Just a quick post to update everybody on our location. On the 15th of February, we said good-bye to the Rio Grande Valley and travelled about 175 miles north along the coast to Port Aransas, a barrier island of the coast of Corpus Christie.
We’d been here about a month, sitting in one place, not moving at all, when one morning we noticed a line in the center of the windshield. Tom thought it was a drip of water, but after looking closer, we realized that it was a crack . . . and we had no idea where it came from!
(Dec. 7, 2018) — Thanksgiving dinner had been so delicious, I decided we would have another one ourselves.
(Nov. 30, 2018) — Black Friday – the rest of the world may have been out Christmas shopping, but we were making our way across Kentucky on the Cumberland Parkway (nice drive!),
(Nov. 12, 2018) — On Facebook last week, I saw a post about an “All Things Detroit” market day at Eastern Market that was happening on Sunday. It sounded interesting, and having lived almost my entire adult life in the Detroit area, I’ve never been to Eastern Market . . . so we decided to go.
(Oct. 24, 2018) — We’ve known about RV Care-A-Vanners through other fulltime RVers that we know, and we’ve been involved in Habitat for Humanity builds through our Community Service projects at Ford, but we had not yet participated in a build with RV Care-A-Vanners.
(Oct. 16, 2018) — After a week of rainy, chilly days, we finally had a stretch of very pleasant, even warm & humid, fall days. We enjoyed the sunshine, got Casey outside for lots of walks, and even had a campfire with our neighbors one evening.
(Oct. 12, 2018) — We’re here for two weeks to participate in an RV Care-A-Vanners Habitat build (more on that later). It seems to be the rainy season here in Petoskey, but we’ve had a few days here and there when we could get out.
(Oct. 5, 2018) — The are plenty of reasons that bring people to northwest Michigan — pristine beaches, towering mountains of sand, restaurants, shopping, hiking and biking.
(Sept. 28, 2018) — The first few days of our mini-vacation were spent back at one of our favorite spots in our home state – Silver Lake Sand Dunes. We spent the summer of 2016 at Silver Creek RV Resort, and although the park was recently sold to Sun RV, not too much as changed yet.
(Aug. 29, 2018) — Remember a couple of months ago when we were faced with crossing this one lane bridge to get into a campground along the Laurel River in Virginia? We made it across the bridge ok going into the campground, but leaving was another story!
(Aug. 6, 2018) — After checking the Pony Swim off our bucket list, it was time to pack up and head west, leaving the Atlantic Ocean behind for a while.
(Aug. 3, 2018) — So, besides getting some of the best saltwater taffy ever, our reason for spending a couple days in Ocean City on our way out of the Delmarva Peninsula was so that we could head down to the 93rd Annual Chincoteague Pony Swim.
(July 27, 2018) — A little bit of history – prior to the construction of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, there was a ferry service between Virginia Beach and Cape Charles, and the ferry landing site on the Eastern Shore side was on the site of Kiptopeke State Park.
(July 18, 2018) — Nicolas has been living in his camper for the last 10 months, but he hadn’t taken it anywhere, so he was hoping to get some time off later this summer for a vacation. When it started looking like that wasn’t going to be possible with his work schedule, he decided that a mini vacation close to home was better than nothing.
(June 1, 2018) — Our 2nd excursion of Nicolas’ Special Liberty Days involved a drive back almost 300 years to the 18th century when our nation was not yet a nation, but just a group of English colonies.
(May 22, 2018) — In addition to the off-road adventure, the area is home to wild horses, which are always cool to see wandering on the beach.
(May 1, 2018) — We had been waiting for a monthly site to open up at the campground where Nicolas lives, and while we were in Charlottesville, we got the call that one was available. We had paid for a week there, so we planned our move for last Thursday.

(April 25, 2018) — We woke to sunny skies on Tuesday, and even though it was chilly in the morning, it was a much more promising day for travel than Monday had been!
