Petersburg, VA – Apr 2021

April 29, 2021

Yeah!  I’m on the road again!  Currently in VA, just a couple days short of landing in MD where I’ll spend the next four months.  It’s been wonderful being mobile again, and thus far (knock on wood) the mechanics of the trip have been uneventful.  Since leaving my home base in FL in mid Apr, […]

Lake Wales, FL – Mar 2021 Update

March 30, 2021

I really hate being redundant, but once again, another month has ticked away here in sunny Florida.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’m retired, or that I try to stay somewhat active and engaged, or simply just the wonderful warmth of the Florida sun that makes the time fly by so fast.  […]

Lake Wales – Feb 2021 Update

February 27, 2021

As my brother so correctly pointed out, this travel blog has sort of become more of a Lake Wales Home Base blog, rather than a travel blog.  But given the circumstances, there’s not a whole lot I can do.  Still way too much virus going around, and most places to visit have limited attendance.  I […]

Lake Wales, FL – Jan 2021 Update

January 31, 2021

A new month, in a new year has arrived.  Difficult to believe that another month has passed, but so goes the time.  It was a crazy month, filled with highs and lows, and also marked the arrival of the Florida citrus season.  All the orange groves around us are now filled with bright orange fruit.  […]

Lake Wales, FL – Dec Update

December 30, 2020

Well, this toon by Clint Norrell is certainly representative of how most of us must feel by now.  Putting 2020 in our rear view mirror and heading into 2021 – hopeful for a return to the simpler times we all know and want so badly.  I for one certainly would like to get back to […]

Lake Wales, FL – Nov Update

November 29, 2020

It’s beginning to look like Christmas here in the Saddlebag Lake community.  We’ve just finished the Thanksgiving holiday, and now begin for the arrival of the last holiday of 2020.  I had a great November, complete with more family visits, more progress on projects, and a special treat catching up with my daughter, son-in-law, and […]

Lake Wales, FL – Oct Update

October 31, 2020

While parked for lunch in downtown Lakeland, a Blue Heron decided to take a closer look at my truck.  Maybe he was planning on hitching a ride somewhere?  Not sure, but he eventually moved on.  Another month has come and gone here in Lake Wales, FL.  It’s been a busy month as usual, with continuation […]

Lake Wales, FL – Sep Update

September 30, 2020

Well, another month has come and gone and I continue to thoroughly enjoy my time here at the Home Base.  The weather is just now starting to cool down a bit, so I know beautiful outdoor weather will soon be upon us.  I can’t wait!  During this past month I have done some visiting, and […]

Lake Wales, FL – First Impressions

August 30, 2020

Well, I’ve been here at the new Home Base for just about three weeks now.  I’m not fully settled in, but I’m certainly making great progress.  I’ve repurchased many of the things I had gotten rid of when I sold my house over five years ago – like a lawn mower, edger, blower, and an […]

Boerne, TX – I’m Done (for now)

July 28, 2020

It has been a wonderful 4 weeks here in Boerne, TX visiting with a long lost friend and playing tourist (well, as much as possible given this pandemic).  As has been the case pretty much throughout my nomadic journey thus far, time seems to fly by while I’m having fun.  But alas, my time here […]
