A Travel Day: Sand Dunes, Time Zones and Margaritas

Looking for Deep Fried Butter in Skowhegan, Maine

Have you ever had deep dried butter? How about chicken fried bacon? If not I imagine you haven’t been to a State Fair lately. There seems to be a philosophy at these fairs that says if you can eat it,

Close Encounters of the Bear-able kind

New Hampshire has lots of wildlife. Most of the time they keep to themselves, hiding in the woods. If you get out early, or late at night you might run into them. Literally. Moose, in particular, can be found just

Parry Sound, a Comedy of Errors

Leaving Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario with a restocked supply of vodka, we headed for Parry Sound. We would need that vodka.  Our drive took us along the North Channel of Lake Huron then South along the Georgian Bay on highway

Think Florida and Disney World or the beaches of Tampa and Miami may come to mind. But do you think of Mermaids? Live ones, swimming underwater for your entertainment pleasure? Florida has more than 160 state parks. Many are in

The Summit

Panic on Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

Are you afraid of heights?  I’m not, but I may have mentioned that Hubby is. I rearrange our RV road travel so as not to encounter switchbacks, drop offs or steep inclines. So what was I thinking when I talked

Trash Talk

Every time we leave our campground we pass a house that intrigues me. A small blue clapboard with a screened porch and a detached garage. It sits on a few acres, a nondescript place, nicely kept and typical of many homes

Road Oddities

Traveling the back roads in the RV we have seen some odd sights. There’s no accounting for peoples taste when it comes to  how they dress, or the color they paint their home, or the items they choose to “decorate”

GPS – Globally Positioned Somewhere?

There are two things you need to know about driving a motorhome towing a car, it can’t stop quickly and it can’t make a U or K-turn. This always creates some interesting (read that tense) moments in the cockpit when
