History … all in our lifetime

We are in Montgomery, Alabama.  Durry is spending a couple of days doing genealogical research at the State Archives.   After we parked the trailer at the RV park, we went into the city center to do a little sight-seeing.  We walked through the Capital and walked by the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church and the Civil [...]

So is a trailer an RV?

In our travel log over the years we have rated our food and restaurants.  With this new mode of transportation (the trailer) we find that we are also rating the campgrounds.  We’ve yet to come to a conclusion on what has been the best and the worst sites….it’s so subjective that we may never be [...]

Today we did nothing.  Well…almost nothing.  We did laundry, which we hadn’t done in some time and rearranged the underneath storage on the trailer.  But the rest of the day, we sat around and watched fall come to southern Vermont. This campground…Greenwood…just outside Bennington is just off the Appalachian Trail and is perhaps the best campground [...]

Actually, I had hoped to do this more than weekly, but it was a week ago today we were in Oberlin, OH and that was the last post.  We went to their farmer’s market (not so great) and then went in to Cleveland to have a look around. I’ve only been through a couple of [...]

Good Days and Bad

We’ve had good days, great days and bad days.  The definition of each is sketchy.  Donna’s bad day is my all right day.  In fact, I have very few bad days.  That day in Montana when I took a bad road on a whim and didn’t seem to concerned, and then Donna didn’t talk to [...]

When we first started this trip there were a few places I wanted to visit, mainly for the purpose of following up on some genealogical questions I had.  But what has happened is I’ve stumbled onto the genealogical mecca tour, quite by accident. Our first stop on this magical genealogical tour was the ultimate repository, [...]

I really expected to post more frequently than I have.  Things get in the way.  Some times we have no coverage…sometimes it gets late…sometimes I get lazy…a lot of times I get lazy…more often than not I get to planning the next day’s adventures and find that it’s time for bed.  I could tell you [...]

Okay – we are going to a Michigan Fish Fry.   A little background and I say “little” because I know very little about what we might encounter. When we first lived in Michigan 30 years ago, “white fish” was on the list of things to avoid.  I think it was something about mercury or fertilizer, [...]

We tend to think of cell coverage and wifi as being mostly ubiquitous.  We’ve discovered over the past month (yes, we’ve now been on the road all of July) there are vast swaths of this country where neither cell nor internet is readily available.  That’s happened to us a couple of times, most recently this [...]

In my mind, one of the reasons we’re on this trip is … to eat.  Regional foods, unusual foods, different takes on old favorites, bad food done well, good food prepared poorly…I’m just pretty much into eating.  Just before we left, Donna’s sister gave her the latest book by Road Fooders Jane and Michael Stern…500 [...]
