December 2019 – San Antonio, Texas

January 21, 2020 (by Angela) Jim and I left our lovely camp host campground in Vienna, IL on Thanksgiving Day. By December 2nd, we’d arrived into the campground in which we’d spend the month of December. What a wonderful change in weather! Temperatures mostly ran in the upper 60s to upper 70s, and usually the…

A Month in Southern Illinois

May 27, 2018 (by Angela) Jim, Chewie, and I are six days away from calling it a wrap in Southern Illinois – at least for now. Actually, with Jim on his way tomorrow to the Northeast for work this week, he pretty well has wrapped up his time here. He gets home Friday; we move…

Four Trails in Four Days: Using AllTrails App

May 3, 2017 (by Angela) One of the good things about our roaming lifestyle is that we have the opportunity to hike a variety of trails as we travel. This is often easier done when Jim is between projects. It affords all three of us opportunity for physical exercise, fresh air, and time in nature.…

In Search of Buffalo Lake

April 9, 2017 (by Angela) Jim arrived home from Pennsylvania Thursday night, and as soon as he could get his “paper work” done Friday morning, we moved north to Elizabethtown, Kentucky. You can see the view from our campground site here. After a full day Saturday of yucky business-type things, like doing our taxes, the three of…

The Houses of Madison City

and Other Explorations March 12, 2017 (by Angela) If we’d only known! We found this postcard at the Welcome Center some 24 hours after our arrival. I have no idea about authenticity of the claim or where to find the documentation. Long before seeing this, Jim and I were in awe of the beauty and…

Perfect Hiking Weather In SE Georgia Parks

March 5, 2017 (by Angela) The weather has been fantastic the last three days, at least in my view. After the cold front knocked the temps back down to the more normal range, we’ve enjoyed highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s during the day with low humidity (low humidity is rare here), so it…

Leader of the Pack

February 24, 2017 (by Angela) Jim, Chewie, and I have been learning about and enjoying Florida’s State Parks system during our short sojourn in the Sunshine State.  This past Sunday, Jim said, “Let’s find a place and go for a walk.” Some new friends we’ve met in the campground had the night before shared with…

Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio

July 5, 2016 (By Angela) A couple of months ago, Jim and I were watching something on TV – I can’t remember what now – that highlighted one of our newer National Parks, Cuyahoga Valley in Ohio. When we realized how close we would be to the park, it became a “we should go there”…

Into the Work a Little Fun Must Come

April 30, 2016 (by Angela) Jim’s been working pretty hard, and I stayed quite busy myself the first quarter of the year. The last six weeks has found both of us taking care of business matters and home chores in addition to work and caring for family. It is important to take time for a…
