“Empire State of Mind” – New York, NY

Everything on the east coast seems so close together. I had no idea before we were here that you could drive from Washington DC to New York City easily in a few hours. Well, easily in a car, that is. In a motorhome that can’t reverse when the car is being towed, it can be…

Early American Settlements – Jamestown and Williamsburg, VA

We found a state park called Chippokes Plantation just across the James River from Williamsburg and Jamestown, and posted up there for a few days. The campground was lovely. It was very serene and quiet, except the bald eagles calling as they flew forty feet above our head. No joke! I was hoping we’d see…

Terrain Change – Austin, TX and Lafayette, LA

We have departed from the desert lands of the southwest and are now officially in the “South.” It’s  funny how you get a picture of what a place will look like in your mind, and then you go through that place and God and nature show you otherwise. I thought all of Texas would be…
