Vermont

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

We’re in a Trailer

We’re in a Trailer

Enough with all the pretty pictures of the North Dakota scenery…..because a major portion of our life is figuring out to be creative and sensible with eating and cooking in such a small space.  When we left Arcata we put everything from our refrigerator and freezer into the trailer’s compact fridge.  This morning before we [...]

A Long, Lonesome Road

A Long, Lonesome Road

Now we get to the long, open prairies.  Most of us don’t ever have to cope with the endless, horizon chasing roads.  The landscape rolls, drops, rises and twists…and repeats for hundreds of miles.  The drive sucks up hour after hour and before you know it, the gas tank is low and it’s time for [...]

Dinner Last Night

Dinner Last Night

We’re on our way to Yellowstone for the next five days.  Last night we stopped in tiny campground just off Highway 20 in Rexburg, Idaho.  We were welcomed with black skies, high winds and lots of rain.  But we had plenty of electricity to create a delicious stove-top dinner. Our dinner last night was a [...]

First Times at Skyline High

First Times at Skyline High

I lived in Salt Lake City from about 1964 until I graduated from Skyline high school in 1966.  In that time, you would think a peripatetic family like ours would have visited and viewed everything of interest in the area.  On this trip to SLC I’ve visited several venues for the first time ever. Last [...]

Off We Go…

Off We Go…

Into the wild, blue yonder…rising high, into the sun.  That’s sort of the way you feel as you go up and over the three passes that get you from the coast to the inland valley. We pulled the trigger half a day early and left after noon.  A couple of hours found us in Weaverville, [...]
