FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY
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?

Some towns and cities we have passed through have been charming and quaint. Two that come directly to mind, Saluda, NC and Ferdandina Beach, FL.

But then there are other towns that come across our paths like Folkston that just make us scratch our heads.

We stumbled acros...

...no, I'm not talking about taking your hard earned money and investing  it in something like a automotive rims store..

I'm talking about going hiking..

Nothing truly unusual about that decision. Within a short drive from our camp ground is the Ralph E. Simmons National...

Although I have a plethora of reasons to give thanks this and every Thanksgiving, I was especially grateful to those with whom I was able to spend this holiday: My wife, my daughter, brother- and sister-in law Mark, and Marlene, their daughter Jenna and her finance Kar...

We have met all sorts of really interesting people at the parks at which we have stayed. People from as far north as Canada and as far west as Oregon. But we never expected to find travelers  from our own (tiny) home state.

My Ram 2500, unhitched average...

Lorraine and I arrived today at Kelly's Countryside RV park in Callahan, FL. What the advertisements don't tell you is that when they say "Countryside"... they mean "far from civilization"! On the road, we've found that you don't measure things in miles, but how close...

One of the most unique and interesting experiences we have encountered on this trip was riding in a Cotton-Picker. An old friend from our Ohio days, Cheri Griner, lives not far from where we are staying. Her husband Jimmy is a man of the soil. Farming has been in his f...

The great thing about traveling is that every day is unique.

No matter how similar their beginnings, each one (s)tumbles along its own divergent path. Our new friends, Pete and Amber, told us about a food truck festival at the Old Sheldon Church in Beaufort, SC. It is t...
