December 8, 2019

What a wonderful month of November. I spent the better part of the month in the terrific town of Austin, visiting with family and playing tourist. Then, I escaped for a week and flew back to MD to be with family and friends for Thanksgiving, and to visit with my new granddaughter. To say it […]

Waco, TX – Final Weeks

November 7, 2019

It was yet another fast and furious two weeks that once again went by too fast. I managed to get in all the sight seeing I had on my list, and even a few that were not on the list. I would have liked to have seen more of the local family, but I realize […]

I’ve booked four weeks in Waco, two weeks at two different Corps of Engineer (COE) sites along Lake Waco. I’ve just finished my first two weeks at Airport Park COE, and yesterday moved to Midway Park COE on the other side of the lake. Not as scenic from my actual site, but a nice place […]

Hot Springs, AR – Travel In Time

October 3, 2019

Ah – the beautiful and historic bathhouses of Hot Springs, now a National Park Service managed area. It would be exactly 40 years ago that this area used to be my stomping grounds. As a 20 year old, I was stationed to Little Rock AFB back in 1978-1979 as my first duty station out of […]

Nashville & Memphis, TN – It’s All About The Music

September 26, 2019

In retrospect, only spending a week each in Nashville and Memphis was probably short sighted as there is so much to see in these two great cities. Also, waiting until I visited both of them to write this blog was also probably a mistake as I’ve got tons of pictures and stories to share. So, […]

Elkhart, IN – RV Capital

September 8, 2019

Welcome to the RV Capital of the World! Elkhart County, comprised predominantly by the towns of Elkhart, Goshen, and Middlebury, account for 80% of all RVs manufactured in North America. That is a staggering number of RVs produced in this rural and otherwise farming community. But, given my love of RVs and the RV lifestyle, […]

What a summer it was – spending almost two months in Michigan. Though I had never been to this state before in my life, I have certainly quickly and fully fallen in love with it.

Muskegon, MI – USCG Festival

August 9, 2019

As I work my way down the west side of Michigan, I continue to find spectacular evidence of summertime paradise. Lake Michigan is magnificent, and is as vast and enjoyable as any coastal ocean beach. Above is a view of Grand Haven State Park, on the coast of Lake Michigan and which also includes beach […]

Traverse City, MI – Sleeping Bear

July 28, 2019

Alas my first two weeks visit to the north/west side of Michigan is now in the record books. There sure was a lot to see and do in this area, and its beauty and splendor was most certainly seen and appreciated. This truly is a summer wonderland with outdoor recreation a plenty. I’m glad I […]
