Travel Day: La Marque, TX To Texarkana, TX

We had planned to pull out at 9:00 this morning but I wasn’t moving too quickly so we didn’t end up leaving until 9:15…still not too bad.  We had a typical travel day breakfast – bacon and egg breakfast sandwich with fruit before finishing our move day chores. Our route was pretty straight forward…North on … Continue reading »

RV Show & An Ice Cream Social

Yesterday we took the 22 mile drive into Hershey to the RV show so that we could do a little walking around to see what’s out there.  We saw a few coaches that we liked and might consider if we were in the market for a new coach but nothing that really stood out over … Continue reading »

New Dial, Happy Anniversary & German Fare

So here’s the lowdown for the past few days: Wednesday Michael needed to caulk around the basement doors since they were removed for the basement remodel.  He got that done fairly easy and even had a 19 month old helper to assist for part of the time.  While he was at it he also caulked … Continue reading »

The Project Continues & The Granddaughter Pees!

Today was another fairly easy day (I think from here on out they will be).  Michael’s biggest project was placing the black diamond plate flooring into the basement.  He cut it to size, cut holes for the plumbing and UDC and then glued it into place and stapled around the edges. So the basement floor … Continue reading »

Cupcakes & Trains!

Clip clop, clip clop, clip clop….I’ve come to love that sound.  It means that there is an Amish buggy traveling down the street near the coach.  The Amish ‘traffic’ is so heavy here that it’s a very common occurrence.  The Amish come into Goshen to do their shopping, dine and any other business needed so … Continue reading »

North American Heartland Rally – Day 3

Had a little bit slower morning than we’ve been having.  About 9:00 am we hooked the coach up to the truck so that one of the service guys could come and take a look at an issue we recently noticed with our front cap.  When when we hook up we are starting to see a … Continue reading »

Our day started early again today as we met the tour bus at 7:45 am and were on the road headed for our Amish Countryside Tour.  We were quite delighted to find that we had the same bus driver, Randy, as we did yesterday.  Today’s tour was so popular we had 2 buses full of … Continue reading »

Relieved That We Didn’t Get Blown Away!

The winds that started yesterday afternoon continued today, waking me about several times during the night and for good about 5:00 am this morning.  Laid in bed until about 6:00 when we finally got up for the day.  We were getting gusts at nearly 60 mph which shook the coach pretty darn good.  I expected … Continue reading »
