East Coast Fall 2021 – Cedaredge

September 28 – October 2, 2021 A busy couple of months sped by at home as we celebrated a milestone birthday for me then hosted a houseful (sister Bev, Nephews Jed, and Dillon with McKenzie) while other folks stayed nearby.  Jessica, Kris, and Gemma would spend a couple of weeks with us, the longest together […]

ACA Idaho Trails Relaxed, Part Fourteen

June 24 – July 26, 2021 The next morning, we arose early, packed up and drove over to the Nevada Northern Railway Museum situated at the East Ely Yards.  They were designated a National Historic Landmark District in 2006 and the site was cited as one of the best-preserved early 20th-century railroad yards in the […]

ACA Idaho Trails Relaxed, Part Twelve

June 24 – July 26, 2021 We returned to the condo, had a snack, and then set out for the Old Idaho Penitentiary, about fifteen minutes away.  Parking was available in a small lot not far from the entrance to this imposing structure and so grabbing the camera, we set out for what would be […]

ACA Idaho Trails Relaxed, Part Eight

June 24 – July 26, 2021 Our drive to Richland, Washington the next day would take a little less than six hours, meaning we didn’t have to rush out of camp early in the morning.  Heir Angst had recommended that we stop along the way to check out the Stonehenge Memorial just off the I-84.  […]

ACA Idaho Trails Relaxed, Part Four

June 24 – July 26, 2021 We set out the next morning with just a three-hour drive, 126-mile drive from Gold Beach.  On the way we stopped 11-miles north of Florence, about 25-miles south of the KOA we’d be lodging at in Waldport, to visit the Sea Lion Caves. We’d been here once before, back […]

North Carolina Spring 2021, Part Five

June 3 – 14, 2021 Our drive to Greensboro (Summerfield) to Ann and Rendy’s would only take about ninety minutes, so again we had no need to hurry that Tuesday morning.  This gave us a chance to do a load of laundry (one advantage of staying in an Airbnb unit is often some form of […]

Hot Springs 2021, Part Two

May 13 – 24, 2021 With a long drive before us we hit the road not long after Little G went off to day care and made our way east to the foothills of the Sierras with the plan to take Highway 108 over Sonora Pass to Highway 395 and south to Lone Pine.  It […]

Fall Western States, Part Four

November 2 – 13, 20 With a seven hour drive ahead of us, not terribly long but would take most of the day, we left around 9am for Liberal, Kansas.  For most of the drive, our route would traverse a path we’ve covered a number of times in the past while visiting Beverly and Dillon […]

Fall Western States, Part Three

November 2 – 13, 20 Lunch ended with a minor mishap, which was that a glob of secret sauce and fish oil leaked from the sandwich, strategically missing the towel I had spread in my lap (we put together a kit for the car with two sets of silverware, lap towels and wash clothes to […]

Fall Western States, Part One

October 19 – 21, 2020, November 2 – 13, 2020 We returned home from Buellton on Sunday and the very next day drove to Henderson to spend three nights at Kim and Marty’s place along with Jessica, Kris and little Gemma.  With one exception, we’d stay close to the house spending quality time together as […]
