Sep 24, 2010 - Visiting upstate New York

Greetings, As we were traveling to Finger Lakes, NY we ran into Louise & Ann traveling in the opposite direction. Louise is our friend that caravanned through Mexico with us this past winter. She had returned home to Wisconsin and we had not seen her since March. What are the odds we would be traveling on the same road precisely at the same time. We had a nice little visit over lunch in Cooperstown. We spent a day in Cooperstown browsing through the Baseball Hall of Fame. The museum covers over 150 years of baseball history. There are...

Aug 21, 2010 - Made it to Iowa

We started the day with rain but it cleared and we had a great day. The traffic was heavy around Chicago and it slowed us down a bit. The cars were weaving in and out of 4 lanes of traffic. We crossed the Mississippi right before we stopped for the night in Iowa.

May 18, 2007 - When in Rome...

We left Kim's Tuesday morning and started working our way to Detroit where John has a meeting on Monday. We decided to stop that afternoon in Vernon and camp at Turning Stone. We had camped here last year and remembered it as being a nice campground; we also remembered that the casino down the street was nice too! But we got sidetracked...or at least I did. I had been experiencing some chest pain for a few days and John decided that since we were headed for Canada I had better get things checked out. After visiting a local doctor we took...

North to Alaska

Jul 1, 2006 - Seneca Falls, NY- Women's rights!

We stayed at a sweet little campground, Oak Orchard Campground and marina, outside of Seneca Falls, NY. There was a lake and swimming pool and kids to play with. Shawna befriended a nice girl, Jessie, at the campsite next to ours. Jessie was so excited about us being from Alaska, she had all kinds of questions. Shawna was thrilled with the fact that Jessie had her own cell phone. When we left the campground, we found a farm stand which we stopped and picked up all kinds of wonderful, fresh fruits and vegetables. The strawberries were...

Stopped at a nice campground called Cheerful Valley to break up the drive from Newburgh to St. Catharines. The first all grass campground we had seen on the trip and the grass was indeed very full and green for this time of year.

Oct 6, 2004 - Rochester NY

DAY 2 (Thu 7th Oct) Woke early in my large bedroom in the basement. Why don't British houses have basements? They are so useful, in this case divided into a bedroom, store-rooms and the laundry room, all of good size. The principle is of a small excavation, say about 4-5 feet down, and then the ground floor of the house is raised enough to give the headroom below. This put the kitchen about 3 or 4 feet above the lawn, which gave an excellent viewpoint of the birds. Just over breakfast I saw species new to me, although common garden birds...
