A Year in Review

September 2019 - June 2020. After an amazing 10 months on the road traveling from Georgia North to Dover, PA; West to Colorado and Hurricane, UT; South to Yuma, AZ, San Benito, TX through to Clermont, Fl and East to Yemassee, SC, we are back "home" for two months at our houseboat on Lake Lanier, Georgia (50 miles northwest of Atlanta).


During this past trip, we stayed at 32 campgrounds and 7 Walmarts. Keep in mind that we rode our Can-Am Spyders (3-wheel motorcycles) whenever possible to see the beautiful sites of this country. I have included links to videos associated with these trips.


Some of our most memorable stops were as follows:


Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.:

Such a beautiful home and property. Unbelievable craftsmanship.

Appomattox, WV and Gettysburg, PA National Museum and Battlefields:

We felt very humbled by this experience. The guides' stories of the civil war, slavery, the surrender and what these solders went through was amazing and made you feel like you were there.

Albuquerque, NM Balloon Festival:

One of my most favorite things EVER! We took a balloon ride, went down on the field for take off and the "glows". We even assisted with balloons that lost wind and almost landed on our RV.

Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado:

These well-preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings were amazing. The Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum has exhibits on the ancient Native American culture.

The Arches, Canyonland and Dead Horse State Park in Moab, Utah:

Utah was amazing and has some of the most beautiful scenery in America. Taking a guided ATV ride is definitely on our list to do again.

Spring Dale, Utah - Zion National Park:

Another beautiful display of God's work. The scenic highway was amazing.

Sedona and Jerome, Arizona:

Riding the bikes in this area of Arizona never disappoints. Sedona red rocky roads go up into the snowy mountains.

In addition to its shops and historic sites, Jerome has amazing scenery as it's built into the side of Cleopatra Hill, and from here you can see Sedona's red rocks, Flagstaff's San Francisco Peaks, and even eastern Arizona's Mogollon Rim country.

Tombstone and Bisbee, Arizona:

We took a trip back to the old Wild West and had a drink at Big Nose Kate's Saloon. Resident ghosts are said to haunt the bullet-riddled Bird Cage Theatre and we saw a gunfight. Then we traveled a bit further down the desert road to the quaint copper town of Bisbee.

Nuevo Progreso, Mexico:

Although we stayed at a park in San Benito, TX, we traveled across the border to do a little shopping, have an authentic Mexican lunch, get our teeth cleaned and pick up some medications. Yes, the cleaning is excellent.

New Orleans:

We took a shuttle from our campground to New Orleans for a day trip one day and then a night trip the next. Awesome food, drinks and entertainment. Can you say call an Uber?

USS Alabama Battleship in Mobile, Alabama:

Enjoyed a WWII battle ship tour and a submarine tour.

Gulfshores through to Florida and South Carolina:

Multiple stays and many wonderful things to see.
