... and Retirement Begins!!

Linda Matthews, Penny Schuck and Roxy travel blog
Welcome to our first, of what we hope to be many, retirement trips!!
On July 26th Penny finally retired and Linda took her second stab at it:-) In celebration of our freedom, we are about to embark on a 3 month wander through the Northeast to see some family and friends; to attend several reunions (Schuck family in Philadelphia, Girl Scout Roundups in Vermont and Camp Glengarra Staff in Utica, NY area); try and track down records, gravestones and homesites of many of our ancestors; and just enjoy the trees, mountains and lakes we both miss!! Our goal is to leave Palm Bay, Florida on Saturday - August 4th, with plans to return by November 6th, so we can VOTE!!

As we began the plans for this trip, it was our intent to be basically footloose and reservation free!! Well, life and plans have gotten away from us, and in order to see all we want to see, make it to our scheduled reunions, and work around "open hours" of historical centers, the trip has developed a fairly significant structure to it. Oh well ... it is still an adventure ... we are "on our own time ... and no time clocks to punch!

You have been invited to join us on this journey via this Trip Journal. Go to Itinerary and you will see an overview of where we plan to be throughout the next few months. We will try to keep you posted as to our locations, our adventures, our findings, our treasures, etc. using the Dated Entries and Map Tracker below. If you click on the "date" you should find our comments and pictures for that entry. If you have "accepted" our invitation, each time we "add" an entry, you will get an email notice. (Won't you get tired of seeing our email address!?!) You are also welcome to add your own comments by going to Leave a Message and then we can put your comments in the Guestbook.

So, let's take a "road trip" ...
