2014 Summer Adventure Begins

I have had a few people ask when I was going to get back to doing our blog so I shall begin. I hope that there is enough interesting activities to keep your interest. At some point I will add in pictures from our 2013 trip to Trinity in northern California. As always, clicking on the pictures will give a larger view.

We ended April and started May by working at the Spring Samboree in Okeechobee. Our friend and wagon master for Yankee RV Tours asked us to fill in for him at his table and present the seminars for the tours and rallies that he offers. He was on a tour during this time slot. The Samboree date had been changed after he had made arrangements. It was a fun and learning experience. We met many of our RVing friends and made some new ones.


Our trip to Ashtabula took 3 nights as we made a side trip to the Tampa/St Pete area the first day. It was a nice ride up with decent travel weather and no major incidents.

We parked in Lou’s sister Barbara’s driveway for three or four nights while we made contact with long time friends. (I was told that I should not call them ‘Old Friends”. Smile) We visited my sister and has a nice meal with her, Danny and Karen. She lives in some quite posh digs now. I was able to spend some quality time with my grandson Dre’ as I helped him get his learner’s drivers permit. We spent time driving and practicing the maneuverability test. Lou and Barbara did the usual shopping trip$$.

On Thursday we head to Northeast Pennsylvania to begin to get ready for the wedding. There were almost endless grape vineyards. Of course. Lake Erie was in view from the high back roads that we took.


The campground was unique in many ways. I was alone in the coach when I first arrived. (Lou had dropped off with the Honda to go with Denise for manicure and pedicure.) I notice that what from behind looked like a Newfoundland dog. Well it wasn’t! It was a miniature pony! It had free roam of the campground. I did not see anyone following it to clean up after it as they require us to do with Tanzy.


However the best was yet to come as I was visited shortly by a very large Potbelly Pig! It must have weighed 200 pounds, at least. There was yet more free roam animals as two goats grazed on the grass by our rig. Tanzy went wild as you might imagine. Before we left on Sunday we discovered a small flock of turkeys and six donkeys in a penned area not far from us. Their vocalizations were very easy to identify.


  1. Hey guys, Looks like you are having a great season of travel and adventure. We, on the other hand, have begun a different season of life since the death of our daughter-in-law. Staying with our son and 6 yr. old granddaughter in Canton GA and returning home every 2-3 weeks to keep up the house. Don't know what the future holds but feel this is our calling for now. I will enjoy escaping with your blog and I know how much work it is.Keep it up when you have time but don't let it control you. Enjoy the present. Clara

  2. Looks like a good time. Be safe and God bless you!
