Where Have We Been – Up to Flagstaff Arizona – Albuquerque and Santa Rosa New Mexico – Amarillo Texas – Oklahoma City – West Memphis Arkansas – Nashville Tennessee – Virginia – Pennsylvania – Long Island New York – Ohio now – Heading for Michigan in a Few Days – South to Florida, West through Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and New Mexico – Back to AZ –

Here we are pausing for a week in Streetsboro, Ohio, not far from Cleveland. This park is a beautiful place. If we were to see nothing else in this area, we would be waking up each morning to natural beauty all around us and many other campers lining the narrow streets in the campground. We look like an elephant in a hallway driving into and out of RV parks, this one being no different. Our spot is generous. Sometimes camping sites are very narrow. We are enjoying the journey. This stop is not on our destination list. By that I mean it is not a place where we intend to stay and visit family or see the sights. It’s a stop on the way. We enjoy the spots on the way. We explore our surroundings, restock our refrigerator and basement, and find a brewery or restaurant in which to spend our time and our dime.

I have failed to post as often as I wish I would have. Many of our stops were for three days only. Three-day stops are better than one-day stops, but we still feel rushed. This year we had to be rushed to make it all the way to the east coast, Long Island (where we attended a family wedding), and now Ohio, then Michigan, down to Florida, across Texas, stopping again this year in New Orleans and winding up our tour with an entire month in Las Cruces, New Mexico, then back to our winter place in Arizona. Next year we plan to plan a restful tour! We will stay on the west side of the country and book long stays. Saying we will plan and successfully planning are two different things, but we will work hard to play more and drive less on our next tour.

    • Thank you for the vote of confidence. It is true that traveling wears me out. My plans to post get put off. Then we move again, and it’s a cycle. Blessings to you, Patricia…

    Hi Carol Ann, sorry I haven’t been able to keep up with blogging. I don’t know where summer is going in such a hurry.

  3. You need not apologize, Patti. I have not been posting or reading. Once we found family on our trip, time became an issue. We spent every minute we could find having fun with them. Then Hurricane Harvey forced us to rebook the trip across south Texas from I-10 to I-49 to I-20 and back to I-10. We made it only as far as Lafayette, Louisiana, just barely getting onto I-49, which goes north to Shreveport, where we will intersect with I-20, when we get moving again. A leveling valve failed and we are stuck in the Lafayette area (our park is five minutes from that city). The weather is lovely, the people are friendly, the park is adequate in every way, but we feel like moving on so we can get to our other destinations. Sometimes we realize just how much in life we cannot control. Blessings to you, Patti…
