We enjoyed our first big road trip so much we were anxious to do another. We've wanted to see fall color again and we've always wanted to see Savannah, Charleston, and Asheville so that's the trip we planned. Once again we planned the trip eight nights and nine days and cover about 2,800 miles. And once again I rented a car because it made sense to save the wear and tear on our own car which would depreciate it more than the cost of the rental. We departed October 21. Our first stop was New Orleans. A silver lining to the pandemic is that it has made hotel prices more affordable so we stayed right in the middle of the French Quarter at Place d'Armes which I would describe as a boutique hotel. It has quaint, ... read more

Travel preparations are in full swing. Of course, since I've not done any travel that I blogged about, now I'm testing myself to see if I can remember how everything works. Not off to the best start. Then again, maybe not so bad. Some research of the problems I was having has finally gotten the posts to line up with the new trip. There also seems to be better operation on the iPad rather than the desktop too. Hopefully, when I send this everyone will have no problem receiving. I’m still terrible at typing and really need to proofread before I send.... read more

Today Nicholas turns 12. We were with him last year in Poland for his 11th birthday the same day that Elliot was born. He turns 1 today and is nearly walking. Nicholas chose a Japanese Hibachi restaurant for dinner which was very entertaining. A chef cooks the food in front of you including a mountain of rice, which Nicholas loves. Prior to dinner we met Aidan out at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum not far from the city. The boys were at a holiday camp there where active marines take them for, among other things, physical exercises. On show was the 5000th B17 bomber. It looked shiny and new so I don’t think it was used. A couple of days earlier Kim took us all out to Old Fort Jackson closer to the mouth of ... read more

Everyone said what a beautiful city Savannah is and they were right. Twelve squares, each named after early citizens, dominate as you cross the grid of streets which is the layout of the old part of the city. Around another square you go, right, left, left and right again back onto the street you were driving up, until the next square. The Live Oak is the dominant tree hung with drooping Spanish moss. Live Oak because it is evergreen. The leaves don’t look anything like the deciduous tree’s leaves but they grow just as big. The Spanish moss isn’t moss at all but an epiphytic air plant. We were warned not to touch it as it is full of microscopic biting red bugs. Apparently this is the origin of the term ‘don’t let the bed bugs ... read more

Blog 01-19-19 Savannah, GA I left home Wed 1-17 about 9:15 am which is a new record for me. Headed west on 80 then south on 81 to Winchester, VA. The countryside was beautiful in VA, full of rolling hills and what looked like gentleman horse farms. Yes, I could live here. Finally hooking up with 95 I arrived in my campground in Fredericksburg, VA only to realize I hadn't left the snow behind. They had a storm on Saturday and although it was off the roads, it was still piled up here and there and in the woods. It resulted in a cold breeze from the ground making for very unpleasant walks. We spent a cool night with temps around 55 inside and 28 outside. I was very snug in my bed but I had ... read more

Today I awoke to NJ turning on her music and saying “Rally Aly oxon free!! Time to wake up!” to which I replied by playfully throwing my pillow at her and sighing “fine.” I changed into my build clothes and was grateful that for the first time in 7 days I didn’t have to pack up my sleeping bag & thermarest. We scavenged for food for breakfast and I ended up eating some of the left over chicken salad with Kristi and what I believe was decaf coffee. We split up by odd and even numbers so the evens went to go roof and us odd ducks got carted off to go help paint a house. We were working with the City of Savannah housing department and arrived to find no construction manager. We spoke with ... read more

This morning I again awoke in the middle of the night freaking out that I slept through an alarm/didn’t have one set. When it eventually did go off at 5am, it was too soon and I was still so exhausted. Tempted to snooze but knowing I had trailer packing duties, I forced myself to get up and pack up my freshly washed clothes before heading out to help pack the trailer while getting eaten by mosquitoes. Breakfast was again bagels, fruit, & coffee. Ryan, Kristie, Jana, & I met briefly since we were on van duties for the day. We helped him come up with silly nicknames and finished cleaning up the host. At route meeting, Jess presented town facts by singing “Savannanana” to the tune of “Havana” and it was so cute!

Thought it might be time to take this up again, sooooooo here I am overnight in Savannah. Planned this trip in January. Since my favorite grandson is graduating on his birthday, it was inevitable I would be heading north. Decided after all the trips I made that this one would be slightly different. Instead of pushing myself as far as I could each day, I would divide it into three days. Was kind of worried after this weekend’s subtropical storm because the weather channel predicted the storm would follow me all the way. Thank goodness they were very wrong. Day was overcast, but no rain. Went to the Crab Shack on Tybee Island for dinner and treated myself to dungness crab. Really neat restaurant with an alligator lagoon out front. No big gators though, longest was ... read more
