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

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

Back To Nomadic – In Search Of My New Normal

The other day I thought to myself "I just want things to get back to normal". Then I realized... I no longer have a normal! Just for the record, I'm not normal to begin with. No matter how you look at it I've never been normal nor do I claim to be normal. My normal… Continue reading Back To Nomadic – In Search Of My New Normal

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
