Aug 10, 2020 - Cops think we're human traffickers

Fun title, right? It was a fun day. So today is Monday, the day we left our campsite, and Zac and I thought this deserved its own post. Today we got all our stuff packed up at the campsite with a plan to do some shopping, then go to Aaron's hotel and hang out with him when he got off work. Our first stop was a motorcycle shop to get Zac new gloves, since his had developed holes. The shop didn't have what he needed unfortunately, it wasn't the right kind of shop. So then we went to Walmart. Both of us are always nervous leaving the pets in...

Aug 10, 2020 - Seeing Aaron in Ohio, visiting the zoo

In the last post we were in Kentucky staying at a beautiful spot along a lake, checking out corvettes. We were supposed to go see the Mammoth caves, but unfortunately they were all sold out, so we just drove straight to Aaron's hotel. All the animals have been adjusting to traveling very well, and as time goes on we continue to lighten our load or think of changes that we'll do once we're home. We have a lot in mind to change up. The hotel was nice, and Aaron had a few days off while the van was being worked on! He has this cool ass plague...

Jul 22, 2019 - Day 10

Today is going to be a big travel day, so only 1 site is planned. We plan to visit the Rutherford B. Hayes Library and Museum. One last day at the Garden Inn breakfast buffet, so my last omelet. We had breakfast, finished packing, checked out and were on the road by about 10:30. One major difference today. The temperature this morning was 66 degrees. We met a couple from south Brunswick checking out of the hotel at the same time. They said they didn't bring long pants and sweatshirts because they thought it was going to be hot all week. We...

Aug 8, 2018 - Columbus, OH

Wed, 08 Aug: Heading east... After a week in Elkhart Indiana, today we relocated to Columbus Ohio. This wasn't originally in our plans, but what with our fridge "woes" we've reverted to Plans "B" thru "Q" (or thereabouts) so what's with plans now? Anyway, since we were "in the area" Bob wanted to attend the big StampShow being held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Well, our house has wheels and we really don't have any "hard dates" till early October so we got things ready for the road and Bob rolled wheels around 0930. From the...

Oct 25, 2017 - Columbus , OH Oct 10-13, 2017

The reason we added this location to our itinerary was to take a Santa Fe friend to dinner. Josh is a first year seminarian at Trinity Lutheran Seminary. I have known Josh since his birth, about 30 yrs. He was one of the kids who stayed in church after his confirmation. Since he is on a new journey and we were going to be close by we did want to treat a poor student to dinner. We did have a great meal at a downtown Italian restaurant that he wanted to try. The food was good but the visit with Josh was THE BEST. While in Columbus we took a...

Jun 12, 2017 - Columbus, OH.

On our way to Ashtabula, Ohio and made a stop in Columbus. Didn't do much. Took a ride past the house Diana grew up in and past her old high school. We had dinner with Diana's brother and his wife Helen. Don't get to see them too often. Ava got to swim between rain storms. It's hot and humid.

May 2, 2017 - Buckeye Lake

Another good day! The rain returned during the night but stopped by early morning. Cooler temperatures returned and it was only 49 this morning. Sharon's purchase, before we left Florida, of a small electric heater at Camping World has turned out to be a good idea as it works great to keep the RV warm when temperatures drop. Dick and Lena Bowman picked us up at 11:00 for a tour around the lake and then to have lunch. Dick was the head basketball coach at Florida Tech from 1966 - 1969. We reconnected in March when they were wintering in...

May 1, 2017 - On the road again !

After a great visit with Terry and Sandy, we packed up and headed out this morning about 9:30. It rained all night but finally stopped before we left. Terry measured 3" of rain over the past few days. Sunday we went shopping at Meijers to re-supply the RV. I was amazed that a gallon of milk sold for only $1.29! That's about 1/3 what we pay in Florida!. We also picked up some great filets and cooked out for dinner. We stopped at the Cracker Barrel on the east side of Columbus today and met Barb and Larry Cassell for lunch. Barb and Larry...

Jul 15, 2016 - Columbus, OH.

Can't visit Columbus without a stop at White Castle. It was a quick lunch stop. Our original plan was to visit Columbus the end of August for Diana's Class reunion. We have since changed our plans and are actually heading to Minnesota to visit Larry's family. So we spent a couple days here to visit Diana's brother and friend she grew up with. Fred {Diana's brother}had a heart attack and surgery the end of last year. It was good to see he is doing better. He is back to work and seems to be his 'old' self. We had a yummy dinner at The 101...

Jun 6, 2016 - In Paris

Working on the 1.5 hours drive from the airport to downtown Paris. Not much different from US yet. Jet lag not to bad. The difficult thing is finding a place to eat with kids. Not much kids around and most restaurants don't have a kids friendly menu (plus the price). Also bathrooms are challenge to find at times. People have been nice so far.

Apr 9, 2016 - Columbus OH; 27/0

160408 - Fri – 58,853 > We got home today. We drove from Athens TN. Only got some thing unpacked, like the scooter and the bike, in case it rained, which it didn't. Unremarkable. It looks like we went 431 miles. So the total was 1208 miles back from FL. This will be my last entry on my trip journal as we are home.
