The sun rose like a tinderbox throwing gasoline on the shadows it cast before us and great billows of steam rose from the blacktop as it heated up after the cool of the night.  We kept our eyes forward as we crept along through the rising vapors, certain the attack would come from the dilapidated more »

Remember the Alamo

We drove from Austin to San Antonio to spend the night for two reasons – to shorten the drive to Laredo and the Mexican border and to visit the Alamo. We checked the Alamo off the bucket list this morning. I’ve been excited by stories of the Old West since I saw the Brady Bunch more »

They say 110 people move to Austin every day and 108 of them want to drive a food truck and the other two just want to eat at a food truck. R, Coconut, J, and I arrived on Thursday at the Pecan Grove RV park near downtown. Someone on the Vanagon Facebook group mentioned this more »

My plan was to take the Indian Natch Scenic Freeway south out of Tulsa and into Texas, however, Cousin Anthony and his younger eyes were able to read the small print on the map better than me and my old eyes and informed me that it was actually the Indian National Scenic Freeway that we more »

We left Atlanta last Monday after spending four nights with R’s cousins. We were getting too comfortable with the air conditioning and pillow top mattress and I am sure they were getting tired of us using their laundry detergent to wash our clothes – I actually changed my shirt every day because I knew it more »

We have been doing a lot of interstate driving – I-95 and I-64 to Williamsburg; the interminable I-85 to North Carolina and Atlanta; I-20 through Georgia to Alabama; I-22 from Alabama to Mississippi to Memphis, Tennessee, I-55 to Arkansas – and I am amazed at how fast people drive and how noisy it is in more »

We spent Tuesday night in Walkerville, North Carolina, with Patti and Frank. Patti is sister to a friend from college and she and Frank have spent the better part of their adulthood living on a boat and sailing to various parts of the Northern Hemisphere or driving across the United States in a bread van more »

For the first three nights of our year-long overland trip to South America we stayed with my in-laws friends – the very generous David and Thao – in Williamsburg, Virginia, and looked like typical tourists – standing in line at amusement parks, over-eating at buffets, and swimming in the hotel pool.
