Jamestown- Past & Present 2010

Okay it has been sometime since I updated the Journal. If you didn't already know I have reached my destination, Jamestown, ND. I have survived 3 strong wind and hail storms since I have been her for a week. The wind today is blowing like crazy I think we might have another storm. On Friday of this week I walked downtown streets and took pictures of old buildings and new. I am calling this Jamestown, Past & Present. I will post all the pictures on the website plus I will add a few on the Blog. Hope everyone is having a safe and fun Memorial Weekend.
Enjoy this pictures.

Monday - May 17

Kind of scarey to think that I have not updated for the last 7 days. Just to give you a reason why is because on of my destinations was Refro Valley KOA camp. Mt. Vernon, KY would be a better point which is in RockCastle county. My good friend Marty Brooker has until June 3 a KOA which he will be turning the keys over to the new owners. Good luck in your future endevors and hope the last 6 years will not be just a blink but holds great memories. Was hoping to spend more time but work was not available so I am on the road again. I left Sunday May 16th and traveled and stopped just outside of St. Louis, MO dry camping at Lebanon, MO. Very nice Historical town with very friendly people. Dry camping is something that RVing allows you to use your own resources that are stored on board, water, bathroom with shower and kitchen. Met some really nice people from Alaska traveling thru and spent over an hour talking with them and their travels. I will post more pictures as I have them ready. I was hoping to drive with small trips but it rained all day yesterday and into the early morning that it made more sense to keep driving. Today I am just out of Kansas City, MO at another KOA camp ground whick is saturated with mud and water all over. Not fun pulling in with a 40 ft. rig with a car attached and trying to keep from getting stuck. Plans for tomorrow is to go to Omaha, NE. this about a 3 hr ride and should be interesting. I have not been there in over 30 yrs so I my just have a steak tomorrow. Getting close to North Dakota and should be there by Friday.
Hope you have enjoyed and I will try to add photo's soon.

Day 3 May9

Photo's from Sweetwater area and Cherokee National Forest.

Day 2 May 8

Saturday put me in a very interesting place called Sweetwater, TN. Stayed at a KOA campground and disconnected the car for a photo shoot. There is a place called Lost Sea which is a cave that you walk in and the cavern is a huge lake that is as clear as can be with lighting impossible to take pictures. So I decided to go to Cherohala Skyway in Cherokee National Forest. Long drive but worth the trip, beautiful forest with a great drive through pines and oak trees. First stop was Bald River Falls with people rafting down the river which flows very fast and very beautiful. I will post a picture of the falls.
The town of Sweetwater had many great photo's plus antique landscape to make my day worth the drive. Will be leaving for Kentucky tomorrow and stopping at Williamsburg KY. Enjoy!

Day 1 May 7

Okay, so I said I was going to take my time and make this a more photo opp. Left late on Friday and arrived at my first destination, Adairsville, GA. Check it out www.barnsleygardens.com
557 miles to the first location what a nightmare. Construction on 75 and 85 was unbelievable.
Going to Chattanooga today for photo's and possibly to Renfro Valley KOA camp ground.
Just to pass on what was experienced on the way was a girl got out of her car at a stop light on US 19 and danced frantically until the light changed. I could not get my camera video to work quick enought to capture that. Next major event is when you think you see tire tread on the road you think nothing of it just try to miss it. Well this tread was about 5 ft. long moving across the road, yes it was a gator and he lived to see another day. Close call. Hope everyone out there is having a great day!

We Are So Lucky!

We took these shots at Sunset Beach, here in Tarpon Springs when we just took some time to unwind and watch the beautiful sunset and sky. How lucky are we to live in such a beautiful spot, where we can watch the beautiful Florida sunsets and skies? VERY! We never get tired of it that is certain. Enjoy!
Life can be complicated, but happiness is really pretty simple.......

We Had a Great Time!

Vicki took this candid shot of our silly girl Saylor, who always wanted to be in the driver seat. (She looked pretty good up there too, we must say.)

We had a terrific time! It was quite the whirlwind vacation, but it was so special to us. We had such a wonderful time seeing all of our family and friends. We love each of you and it was so nice seeing all of you. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful and giving us so many lasting memories to take back with us!

Now it's back to work. : )
