Covid Vaccine and Other Necessities

This past month and a half or so I've been hanging around The Homeland area taking care of appointments and getting other necessary things done while I'm here. Avoiding The Spring Spraying One thing about being here in the spring is having to avoid farm fields being sprayed as farmer's prepare to plant crops. But… Continue reading Covid Vaccine and Other Necessities

A Not So Pleasant Night – Climate Control Escapades

On March 16, I took Bella to the shop in Kingsland GA to get 2 recalls and a minor taillight issue taken care of. The shop told me it would only take "a couple of hours". So, I was expecting to be back at the campground in the early afternoon. FIVE HOURS LATER... Bella was… Continue reading A Not So Pleasant Night – Climate Control Escapades

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

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

Headin’ On Down The Road – Leaving The Homeland

My plan was to stay in The Homeland until October 19 but that plan quickly changed when I saw the night time temps dipping into the low 30's and upper 20's. When I chose October 19 as my departure date the night time temps were expected to be in the 40's until the end of… Continue reading Headin’ On Down The Road – Leaving The Homeland

Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

It's dreary outside, my work is done for the day and I sit here thinking about all the sunrises I experienced when I was on the road.  My bed (in the van) is across the back. Some mornings I'd roll over in bed, open the curtains and watch the sun rise. It amazed me that… Continue reading Reminiscing About The Florida Sunrise

Enjoying Some Down Time As I Prepare For What’s Next

The past few weeks I've taken a couple short trips around the area. It was just a couple hours here and there but it was W O N D E R F U L ! As I drove, I could feel the wanderlust pulsing through my veins stronger than ever and I'm (pretty much) ready… Continue reading Enjoying Some Down Time As I Prepare For What’s Next

Reflections From Solitary Confinement

I believe this is week 3 of our lockdown, quarantine, stay at home, shelter in place whatchamacallit orders. I've heard it called many things but I often (jokingly) call it Solitary Confinement. How Am I Holding Up?... I'm often asked how I'm holding up because... shortly after losing both Dad and Cookie my sudden aloneness… Continue reading Reflections From Solitary Confinement
