On Sunday, November 19, we made our way from St. Louis out of the urban noise to a really quiet place in the country Southwest of Bowling Green, KY. However, was a short stay with only a few hours. After setting up at Singing Hills RV Park outside of Mammoth Cave National Park we had to pack up and head south. Jason was not able … Continue reading Shortest Stay Yet!
The primary reason for our coming to St. Louis was to celebrate the crazy penguin lady’s birthday at the St. Louis zoo. We were in River Falls when Barb turned over another year on the odometer and we decided to celebrate instead in St. Louis. Access to the penguins at this habit is really great for interacting with them. While it was actually warmer INSIDE … Continue reading Crazy Penguin Lady!
So today we take the next big step in our journey. We are finally leaving Wisconsin. Off to visit with Barb’s family in Iowa. Due to our truck issues our visit will be shorter than originally planned, but it will be nice to catch up. Jason took a half day of vacation and we have made it to the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, area just as … Continue reading And They’re Off!!!
Like Punxsutawney Phil, our truck seems to retreat back to the dealer every time it sees it shadow! Continue reading Ground Hog Day
Well, we are already not making our schedule as our truck sits warm and snug out of the winter weather in the dealer’s garage torn apart. A week ago this started with a clunk from underneath and flashing lights on the dash. We were blessed in that the whole incident unfolded near a home of a fellow church family. Our Good Sam Club RV Roadside … Continue reading Off Like a Herd of Turtles
We failed to meet our goal of being south of the snow line this year! October 27th and in River Falls, Wisconsin, there is measurable snow on the ground and it is getting deeper. The RV is doing well with the mild temperatures in the mid and lower 30’s. Our electric heat works fine most of the time but the LP gas furnace occasionally kicks … Continue reading Failure!
Jason returned to the physical office past week and in just a few weeks we will be headed out again. We have landed into Hoffman Park in River Falls, Wisconsin, for at least until October 15. We hope to be here, if the park doesn’t close early, until November 1 and then make our journey South. We have lots to do yet in the RV … Continue reading Fall Seems to be Coming
September 30, 2017 In Michigan there are about 27 billion trees and it seems like we have seen every single one of them this week! After a while they begin to look the same, even though we purposefully tried to avoid the same route back across the U.P. so we would not see the same trees twice. The cats are really adapting to the travel … Continue reading Are You Sure We Didn’t See That Tree Before?
