You Can't Go Home Again......Or Can You?

Winter Garden, FL

Back in Florida we are; and here we'll stay for a couple of months. "But how did you get there?" you ask! The long way I reply. You may remember from the last blog that my mom, Sue flew to South Dakota in September to join us for a cross country trip in the motorhome......and what a trip it was. Joan, mom and I spent 6 weeks meandering through 13 states, visiting over a dozen different national & state parks, national monuments, grasslands and scenic highways on our way to Florida. In addition to that we got to stop and visit with family in 5 different states. Check out some of our pictures....

So now we're in Florida, probably until the end of March at which time we're headed north. We have secured our summer job for 2017. Along with Jim & Deb, Joan and I will be headed for New Hampshire where we will all be volunteering in the White Mountains near Lincold, NH. We are expecting a great summer with lots of side trips to visit friends and places throughout the northeastern portion of the US & Canada.

That's it for now. Stay Tuned. More to Come!

    1. Sorry for the long wait. I waited too long to post, then felt as though there was too much to cover. I think the new experiences and location in NH may spur more frequent posts. Miss you guys and your abinormal sense of humor. Looking forward to seeing you guys again.

  2. What a great trip...I'm sure your mom had a great time Steve. Ouray is awesome. It's been years since I had a foot long hotdog at the Braves games...looks yummy!

    Enjoy your time with more family and friends in Florida. New Hampshire sounds nice for the summer!

    1. We are so jealous of your off road adventures. We're hoping to be back out west in a couple of years with an extended visit in Ouray. Maybe you can join us!

  7. Looks like a great time! We loved Ouray too! SW Colorado was fantastic! We'll be in NH some point maybe in August. Not sure exactly where yet but if it's anywhere nearby, we'll look you up!
