Timing is everything

When the kids were little, most summers Mireille would pack the three up in whatever car we had at the time and drive them three days to visit her family in Quebec. Since it was a three-day trip there and another three days back, she always made it worth it and stayed for a month…

Year One – By the Numbers

I try and keep a log of where we stay, how much it cost, and our impressions of the place so we know where we would like to go back to and what RV Parks we would rather avoid if possible. Here is the raw dump of all the different campgrounds we stayed in Charlie…

11+ Months Already!

This Valentine’s Day will mark our first anniversary full timing in Charlie. In anticipation of more than one First Anniversary post idea, I thought I would bloviate on some observations over our first year to date. Many of these would seem obvious to someone who has been doing this for some time, but there are…

8 months today!

Today marks eight months that we have been full time in Charlie! It is hard to believe how quickly the time has gone. We have learned a lot and have more yet to find out, but I know that we would not change a thing! We love getting to see what we have seen and…

Day trip to Baltimore

Gettysburg is undoubtedly a primary destination, but it is also well situated to take day trips elsewhere if you like. Hershey Pennsylvania with its chocolate factory is just a short distance away, as is Baltimore Maryland. Mireille and I were sitting at the bar in Gettysburg Eddie’s one Friday afternoon, discussing these two alternatives when…

Navigation “lessons” and Gettysburg

While we were in New York visiting Sonia, Doug, and Liam, our youngest son Gregory mentioned that for my birthday he would like to get me a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. I had wanted to go there forever, and in truth was planning to go after New York anyway, so this all worked out…

”What about our pictures?”

I got bitten by the shutterbug at an early age. When I turned seven, my parents gave me a Kodak Instamatic camera for my birthday. I did not have the camera long before they took it back from me again. I took pictures of everything, and getting a roll of film developed back then was…

Whew! (Arizona to Colorado)

  It has been a while since I last posted here. That is not because I haven’t had anything to say, but more because we have been busy. When last I wrote, we were crossing the two-month mark and were still in Mesa Arizona at the Mesa Regal RV Resort. We were there for a…

Giddy

That is how we feel right now. The house is gone, we have everything (and more as it turns out) that we need with us in Charlie, and since Saturday, March 31 we have been at a beautiful RV “resort” in Mesa Arizona. We are staying here the month of April visiting my brother and…
