A Mom and Nikki Florida Keys Day Trip

My first trip through the Florida Keys with Nikki and Cookie was back in February 2016. That's when the annual Mom and Nikki day trip to Key West was born. From that point on, when I visited Nikki each winter, we'd take a day trip through the Keys to Key West. The last thing we'd… Continue reading A Mom and Nikki Florida Keys Day Trip

Christmas Lights – Cookie’s Final Resting Place – Homestead FL

In early December I made the 5+ hour trip from St Augustine, Florida to Homestead, Florida. Normally, I don't like to drive more than a couple of hours in a day but the campgrounds in northeastern Florida were full for the Holiday's so I made the trip in one fell swoop. In the past, when… Continue reading Christmas Lights – Cookie’s Final Resting Place – Homestead FL

St Augustine FL – Getting Lab Work Done While On The Road

I left rainy, dreary Kingsland, Georgia on the morning of November 29. It was about an hour and 15 minute drive to St Augustine where I would be spending a few days at Stagecoach RV Park. I was lucky to find a campground with an opening. Many campgrounds here are either booked solid or they… Continue reading St Augustine FL – Getting Lab Work Done While On The Road

Leaving New Bern, NC – Van Repairs In Myrtle Beach, SC

After leaving New Bern, North Carolina I continued my southward trek. My destination was Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where I'd spend a couple days before heading to Kingsland, Georgia over the Thanksgiving holiday. Why Myrtle Beach? Myrtle Beach is primarily a tourist town. Most tourist attractions don't interest me and most public places can be… Continue reading Leaving New Bern, NC – Van Repairs In Myrtle Beach, SC

Moseying On Down The Road – Visiting Moratoc Park in Williamston NC

I left The Outer Banks after my chiro appointment Monday morning (November 16). My time in the Outer Banks was interesting with a mix of storms, after effects of a hurricane, power outages, back problems and talking with new neighbor's as they rolled in and out of the campground. I enjoy meeting new people at… Continue reading Moseying On Down The Road – Visiting Moratoc Park in Williamston NC

Still Hanging Out In The Outer Banks – It’s All About Baby Steps

I've extended my stay here in Rodanthe NC until next week so I can finish a good round at the chiropractor and, hopefully, hit the road with my back in good shape! My Back Is On The Mend I probably could have gotten back on the road by now but giving my back more time… Continue reading Still Hanging Out In The Outer Banks – It’s All About Baby Steps

Needing A Chiropractor While On The Road

I've had back problems since I was a child. I was supposed to do special exercises to strengthen my back but, as a kid, you don't always do as you're told. The doctor diagnosed me with "Growing Pains". Apparently "Growing Pains" is an official diagnosis. When I was 18, I was in a car accident… Continue reading Needing A Chiropractor While On The Road

Autumn In Smoky Mountain National Park TN and Maggie Valley NC

I have to be at campgrounds more than expected because my solar panels don't work with my new solar pack and I can't go more than a couple of days without plugging in at a campground (to recharge the solar pack). At this point, I'm just dealing with it because I'm contemplating making some changes… Continue reading Autumn In Smoky Mountain National Park TN and Maggie Valley NC
