Civil War

On our trip northward (April, 2023), we captured some of the military sites. The following is our experience; “Civil War”. Oxymoron if there ever was such a word. There was NOTHING civil about this (or any) war. Given our current political strife, Americans need to reflect long and hard over the last 250 years. Explore … More Civil War

Georgia to Maine

After leaving the tropics of Florida, we were quickly reminded that it is still early spring. As we approached Atlanta, the weather turned cool (cold by Florida standards!) and very wet. With a constant drizzle and heavy traffic on a 12 lane highway, Atlanta is a miserable hub to drive through. Intersates come and go … More Georgia to Maine

Exiting Florida

The last blog ended with “…we left but not without problems…”. And did we have them. My slide was binding up. My trailer was giving me a “wire fault” code. And my water pump was leaking (back flushing) into my fresh storage tank. I have to keep reminding myself that it is a house on … More Exiting Florida

Winter in BICY

♫ “Toes”♫ As you listen to ZBB, you can picture South Florida. No matter if you are at Delnor-Wiggins State Park in Naples, the coconut butter slathered skin on South Beach in Miami, or any place in between in the ‘gator infested waters, life is good. No snow shovels, scrapers, or other snow instruments of … More Winter in BICY

Country Roads

“Jumping Jahosaphine! Quick! Find me a place to pull over!” I screamed as panic struck me. My TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) monitor blasted to life. Not good. I have a trailer tire losing air. Normally at 60 lbs, it was at 40. Quickly deb and I search for a place to pull over. It … More Country Roads

Georgia on my mind

After leaving Florida, the only issues heading to Georgia were gas prices. The good news they are below 4 dollars a gallon! …and going down. After a quick overnight in Live Oak, Florida, we arrived at Skidaway State Park just outside of Savannah. It is a beautiful coastal area crowded with majestic old live oak … More Georgia on my mind

Fort Pickens

We are leaving the “swamp”… but not Florida; at least not yet. Our travels takes us northward up the west coast to a beautiful farming community called Land O’Lakes. Instead of opting for a traditional campground, we are staying at a “Boondockers Welcome” site (an organization that are peer to peer campers). We’ve been here … More Fort Pickens

Beauty abounds

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.” This one sentence can describe our experience in “the land time forgot”. Every morning, every evening, every day, is so different yet so beautiful. On a warm humid morning the sun’s rays pierce through the fog and dense air, glistening off of the palmetto palms … More Beauty abounds

Schitter’$ Full

Life can be funny. No, seriously! Sometimes life imitates film. And as long as everyone can laugh about it afterwards, it’s hilarious. Like the other day, a camper was filling up his tank with water. Or the bank robber who spent the night. How about the night 50 cars showed up! Then there was the … More Schitter’$ Full

Summer Breeze

As I write this rendition of the summer of 2021, I’m reminded of the Seals & Croft song, ♫ ♪ “Summer Breeze”. ♪ ♫ Yes! It was a nice summer. I’m still alive. In Maine, summer nights are short, sun sets around 9 pm and is rising above the horizon long before 5 am. As … More Summer Breeze
