Hello to all our friends, We have been in Orlando for 6nights,Kevin and Ray went to Kennedy space centre for the day,whilst Glenys and I played Ladies and spent the time at the pool and walking around. Another day we went to Disney Springs it was a lot of fun,and at night we watched fireworks from Disney. The Accomodation here is superb,we are being really spoilt. And of course we went to Walmart which is our second home!! Did the outlets but didn’t buy anything!!!

I took a night off from blogging last night so tonight brings me about 625 miles from the last update. The run from Charleston to Jacksonville started out like most days last week. Threats of rain but nothing until that is...I hit the intersection of Hwy 17 and I-95, then I got dumped on. I was just about to pull off and make a change in helmets and perhaps put some rain gear on when it subsided. I decided to stick it out.... big mistake right at the South Carolina -Georgia border I hit a torrential down pour. I had to stop in the middle of the down pour and change helmets before I crossed the Georgia border. Side bar: I carry three helmets with me on my trips: #1-Top helmet which keeps the sun off ... read more

“Always let your conscience be your guide.” ~ Pinocchio. Well gotta say we're living the life of Riley here at our villa to the point old Riley is jealous. :) The pool with the waterfalls is heaven - it's so nice to float the day away in 100F temps since spring at home didn't get the memo it should've arrived by now. :( Although we've not had a lot of pool time since we've been on the go.... read more

"Motherhood. The days are long but the years are short." We are switching it up here - we're not in the land of margaritas & palm trees... Well we're in the land of palm trees, but more Mickey Mouse than margaritas. We're in Orlando and I'm back to see my boyfriend Mickey Mouse. He seems to be aging quite well despite being 90 years old (must be all that botox he gets!) How Al & I found ourselves with our oldest daughter finishing her 2nd year of university, our 2nd second daughter graduating high school & heading to university & our youngest gal heading to high school baffles me. Were Al & I sleepwalking through life? How did our girls grow up so dang fast? It feels like somebody broke into our lives and stole time. ... read more

We started out on adventure 2019 on May 10 leaving from home (Titusville) Fl and heading to Holiday RV Park in Panacea Fl. We had the rig checked out at Cummins Orlando the week before, had a full Preventative Maintenance performed and told them some issues we were experiencing. They gave us a clean bill of health and ready to roll. Not so fast. About 230 miles into our trip, there was a loud crashing noise like something fell our of our engine, and something did. Thank goodness for roadside assistance through FMCA. The grear box to the fan assembly and clutch broke off, causing much damage and we needed a tow. Jimmy's Towing came out with a tow truck which was small to tow our rig. When I called in I told them the weight ... read more

Day 7 Blog – May 19, 2019 – Tallahassee, FL thru Pensacola to Atmore, AL– 339 miles This was Pam and Tim’s 35th wedding anniversary and was strange for her to be without her husband, but we all tried to make it a special day for her. She sent him loving reminders from several of the beaches. With it our last day on the Florida coast, our mission was to have as much fun as possible. As Pam was driving us south from Tallahassee down to the beaches, we soon spied 2 giant chickens beside the road. A quick zip into the parking lot and soon Pam was up on top of one. We were getting this day off to a good start. Not long thereafter, we spotted a giant chair and, of course, we made ... read more

We left the hotel and went to go see the football stadium for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers really wanting to see the pirate ship we knew was inside. Did we get to see any of it? Well, after driving around the stadium multiple times, we never found any access to even a parking lot to get us anywhere closer than the roads and only managed to catch a glimpse of the tops of the masts on the ship from one angle. Man, we wanted to see that pirate ship in person. That was a disappointment. With not anything else around the area that we didn’t visit last night, we set Google Maps and started heading north. Some unusual things we passed along the way were the city of Land O’Lakes, a gas station with “out of ... read more

Day 5 Blog – May 17, 2019 – Naples to St. Petersburg, FL – 239 miles After yesterday’s rainy weather, the bright, sunny morning got us ready to start our day of beachy adventures. Before we left the hotel, Susan and Claire sent Pam to go get something from the van as they were packing the cold stuff. Well, no one realized until Pam was out there and didn’t come back that she was locked out of the hotel and didn’t have her phone. You see, unless the hotel gives us 3 room keys (which isn’t often), Claire and Susan are the key holders and they don’t share with Pam (it’s an older sisters power thing). Well, needless to say, Pam got some extra steps she wasn’t planning having to walk all the way around the ... read more
