Taking my first snow-less winter vacation with my arthritis leading the way... Can't you hear my joint crying, "Warmth! Warmth! We want warth you old bitty!" So I'm taking a week to drive down from the Great North, staying at truck stops along the way (hey, don't knock it... theses are my sisters and bro's with bigger wheels!) Plus I got the dog with me!

So lets see what I find on my way down and eventually my way back (it better be muddy when I get back, no white stuff)...

See you on the road...

I have officailly seen PALM TREES.... so cool. By the way it was 70 today and I got a little sun to my cheaks! Spent the night at South of the Border truck stop... must say that was interesting.

Tonight, I'm spending quality time with an old fashion pencil and paper with my trusty old reliable road atlas... of couse it's the trucker version as I need to get my fill of diesel fumes while on this jouney. I'm doing this the economical way.... staying at truck stops, showers will cost about $5... still cheaper than a hotel! Call me crazy, but I can just pull over and sleep away... don't worry I will have my trusted woofer security system with me (aka the dog).... Got my list of truck stops along the way as I don't trust my GPS apps after the VT ... read more
