moved further east to Grand Forks AFB and stayed in their nice FamCamp (Family Campground). This is a quiet campground located in a back portion of the base. It's the kind of place we enjoy staying at. During our 3-day stay here, we visited the Ronald Reagan...
