After touring Holland, MI, we pressed hard north as we had a reservation at a RV Park, on Lake Leelanau, named, logically enough, Lake Leelanau RV Park, located about 15 miles West of Traverse City. We got a little lost, which ended up being OK, since we were privy to blossoming cherry trees, and beautiful [...]
Sirs. I am pleased to report that my troops have successfully achieved our mission by reaching the territory now referred to as the Straits of Northern Ohio. My troops are weary, to be sure, but in good spirits. We have scant provisions left, and the weather here remains cold, often accompanied by a dampness that [...]
We crossed the line into Illinois on this day, and pushed as far North as possible. We decided to leave the comfort and safety of the interstate, and branched off onto route 54 at Springfield, IL and headed towards a little state campgrounds on Lake Clinton.

Another trip someday, I guess, when gas is cheaper [...]

The RV Park in Needles was a welcome respite after blowing a spark plug on a busy freeway. LA did not want us to go, and ran some of its best defensive block plays in it’s playbook, until we were almost at route 15. We finally escaped her gravitational pull, and had relatively clear sailing, [...]
With a late start we headed to the freeways to get out of Los Angeles, but as soon as we got on the 10 freeway we came to a dead stop. According to Google Maps it was bad traffic for the next 35 miles. Right as we are preparing to merge into the 5 north [...]
