Jul 30, 2013 - Treasure Isle RV Park

Mostly sunny and near 80 with light wind. Hung out today and just darn well vegged...you would have thought that we were retired? Naw, not yet! This morning we had breakfast and a walk in the park! This afternoon we went out for some essentials and on our return decided that we needed some exercise after all that driving. So, up to the office we went and rented a paddled boat. Now that was a first for the both of us! I have to say that it was a riot! Pip (my Dad) would have loved that we had to peddle our you know what off to get no where...

Jul 29, 2013 - Treasure Isle RV Park

Foggy and 58 this morning. Catch up day. We cleaned RV inside and out along with the truck. Traveling always does a number on everything. We also caught up on laundry and did some catching up on the journal. The journal took a GREAT deal of time as the internet did not want to cooperate at all...what a pain! We had a intermittent showers but for the most part it was mostly sunny. Temperature reached 78 degrees.

Road Trip 2013

Jun 19, 2013 - Erie Canal day

Back to Erie Canal Village this morning, but first a stop at Lock 22 on the way. Ever since we learned the Erie Canal song in elementary school, I've wondered about the Erie Canal and have been excited to actually see it in person! So, here we were, lock 22. Nothing extraordinary about a lock, except we don't have many in California (and I've not done the Panama Canal yet). Picturing how it works looking right at the lock was cool. Originally, if you look at a cross-section, the Canal was built 40 feet wide at the top, 10 at the bottom...

Jun 18, 2013 - Fort Stanwix, Rome, NY

Thought we'd check out the Erie Canal historical village in Rome, NY, today, but they aren't open on Tuesday….we'll be back tomorrow. Instead, we went all the way into downtown Rome and toured Fort Stanwix, a key fort for Indians and settlers alike. It is in a high spot between two rivers where boats and goods always had to be carried from one river to the other. The local tribes called it "the Carrying Place." Had a good tour with some questions answered by period costumed docents. We are reluctant history tourists, but are learning quite...

Jun 17, 2013 - Off to the next adventure!

A morning to be packed up and movin' on by 10AM, per the Rally rules. We were up earlier than anticipated because Mom and Dad found another water leak from rain that, again, pounded down on us overnight. This time, however, it was just a ceiling vent that had been left open. We did not anticipate rain or the amazing lightning and thunder show that started sometime in the middle of the night, but I woke up and enjoyed listening and watching for the light show. Wish I'd realized then that the vents were open! It was a short drive on the...

Sep 2, 2011 - OTRA - NY - Blossvale

9/2/11 Oh, the truck is feeling so much better since he got 2 new batteries yesterday morning! Perked right up and was ready for the next leg of our journey...to Blossvale, New York where we’ll stay while visiting Betsy and Will at their camp. The drive was easy along I-90, then SR 13 and finally SR 49…a grand total of 60 miles and 1:10 driving time. We’re staying at the Mayfair Campground, an absolutely lovely campground with HUGE level sites and right on Fish Creek. After we got set up, off we went, backtracking our steps about 10 miles...
