Rocking Chairs, Graves & Helicopters

Thursday 8/3 I had a couple of some small sight-seeing adventures planned for today and we needed to run a couple of errands so we left the house about 10:30 am. Our first stop was just a short drive from Camp Atterbury, where we’re staying at the FamCamp.  Camp Atterbury was built in 1942 as … Continue reading »

The Wright Brothers, a Newspaper Columnist, a Witch and a Gypsy Queen

Wednesday, June 21st We experienced our first sight-seeing day in Dayton!  While Ohio is known as the ‘Birthplace of Aviation’ it seems to me that Dayton should have that title as this is where Orville and Wilbur Wright did the majority of the planning and designing of their first ‘airplanes’. Our first stop today was … Continue reading »

Roadside America Day….Again!

Quartzsite seems to be a Mecca for many RVers.  Years ago nearly 2 million people (many of them RVers) would flock to Quartzsite for the winter months.  We’ve been told that that number has dwindled to a mere quarter of a million in recent years. There are lots of rock/gem shows and swap meets in … Continue reading »

We drove over to the Waco Mammoth Site only to find that they had some kind of event going on and the place was packed.  That wasn’t … Continue reading »

We left home about 9:30 am and headed due west toward Madison.  First … Continue reading »

Cooling Temps

Thankfully, it’s cooled off enough the last couple of days so that Michael has been able to get outside and continue his work in the basement.  He was able to cut holes in the ‘new’ wall for cable/satellite, electrical outlet, vacuum cleaner receptacles and a heat vent.  So we can once again watch TV outside! … Continue reading »

More Homes, Games & Pasties

We went to two more open houses today.  The first was one that Dan and Amanda had already visited a couple of times and really liked.  A very nice home with great curb appeal…though the neighborhood is a bit old/tired.  It was one of the cheaper homes we’ve seen and a fairly decent commute for … Continue reading »

After finding a parking spot in a … Continue reading »
