  • Travel requires good planning! When we decide where we’re headed Chuck researches the routes and driving times and plans the fuel and RV park stops.  Critical to our planning is checking what the weather looks li […]

  • When we sold our house and picked up our coach on June 28th, 2014 we didn’t even think about what 1000 days on the road would look like or where we would go. We just did it! Today we have officially been on the r […]

  • Mardi Gras is over and it’s time to hit the road – heading west.
    Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country.
    Washington is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust i […]

  • Oh my gosh – where do I start? How do I even begin to capture the excitement, colours, costumes, people, floats, marching bands, elaborate masks, traffic? Did I mention the people? the traffic?  Welcome to Mardi […]

  • It’s surprising that we’ve been on the road since July 2014 and we only just now make it to Florida.

    Our travel plans did not originally include Florida as we were heading to the Canadian west again – to per […]

  • The beauty of St. Augustine lies in its magnificent preservation and distinct historical character – and has always been high on my ‘go to’ list of ‘very old places’. The beach, lighthouse, historical buildin […]

  • When we 1st revealed our travel plans for 2016 I very naively admitted that we were going to take it slow and easy and stay in places long enough that we don’t simply scratch the surface but get to ‘dig deep – rea […]

  • Yes, we’re here in Florida!

    The 1st time in this ‘humid & hot state’ since we bought the coach in June, 2014.  We spent Christmas and New Year’s in Naples, FL with family from Barrie, Boston, Tara & […]

  • In my younger days – not so long ago – I was in love with all things country – especially what I called Southern Country. I collected hearts, candle snuffers and santa’s. My favourite colours were navy, rust and c […]

  • We did! One afternoon in the Portrait Museum and the next afternoon in the American History Museum. We have our list ready for our next visit – likely next October.

  • I did the same taste test with Chuck and he picked Kraft. We’re too old to switch brands now! We’re going to be in Chandler, AZ the beginning of March attending a rally. You guys still going to be in AZ then?

  • We’re on the road November 30th!  One day earlier than our planned December 1st departure and 2 weeks earlier than our original thinking of December 15th.  We realized leaving Ontario on December 15th wasn’t reali […]

  • Have you heard that those living full-time in an RV are considered just one step away from being homeless?

    I was shocked when I heard it the 1st time. Us? Living full-time in the coach? One step away from […]

  • The alarm goes off at 5:30 a.m. and I throw the pillow over my head and think ‘maybe it’s too windy; maybe they can’t fly, maybe I can sleep in…’  The 2nd alarm goes off at 5:45 and I lift the blind, peek throu […]

  • We left Halifax heading 190 miles to Yarmouth, NS with a short stop in Lunenburg for some lunch and some ‘quick’ sightseeing. The town, seeped in history and beautiful colonial architecture, was designated a UNE […]

  • This Maritime trip is what Chuck is calling ‘the reader’s digest version’.

    We’re definitely travelling faster through Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia than we’d like – and, sadly, we’re missing PEI and New […]

  • Well…we have been on the road all summer but it’s mostly been in Southern Ontario, travelling between Barrie, Grimsby, Oakville and back again. Hardly seems blog worthy but it certainly was good to be home and in […]

  • It seems like only yesterday that we sold our house and picked up this Mechanical Marvel in Grand Rapids, MI to set out on our grand adventure and leave behind all that was familiar. At that time our plans were to […]

  • I don’t remember what I was thinking about when I was 12 years old – but it sure wasn’t about investing $$ in some stock.

  • If we all had invested $1,000 in BRK.A back in 1964 – our investment today would be worth $10,500,000.  Darn!

    We’re in Omaha at the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting – sometimes referred to as […]
