Waiting It Out On The Farm – A Trip On Hold, But Not Forever!

If you had asked Mary or I four months ago what could possibly postpone, or somehow temporarily put our trip around the country on hold, I am certain that we wouldn’t have responded with a pandemic. Perhaps a catastrophic failure with the truck or family emergency – but not a pandemic! The date was March […]

How A Stroll On Hilton Head Island Caused Us To Be In Pain, Day 184

If we told you that we were in pain after spending the day at Hilton Head Island, you might guess that is because we got a terrible sunburn. However, that is not the case at all. Although the temperatures reached into the mid-60’s, the wind was blowing quite a bit. Therefore, we wore shorts and […]

HALFWAY ACROSS AMERICA! Day 183 Of Our One Year Journey!

So hard to believe – but we are halfway through this amazing journey across America to see all 50 states. With the Leap Year in progress, our one-year trip covers 366 days. And that of course means that day 183 is the exact halfway point of our journey. So on this occasion, we celebrated with […]

The Story Behind Our Trip’s Saturday Morning Bloody Mary Tradition – Day 182

As we near the halfway mark of our trip, I guess it’s time to talk about our weekly tradition of snapping a photo of our Saturday Morning Bloody Mary. It is something we never thought would be a trending subject. But somehow, it is becoming a little more popular with each and every passing week. […]

A Beautiful Day Spent In Historic Savannah, Georgia – Day 181

No trip to Coastal Georgia would be complete without spending some time in Savannah, Georgia. And after a couple of days of constant rain, we welcomed the sunshine and headed to explore the city. Because we only had one full day to enjoy the sights and sounds of Savannah, we decided to start off by […]

Traveling Back In Time With A Visit To The Fort Pulaski National Monument – Day 180

We took on a different type of travel today, stepping back in time to the Civil War era with a visit to Fort Pulaski National Monument on Cockspur Island. Cosckspur Island sits at the mouth of the Savannah River, just 15 miles east of Savannah, Georgia. It is also sits just a mile or two […]

An Abrupt Knock On Our Door In The Middle Of The Night, Day 179

There has been nothing more terrifying on this trip than getting an abrupt and persistent knock on our door in the middle of the night. In fact, it was nearly three o’clock in the morning when we heard the first knock on our camper door. Being startled from a deep sleep, we both looked at […]

A Visit To Savannah’s Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens – Day 178

Any day spent strolling through a garden is a great day, and that was certainly the case today at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens in Savannah, Georgia. If you have followed along our journey, you know how much we love visiting gardens. And as always, each and every one we visit along the way has […]

A Day To Explore Tybee Island, Georgia – Day 177

Today we decided to head to the Atlantic Coast and ended up at Tybee Island, Georgia. And I have to say, we were more than excited to head to this location. That is because this is our first stop on the Atlantic Ocean since we have started our Journey Across The United States. Sitting just […]

Cracker Barrel Camping In Georgia – Can It Get Any Better? Day 176

We have truly discovered the absolute best way to camp when travelling between states and camping grounds – something we refer to as Cracker Barrel Camping! As we went headlong into our week in Georgia, we found ourselves with quite the long drive coming out of Florida. And to make matters a little tougher, we […]
