This is the story of our cross-country trip & the interesting people and places we encounter. 
I mean, the two of us.. driving a BIG ol' truck.. pulling a monstrous RV.. 
What could possibly go wrong?

After leaving the Hoosier State we decided to visit the last of the Great Lake states: Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.  

Our first stop was Illinois. We discovered that this is a state with not much to see, but a lot to talk about. In fact, if you could carve...

So I thought I'd use this down time during Lorraine's recovery from surgery (and the quarantine) to catch up on my travel journaling. I have fallen woefully behind. Shame on me. This blog is longer than usual but that is because there are so many pictures. And even tho...

Well, it was probably only a matter of time..

After visiting 36 states and hiking hundreds of trails of various terrain and difficulty, on Friday, February 28th, while on an easy hike, Lorraine tripped and broke her ankle. And she didn't just break one bone, it was the...

Okay, so it wasn't really that bad, but everybody had talked with such glowing reverence for the Upper Peninsula,  otherwise known as the "U - P", that I expected so much more..

The Upper Peninsula is the northernmost part of the the state of Michigan.

It borders three...

Like the lyrics to the popular song state: we spent our summertime in northern Michigan.  This is the second of four blog posts describing amazing time in the Great Lakes State. Today, I want to tell you about our time in the Mackinaw City area; the uppermost point of...

If you read my last post, you might think the title of this blog refers to the roads we encountered in Michigan. While driving on those roads was indeed torturous, I am referring to the fact that Michigan actually has a town known for fire and brimstone.
