Van Recalls and More Tire Trouble – Kingsland Georgia

I've been hanging out in Kingsland Georgia since February 23. For the most part, the weather has been pretty nice but I swear it pours down rain (all day long) at least once a week. Recall Notices For Bella In early March I received a safety recall notice for the van. I may as well… Continue reading Van Recalls and More Tire Trouble – Kingsland Georgia

Leaving Homestead Florida – February 2021

In early February, when I checked the weather forecast, it looked like good weather was expected through my February 14 departure date. In short, it was supposed to be not too hot and not too cold with tolerable humidity levels. To Sombrero Beach for Nikki's Birthday My little girl turned a quarter of a century… Continue reading Leaving Homestead Florida – February 2021

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 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
