Today we leave McKinney Campground headed to Alaska. Making the trip are Aleta and myself, Jack and Barbara, along with Ted and Jeri. Had plans to meet up early and caravan to St. Marion, IL, but plans have ways of changing. Met up with Ted and Jeri at rest area at exit 158 on I24. We all met at Flying J at exit 86 and gassed up. Campgrounds at St Marion all full. Tried Walmart, but it is blocked for RVs and trucks. Found sites at Old Bates RV Park 33 miles back. Made that trip to our sites - - $27.00 per night. Thank you Lord. Had smoked ribs and chicken prepared by Shelby for our first night on the road, along with baked beans and rolls prepared by Jeri, and potato salad prepared by ... read more

5/1/2012 - Murfreesboro, TN to Acworth, GA. Got up early this morning, around 6am. Slept hard, but a little hot at Wal-Marts. Shelby's back so bad this am had to take some Tylenol, not a good sign. Ready to get home and rest a little. Had the motorhome washed at Exit 318 on I75. Like stop here for washes as it is just north of home and they usually do a good job. The two guys that washed this time did a very thorough job. Cost was $51.00. The "redneck Mexican" did good again. If you stop here, just ask for the "redneck Mexican" tell him Taylor sent you :-). We are now in Bartow County, we feel we are home when we cross that line....getting back home on Tyler Taylor's (grandson) birthday. OK, WE ARE ... read more

As we make our last minute preparations to depart on our first extended travel adventure, reality kicks in, we will not make our 10:00 A.M. departure. After getting all of the last minute items (that we think we could ever need) we depart Acworth, Ga. about 4 hrs. later than planned. We are supposed to meet Leta and Shelby, who have been in Louisiana for family reunions, in Olive Branch, Ms. for dinner. Oh well! Late dinner is better than no dinner. Overnight at Flying J, Olive Branch, Ms.... read more

Ok, today we headed out!!! Got to Villa Rica, GA and left front caliper heated up. Kept watch of it when on I20, about 10 miles down the interstate, the tire pressure monitor screamed. Yep, left front tire going flat. Pulled into the Love's Truck Stop Tire Center. The heat had caused the tire pressure sensor to fail. Richard, at the tire center; aired the tire up and checked to ensure it was holding air. We continued to Knox Hill, AL where we met up with Charles and Diane who will be with us through our stay in Vidalia, La. The park at Knox Hill had really gone down since our last stay there and the price did not match the facilities. Will not stay there again.... read more
