My trip to San Diego…

OCTOBER 12, 2016. Mum’s been the word about our future plans. But that’s only because we hadn’t formulated them until now. We’ve made some decisions and plotted our course, so in short order I’ll let you know “what’s next.” And perhaps after you know where we’re headed you’ll have some suggestions for us. What to see and … Continue reading »

Not your average Joe…

IT’S THE PEOPLE. It’s the people I meet on our Great American Adventure. They are the ones who make our Journey special. The places and parks and cities and attractions are way fun. But it’s the people I want to meet. Here’s Joe Zeller, a retired Veteran of World War II.  Still a “regular guy” at … Continue reading »

The impact of hunger and food insecurity in America…

SOMETHING BOTHERS ME. Anyone who’s familiar with me and my blog knows one thing for sure. Greg is a guy who loves to cook. He loves to shop for farm to table ingredients, meet local farmers while doing so and share his love for food with an audience. But his passion is about lots more … Continue reading »

REO Speedwagon…

REPRESENTING A ROCK STAR. All divorce lawyers dream of representing high-profile clients. As you’ll remember, I’ve previously introduced you to NFL Hall of Fame member Fred  Biletnikoff and to Eddie Feigner, whose “King and His Court” fast pitch four man baseball team toured the country and sent many a Major League player back to the dugout. … Continue reading »

Like a chicken with its head cut off…

  WHAT’S COME OVER YOU, GREG? “You’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off. You were so sluggish while you were ill that we’d almost forgotten you could move this fast. So what’s up?” “Here’s the deal. Eight months ago the doctors told my wife I had only a few hours to … Continue reading »

Another interesting person…

ANOTHER INTERESTING PERSON. I met a guy this morning who’s definitely “a person of interest.”  As those of you who subscribe to my blog already know, I’m as interested in meeting people on our Journey as I am in seeing the sights through our commercial bus size windshield. I wouldn’t trade our visit to the red rocks … Continue reading »

DJI Phantom 4 Camera Drone…

June 6, 2016 JUST A MATTER OF TIME. I knew it. I just knew it. Florence and I have been married a long while. I have an uncanny ability to predict her next move. I’ve got a respectable batting average. I’m right about 85 % of the time. So, I figured it would be just a … Continue reading »

Another Blue Ribbon Tour of Pensacola…

ANOTHER BLUE RIBBON TOUR.  You’ve already met Jon York, our friend and the one who’s made our stay in Pensacola the best it could be.  The tour he gave us today was “top of the line.” In fact it was “over the top.” The guy is something else. Just when we think he’s already outdone … Continue reading »

Memorial Day Weekend…

May 30, 2016      MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States. A federal mandate years ago set the observance on the last Monday of May, creating a long weekend for most Americans. Since it’s also the traditional … Continue reading »

Saying goodbye to New Hampshire…

OCTOBER 16, 2015 MY STORY CONTINUES. Since we arrived in New England last June, we’ve stayed in New Hampshire on several occasions, for a total of about six weeks in the state. From delivering mail on Lake Winnipesaukee to driving the Kancamangus Scenic Byway in the White Mountains to a breathtaking ride up Mt. Washington on the … Continue reading »

Saying goodbye to Vermont…

OCTOBER 7, 2015 MY STORY CONTINUES as we prepare to leave Vermont in the morning. Even though we’ve “packed-up” hundreds of times, I always kind of dread the “chores” attendant to “breaking camp.” Everything must be stowed so it won’t slip or break as we drive down the road. The “patio furniture” and Weber grill … Continue reading »

Brattleboro, Vermont…

OCTOBER 5, 2015  MY STORY CONTINUES with observations and photos of Brattleboro, Vermont. Located in the southeast corner of the state, it’s just a few miles down the road from Hidden Acres Resort where we’re staying. Brattleboro is one of those places like Sandpoint, Idaho or Kennebunkport, Maine where upon seeing it for the first … Continue reading »

Wilmington, Vermont…

OCTOBER 1, 2015 MY STORY CONTINUES. My story continues with another close call about some pretty frightening weather conditions. You’ll recall that when we were in the Boston area last June, we had a tornado warning…not an advisory but a warning. There’s a big difference! After we scurried to safety, it turned out to be a … Continue reading »

Fall has arrived in New England…

SEPTEMBER 28, 2015 MY STORY CONTINUES. My story continues with our arrival a few days ago in the tiny town of Dummerston, Vermont, home to the state’s longest covered bridge, which spans the Connecticut River, and formerly home to the well known author Rudyard Kipling. About 2,000 folks call Dummerston home. It’s located at the outskirts … Continue reading »

Everything is just fine…

SEPTEMBER 24, 2015 I’M FLATTERED. It’s been a little more than two weeks since I’ve added a new post to my blog, and apparently some of you were getting worried. I’ve probably received a dozen calls and emails in the last few days asking, “Why has it been so long since your last post? Are … Continue reading »

Shelburne Museum – Day Two…

LABOR DAY. SEPTEMBER 7, 2015. IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME. RV’s were pulling out of Apple Island Resort this morning like rats leaving a sinking ship!  After a long summer vacation lots of kids return to school on the day following Labor Day, and of course many still-employed folks must get back to work after … Continue reading »

Shelburne Museum – Day One…

SEPTEMBER 6, 2015 THIS PLACE IS SPECIAL! Museums often bore me to tears. But not this one! Located in Vermont’s scenic Lake Champlain Valley near Burlington, its 38 exhibition buildings and their contents constitute one of the nation’s finest and most well known museums. Most of the buildings are historic, and were relocated to the … Continue reading »
