Jun 20, 2019 - Dover, Delaware-Capital of the First State

After our long stay in Wilmington, I was finally released from my doctor’s care on June 11th and we immediately got back on the road to make up some miles. We left Wilmington with our ultimate destination being the NW portion of Pennsylvania to visit family. We didn’t want to push it so we drove a 150 miles to Virginia Beach, Virginia for the night. We stayed one night on base at the Naval Amphibious Base; nice campground but we wanted to get some miles on under our belts so back on the road the next day. We had a fun adventure driving...

May 5, 2019 - Gander RV 400 postponed until Monday

Gander RV 400 postponed until Monday because of weather ByReid Spencer NASCAR Wire Service May 5, 2019 at 4:11 PM DOVER, Del. — Persistent rain on Sunday foiled NASCAR’s attempts to start the Gander RV 400 at Dover International Speedway, forcing postponement of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race until noon Monday, to be broadcast on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The cars started rolling before 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, but the rain, which had stopped long enough to dry the track, picked up again as the field took pace laps...

Halloween may be the next holiday on the calendar, but Kyle Busch stole Christmas morning from Chase Elliott late on Sunday afternoon at Dover International Speedway. Running Elliott down from more than four seconds back in the last 40 laps of the Apache Warrior 400 at the Monster Mile, Busch powered his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota around the outside of Elliott’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and cleared him off Turn 4 as the cars approached the white flag. A lap later, Busch had his second straight victory in the Monster Energy...

Sep 24, 2017 - Dover Downs Casino (9/14/17)

We are on our way back to Virginia. We spent one night in the parking lot at Dover Downs Casino because Tim wanted to play in a poker tournament. We had a very nice buffet dinner and spent some time in the casino before his poker game started. I was doing very well on the slots. He stopped by and handed me his winnings, not from the slots which took his money, but from the roulette wheel. That was very nice!! I ended up spending about 3-1/2 hours entertaining myself, but finished up losing about $35. That was a lot of fun for me. I went...

Oct 25, 2013 - Dover, DE and Washington, DC

Days 230 - 235 of The Big Trip On October 20, getting a later than normal start (which is really late by most people's standards), we were on the road for our 95-mile-drive to Dover AFB, Delaware. When one drives such short distances, late starts and early finishes are the norm. The Delaware Bay Bridge was the bridge crossing we would use. Car tolls were $4.00, so we were expecting something about $10 or so. No way - our toll was $20 - $5.00 per axle. Something seems really unfair about this. It would have been cheaper to drive the car...

May 13, 2012 - Conquering the Monster Mile

We made a short trip to Dover International Speedway on Saturday so I could realize my Christmas gift from the family and celebrate Mother's Day. Sue and I along with Winnie, Kyle and Shane went to Dover so I could drive 10 laps on the Monster Mile in a NASCAR Sprint Cup car. I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but I do love car racing and this was an awesome experience to get behind the wheel of a 400+HP race car. This was the best Christmas present I've ever gotten. We had lunch at the track before my session. I made pulled pork and slaw. After the...

Oct 20, 2011 - The Capitol, Dover AFB

A very melancholy day - Mom's 100th birthday - Oh how I wish we were going to be with her today, Saturday, or any day for that matter. She is missed! Al, Em, and I spent a good part of the day in Dover visiting the new and old state capitol buildings and then, after a special lunch at a Koren BBQ restaurant, we toured the Air Museum at Dover Air Force Base. The old and new capitol buildings are part of a complex called First State Heritage Park. Old buildings and new, historic and cultural sites, are all shared by state and city agencies....

Aug 31, 2010 - Dover Delaware

When we left Ocean City we drove directly north into Delaware. I didn't remember that Delaware was the first state in America. We toured the original state building and the docent fill us in on a lot of history that I didn't remember. Delaware is lovely and Dover is a nice city that would be fun to spend more time. We crossed back over into Maryland and had to go through Annapolis to get back to Baltimore Freightliner.
