November 24th found us finally heading to the southern coast of Georgia. At this point we’d reverted back to longer stays at each stop, all the while trying to avoid the most severe storms. Skidaway Island was a good place to pause so Steve could fly to Tucson, AZ for his quarterly oncology checkup. Happily, the doctor once again gave […]
When we planned this route last year, we thought most of the bad storms occurred in the Spring months. But it turns out that Fall can be equally nasty – as we found out firsthand. Well, now we know!
Continuing with our 2nd anniversary celebration posts, this time we share our top seven biking experiences during the period March 1, 2013 to Feb. 28, 2014. Steve is always happy when he can unload our bikes so we can actually ride them, rather than just haul them around the country. Our qualifications for these rides is the most points for: […]
We have crossed another milestone. Two years ago today, on March 1, 2012, we embarked on our new lifestyle of living on the road. One of our many goals was to continue to exercise and be active. Building on what I began last year, and to commemorate our 2nd year of full timing, I have compiled our new set of favorite […]
One last stop in Georgia, then we’ll be heading into the sunshine state for the winter. For our final exploration in the peach state, we ended up near the Golden Isles of Georgia. On the southern end of Georgia’s scenic coastline is a collection of barrier islands. With their history, natural beauty and huge variety of recreational opportunities, St. Simons […]
We were so looking forward to the next destination, our home base near Savannah, GA. And we were not disappointed as we settled in at Fort McAllister State Historic Park, less than an hour’s drive from the city. The weather forecast for the next few days said cloudy, a little rain and maybe some wind. We hoped for better, but didn’t mind too […]
When you’re hanging out close to nature and wildlife, you are bound to see amazing, amusing and fascinating things that wildlife do naturally. For instance, we’re not sure what these Northern Mockingbirds were doing just before they flew away – maybe some kind of mating dance? Steve tried hopping around in front of me, and I wanted to fly away […]
Have you? We had exactly that unpleasant experience recently. It was late in the afternoon on the day we were under a tornado watch, and the winds were already picking up. We were busy stowing anything that might get blown away, and Steve had the barbecue going to get our chicken cooked (no storm will come between Steve and his trusty Weber!).
We left LaGrange and continued our trek up north to Stone Mountain, GA. This is actually a granite mountain in Georgia, not the city with the same name. When we arrived we were surprised to see not just an ordinary mountain, but a huge dome-like mass of granite. As soon as we settled in at the Stone Mountain Park Campground […]
