Susie and I became hobos on February 26th 2018. We left our home in Montana on this first leg of our travels February 27th. We headed for Livonia Michigan to visit Susie's mom, family and friends in the area where she spent a good deal of her time before going to Montana. We stopped on the way to visit a couple of high school buddies of mine in Rochester, Minnesota. We have been here in Livonia now for a couple of weeks. High point's include celebrating St. Patrick At the Gaelic League with Susie's mom Dorothy (a.k.a. the Hurricane) during the St. Patrick's parade in Corktown, a neighborhood in Detroit. We also celebrated at O'Malley's on St. Patrick's Day in Livonia. Plenty of shenanigans and no (serious) injuries or arrests! We got to celebrate seven family ... read more

it was a long bus ride that brought me to Detroit (with at least an hour being spent at the US border).

I admit I was absolutely terrified as there was very little ... read more

Geo: 42.3966, -83.3696 We left Niagara Falls in the morning.and drove to the Ambassador Bridge. We crossed over and back to our United States. We then drove to Livonia, my parents and my childhood home. Wednesday thru Friday consisted of doing some house repairs and visiting with my parents and my nephew and his wife, who are also staying with my parents. It was a little crowded, considering that their house is 1,000 sq. ft. with one bathroom. We took a break on Thursday and went to the Henry Ford Museum. They had an exibit on the Civil War that we wanted to see. On Saturday, we went to Northville to visit my sister Dawn and her family. We all went out to dinner to celebrate my moms 84th birthday. The resturant was called Table 5. ... read more
